  Celestial marriage - MormonWiki - Mormonism - the LDS Church, Beliefs & Religion
Celestial marriage is a term used by Mormons to indicate a type of marriage that is designed and destined to last beyond the grave and into the eternities.
Eternal marriages don't just happen; they aren't considered a "checklist item" that can be performed at a specific place and time and then be forever done.
While the start of the eternal marriage may be dated to the point at which the sealing was done with proper authority, the couple must live their lives in a way worthy of the blessing of eternal marriage.

Eternal Marriage is a sacred covenant between a man, a woman and God performed by a priesthood bearer in the temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Eternal Marriage is legally recognized, but unlike other civil marriages, Eternal Marriage is not intended to be for time only or until "death do you part"; it is intended to continue into the next life after the resurrection if the man and woman do not break their covenants.
Civil divorce and marriage outside the temple is somewhat of a stigma in the Mormon culture although currently the Church itself directs its local leaders not to advise members about divorce one way or another.

 Science Fair Projects - Eternal Marriage
A sealing is performed either as a covenant marriage between a man and a woman, or as a sealing of children to their parents.
Unlike traditional, civil marriages, which LDS faithful believe are dissolved at death, Latter-day Saints believe that a couple who has been sealed "for time and all eternity" will be married beyond physical death.
However, "Eternal Marriages" are also performed vicariously for the deceased so that once all the prior temple ordinances are completed for a deceased individual, couples who were not sealed during their life may be sealed to each other and their children by proxy.

 Sermons - New Church in Australia, The -
But if a married couple, believing in the eternity of marriage and having love truly conjugial as their ideal, nevertheless find in the other life that there is a hitherto unsuspected internal dissimilarity that separates them, they will each be provided with a suitable partner with whom they may live as married partners in heaven.
If therefore the idea of what is eternal were eradicated, or if in any case it were to escape from their minds, it would be as if they were cast down from heaven...
There, when married partners tenderly love each other, they have what is eternal in their thoughts with regard to the covenant, and nothing at all of its end by death; and if they do think of this, they grieve, and yet in thought are comforted with the hope of its continuance after death" (CL 216a).

 Plural Marriage - Neither Permitted Nor Commanded   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Plural marriage was restored and the authority to seal eternal marriages was bestowed.
Those assuming plural marriage almost invariably were the finest types in the community Only men who were most worthy in their lives were permitted to take plural wives; and usually only women of great faith and pure lives were willing to become members of a plural household.
Eternal marriage is, therefore, sometimes referred to as "patriarchal marriage" or the "patriarchal order of marriage." Any marriage, whether first or plural, when bound by the sealing power of the priesthood is patriarchal and will admit of eternal increase for ever and ever as stated above.

 Eternal Triune Marriage as the New Definition of Marriage, by Peter Falkenberg Brown
If one assumes that marriage is only for one's physical lifetime, then it almost makes sense to move on to a better marriage if the first one isn't working out.
Since men and women are indeed "spiritual" in nature, and since God is the origin of all things spiritual, the marriage of one man and one woman becomes an "eternal triune marriage", where God and the husband and wife become utterly and completely one.
The depth of union in an eternal triune marriage is telepathic, empathic, resonant and interwoven to such a degree, with love and God as the glue, that the man and woman finally become "complete".
