"True or false. A husband must call his wife after they both die."

I see no reason to think that the husband MUST call her, or that if called, she MUST comply.

Couples who do not maintain love and respect for eachother in this life can not expect to have it after death. God will work out the cases where one spouse is not to blame according to his wisdom, His counsel to us is focused on not becoming such an exception, so that is what we focus on.

My mother-in-law knew a lady who was married to a non-member. For ages she tried to help her husband gain a testimony, but he had no interest in participating in ANY religion. He died in a car accident and later someone said to her 'at least now you can go to the temple and be sealed to him' to try and cheer her up. She replied 'no, he had his chance'. A couple years later she met and married a faithfull member in the temple and was never sealed to her first husband.

You have verfied something I have said frequently and been told is not true..

A Mormon woman is alomost blackmailed into being sweet and compliant ...the realization that if her husband does not call her she can never get into the celestial kingdom is enough to keep any woman in line (and to put her on prozac for the stress)

He died in a car accident and later someone said to her 'at least now you can go to the temple and be sealed to him' to try and cheer her up. She replied 'no, he had his chance'.

How do you know if the dead husband accepted mormonism in the next life? And would he not be kept out of the celestial kingdom anyway as he was never through the necsessary ordinances??
