The answer is both yes and no. The answer is yes because the memories of every life we live become an eternal part of our soul’s journey. And every life and every relationship is sacred and meaningful. So this will be true for you and your spouse. It is a relationship that will stay with you both forever.
The answer is also no because marriage is a human concept, so it doesn’t really fit into the reality of the spirit world. However, we are able to continue with those roles during our shift back into the afterlife until we are ready to embrace our spiritual essence. In actuality, though, we don’t need to maintain our human roles. Relationships are much deeper and more intimate in spirit than we can possibly imagine as humans. There are no hidden secrets between spirits since we can read one another’s minds. Therefore, there is no need for best-friend pacts or marriage contracts. Relationships are completely organic and authentic.
While relationships carried over from our physical lives always remain special to us, once we cross over and recognize the intense connections we have in the spirit world, we no longer crave the human marriage relationship that we knew from our human life. And, of course, since we are beings of light (pure energy), sexual relations no longer exist either.
Still, my answer to this question is not meant to minimize the significance of our human relationships. Loving relationships like the spousal relationship are bonds that last for all eternity. The intimacy and affection shared between souls is never forgotten. We are not just playing roles here on the physical plane like actors in a theatrical production. What we do as human beings matters. Our words, actions and even our thoughts hold considerable meaning and consequence. Thus, you and your spouse will carry the significance of your relationship with you to the other side.
I have been with my wife, Melissa, since she was twelve and I was fifteen years old. We were childhood sweethearts who never left one another’s side. For most of our lives, we have spent every single day together. We live together, work together and play together. It’s a very special bond.
As nice as that is, I won’t be surprised to learn that my wife, Melissa, is more spiritually advanced than me, which means that she likely vibrates at a higher frequency. I’ve never met another person who is so loving, unselfish and compassionate toward people, animals and even insects. She is my greatest teacher in this life by example alone, and I am a better human being due to her insightful advice and words of wisdom.
As a result, let’s suppose that Melissa will reside at a higher level than me in the spirit world. It’s important she be surrounded by people in spirit who are at her level (in frequency and wisdom) in order that she further learn and grow. But that doesn’t sadden me because I know our bond will last forever. We can say, “We’ll always have that wonderful life as husband and wife together.” That doesn’t mean we need to spend every moment of eternity side-by-side. At the same time, I have little doubt that we will share other lifetimes together. We might be siblings, friends or even rivals, but I welcome any additional human life that I can spend in her presence.
