I know my marriage vows said "'Til death do we part," however, I took that to mean...forever.
Sure, I know there is no marriage in Heaven. That doesn't mean there ain't no special connection between wives and husbands. How could there not be?
Just as there are special connections between friends or relatives we love.

Of course, I could be wrong, but I don't think so. It's not like the bond we form with our wife or husband simply disappear after the death of our bodies.
It will be different in Heaven, of that I am certain, but it will be better than anyone can imagine, and I can imagine a lot, so it's gonna be awesome sauce all the timelessness.

You know, sometimes I try to imagine 'better than I can imagine.' Perhaps it's pointless to do that, but since love and Heaven are good things I would like to think it isn't pointless at all, as long as I don't get obsessed with it.
The bonds of friendship n' love are truly liberating.
I know it liberates me from utter despair n' hopelessness.

I think about the afterlife a little, not its existence, which I think about all the time, but what it is like. I really can't imagine it. I take it on faith that it will be awesome.

It seems most earthly pleasures fade or you always need more to get a kick. So it can't be like this.

I cooncur, John.
One thing I'm certain of, the song 'I Can't Get No Satisfaction' won't be on Heaven's jukebox.

That's true. Contentment.

Yes, forever is what I meant, too.

Hi Mush,
Aye, contentment, serenity, peace, and peak slack.
