Mark 12:25 Commentary - Whedon's Commentary on the Old and New Testaments
25. Are as the angels Their bodies are divested of their earthly grossness and become ethereal and glorious. As none are born in heaven, so none are married. The appetites of the body, and all the affection thereon founded, cease. The love in heaven may be the continuance of love on earth. It will doubtless often exist between the same parties. But it will be purer, more blissful, and glorious.
