Will there be marriage after the resurrection?
In case anyone is still reading, a positive (though possibly speculative) case can be made that male-female relationships similar to marital bonds can continue between the redeemed into the next life. This may then also imply a romantic, physical or even sexual aspect in such a relationship.
Below are some websites that make this positive case (across
Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Protestant strands of Christianity).
Each website does deal with the marriage pericope of Mt 22 to a
lesser or greater degree -
Whether you find these arguments convincing is ultimately up to you.
PS. please note according to historic Christian doctrine, the
next life involves the resurrection, which is physical in nature,
and is not to be identified with "heaven" (where the redeemed go
after death to await future physical resurrection of their bodies)

One could question whether a spiritual being is alive in the known definition of the word. Answer: A group of Jews who didn't believe in the "resurrection" tried to trip Jesus up with a convoluted resurrection question once... and this was His response: "...The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage: but they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain to that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor…
A born again believer (Christian) believes that when you go to heaven, no one will be given in marriage. Luke 24:34-36 states "And Jesus said to them, 'The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage, but those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage, for they cannot die anymore, because they are equal to angels and…

Matthew 22:30 says "at the resurrection, people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven." Marriage is a relationship designed by God to provide human companionship that Man could not get directly from God (Gen 2:18-25). Once in Heaven, a marriage between a man and woman is not necessary because that relationship between man and God is restored.
The end of what? This question is very reminiscent of the question of the Sadducees to Jesus in Mark 12:20-23. They asked, essentially, if a woman had been married, and her husband died and she married another man, and he died and she married another man, and so on, who would be her husband after the resurrection? It's important to understand that the Sadducees did not believe in resurrection at all; the purpose of the…
In the King James version the word 'resurrection' appears 41 times, but each occurrence of the word 'resurrection' does not always refer to Jesus Christ's resurrection. There are many other ways the Bible describes or refers to the concept of resurrection but it is not possible to list them all here.
