[1 of 1] Swedenborg (1688-1772, Sweden): primary subject "Afterlife, marriage love in" (search under Afterlife/Afterlife, Heaven, Hell)": source "Heaven and Hell": detail "Section 382b"
Marriages in heaven differ from marriages on the earth it that the procreation of offspring is another purpose of marriage on the earth, but not of marriages in heaven, since in heaven the procreation of good and truth takes the place of procreation of offspring. The former takes the place of the latter because marriage in heaven is a marriage of good and truth; and as in that marriage good and truth and their conjunction are loved above all things so these are what are propagated by marriages in heaven.
