Instead, I will be damned, meaning that my progress will be stopped. In short, I must receive every ordinance of the gospel and abide by every associated covenant if eternal life is my desire. The covenant activates, or gives life to, the ordinance, just as an engine activates a car and enables it to transport its occupants from one place to another.
Some people, including some Church members, inaccurately read Doctrine and Covenants to mean that plural marriage is necessary for exaltation, leading them to believe that plural marriage is a necessary prerequisite for exaltation in the eternal realm. This, however, is not supported in the revelations.
As recorded in Doctrine and Covenants and , the Lord introduced the law of eternal marriage by expressly referring to the sealing of one man and one woman see Doctrine and Covenants —7, 15— By setting forth the law of eternal marriage in the context of a monogamous marriage, the Lord makes plain that the blessings of exaltation, extended to each man and each woman who worthily enters into the covenant of eternal marriage performed by proper priesthood authority, are independent of whether that marriage is plural or monogamous.
Any man and woman who are sealed in this way and who abide within the covenant will be exalted. These same covenants and blessings will be made available after this life to the faithful who did not have the opportunity to be sealed in mortality.

After revealing the law and covenant of eternal marriage between one man and one woman, the Lord taught Joseph Smith that a man can in righteousness marry more than one wife within the covenant of eternal marriage when authorized or commanded by the Lord through His duly ordained prophet who holds the relevant priesthood keys. Years later, the Lord rescinded His authorization and command for Church members to enter the practice of plural marriage in other words, be sealed to more than one living spouse when President Wilford Woodruff —98 issued the Manifesto of Notably, the Manifesto does not preclude any worthy man who has been sealed to a wife now deceased from being sealed to another, living spouse.
Monogamous marriages for time and eternity, solemnized in our temples in accordance with the word of the Lord and the laws of the Church, are Celestial marriages. Nephi and his people were denied the power to have more than one wife and yet they could gain every blessing in eternity that the Lord ever offered to any people. In our day, the Lord summarized by revelation the whole doctrine of exaltation and predicated it upon the marriage of one man to one woman.
Thereafter he added the principles relative to plurality of wives with the express stipulation that any such marriages would be valid only if authorized by the President of the Church.
