In this volume, Swedish visionary Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) discusses marriage from a spiritual perspective -- the ways in which men and women relate to each other both in this world and in the afterlife, and how marriages in heaven can either grow into a state of bliss and unity or wither away as partner discover their incompatibilities and seek their true soulmates. Swedenborg includes his perspective on sexual relationships in this world, both in and out of wedlock, and how the choices that we make affect our spiritual development. Interwoven with the text are numerous examples of his experiences in heaven.

This edition is a reprint of a 1915 translation by Samuel M. Warren, revised by Louis H. Tafel.
