I was just wondering about this myself. The Christians I've dealt with (mostly Protestants, one Roman Catholic) have generally maintained, on the basis of Matthew 22:30, that there is no marriage in heaven [they rarely distinguish between a disembodied state after death and the "resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come," which, if I understand Orthodox theology right, are different things]). Additionally, Fr Laurent of Orthodox Answers takes this position. OTOH, the OrthodoxWiki article on Holy Matrimony says "It serves to unite a woman and a man in eternal union
before God..." and that "Christ declared the essential indissolvibility of marriage in the Gospel." It also says "For the Orthodox Christian, the marriage service (wedding) is the Church's formal recognition of the couple's unity, a created image of God's love which is eternal
, unique, indivisible
." (emphases mine)
Only to a point. If a person says that there is sexual intercourse in heaven, he hops on the train to Heresyville.
Should this be taken to refer to the disembodied state of heaven in which the saints now reside, the life of the world to come, or both? And not to challenge you or say you're wrong, but just for my own edification and understanding, is this idea condemned in Scripture, by an Ecumenical Council, or simply rejected by the consensus fidelium
