“It [romantic love] is not only a part of life, but literally a dominating influence of it. It is deeply and significantly religious. There is no abundant life without it. Indeed, the highest degree of the Celestial Kingdom is unobtainable in the absence of it.”
Boyd K. Packer, Eternal Love – BYU Fireside (Provo, UT: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 3 November 1963), audio – 8:30 mark.
