Object Lessons on Marriage

Object Lessons on Marriage
One object lesson I have seen is to take two quarters and put them in a ziploc bag.  Talk about how the quarters are a man and a woman.  Give them some “penny” or “nickel” kids.  Put the family in the bag.  Seal the bag and talk about how through temple marriage, we are sealed together forever. Turn the bag upside down and show how the family all stays together.  Then
put them in the bag again without it being sealed.  Turn the bag over and let the coins fall on the ground.  Talk about how those who aren’t sealed may have a good marriage; they may be happy for now, but without the sealing there is nothing they can do to be together forever.
