  • The question was not entirely clear, because most churches will believe in eternal marriage--that of the Lamb (see Revelation 19:7-9). But human marriage post-resurrection/translation is unbiblical (see Matthew 22:30; Mark 12:25; Luke 20:35).

Christian denominations that believe that human marriages are, or can be, eternal:

  • The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the largest church belonging to the Latter-day Saint Movement. I'm not an expert on all the splinters, merges, schisms, seperations, etc., but I believe the LDS Church is the only one of the Movement that believes in eternal marriage. (The Fundamentalists might, but they're so secretive and the media is filled with so much noise that it's hard to tell. If true, then the "Brighamite" branch of the Moment believes in eternal marriage, but no other.)
