Clearance Story - Jen's Perspective

Clearance storyThis story all begins on September 14, 2005.Greg and I had made the decision to get married the next time he was in town which would be October 15th (Sweetest Day).I called the St. Paul, MinnesotaTemple to make the appointment.They began asking me questions.One of the questions was “has Greg been sealed previously?” since the answer was yes they then asked “does he have a clearance?”.I was fairly new to this aspect of the gospel.I had no idea what a clearance was but I figured Greg knew a lot more about all of this than I did and answered “I’m sure he does.”They made the appointment for October 15th at 1:30 p.m.I called Greg to tell him we were scheduled and told him about the conversation I had with the temple worker.His response was “What’s a clearance?”This did not bode well for us.Fortunately, I had an appointment with my stake president, President Painter, later that evening in order to get my temple recommend (as I was going to be endowed on the 23rd).I went to th…
