In the Book of Mormon a prophet named Lehi had a vision (See 1 Nephi 8). In this vision he saw a tree representing the love of God. The fruit of this tree was so delicious he wanted others to partake of it also. Numberless concourses of people pressed their way forward all trying to make it to this tree of life. The people found the path that led to the tree but when a mist of darkness descended upon them many wandered and were lost.
Our Heavenly Father does allow trials and temptations to enter into our lives. We must learn to make righteous decisions. However, we are promised that we will never have more than we can handle. We will never be tempted above that which we are able (See 1 Corinthians 10:13).

"In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established." Often scriptures in the Bible can be interpreted many different ways. This confusion is inspired by the devil. We know that not all of these interpretations can be correct seeing as they contradict one another. So just like a crossover in basketball we can crossover, or cross reference, from the Bible to the Book of Mormon. This eliminates confusion, thus, breaking the devil's ankles.
Check out Tad R. Callister's recent conference talk for further enlightenment on the subject.

As husband and wife get closer to God they also get closer together.
True happiness is to be found in eternal marriage not just 'til death do you part. This doctrine is found in the true gospel of Jesus Christ. President Hugh B. Brown gave a great talk entitled: The Latter-day Saint Concept of Marriage. I would suggest it.
No matter who you are whether you are married or single, the gospel of Jesus Christ can and will help you. I have seen it change individuals and families and I know it can help you too. There is truth in the adage: Families who pray together stay together.
