GENERAL INDEX.

PART THE FIRST.

PRELIMINARY RELATIONS RESPECTING THE JOYS OF HEAVEN AND NUPTIALS THERE, n. 1-26.

ON MARRIAGES IN HEAVEN, n. 27-41.

The love of the sex remains with every man after death, according to its interior quality; that is, such as it had been in his interior will and thought in the world, n. 46, 47.  Conjugial love in like manner remains such as it has been anteriorly; that is, such as it had been in the man’s interior will and thought in the world, n. 48.  Married partners most commonly meet after death, know each other, again associate, and for a time live together:  this is the case in the first state, thus while they are in externals as in the world, n. 47*.  But successively, as they put off their externals and enter into their internals, they perceive what had been the quality of their love and inclination for each other, and consequently whether they can live together or not, n. 48*.  If they can live together, they remain married partners; but if they cannot, they separate, sometimes the husband from the wife, sometimes the wife from the husband, and sometimes each from the
