Our Father in Heaven desires that each of His sons marries a worthy young woman in the temple and establishes a family that will last throughout eternity. The role of husband and father in a family, both in time and in eternity, is the most important role that a man will ever have. This role was very important when the Aaronic Priesthood was originally given because in that day the priesthood was conferred solely upon worthy men by descent. Quorum instruction and activities should teach young men the importance of temple ordinances and help prepare them for the role of husband and father.
