What about someone who has been excommunicated from the church, that got a divorce from the first wife he had a temple marriage with, hasn't reconciled anything with the family and is now marrying a first cousin in a state it is legal? Can he obtain a temple sealing?

I`m the author of Mormons on the Internet, a best-selling book on Mormonism. As a serious Latter-day Saint, I am well equipped to answer questions related to
* Doctrine (What is a prophet? Are Mormons Christian? Why do Mormons do genealogy?),
* LDS Cultural and Practice (How should I dress for a Mormon service? How do I find out about Mormonism? Why do Mormons have so many kids?)
* History (What is a temple? Where did the Book of Mormon come from? What is the Hill Cummorah? What is the reason Mormons practiced polygamy?).


Having been a part of AllExperts since its inception, I have responded to hundreds of questions and been nominated countless times. The rating system permits pranksters, though, so I've disabled it. As a journalist and a committed member of the Church, I have written, taught, and lectured on the subject of Mormonism for decades.
