Thank you for your comments, Dyany.  I like your perspective.

Just to add my individual experience.  I became a member as a divorced mother of two at 26.  It was not until I was 40 that temple attendance in any form was encouraged for me.  There were various explanations why, and I myself felt unworthy to be endowed so it was not a priority.  My endowment present from God was my beloved companion. I firmly believe that. Who knows if we will ever be sealed.  Until Dyany put it into words, the access and obedience issue was not on my mind, but now as I think of it the phrase priestess to your husband probably bothered me a bit, but only because Himself is stiffnecked and inflexible....even though a sterling person in every other way.  I grieve that sealed people have not been completely satisfied with the covenant language.  Because I have never been sealed to a spouse, I possibly was oblivious.  The longer I live the more I know I do not know.  I expect to attend in March with the Crow family for our annual visit.  I think hearing the changes in English first will be helpful.

So I found this interestingly relevant quote from what happens to be the diary of one of my wife's ancestors:

"Prest Snow informed me he had not been able to obtain information why women were required to vail their faces when at prayer in the Temple." - Samuel W. Richards diary, Sept 12 1894

It's somewhat amazing to me with all the descriptions and explanations given to so many other details at the time, the leadership of the Church - including those of the First Generation who would have been with Joseph and Brigham Young - did not even have an explanation of why this was being done while still in the 19th Century.

Why is that amazing?  There are numerous things that haven't been revealed to us.

My two single sisters received their endowment 32 years ago with no mission or husband in sight for either of them.
Taalcon, could you please link to where you got that information. Thanks.

Replying without catching up to the thread.

As recently as three years ago, my daughter was being told no recommend without mission or marriage. In Rexburg.

Different Bishops/Branch Presidents and Stake Presidents, different mind sets.

Just got back from the Temple.

Yeah, go check it out. The opening FP introduction leaves no confusion for the reason and intent behind the revisions.

It was a very uplifting experience, and was heightened by listening so intently for the many subtle (and not so subtle) changes in wording all throughout. Definitely gave me some new things to think about.
