When my oldest son got married, his future wife had to get permission from her previous husband before she could get a temple divorce and then remarry in a LDS temple. Mormon males don’t have to do anything similar. In fact, they can be temple married to more than one woman.
At a family gathering yesterday, one male relative was saying that his first wife (they were divorced years-and-years ago, and he had raised their only son) had requested permission to remarry someone else in the temple. And he had refused. He had not wanted the divorce in the first place, so he wasn’t going to consent to her temple remarriage. Ultimately his ex’s bishop had called and they had worked out a solution. The bishop would draft the consent letter and put it in the files (or wherever it goes, without a signature), thus allowing the marriage to go forth.
If this is still the practice of the LDS Church, it needs to stop. This practice is extremely sexist and very unfair to the women of the Church.
