[David O. McKay]

... a single living woman may be sealed while living to a deceased man, a friend but not a husband; ... the Church does not permit the sealing for eternity only of a single living woman and a married living man. In other words, in the case submitted[,] if Sister W---- wishes to be sealed to the man she mentions after he passes away, or if he wishes to have her sealed to him after she passes away, this may be done inasmuch as both parties have expressed their desire in life to be so sealed, this expression having been made in the presence and with the approval of the man's living wife.
