Humans in the Resurrection

The Sadducees did not believe in the resurrection, believing they had the ultimate proof against it. They knew of a woman who married a man, but he died, so she married his brother, and then he died and this continued until she had been married to all seven brothers.
In the resurrection they could not imagine that she would have seven husbands. After telling the Sadducees that they were mistaken, because they did not know the Scriptures nor the power of God, Jesus then said, “For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels of God in heaven” (Matthew 22:30).
Jesus did not say humans become angels, but they are like the angels in that angels do not marry. Therefore, in the resurrection and in heaven, we no longer retain our marriages.
