This temple is in Kansas City Missouri LDS (Mormon) Temple. Erected 2012. This was the last temple that I attended with my wife of 10 years. It was during a Open House tour. She testified about how families can be together forever, while she was filing for divorce. Later when it was dedicated she didn't even want to do endowment together. We grew apart and she said that she was not in love with me.
