Consider how many people in the Church today believe they will be perfectly happy in the Telestial or Terrestrial.  They simply don't want any more than that.

I hadn't thought of it directly prior to now, but this could be yet another casualty of Satan's attack on the family.  Those who have experience in loving families naturally and deeply desire for those relationships to continue throughout eternity.  But those who have no such experience (whether it's just absent or it's replaced by negative family experiences) may think, "why in the world would I want to spend eternity with my (or a) family (since all my mortal family experience is negative)?"  For them, Satan's successes in destroying the basic family unit make the idea of "eternal families" a hurdle to overcome rather than a desired end...

My mistake.  You're right.  I mixed up the two.

But it does make my point in a different way.  The fact that an angel had to teach him these things at around 74 BC says that the doctrine was not around at the time of the Brass Plates.  i.e. It was not taught, nor was it found in scriptures.
