|From the movie : Joseph Smith Prophet of the Restoration|
So when we went to the house where they spent the first few weeks of their marriage, my ears and eyes perked up a bit.
After Joseph tried unsuccessfully to get Isaac Hale to give him his blessings in marrying his daughter. He decided to marry Emma anyway. She was "the choice of his heart". He loved her, and knew she was the one the Lord had prepared to be his wife, and to be of comfort and support to him in his very important call as the Prophet of the Restoration. I am sure he hoped the support from his father-in-law would come later.
