MARRIAGE – From the earliest days of the Christian faith, Christians have honored marriage, or holy matrimony, as a divinely blessed, lifelong, monogamous union, between a man and a woman.

THE BINDING RELATIONSHIP

Second Corinthians 6:14–18 warns believers against being “yoked together with unbelievers.” This prohibition is against binding relationships between saved and unsaved people. The root of the Greek word translated “unequally yoked together” is the word for a yoke, and is sometimes used figuratively to mean a coupling, a joining together.

It is wrong for a Christian to enter into a binding relationship with an unbeliever because, as this passage notes, righteousness can have no fellowship with unrighteousness, and light has no communion with darkness. There will be problems when those who have been regenerated are somehow bound to people who have not.
