Today, nearly one in five new marriages is between a Christian and a non-religious partner. This kind of “unequally yoked” marriage can lead to arguments over many things including priorities, values, and attitudes. There are also questions of whether to raise the children as Christian or atheist, whether to allow the religious spouse to donate to their church, and whether religion should be a topic discussed in the home.
While each relationship has its own unique challenges, Lee Strobel, the author of “The Case for Christ," says there are a few marriage tips that can really help those who are unequally yoked to bring peace back into their marriage.
The first step is to make sure your spouse still knows that they are the most important person in your life. It’s also important to focus on the qualities that you love about your spouse rather than focusing on their unbelief. Be sure to always stick to your Christian values while dealing with topics of potential conflict. And finally, when teaching religion to your children don’t turn them against your spouse. Instead, teach them mutual respect for both parents.
