hmmm... I've never heard that the bible says marrying someone of a different faith is a sin. I don't believe it is a sin & I'm LDS. Could you perhaps direct me towards the place in the bible where it mentions that. I'm curious now. Thanks!

I don't know the "rules" on marrying different denomination but I do know you are not supposed to marry non believers. I suppose if you think someone is wrong in their form of Christianity you would be unequally yoked.

Yes, I have heard that. I wouldn't call my dh an unbeliever, but he is definately non-practicing(although he goes to church with me). I am a Seventh-day Adventist(Christian).

I know that it is going to be hard being married to someone believing so differently, and I would be lying if I said he doesn't pull me away from doing what I believe to be right sometimes. But I am trying hard. I also think it will be hard on our children, and hard for me to watch if they follow their dad. Hopefully he will just convert to my religion and all will be solved .

But yeah, I just wanted to say that the Bible also regards divorce as wrong. So now that I am in an 'unequally yoked' marriage, what should I do? I heard a sermon once talking about this, and they said that you should stay in the marriage if you are already in it and hope you can stay true to God.
