How could a quality marriage be built and maintained if you disagree on the most crucial issue in the universe—the Lord Jesus Christ?
Second Corinthians (KJV) tells us not to be “unequally yoked” with an unbeliever.
The imagery is of two incompatible oxen sharing the same yoke.
The same is true of two people who marry but don't share a common faith.
Like the oxen pulling in different directions, a couple who doesn't share a Godly foundation will clash and experience conflict.
The Bible also says, “Do not be misled: ‘Bad company corrupts good character’ (1 Corinthians ).
Having any kind of intimate relationship with an unbeliever can quickly turn into something that is a hindrance to your walk with Christ.
Paul goes on to remind believers that they are the dwelling place of the Holy Spirit, who inhabits their hearts at salvation (2 Corinthians -17).
Because of that, they are to be separate from the world—in the world, but not of the world—and nowhere is that more important than in life’s most intimate relationship—marriage.
What I mean is this: if fighting in your dating world means hitting, pushing, shoving, name calling, yelling, manipulating, or anything rude that occurs on a consistent basis then, of course, turn walk away. In bad relationships, bad things happen and will continue to happen if you let them. Wisdom always does now what brings satisfaction later.
For you, being smart means that after you leave the relationship you shouldn’t go back!
