    We’re not engaged yet, but yes, we consider ourselves “equally yoked”.  Darling SO and I love Jesus very much and are dedicated to living our lives for Him.  It would make a HUGE difference if we weren’t on the same page…we probably wouldn’t even be together.

    Darling Husband is a Christian.  I am not.  Doesn’t matter to either of us; we’ve worked out the differences between us and have a solid relationship.

    Definitely! Biblically speaking I could not follow God how He’s asked me to if I were in intimate relationship (friendship, marriage, business, etc) with someone that did not see/follow Him in the same way.

    Haha I’m sorry. I feel out of the loop.  What does being “equally yoked” mean?

    Question… Are you and your Fiance equally yoked ?

    Answer… YES, Mr TTR and I are on the same page spiritually.

    === === ===

    As for “equally yoked”… I think it is horrid terminology.  How represive is that ??

    We are not work animals, nor are we slaves to each other. 

    We are in a loving human relationship where we care for and nurture each other.  When times are good we work along side each other happily (not chained together)… when times are bad, we are also happy, but now to reach out a hand, and slow our pace to help the other navigate the way.

    Life is a journey… we are in it together both as a couple, and as individuals.  Being able to fully be both, makes us stronger.

    @sommer time its from the bible, 2 corinthians 6 14. be ye not unequally yoked with nonbelievers, for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness. i interpret it to mean that christians should be in relationships with other christians, being with someone of a different faith background may quote unquote hinder the growth of a christian, and maybe even corrupt their faith. thats just my interpretation of tho quote though. i for one am happy to be with someone who is of a similar faith background, ive had prior relationship with men of different faiths, and from my personal experience it wasnt fulfilling, to not be able to really share my faith. now, my fi and i pray together, and that is one of the most powerful aspects of our relationship.. so to put it blunty yes, we are equally yoked.

    @ChefDori:  Oh ok, good to know ๐Ÿ™‚ I thought from the other comment that perhaps it was a bad term…but anyway, yes, my fiance and I are “equally yoked.”
