This passage highlights the dangers of Christians marrying non-believers.
From my devotional....
But oftentimes even some believing children toy with relationships that grow deeper than they expect, sometimes ending in marriages in which either the Christian relegates Christ to the margins of life, or the unbelieving partner is marginalized, leaving both parties feeling lonely and unhappy.
When our children's hearts become entwined with those who do not share faith in Christ, they resist the reality that pursuing a relationship with another person who has little to no interest in building a life around Christ will make them miserable over the long haul. They're convinced that somehow their case will be the exception. They insist that the unbelieving spouse will be supportive of their Christian faith. They are convinced that the two of them are soul mates. Blithely optimistic, they're sure that their passion and commitment will overcome all obstacles.....
a romantic entanglement with an unbeliever has the potential of becoming a snare and a trap, something that may seem so very right in the moment but will bring great sorrow and loneliness over their lifetime.
So important to impress this on our children!
