Hey all! I've contacted iVilllage about adding a new message board under Christian Families for prayers and support of women who are in un-equally yolked marriages (and relationships). I am waiting to hear back from them, but in the mean-time:

Here are some proposed names for the new board:

Mixed Yolks
Different Yolks

What are your ideas? Anyone interested in managing the new board?

I have asked the CMs to add the folder to the board.


Hopefully it will be done soon!


Blessings to you!!!

I personally think that is a better option than a separate board.

Thank you Mary, I agree!

Um, I don't want to be a kill-joy or spoilsport. But the scripture refers to a "yoke," which is the device used to bind oxen together for plowing. Oxen in unequal yokes would not pull at the same rate or in the same direction, and therefore wouldn't be productive for agriculture.
Maybe something like, "Different Strokes, Different Yokes"?
I do think it's a great idea.

Thanks for taking care of this, joyfulmom! To be a simpleton, we could call it Uneven Marriages. It should apply to those of different beliefs and to those who are married to other christians who do not walk the walk.

Can I ask why?

I tend to agree with you all. I know it is a term common to all of us who are in the faith, but perhaps its for those who are new to the faith, or who may be lurking and are the no believing spouses. *shrug*


I made up a poll so go check it out and vote!:)
