Question: I have a church sister who is a Christian who will be marrying soon. The question I am asking is if she will be unequally yoled if she marries her son's father, since he is a backslider and she is still in church?

Answer: When a believer marries an unbeliever, the believer is unequally yoked. As to the wisdom of this particular sister marrying the father of her son, we defer to the judgment of her spiritual leaders. We certainly hope she is listening to them carefully.
