I think to answer your question it would help to understand what an unequal yoke is. II Corinthians 6:14 tells us to not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers.

In The Bible days when people would plow their fields they would use an equal yoke. Which simply meant they would use two oxen, or two cows, two mules, etc... It was an equal yoke so the animals would pull a straight line. If you put an ox and a mule together it would be crooked.

Christians are not to yoke together with unbelievers. That doesn't mean that we are supposed to shut everyone out of our life that isn't a Christian, but it means that those closest to us should be of the same faith that we are.

Also don't think that God is concerned about whether you marry a rich man/woman or what ever other social reason. God is not concerned about any of this and this is a misunderstanding about being unequally yoked. God is concerned about your faith first and foremost.

I truly believe that equally yoked is so simple that we miss the whole idea. It simply means that THE MOST HIGH has set everything into motion and for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Answer The chaste for the chaste, The adulterer for the adulterer, the fornicator for the fornicator etc. this way no partner can hold any past doings over their partners head, because the have committed the same offense.
