A “World View”:

A “World View” “Equallyokedtarianism” is based upon axiological morality as absolute historical, universal, and experiential ‘truth’. 1 - Philosophy 101: Meta-ethics

“…vision and roles…”:

“…vision and roles…” In ‘equally yoked’ dyads – multiple small studies showed that one another’s vision for marriage and the role that each individual in that dyad was to play – actually scored higher in clarity than that of individuals in unequally yoked dyads. 7 U.S.A., 2001 – Liberal Arts and Humanities –

An ‘Equally Yoked’ Dyad:

An ‘Equally Yoked’ Dyad An ‘ equally yoked dyad may very well represent a well balanced close relationship architecture, however, investigators are in search of much more... Equally yoked couples play a major role in shaping, attitudes, feelings, thoughts, habits and lifestyles. Researchers describe how these close relationships effect one another and just how important are equally yoked coupleships anyway. Dyadic psychologists study how these interpersonal relationships affect ‘ equally yoked ’ and ‘unequally yoked’ people alike - looking at sexual attraction, bonding and attachment, love, marriage, and family life. - SocPsy220


Compatibility A growing body of evidence supports research studies in Equallyokedtarianism that suggests : Equallyoked couples have a higher degree of consensus for marital success and improvement of individual or personal and marital habits. A few smaller studies have now proven that: In a survey Equallyokedtarian couples scored with ‘similarities’ in ‘civil identity’ as an identifying mark closely associated with homogenous compatibility. Equallyokedtarian couples rated - that it - symbolizes a high degree of social conventionality that is valued by society and even required by some conservative societies. - Soc202: Psychosocial Compatibility

“…prior to marriage…”:

“…prior to marriage…” A study in social psychology investigating marital couples - concerning after or during courting – that a couple clearly understood the difference in a couple being “ equally yoked ” or ‘unequally yoked’ and was discussed prior to marriage. Equally yoked scored better than unequally yoked couples. 13 Georgia, 2008 – Liberal Arts and Humanities –

Diverse POVs (Points of Views):

Diverse POVs (Points of Views) Theist “The Equally Yoked Couple? I believe the ‘Equally Yoked couple is a divine creation by God.” USA, 2016 Atheist “I don’t believe that God had anything to do with the sameness by, so called, ‘civil identity’ two-somes.” Agnostic “You can’t really prove God had anything to do with the pairing off of the sexes by ‘civil identity’.” IBID - Liberal Arts and Humanities - USA, 2015

“..teach their values..”:

“..teach their values..” “Many people who partake of ‘equally yoked’ coupleships extend their values into family. It is not uncommon for an ‘ equally yoked ’ couple to teach their values to their children. Rightly so.” France, 2003 Social Psychology – Liberal Arts and Humanities –


Theology “In the critical study of the nature of the ‘divine couple’ – the Bible teaches students of seminaries through God’s word that the “Equally yoked” couple is of religious truth--- a reflection of the divine plan . God’s aim was to provide a series of norms and expectations to serve as points of reference for couples from which salvation can be developed here on earth. Therefore, knowing this, it is only through God’s grace, faith, and practical experience do these Biblical guidelines, by individual choice, lead to joy and eternal life.” Reverend Kushe Sadela, 1979 1

A Psychosocial Study: :

A Psychosocial Study : Equally Yoked Unequally Yoked Trusting (hopefulness) Mistrustful of people Sense of will power Skeptical/doubtful Self motivated Feelings of Inadequacy Sense of competence* An inferiority complex A clear self identity A sense of role confusion Sexual intimacy achieved Sexually isolated/unhappy A sense of busy-ness Workaholism (a) * Also, “Coupleship satisfaction” - The Equally Yoked pair rated the highest level of relationship satisfaction over all. Although both types of coupleships shared in about the same level of ‘practical wisdom.’ 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Scores

Cohabitation & Common Law:

Cohabitation & Common Law A New clinical study has shown that there is a difference proportionately in cohabitation living and common law marriages amongst equallyoked couples compared to couples of other descriptions i.e., unequally yoked couples. Finding: Fewer equallyoked couples cohabitate Other (smaller) studies showed that there is somewhat more legal marriages amongst the Equallyoked couples. - Soc202: Legal Marriages
