Yes you are but check this out. Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands: that if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives, While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with far. 1 Pet 3:1,2. I got saved after marriage and lived as holy as I could with kindness and love in my mouth. Hubby is now savved!!

Living as a GOOD christian exammple and lifestyle is easy, when they don't see you every hour of the day, However, when they see you 24/7, The test gets harder.
However, Philipians 4:13, Romans 8:26-28, enables us to do it.
Some Great books: Men from Mars, Women From Venus, For Women Only by Shaunti Feldham, and "Unequally Yoked"

Moderator gave you the exact biblical answer.

I agree with Moderator. Yes you are. Pray for your husband to get saved. There is a scripture in the book of Acts in the bible that says, You shall be saved, you and your household. Believe God to save your husband. Pray every single day for his salvation. Loose the Holy Spirit of conviction upon him. The Bible says, "When He comes (talking about the Holy Spirit) HE will convict the world of sin." Loose the Holy Spirit of conviction upon your husband daily. Pray for his salvation every day.

You are unequally yoked by circumstances, not from choice. God knows this. This is not disobedience on your part as it would have been if you had been a Christian before marriage and married a non-Christian.

Yes, you are unequally yoked. But, you are still married in God's eyes.

Read I Corinthians 7, this will answer your question.

Don't see this "unequally yoked" thing as anything but an opportunity to win your husband to Christ. You aren't in disobedience to Him if you made a decision to accept the Lord after you were married. Stay married and lead a life that is an example to your husband. That is the right thing to do at this point.
