He told The Christian Post in an email that "marrying an unbeliever brings a lot of negative baggage with it."And even though "the Bible is definitely full of scriptures that discourage and redirect believers from marrying unbelievers, it is nonetheless a fact that it happens all too often," Fox stated.
