Being Unequally yoked together in marriage. Genesis 2:18-23 Explanation For 2 Corinthians 6:14

I have seen and heard Christians argue about the possibility of marrying from other religions, without the conversion of the individual firstly. And the likes. Nevertheless, the Bible has clearly declared God's stance on it, with Paul gaving an admonition (in 2 Corinthians 6:14 KJVS), on what God Himself applied with Adam. Please read to the end.

2 Corinthians 6:14 KJVS

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers:

Genesis 2:18-19 KJVS

And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. 

God said it is not good for the man to be alone. That HE will make an help meet (in other words suitable) for him. 

Hear what happened next... 

[19] And out of the ground THE LORD GOD FORMED EVERY BEAST OF THE FIELD, and EVERY FOWL OF THE AIR; and BROUGHT THEM unto Adam TO SEE WHAT HE WOULD CALL THEM: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

 Question

Did God forget what he was saying that He went to create? When he was looking for a help meet for Adam.

See the text together 

Genesis 2:18-19 KJVS

And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

[19] And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; AND BROUGHT them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

The story did not end there. There still is no help meet for Adam. See the next verse 

Genesis 2:20 KJVS

AND ADAM GAVE NAMES TO ALL cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

Adam gave names as expected of him by God. But God's desire for bringing the creatures to him was not yet achieved. See the b part of the text

but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

Why on earth will the text bring this topic up again? Unless there is a hidden agenda for bringing them (the creatures to Adam). And this agenda was revealed in verse 22

Genesis 2:22-23 KJVS

And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, AND BROUGHT HER UNTO THE MAN. [23] And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

An action has been repeated here. Can you guess it? 

After every creation since God embarked on the quest for finding a help meet for Adam, he brings them to Adam to choose an help meet for him. 

Why did he not name other creatures woman?

It was because they had different life in them. They had no soul neither do they have spirit. That means they were not like him. Adam had the breath of God but the other creatures didn't. Can see why a Christian can't marry a nonbeliever?

Even though the nonbeliever is a human. Paul calls this been unequally yoked together.

2 Corinthians 6:14 KJVS

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

See Adams response when he saw the new creature that God has brought this time... 

This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

At this point I can imagine Adam very happy. Have you had that moment where you finally found what you are looking for after walking from one store to another in despair? Or scattering your belongings in search of a choice dress? I think Adam had that excitement too. Eve was worth his waiting.

So, don't be in a hurry to marry, and stop that saying that if you love each other, you can marry, irrespective of religion. That's why man (male and female) can now come out and publicly Wed a Cow, Dog or even cat. What a degradation of royalty!
