“Hyphenated life: Mixed loyalties in family life and faith” by Joyce Shin in The Christian Century of 12/10/14. Living well when a couple mixes faith or culture or both. Biblical reference: “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28, part of Paul’s letter to the Christians in Asia Minor). http:/bit.ly/1BLWvR3/  [Open it for $3.50 or request a copy at membermission@aol.com]
