I was crying when I read this :(
I’m a Christian for only few years. But, I studied the bible almost daily and went to church regularly. So it is not like I do not know anything.
I’m sure that you do not commit a sin when you date or marry unbeliever.
I’d say it makes marriage easier and safer. You will be happier, but it is really up to you since biblically Paul asked only Corinthians to marry believers because they were influenced by other religions making them in danger to lose faith. Therefore; if you trust yourself that he won’t influence you somehow then you may consider it. There could be other risks. Just do not listen to whoever says it is a sin, or you can’t date him. There are many things Paul asked Corinthians to do while he did not ask others.
My marriage would not have happened probably if I did not become a believer myself. We are separated for *the second time now* not sure if telling you this will help you or not. I’m just telling you my experience so yeah it could have risks. Basically, for me I tend to be liberal and I do not like a lot of rules he asked me to follow. I was not able to adapt to completely new life and actually I do not want all those rules in my life.
“Also, I am pretty amazed that it took a whole year for you to even talk about faith and God together because its so vital. Sorry but that surprises me so much.
