But still, when we got engaged I was hesitant, and I believe my "yes" should have been at least a "let me think about it." In the last couple months since the engagement, he has finally started being honest about his beliefs.I truly believe that throughout college, his faith has slowly disappeared, and I don't think he was necessarily lying about what he thought before we entered the relationship, but at this point, I suppose he doesn't have faith at all.I have received a few emails from Christians (and even one from a non-Christian) asking if it is okay for a Christian to date or marry an unbeliever.Usually, by the time the question is asked, the relationship has gone far enough that a negative answer is going to be difficult to accept, even if it is the right answer.God has used “missionary dating” for some, so why not for you?As a single Christian, one of the questions which can dominate the thoughts is, “Who will I marry?But they are also never to be “unequally yoked with unbelievers” (2 Corinthians ).
The Bible, especially the New Testament, warns Christians to avoid idolatry.Is it a help or a hindrance to their spiritual health? Unfortunately, too many people do not take into account the extremely serious situation of children and their eternal destiny.Yet, because of "love" and because they listen to their hearts over the Word of God, many people marry unbelievers anyway...
