When two people are dating — especially when it’s going well and two people are really into one another — the desire to spend more and more time together, to know each other better and better, to confide in each other more and more often and exclusively, is overwhelming.
The Bible is clear that a Christian is never to marry a non-Christian.
Expecting an unbeliever to become a Christian following marriage is unrealistic and will likely lead to years of frustration and conflict.
If the unbeliever consents to living with the believer, the believer is to behave in such a way that the unbelieving spouse would want to become a Christian.
If the unbeliever leaves the Christian, the Christian is no longer bound to that spouse (1 Corinthians ), If the same concept applies to the case where a non-Christian abandons a Christian, one could conclude that being freed from the marriage allows one to remarry.
An unbeliever who practices Christian-like morality is going to be attractive to a Christian.
