Actually the bible does talk about getting into relationships with nonbelievers and it says to never do it because youre putting yourself in line with the devil, and it will bring you down,

It says believers should not get "unevenly yoked."

Wow yoked seriously! God didn't write the bible, people did who claim they heard from God.

And has been rewritten and misinterpreted over thousands of years.

She and i are still together. She still goes to church every sunday while i stay home and watch football. Looks like she will be coming to hell with me even though she worships God and devotes alot of her time for Him! :-P

I glad you are considering this. Maybe it's time to talk about the religion difference and explain to each other about what you believe and why you believe it.

The bible says do not be yoked unequally. If she truly believes the Bible your relationship will fail.

There's a lot more to a relationship than looks. Over the years, your looks will fade, & the realities of life will rear their ugly heads. One of you will need to convert. If you truly feel she's that terrific, why not consider it?

Youre right. Theres alot more to relationships than looks. Theres also personality, emotional compatibilty, common interests, political beliefs, chemistry, sexual satisfaction, and a connection that transcends words. We must have all of them because we are still together. Our 2 year anniversay is coming up. She still goes to church every sunday while i still sit home and watch football. She still prays before every meal while i sit there in respectful silence. :-)

It may be a problem.. And it already sounds like her parents definitely wouldn't want you guys together. But if it's meant to be, it'll work out it's problems over time. Good luck!

As another hardcore atheist, I say that you shouldn't change for a relationship. She will luv you if you don't go to church, if not then she is ignorant! If I am correct the bible and the 10 rules/commandments (idk what their called) basically says that you should be kind and love to others. And if she can't do that because she doesn't like your religion. Then she isn't a very nice Christian. But it depends how religious she is too. It is true that A LOT of people become atheist after marriage to be the same as their spouse. You should try going out too, if you don't you'll never know.

If you don't believe in god why would it matter, unless she is waiting for marriage then your wasting your time. I know people who don't believe in Santa and I do, doesn't mean I shouldn't have a baby with them

If you two really have strong feelings I don't think you shouldn't see each other just because she's christian. But if it's going to be such a big issue then on one of your dates talk seriously to one another and make each other see her/your side. Maybe one of ya will consider changing.

The truth is with each of you having such diametrically opposed beliefs there is most likely going to be huge problems. Two people can certainly have some different interests but when major, hard held beliefs are a very different. To think you can have a good relationship with this is unrealistic and headed for major problems.

Try to be more open to her religion, it won't hurt you, and may help build a relationship with a very solid foundation.

From a Bible point of view- Do not be unequally yoked with a unbeliever; Unless two agree how can they walk together; what hath light with darkness.
