Hello! I've not posted before, but would greatly appreciate some feeback on a relationship issue that has become pressing. I'm 31 and Christian. I'm dating a 23 year old girl who used to be Christian, but is now agnostic due to some past experiences. We've been dating about 5 months now and she recently pressed me for a commitment (not marriage, just an exclusive relationship). We're interested in dating one another long term and neither of us has an interest in anyone else.
I would love to make a commitment to her, but I'm seriously concerned about our religious differences. I want to marry a Christian woman who not only will go to church with me, but wants to go because of her own genuine, personal religous convictions; I want my children to be raised to be Christian. If I married an agnostic, she may stay agnostic and never convert. She may go to church with me or she may not (she says she would). And lastly, she may disagree with me in terms of how to raise our children, which invites big problems in my opinion. She and I are far from marriage at this point, but I am trying to think long term.
What are your throughts on dating someone who doesn't share your religious views? I would greatly appreciate your input.
