I am hoping this will post in the Christian Board, because I could really use some advise from my fellow Christian ladies. I met my FI and fell head over heels in love with him. Everyone loves him as much as I do, and many of my single friends will even call him to help them with traditional "guy" chores. He makes me so happy and surpasses my dreams…He’s better than I could have ever imagined a man to be and feels like a perfect fit for me.
Problem? He’s not a Christian. He was raised in the church and fell away from it in his teenaged years when he was forced into completing his confirmation when he was not ready. Two years ago when we got serious he agreed to be open to Christianity and to attend chruch regularly, which he has. He’s reading a book (The Case for Christ) and meeting with our pastor about once a month. but he has yet to make any decisions about his faith (though he did say that he is more open that he was when he started his journey, and that he can see why people believe Christianity now, whereas he did not before). He’s agreed to raise our children in the church, should we have them, and to attend regularly with us, but I am not sure…many have told me that we are "uneqally yolked" and that this is a bad idea. My gut says that it can work, but I feel stuck.
Any words of wisdom? I’m really torn up over this and would appreciate any advice you could provide.Thanks in advance!
