Marrying a non-Christian means a lifetime of split loyalties, and a severe endangerment of your relationship with God.

It's not an "agree to disagree" kind of difference - like whether Manchester United or Liverpool is better (is there really an argument anyway?

), its played out in how you spend your time, money, what you teach your future children, how you deal with hardship... Some of these you may or may not have to deal with before marriage, but they will certainly apply after.

Perfect in the sense that he was almost exactly like me, we liked the same things, had the same tastes, he knew what kind of stuff I would like, we even supported the same football team… All except for the fact that he wasn't a Christian.

It didn't matter to me at first, but I think all along at the back of my mind, I knew it would be an issue someday.

Even a Christian relationship can become an idol if it takes precedence over God.

So, even if not explicitly stated as a sin, the fact that we are willing to endanger our faith to cling on to this other person shows our heart's true desires.

"Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her...

so that he might present the church to himself in splendor... In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies.

I should also clarify at this point that by "dating", I do not mean a casual, just-for-fun romance with no likely future - I mean a relationship entered into with the intention to find out if you are suitable for marriage. Casual dating is usually self-centered and self-serving: it's fun, it makes me happy, who cares what happens in the future?

If we know for sure we will never marry said person, then being in a relationship with them is unfair to them as well.

It's taking God's wisdom and stretching it so we find a loophole.
