Marry Girlfriend Maybe Christian
I'm Christian and my gf said many times she doesn't know what she believes yet but has recently been willing to believe in God and slowly gain faith. My question is it okay for me (a christian man) to marry her (a woman who doesn't know what she wants but is willing to start to believe).

Do not be unequally yoked with an unbeliever.
Also, just believing "in God" doesn't make someone a Christian. Buddhists, Muslims, and Hindus also believe in a god. You need to make sure she genuinely repents and loves Jesus. You also should check the condition of your heart, as I find it hard to imagine that a devoted, sold-out-for-Christ believer would even consider marrying or being in any kind of romantic relationship with someone who isn't.

Congratulations to you Jerry as well. I hope you are saving your money for your 50th Anniversary gift to your wife.
As you can see I am only concerned about your wives' gifts. :D
I agree: a GOOD FOUNDATION of Jesus before marriage is the key to a long marriage.

Nathan: I agree with the Mod. As my mother used to say, "If it's love, it will wait."
I have been married to my wife for 48 years. The secret is Jesus! If both parties love Him, then they will love each other.
Study the Bible with your gf, and then find a church that teaches the truth you find in the Bible.

We gave each other a nice getaway on the Central California Coast. It was quite wonderful.
There is no secret to having a long marriage. All you have to do is stay together and live long enough.

Now WHAT did you get your wife for your 50th Anniversary?
You both need to give marriage classes in your local area. (actually premarital classes.)
Today if a couple makes it to 20 years it is a miracle.

My wife and I have been married for 51 years. I think it was a good choice.

This will bother you through marriage. Multiply what bothers you now. The little quirks and the little flaws become more pronounced in marriage. You don't know a person til you marry them. More becomes known in marriage. To me, the greatest matter is one's position on children and what one says before marriage is not the same as one experiences in marriage. So you have no say when a wife decides to abort and you have no say when your wife decides not to sleep with you and what can you do when your wife separates the family, takes away the children, and places no contact orders against you because she is not on the same page? What can you do? Better not to marry.

If you are both committed to stay together in sickness and health, good and bad, until death, and are both absolutely sure of that commitment, then you have a good chance of making your marriage work, whatever the other circumstances may be.
