Do not be unequally yoked comes to mind…etc…etc…you know the arguments for and against…pros and cons…
I think a lot of people marry outside of their religion, but do so out of ignorance at a young age. When I first married in my 20s I considered myself a Christian yet had no clue what it meant to be one. Had I married a woman outside of my religion with firm beliefs in her religion it is likely that she would have swayed me into her religion. In any case if an individual that "knows better" chooses to do it anyway they had better be prepared for issues that they otherwise wouldn’t have to deal with. I would recommend that if an individual wanted to marry someone that didn’t have the same or very similar religious beliefs that it should be discussed considerably before making any permanent plans.
1 Corinthians 6:12 "All things are lawful for me," but not all things are helpful. "All things are lawful for me," but I will not be enslaved by anything.
