The Bible tells us that, as Christians, we should not marry an unbeliever (2 Corinthians -15) because this would weaken our relationship with Christ and compromise our morals and standards.
It is one of the most important decisions we will ever make, because when two people marry, they cleave to one another and become one flesh in a relationship which God intended to be permanent and unbreakable (Genesis ; Matthew 19:5).God issued the Ten Commandments and the laws in Leviticus to be obeyed by the Hebrews.If they complied, he pledged prosperity and protection in the Promised Land.Sexual immorality is a sin not only against God but against our own bodies (1 Corinthians ).It is important to love and honor others as we love ourselves (Romans 12:9-10), and this is certainly true for a courtship or dating relationship.
