I've been talking to this guy for 8 months now and there hasn't been a day where we haven't spoken, even if it was one of us leaving the other a message, except for when he was abroad for a week. We're currently long distance and where there is no set date for when we can actually be together there are plans in the work and it shouldn't be incredibly too far into the future. We get along incredibly well and understand and know each other more and better than I ever thought was possible. While the long distance is incredibly hard we both know that we can get past that but there is a much more negative cloud above our heads. I am a full born again, Bible believing christian and he is staunch atheist. I believe in heaven and hell, no premarital sex and everything that comes with full Christianity. He has had very negative experiences with religion in the past and before meeting me had a very negative view of christians in general. We're finding this the hardest part about deciding if we should date or not. While we are somewhat young we are both very serious and don't see a point in just dating for the fun of it. If won't be something casual and hopefully marriage will be involved eventually. What he struggles with is the no sex before marriage, while both of us are virgins he can't see himself waiting for us to get married as he would prefer us to have a long term relationship and eventually get married when we are ready for kids. I worry about if we were to have children, while i know that you can't force a child, or anyone, into believing what you do the thought of not reading my children bible stories or bringing them to church deeply saddens me. We both know that what we are doing is and will continue to be incredibly difficult but we both seem to not be able to let the other go. I am also very tolerant of him not being religious and all that comes with it, getting drunk etc., and he knows what i believe and doesn't consider me dumb for believing what i do and completely respects what i believe as well.
Maybe I'm writing this to just get it off my chest but i would definitely love some feedback as well from those in similar situations. Thanks so much.
