God is unchanging, EVER FAITHFUL ... forever!
But OUR FAITH faith has it's 'highs' and 'lows'. One moment you are on fire for God and the next, you're spent and cold - extinguished!
Marriage is a journey, there may be pitfalls along the way. If you stay the course, you will eventually get there. And the thing about any marriage is that you are two different people and there'll be times when a partner may be full of doubt when you are full of grace.
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 2 Cor. 6:14
Even if both are Christians, it is okay to feel a little unequally yoked. Even if at the onset of the relationship you both had the same 'picture' of God.
Learn to prop each other up, to give each other space, and let your faith be what it is. In the end you will realise that you don't marry faith but two imperfect beings - God's work in progress!
The best advice i can give at this moment is what got revealed to me through the Holy Spirit! Look at my video. When we marry, we are in a covenant with Jesus (represented by the triangle with Jesus on top). If husband and wife try to work it out with their own strength, they will come up against a dead wall. However, if both are only working at increasing their relationship with Jesus, the triangle leads both to a point of blessing - A point where all differences are resolved amicably and with grace! (Jesus, our graceful Lord and King is there with you always, to work things out with you)
Keep moving forward together, into the relationship that He desires to have with you and you will move into an abundant life that He is planning, has planned.
MAY YOU ALWAYS REMAIN BLEST IN CHRIST!
(NOTE: It may happen that you are currently dating someone who rejects Jesus with a vengeance (an unbeliever). Every attempt at bringing him or her to Him is not working! In such a case, it would be better to consider (and reconsider a 1000 times!) whether going ahead with such a relationship is really worth it)
