I have a boyfriend we are okay and happy to each other until one day he asked my religion. I said I'm a Christian and he said to me that we can't be together because he's a member of JW and I'm not from his church. I said we can find a way and he trust what I said.

My question is can a Christian and unbaptized Jehovah Witness can be marriage? If not can be one of us change religion?

In case someone say that I'm crazy because I'm willing to change a religion just for someone. I just believe that it is not in religion when it comes on God it is about your faith and trust in him.

    The other question gives you the answer about marriage. Obviously either of you can change your religion if you wish and value your significant other above your beliefs, though possibly not without consequences from your families or communities. Feb 10 '21 at 2:03
  • Did you know that Jehovahs witnesses are Christians? I don’t think your boyfriend takes his affiliation with Jehovah’s Witnesses very seriously.

    It doesn't appear we have a question about it, but all Protestants and Catholics would strongly caution their adherents not to marry non-Trinitarians (including Jehovah's Witnesses). Both sides think it is extremely unwise, as they do not consider the other side to worship the same God! As you say, it's all about trusting God, which means that truly knowing him, knowing the right identity for God, is essential. If you can come to the same place theologically, then marriage is a wiser option.

    @Kris Jehovah's Witneses consider themselves Christians but they don't consider other Christians to really be Christians. Feb 11 '21 at 1:56

    By far the most important consideration is the community in which you and your husband plan to raise your children. You will find that deciding what kind of religious upbringing you give your children will trump everything else, since it will be embodied in the kind of Christians you will associate & spend a lot of time with: their worldview, their ethical values, their doctrines, etc. which their Sunday school teachers will indoctrinate them. "Indoctrinate" sounds negative, but that's exactly what will happen, until they become adult and can decide for themselves. That's your legacy. Feb 11 '21 at 3:16
