Nehemiah 13:27 Shall we then hearken unto you to do all this great evil, to transgress against our God in marrying strange wives?
There is a lot of Bible about who you should marry. God’s people are not to marry those that do not love Him. There can be differences in many areas of your life but not in the area of worship. God’s people are to marry people that want to worship God.
The person that will have the most significant influence in your life is your spouse. You will no longer be allowed to make unilateral decisions. At least you should never again make a decision that doesn’t take into account how it affects your spouse. What pleases one should at least not offend the other.
The two of you become one flesh. You are no longer two but one. What does that mean? It is that you never live like a single again.
So how can each of you worship a different God? If one chooses to honor God in all decisions and the other chooses not to honor God, there will be great conflict. Eventually, you will decide to stay married or worship God. If not you will have a marriage that you endure.
Marry someone that loves God. Do not dishonor God by marrying someone who does not honor God.
