I was in a similar situation with my gf a while ago. When we just started dating and were still trying to figure out how to deal with our differences. Initially, It was frustrating to not be to align with my partner on such an important subject, and back then we were too young to handle such touchy topic with the much-needed sensitivity and patience. So, we had arguments about it, heated conversations about how we will raise our future kids differently. But we knew that we love each other enough to reach a compromise on everything, including the subject of faith. Fortunately, we were able to reach a middle ground between agnostic and religious, that is we accept that there are some truths in religion. I don't think there is an easy answer for your question, and it took us many many lengthy talks to properly get over the topic. And I think ultimately, it's down to how much we are willing to accept for our love.
