Someone told me i sinned to not agree to marry a drunk. As someone now happily married, I am grateful i turned down this drunk, who was also an atheist. The person who told me to marry the drunk said it was 'God's answer to prayer' and 'how do you know God didn't want you to save him?'

Any thoughts? i didn't even LIKE the guy who asked me, not even a tiny bit, so my thoughts are why enter into something where i would have not only been lying to him 24/7 but also where i could have gotten killed? Anyone with half a brain and common sense knows alcoholism and domestic violence are often linked.

This person was my parent's housekeeper; and they fired her for her advice. She also told my parents they sinned to fire her. My two aunts, both of whom have been involved with druggies or drunks bothsaid 'Good for them for firing her! They were looking out for you."

what are your thoughts?

Are you human?: Yes!
I know this is kinda an old post, but the Bible forbids marriage between believers and non-believers:

2 Corinthians 6:14: "Do not be unequally yoked [often read as referring to marrying] together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?” (NKJV)"

1 Corinthians 7 mentions that if you are already in a relationship with a nonbeliever not to divorce them, but that's a different matter.
