So many persons who are raised as a JW, do not consider themselves JW's (although the outside world might perceive them this way) and they live with partners whom they choose 'freely' (of course one has to take into account some pressure from family, peer pressure and pressure from society in general, which limits the free choice of most persons).1) Since many JW's are married and belong to a different religion before they get baptized as a Jehovah's Witness, interfaith marriages are not so rare among JW's (typically only the wife converts to JW's).WITNESSES WHO ARE KINGDOM HALL MEMBERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD ARE HERE REPRESENTING VARIOUS CONGREGATIONS. The Bible & Tract Society of the Jehovah's Witness Information Organization also encourages converts and supports new members. No - we're an independent community site offering support for both current and former Jehovah's Witnesses and anyone else who has been affected by the beliefs, doctrines and practices of the Jehovah's Witness religion as governed by the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society (WTB&TS).
I want to know if we can still date if I become a Jehovah’s Witness with the purpose of continuing our dating relationship or will that pose a problem?
If it is discouraged, is it for social reasons (interfaith marriage is hard) or doctrinal reasons (the Bible says...)? I feel that the previous answer might be a bit one sided.
I can answer this off the top of my head, but I have no time to look for sources right now, so I'll put it in a comment. 0) First of all, persons who are not baptised as a JW, but only raised as a JW, are free to live their lives as they see fit (there is no infant baptism among JW's).

Some Christian denominations allow their members to marry whomever they please, others discourage it, and others just don't allow it (you are either disfellowshipped or the church refuses to perform the marriage).
