Question

Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatu. I have a Christian boyfriend that I've known for 3 years. He's been studying about Islam and has finally decided that this is the religion for him and so we have decided to get married in the near future giving him time to strengthen his imaan and really submit to Islam. What I want to know is that is it OK for me to marry him? Or do we need to break up first before we marry?
