There is a special case where a person marries an unbeliever while himself/herself are, likewise, an unbeliever, and only later to become a believer.
Such scenarios often occurred in the early church as unbelievers were converting in large numbers.
Usually, by the time the question is asked, the relationship has gone far enough that a negative answer is going to be difficult to accept, even if it is the right answer.
The short answer is "no." However, it is good to examine the scripture behind the answer to understand it more completely, including why such a marriage is a bad idea.
