I've met a couple where the boyfriend is a christian and the girlfriend is an atheist. They have been dating for two years. Do you believe that their relationship will last?

That depends on how indoctrinated the christian is. If he has been brainwashed to believe that it's hell and damnation because he is dating someone outside the church and buys into that, it won't work. If one feels they will "convert" the other - it won't work.
If they can love each other despite their differences, there just may be a chance.
Before I post this - I see some very good answers, above and beyond what I can say.
I hope your friends can read these messages and add them to their own thoughts.
An aside: my wife and I have slightly different beliefs. I am a "small a" agnostic, in that I don't proclaim that I "know" that the existence of deity is impossible to know. (a "large A" Agnostic) only that I don't know and realize that I don't pretend to know more than anybody else.
My wife is into some sort of low key new age spirituality which I remain highly skeptical of but I feel that hey, IF it works for her for any reason, all the power to her. Luckily neither of us are held down by dogma. But for us it generally works.
