in response to reader comment: Can anyone answer my question

From a Messianic Christian perpsective (and watching your journey with reserved apprehension since nothing mentioned cannot be guaranteed), saying the two phrases sounds as though your allegiances are called to question. Though to some Muslims, the veracity of becoming a full Islamic adherent may not be achieved, but your loyalty to the marriage will be viewed from a Muslim perspective thereafter. It would be inescapable.
That having been said, your journey is one that has had Islamic influences written in assumed prospects of how your life will be forever changed and the former influences of your past life will be remembered either poorly, if even remembered at all. Recall; marriage is about sacrifice, either willingly or under duress.
You must determine that; for the rest of your life whether, that which you will leave behind is worth what is anticipated or if not, what are you willing to surrender in order to obtain any reward (self respect) for exchanging what you used to know for what you will be facing for the rest of your life.
Ultimately, if you follow through, which will your regret more; since it is apparent you are looking for change to make sense of life and what you are unsure of are whether the results will be worth it.
From this perspective (Messianic Christian), confirming the Christian belief has a better chance of bringing peace of mind than any other.
