Q: I am in a haram relationship. I have commited so much of sins but now I realise my mistake and the girl is a Muslim. She loves me and decided that from now on we will not do any type of haram acta like kissing, etc. Now what do I have to do? Can I stay with her marry her in the future or do I have to leave her?
