Should I marry a Protestant?

I am currently dating an unchurched protestant (perhaps more accurately defined as a deist). She knows that I am a devout Catholic and will raise my children accordingly. She comes from a protestant family that is not very open to Catholicism ( particularly her grandparents that she is close to). She is not very knowledgeable of theology in general and says that she would marry me regardless of these facts. I want to marry in the Church and I am concerned about potential future problems that may arise. I share the faith with her but she is so far uncommitted one way or the other and I do not want her to convert if she is not truly in full communion with the Church. What is the best course of action to take?
