Dating a Sikh who might not take amrit

I am a 21 year old, and I recently got into Sikhi. Two years ago I did not care much about it and at one point I was ready to give it up. However, now I want to keep learning and eventually want to take amirt sometime between 2-5 years from now.

Recently I met someone I really like, and she's amazing. Her personality is great, and I have not gotten along with any girl better than with her. I don't know if she feels the same way, but I really enjoy her presence. She is Sikh, but she does not keep her Kesh and do not know if she has any plans to take amrit. We only went on one date thus far. No one in her family keeps their kesh.

These are where my concerns come in. If it does work out, would it be hard for the kids? What if she agrees the kids should keep their Kesh and eventually take Amrit? Should I only look for someone who will take Amrit for marriage? Is there anyway that it could work between us? Should I not go on more dates with her?
