I've been trying to find a bible verse that touches on two people being able to love each other despite their religious backgrounds. Any suggestions?

Actually, the Bible states firmly that a believer of Christ should not marry or be partners, in any way, with a non-believer:

2 Corinthians 6:14-18 (NIV)

14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? 15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial[b]? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said:

“I will live with them
and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
and they will be my people.”[c]

17 Therefore,

“Come out from them
and be separate,
says the Lord.
Touch no unclean thing,
and I will receive you.”[d]

18 And,

“I will be a Father to you,
and you will be my sons and daughters,
says the Lord Almighty.”[e]

The Bible gives this encouraging information, "A wife is bound as long as her husband is alive.  But if her husband should fall asleep I death, she is free to be married to who ever she wants, only in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 7:39

Talks about marrying a non-believer. It's okay to marry someone who is not a believer.

To the rest I say (I, not the Lord) that if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she consents to live with him, he should not divorce her. If any woman has a husband who is an unbeliever, and he consents to live with her, she should not divorce him. For the unbelieving husband is made holy because of his wife, and the unbelieving wife is made holy because of her husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy.

There is also a bible verse which I can't think of where in the bible it is, but it says that one shouldn't force a non-believer into feeling/believing something- the best way to go about it is to love the person and show them good conduct (in other words show a good example) and leave the rest to God (pray and ask God to bring them closer to Him). That is all we can do.
