Can I marry someone who doesn’t have a love of learning?

In my family, education is a way of life. Both my parents are teachers, and while I think I’m going to pursue a different career at least at first, I think I may eventually want to teach later on in life. Needless to say, my parents always told me that an education was the most important thing that they could give me, and I’ve always been dedicated to learning throughout life.

Well, they say opposites attract, but I never expected this: the guy I’m dating here at school can’t wait to get out of here and start his “real life,” and he doesn’t think he ever learned much in grade school (he admits he’s learning something here, at least). It’s upsetting me, because I’m worried that if we end up together he won’t help any children we might have cultivate a love of learning. How can I change his mind?
