Should I marry this non-practising Shia girl?

The girl is not very highly practicing one in either Shite or Sunni faith though she says it does not matter as she is “just Muslim” and wants to marry someone who is also “just Muslim”. My understanding is that a Sunni boy may marry with a Shite girl as long as the girl agrees to allow the offspring to be raised as Sunni and not Shite.
