Waalykum salam

Thank you for your Question.

According to Islamic laws a Muslim man cannot marry a non Muslim woman. Unless, she is ahle Kitab (like jew, Christian… )then you can only perform a temporary marriage and not a permanent One.

However, if this lady reverts and becomes a Muslim then you can certainly marry her InshaAllah.

Kind regards.
