Can a Christian marry a Muslim?

We are older friends and already have children from different spouses. We desire to get married, but without having kids anymore. We have different beliefs/ religions. 

2 Corinthians 6:1 - 18

NKJV - 1 We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain. 2 For He says: "In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you." Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

2 Cor. 6:14 "Do not allow yourselves to be harnessed together with unbelievers, for what do righteousness and lawlessness have in common? What partnership can there be between light and darkness?" 
1 Cor. 7:39 "...she is free to marry whoever she wants— but he must be a believer."

Scripture is clear that we must only marry Christians. The Apostle Paul teaches that if one spouse becomes saved after marriage, they should stay together if possible, but we should not choose to marry an unbeliever.
