Why would you want to be with someone you want to change?

My niece recently got engaged. They met over 2 years ago, had a long distance thing, then she moved to be close to him and they got more and more serious. Then they moved out of the state they were in and eventually got engaged. We all loved him, he's really a nice guy, seemed fun and all that.
Then he starts with all the jesus stuff. He doesn't feel right about them having sex when their not married, he starts going to church, which whatever. If that's your thing then that's your thing but then he starts pretty much harassing her, trying to pressure her to change, to accept jesus and go to church and the whole thing.
She's not having it and now they are breaking up. I don't understand him, he knew exactly how she was when they met. Why now? Why try and change someone after all this time? He wants to work it out but how the heck would that happen? Why would you want to be with someone you want to change? I just don't get some people

Glad she is walking away before getting married.

In my 20s, I totally believed anyone can change / be changed. 

Reality has showed me otherwise.

Me too.
She's young, 23. It's a good time now to get out
