6 More Interfaith Couples We Love


Different religions aren't a problem for these celebrity couples.

The chocolate bunnies and gefilte fish are on the shelves, the pastel colors are suddenly everywhere, and the daylight is expanding—the spring holidays are here.

For many, the holidays (during any season) come with a heaping side dish of pressure and an extra helping of stress. If it's not worry over seeing the family, then maybe it's nerves over introducing your significant other or meeting their loved ones. One thing to never sweat over is if you and your sweetheart don't participate in the same celebrations, be it in the spring, summer, fall, or winter. Jewish Girl Seeks "Goyfriend" for Christmas

There is no shortage of celebs that have made an interfaith union work, so we did a little digging. We found some unexpected examples on BeliefNet.com to add to some dual-religion couples we've already reported on.  5 Famous Interfaith Couples

1) Invanka Trump and Jared Kushner

2) Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
Brad Pitt was raised as Southern Baptist, but his ladyfriend Angelina Jolie doesn't subscribe to that belief. She's been quoted as saying, "There doesn't need to be a God for me. There's something in people that's spiritual." Even if the two don't share specific customs, they're each willing to accept the other's ideas about spirituality.

3) Shawn King and Larry King
She may have many names—Wikipedia says she was born Shawn Engemann and used the moniker Shawn Southwick professionally before changing to Shawn King after marrying Larry—but her faith has remained constant. Shawn is a Mormon. She fills all of the stereotypical prerequisites, like attending Brigham Young University and being friends with the Osmonds. Larry, however, describes himself as "an agnostic Jew." Yet, the two have been married for 13 years, longer than any of his other six marriages. Call it a miracle.
