Which Bachelor Alum Is Converting to a Different Religion For Her Fiance?
You know you’re serious about someone when you’re willing to convert to their faith. So we’re not worried about Jackie Gordon getting cold feet before her wedding day — which is probably coming very soon since she just applied for her marriage license.
Jackie — seen on Brad Womack’s The Bachelor Season 15 and Bachelor Pad Season 2 — is engaged to financial advisor Marcus Kline, and when not tweeting about her wedding bands and wedding dress fittings, she’s probably studying up on her new faith.
“L'Shana Tova to all those celebrating! Happy 5774!” she tweeted on September 4 in honor of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. A fan asked if it was true that she was marrying into the "Tribe." Jackie replied, "yes and converting!" She's like Charlotte in Sex and the City! The same fan wrote back, “So proud. We will be adding a beautiful, artistic soul to our ‘tribe.’ Wish you and @MarcusKline every happiness.”
Interestingly enough, new Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis recently revealed that he was Jewish “once for a BIT,” whatever that means. And Season 7 Bachelorette Ashley Hebert was raised Catholic but her televised wedding with J.P. Rosenbaum mixed their religious traditions, and now they celebrate both Catholic and Jewish holidays.
Good luck to Jackie in her marriage and her conversion. Mazel tov!
