On this week’s Up Close, a look at interfaith marriage in America.
First, in addition to being of different religious backgrounds, Lucinda Franks and Robert Morgenthau are decades apart in age, but that didn’t stop them from falling in love. The youngest woman to ever win the Pulitzer Prize, journalist Lucinda Franks talks about how she met and married famed Jewish NY District Attorney Bob Morgenthau, and the reaction to their unlikely union, in her book, Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me.
Then, taking a broader view of the interfaith marriage phenomenon and its effect on American society is Naomi Schaefer Riley. She discusses the results of national surveys and in-depth interviews she conducted for her book, ‘Til Faith Do Us Part: How Interfaith Marriage is Transforming America.
