Eugene and Samantha had an instant connection and believe that the stars were aligned when they met and fell in love. When Eugene proposed to Samantha, they had been together just over a year. The couple is of different faiths – Samantha was raised Christian and Eugene was raised Jewish. Unlike Samantha, Eugene always felt a strong connection to his religion however; they have decided to raise their three month old son, Nathan in a multi-faith household with an emphasis on Judaism. Eugene’s mother and brother are very upset that Eugene does not plan on marrying a girl of Jewish faith and are strongly opposed to their relationship.
