Updated On 29 Dec, 2016 Published On

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump is a name everyone knows especially because of their fathers. But both Jared and Ivanka have been successful as individuals and managed to earn a name for them. Let’s take a peek at their relationship.

How did Jared and Ivanka meet?

Well, this two love birds meet in 2007 through a mutual friend. Actually, their friends set them up for a date and they just had an instant connection. Their friends thought business was the only common thing between them but surprisingly the two were similar in many ways.

In an interview with New York Magazine she said about meeting her husband, “We met through mutual friends and started dating pretty quickly after we met. It felt like a slow process – a courtship if you will.”

Like every relationship, this couple also suffered a brief setback in 2008 and they broke up due to differences in their religion. Though they were very much in love, Jared’s family wanted him to marry a Jewish woman which resulted in their separation.

However, the split didn’t last long as and they were back to being a couple. Ivanka converted to Judaism after studying under Rabbi Lookstein at K.J on the Upper East State. Jared is definitely one lucky guy to have found a woman like Ivanka who would change her religion to be with him we think he realized the fact and on July 2009 he popped the question to Ivanka.

Before their engagement, the daughter of the new President of USA, Ivanka gushed about her soon to be fiancé at that time to New York magazine saying, “Jared is my best friend for many reasons, largely because I’ve allowed him to see who I truly am and he still love me.” She also added, “He’s a bit of a hero of mine. Sometimes I catch myself looking at him and being thankful that I have grown to a level of personal maturity that I would value so much the qualities he has.” Isn’t that sweet?
