A Jewish US congressman married a woman he met through the online dating service JDate. Rep. Steven Rothman (D-NJ) and Jennifer Anne Beckstein were married August 18 by a rabbi in New York. Each has been married previously, and their five teenage children were in attendance. Rothman made headlines two years ago when it was revealed that he was Steve3366, a government employee with a six-figure salary looking for Jewish love online. Rothman said at the time that he chose to search online because of severe limitations on his time as a lawmaker.
