Would You Convert for Queen Amidala? [POLL]

Natalie Portman’s husband, Benjamin Millepied, has reportedly decided to convert to Judaism.

Portman herself is Jewish and is a native of Israel. She has expressed a desire to raise her children (with Millepied) Jewish, so I assume he didn’t want to be the only one in the house who wasn’t Jewish. What I wonder, though, is if you convert to your spouse’s religion out of love, what happens if you fall out of love? Is you membership in the religion contingent on the marriage staying together? The ABC article actually mentions a case in which the marriage broke up, but the religion held: Marilyn Monroe converted to Judaism to wed Arthur Miller and remained Jewish (albeit for only a year) until her death in 1962. It seems to me that your religious beliefs (or lack thereof) are central to most people’s identity and you’d have to really believe the tenets of the new faith before making the leap. Then again, maybe people just do it so their kid can get into a certain school.
