While DC and Marvel made efforts at portraying racial diversity in the '70s, Charlton went a different route -- religious diversity. For nine issues of Just Married, readers were treated to the trials and tribulations of David and Eileen -- interfaith newlyweds. As far as I know, the series contains the only references to Judaism in romance comics, and one of the only two instances of recurring characters in the Charlton romances -- the other, Jonnie Love of course! Happy Hanukkah my friends!
