After being linked romantically to rappers like Common and Drake, Serena Williams is still on the hunt for her Mr. Right. In a recent interview, the tennis champ explained that one of her requirements for her future husband is that he has the same religious faith as her. Williams is a Jehovah’s Witness.

“I think it’s important when you marry to be evenly yoked,” said Williams in an interview with S2S.

Williams and her sister, Venus, grew up in the religion, but Williams says that she’s just now getting back to her faith.

“I’ve been studying to be a Jehovah’s Witness, so I go to Kingdom Hall. I grew up a Witness and it’s what I know and we teach things that come from the Bible,” said Williams.

Well, based on a simple search, it may be a little difficult for Williams to find her Mr. Right in Hollywood, but she’s surely not the only famous Jehovah’s Witness. Check out others who are or were part of the religion. –nicholas robinson

    She sure doesn’t act like someone of a sincere, religious persuasion.

    Well every great person has some weakness. Wasn’t the Jacksons Jehovah Witness too. I want a black woman who knows her black African History or is at less willing to learn. One that realize that men created gods even the ones we have today. I want a woman who is knowing of the Shetaut Neter which is the basis of all religions. Having said all that, I guess I want be marrying Serena.

    If Serena wants to find a man who shares her faith she needs to be active in her faith or no faithful brother would be interested in marrying her. Jehovah God doesn’t care about tennis – he cares about his name people sharing Bible truth with others. All witnesses should be “seeking FIRST the Kingdom and his righteousness” and if she chooses to do this she will be more likely to find a faithful Christian brother who would be willing to marry her.
