According to sources, the wedding was a mixed one that welded two different faiths. This means it was Catholic-Jewish because Mauer is from a Jewish background while her husband is Catholic. 

In 2008, Leguizamo portrayed Mauricio, a Puerto Rican man with a Jewish wife, in the drama, “Nothing Like The Holidays.” It was not lost on many that Mauricio and Leguizamo shared similarities regarding their marriage. 

When asked about the role’s parallels with his real life, Leguizamo said: “They never said it was written for me. No one’s told me the truth. It’s too weird a coincidence. It made it great, too, because that’s my life — I had lots to draw from.” 

Justine Maurer’s Net Worth

Maurer is less focused on her career these days and is more particular about managing her family. As such, it isn’t easy to put a tag on how much she earns from her work. 

However, sources claim that her net worth is bound to be considerable, seeing as her late father left her a huge chunk of his wealth. On the other hand, her husband’s net worth is well known. 

The famous actor is reportedly worth about $25 million, more than enough to support Maurer and their family. Leguizamo made the majority of his wealth from his acting career, and he spent most of it on his family. 

They enjoy the best life offers but have stayed grounded through it all. Other famous couples like them with long years of marriage behind them include Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, David and Victoria Beckham, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Brad Hal.
