He later proceeded to have a spell-binding career as a pro wrestler, notching the WCW, WWF/WWE world championships. Kurt Angle has four brothers, one of whom is Dave Angle.

Erin Angle and Jon Bernthal Began Dating in 2000 and Wed in 2010
Erin Angle and Jon Bernthal first met each other at a bar in Washington D.C. in 2000. Bernthal was immediately mesmerized by Angle’s beauty and made his move. Luckily for him, she was receptive to his overtures and they agreed to go on a date later. They thereafter started a romantic relationship. As at the time that the couple started their romance, Erin Angle was already starting her career as a nurse while Bernthal was still taking acting classes.
He later completed his studies and kick-started his career with a string of guest roles. As you can guess, it wasn’t easy for the couple by any means but they stuck together through thick and thin and their love blossomed for the next few years. It wasn’t all seamless though. At some point in the mid-2000s, Bernthal did a bunch of “dumb stuff” and Angle broke up with him. She relocated to another town but he refused to give up on their love. He continued begging her with an assortment of flowers and poems and she finally agreed to go to a concert with him.
The concert was given by legendary country singer, Willie Nelson, and Bernthal was able to get backstage and convince Nelson to play a track for him and Angle. She was of course impressed with this and they got back together. They were able to weather other storms that came their way. They later tied the knot on the 25th of September 2010. The ceremony took place at the Potomac and was conducted by Bernthal’s acting teacher – Alma Becker.

The entire family makes their home in Ojai, California, and tries to stay away from the spotlight in order to have a normal life. Erin Angle only accompanies her husband to the red carpet on rare occasions and hardly grants interviews. She is also not active on social media, at least not under her known monikers. This makes it a bit difficult to gain a view into their family dynamic but her husband has been more forthcoming.
He has revealed that he is gutted to be away from the family for work. He however tries to make it up to them by being 100% focused and present when he is at home. The actor has also praised Angle for the smooth running of their home and has revealed that he wants to teach his children to be kind.
