Portman, Jacob She quickly befriends him while flirting with him, but as the story progresses, she begins to warm up to him and falls in love with Jacob. However, since he is married to an actress (whose career he is not willing to put on hold), he never acts on his feelings for her.
She also loves his son William who lives with them. In the end, they both realize that what they feel for each other is not right and so they part ways peacefully after deciding not to ruin their lives because of their feelings.
However, later on, when Portman starts dating a woman named Eva (who is also married) things take a twist when Emma realizes that Eva is actually Jacob's wife! This makes her fall out of love with Jacob instantly even though they still remain good friends.
In the end, Eva ends up leaving Jacob for another man which causes him to drink himself into a drunken stupor one night where he crashes his car into a tree. But thanks to Emma who saves him by pulling him out of the car before it explodes, he survives this accident intact and remains alive even after Eva leaves him for another man.
Jacob remained with Rachel's family for a month and became passionately in love with her throughout that time. Rachel and Jacob fell in love, so Jacob contacted Laban and asked for his permission to marry her. A marriage included monetary considerations. Since Jacob was working for Laban, he could afford a bride price. This was similar to today's practice of paying a dowry. The marriage contract was signed, "Jacob married Rachel."
After the marriage, they returned home to give notice of their marriage and to allow time for Jacob to prepare an inheritance for his new wife. When they arrived at the place where Laban's flocks were grazing, Jacob saw a pile of stones beside the road and thought it was a grave so he stopped there to weep. Later he found out that the pile of rocks was actually a sign that someone had recently been buried there. He wept bitterly because he had been forced to marry someone he didn't love.
In time, Laban gave Jacob his daughter Rachel as a wife. But unlike his first marriage, which was based on financial arrangements, this one was based on love. It is said that Jacob loved Rachel more than anything else in the world. They had ten children, including four sets of twins. After Laban died, Jacob took advantage of a religious custom by marrying another woman after Leah and Rachel had borne him two sons.
Despite the inequity of the circumstance, Jacob accepted Laban's offer because he loved Rachel. At the conclusion of the week, Jacob married Rachel and began working for Laban for another seven years to finish the contract. Jacob adored Rachel even more than he adored Leah (Genesis 29:30). He gave her free rein in all things, which shows that even though she was younger, Jacob saw her as an equal partner with whom he shared responsibilities.
In marriage, as in life, there are advantages to being young and attractive. But there are also disadvantages - especially when you're not willing to compromise. In this case, Jacob had better things to do with his time than marry more wives. However, God used Rachel's beauty to bring about a great blessing to both Israel and Jacob. As you can see, age is just a number. What matters most is how you use your time on Earth.
