American President's And Their Epic Love Stories #HLVFavorites
Updated: Jan 7, 2021
After this past week of political drama, like many of you, at Happy Little Vows we have felt drained. We wanted to take the time to find a rainbow in the mess of all the screaming and shouting. And we realized there were some bright sparks that needed to celebrated, especially since it's what we do best at HLV, and that is Love. Over this past month we fell in love with Kamala Harris and Doug Emhoff, with their fun and supportive relationship where they actively choose to lift one another up and cheer each other on. Their love has filled us with a fresh sense of joy we didn't even know we needed. And they're not alone. Over the past many years there have been many wonderful love stories that have entered the White House as Presidents and VPs.
Some may question our addition of love stories that have led to affairs, however all involved have held on stead-fast in their love and their beautiful stories of chance meetings should be told and championed like-wise. While we do not condone adultery, it would be wise to note that 16 American Presidents have been involved in affairs, many persevering to continue the epic love story they started. Controversial as it may seem, Happy Little Vows is, after all, about Love.
Below, we showcase our top 9 favorite American Presidential Love Stories including our newest VP-elect - in their own words. Enjoy!
