Before knowing Joe Biden, Jill, his wife, had another life. If she met the current president of the United States, the First Lady was married for the first time with Bill Stevenson. In an interview with the media Harper’s Bazaar, she returned to this union. And the least we can do is that she keeps a bitter memory of it: “I believed so much in the institution of marriage. When my marriage collapsed, I really fell from above. And then when I saw his true face …”, thus revealed Jill Biden who will divorce in 1975 after many legal problems. After her separation, her life was turned upside down.
Indeed, Joe Biden’s wife found herself in a complicated financial situation. “I knew that I would never go back to this situation again. Realizing that I didn’t have enough money to support myself, and that I had to rely on the money of my divorce to get out of it. I just told my daughter, Ashley, ‘Be independent, be independent.’ Fortunately, she will meet Joe Biden who will soon charm her after her separation.

Indeed, the First Lady immediately fell under the charm and above all the politeness of the current President of the United States: “I was really charmed. Arrived at the door, men usually try something but not him. He shook my hand. I went upstairs, called my mom and said, ‘Mom, I finally met a gentleman,'” she recalled in a 2012 interview. From this magnificent love story, Ashley will be born.
