Meet The Only President Who Refused To Marry, He Used His Niece As First Lady.

Hard to believe in a country without a first lady. Politicians must present themselves as respected family men to win the people's trust.


However, one man surpassed all expectations and became the first US president to rule without a woman. He is the 15th President of America and his name is James Buchanan.


Buchanan is still the only president who never wanted to get married. At the age of 28, he was engaged to Anna K. Coleman, a child of a wealthy Pennsylvania dynasty. He ended the relationship for unknown reasons, and Coleman sadly died afterwards, possibly by suicide.


Why he never married:


President James Buchanan is reportedly bisexual, which explains why he never married. Shortly before his presidency, Buchanan lived with Alabama Senator William Rufus King for 15 years.
