How important is marriage to win the presidency?
We have yet to have a president that was not married.
Where is marriage on your voting list?
For me it's not important.
However I suspect there would be many people out there who would be upset or unhappy watching a president out on the town with different women or men and having them spend the night in the white house. They don't want to see the president out on the prowl. LOL!
Having said that James Buchanan, the nation's 15th president and Grover Cleveland, the nation's 22nd were elected while being single.
Three things that will keep a person from getting elected today as president of the U.S.; are being an known atheist, being single, or practicing the Muslim faith.
Although none of those would be considered unconstitutional people still want to believe their president believes in God, is dedicated spouse and parent, and practices a religion which is in line with the majority.
Concerns were raised over JFK being Catholic back in the 60s.
There are "unwritten rules" people have for voting for a president.
Got me on the single, I should have said since TV.
Do you think that today a president that got divorced during their 1st term could get reelected?
It would probably depend on how well the economy is doing and the perception of who is at fault for the failed marriage. Obviously if the president was cheated on there would be sympathy from the public but if it's the other way around not so.
James Buchanan, 15th President of the United States, never married.
Grover Cleveland, 22nd and 24th President, was elected twice while not married, although he did marry during his second term.

Could Grover Cleveland win today's Republican 2012 Presidential Nomination?I will ask this question with a past famous President or personage. I thought it might be interesting to see who knows their history or just their myth.
