Jill Biden Husband/ Jill And Joe Biden

Biden is married to Joe Biden, who served as the 47th vice president of the United States from 2009 to 2017. The two met on a blind date set up by Joe’s brother, though Biden had seen her photograph in a local advertisement. They got married to a Catholic priest on June 17, 1977, at the Chapel of the United Nations in New York City. This was four and a half years after his first wife, Neilla Hunter, and infant daughter died in a motor vehicle accident.

Joe Biden had proposed several times before she accepted, hesitant to take on the commitment of raising his two young sons who had survived the accident. They had their daughter, Ashley, born in 1981, and Jill stopped working for two years while raising the three children. As of March 2019, her husband, Biden, was reported to be actively considering a 2020 presidential run, and a CNN poll placed him as the most popular potential Democratic presidential candidate in a pool of likely contenders.
