    Of course there were a few back in the day:

    "Yes, there have. Six presidents were unmarried when they entered office. James Buchanan never married. Grover Cleveland married while he was president. Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren and Chester Arthur were widowers when they were elected and never remarried. "

    I found it interesting to learn that Ronald Reagan is the only President to have been divorced.

    Exactly, back in the day. Most in the past 100 yrs or so, either were married before hand or were engaged to be married while running. Almost as if someone Single can't do the job.
