Presidents That Had Affairs

Philandering vs. Faithful: Presidents

Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky may be the best known, but he's far — so far — from the only president to wander. Can you guess which presidents have philandered and which have stayed faithful. At least as far as we know!

I think the end of the sentence for each one is "that we know of" ;)

I think this thread is rather tasteless.

JFK was a adulterous pig. 2 versions re: Sally Hemmings: the relationship wasn't consumated until after his wife died so therefore it wasn't an affair. Or the second version: Thomas Jefferson started the affair with Sally Hemmings before his wife died. Some sources even have it that his wife was aware of the affair. It took years, but it was proven through DNA testing that he was the father of the child. And P.S. Sally was a slave and also the half sister of his wife. She was one of the slaves Mrs. Jefferson inherited after her father died.

Lies can become truth when they are reused, or rather, recycled over and over. I feel that's the case with President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. I will always continue to question allegations,rumors, etc... of unfaithfulness/extramarital affairs. There was a time when I didn't make much of that regarding John F. Kennedy. The President and his wife First Lady Jacqueline Lee Kennedy became even much more closer after losing another child, their Patrick Bouvier Kennedy from Infant Respiratory Distress Disease. Jackie K. suffered a miscarriage in 1955 then a stillborn birth (Arabella Kennedy) in 1956. Both Mrs. JLK and her husband went through a lot regarding their children. They would've been the parents of 5 children had they didn't suffer those three loses. After the death of Patrick, their bond as husband and wife grew. And how could that not? Losing not just one but three children like that(one unborn). People have just taken this extramarital thing and run with it.

TJ was faithful to his wife. He grieved at her bedside while she was dying, and everyone in the room heard her make him swear to never remarry. Sally Hemmings was his wife's half sister, by the way. That affair came years after his wife died.

I thought Thomas Jefferson was having an affair with Sally Hemmings while his wife was alive. That's how the made for tv movie made it out.
