Jimmy literally married the ‘girl next door’ as their families were neighbors when they were born. Jimmy’s mother reportedly helped deliver Rosalynn, and the next day, she introduced the baby girl to her new neighbor.

Their friendship blossomed every year until it transformed into a beautiful and amazing feeling called love. Less than a year after their first official date, Jimmy proposed. At that time, he served at the U.S. Naval Academy.

Like all other families, Jimmy and Rosalynn have their ups and downs, but with every year they spend together, their marriage only gets stronger. The former president and first lady have four wonderful children and eight grandkids.
