Meet The Only President Who Refused To Marry, He Used His Niece As 1st Lady Because Of What He Want

It is hard to trust a world right now without a first mother. Politicians need to present themselves as a respectable family member or lady in order to be effective in gaining public trust.

 However, one man did more than he expected and became the first president of the United States to rule without a wife. He was the 15th President of the United States, and his name was James Buchanan.

 Buchanan is still the only president who did not want to get married. He had an affair with Anne C. Coleman, the wealthy prince of Pennsylvania, at the age of 28. He ended the affair for unknown reasons, and unfortunately Coleman died later, probably from suicide.

 Why he never married:

 Reports say President James Buchanan was homosexual, which explains why he never married. Shortly before he became President, Buchanan served with Alabama Senator William Rufus King for 15 years.

 Pictures of his niece whom he used as first lady:

 For decades, Buchanan and King shared a house. In the 19th century, it was a very popular practice. The investigation also revealed that King Washington's acquaintances in Washington called him "Miss Nancy" and Buchanan's "soul mate".

 Buchanan has a widowed sister who takes on the role of First Lady because she became a bachelor and decided not to settle down.

 Do you think he did the right thing? let's hear your thoughts
