Former President Ronald Reagan celebrated many important moments, of these, perhaps the most important was marrying his wife, Nancy.
On this date in 1952, America’s beloved political couple were married.
This marriage reshaped American politics (per LifeZette):
President Ronald Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan inspired many of us to be courageous conservatives. But as lovers, Ronnie and Nancy did something more important: They inspired us to be better husbands and wives.
The Reagan’s showed what it meant to be strong as they led the nation through the tensions of the Cold War.
This strength continued until President Reagan passed away (per History):
Shortly after leaving office, Reagan was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and the ever-devoted, stalwart Nancy took care of him until his death in 2004 at the age of 93.
The couple’s undying love is symbolic of the nation’s resiliency.
