President Biden’s key to a happy, long-lasting marriage is “good sex,” according to a new book detailing Jill Biden’s role as first lady.

“I would rather be at home making love to my wife while my kids are sleeping,” Biden said in public remarks that year when asked about a possible 2008 presidential run.

Jill Biden, however, was hesitant about the relationship, the book argues, having just gotten divorced at age 23 after a “fake love” with her first husband.

“The idea of ​​marrying Joe, a thirty-two-year-old widower who was still putting his family together, was daunting. So Joe had to propose five marriage proposals before she finally said yes,” the book continues.

Beau Biden also reportedly encouraged the relationship, saying, “Dad, we think we should marry Jill” when he was 7 years old.
