Bill Clinton and Hillary have been married for 46 years – she rejected him twice before saying “I do”

One day, they were studying in opposite sides of the law library when she noticed that he kept starring at her. It was then that she decided to approach him and introduce herself. “Look, if you’re going to keep staring at me, and now I’m staring back. We at least oughta know each other’s name. I’m Hillary Rodham, who are you?” Bill recalled Hillary telling him. Shortly after their encounter, he asked her out on a date.

“She exuded this sense of strength and self-possession that I found magnetic,” Bill recalled during the 2016 Democratic National Convention. “I just went ahead and asked her to take a walk down to the art museum. We’ve been walking, talking, and laughing together ever since.”

As they were both interested in politics and shared love for the same things, he knew she was the one. Before saying ‘I do,’ Hillary turned Bill’s proposal to marry him twice. She just believed she wasn’t ready at the time.

“Bill was in a different universe. It was a different level of connection. I felt like he was the most interesting man I ever met, and ever would meet,” Hillary said in a Hulu documentary.

Recalling those times, Hillary shared with Girls star Lena Dunham that she was “terrified” of losing her identity and getting lost in the “kind of wake” of “Bill’s force-of-nature-personality.”

When he proposed for the third time, she finally agreed and the two tied the knot at an intimate ceremony.

“I married my best friend. I was still in awe, after more than four years of being around her, at how smart, and strong, and loving, and caring she was,” Bill once said of their wedding day.

“It was a big leap of faith, and I think most marriages are,” Hillary added.

The Clintons are now grandparents of three beautiful grandchildren with whom they spend quality time.

On their 45th anniversary, they both posted on the social media.

“October 11th was a beautiful day 45 years ago. Still is. The bride was beautiful too. And still is,” Bill Clinton tweeted. “Happy Anniversary, Hillary. I love you.”

“Forty-five years. Never a dull moment, and you’re still my best friend,” Hillary wrote on Instagram. “Love you, Bill,” she wrote in a post. What a powerful couple these two are.
