Romantic Couples Through the Ages

10 of 14
AbigailAdams

John and Abigail Adams


Proving the power of the pen, John and Abigail wrote over 1,000 letters to one another during their courtship and marriage. Unwilling to follow conventional roles, Abigail ran the family farm and managed the budgeting, without John's interference. This didn't bother the statesman one bit, and he often joked that the household seemed to run smoother in his absence. Abigail even wielded her influence during John's term as President, but was not well received by the American public, who referred to her sarcastically as "Her Majesty." Criticism did not diminish the love between the two, and they remained devoted until their deaths.
