Several first couples have had notably large age differences.

  • President Donald Trump and first lady Melania's 24-year age difference isn't the largest the White House has ever seen.
  • Among the many first couples in White House history, age gaps have spanned up to 30 years.

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania set a record for being the only first couple to be on their third marriage.

Though the couple also has a noticeable age gap of 24 years, they're only third in the ranks of sizeable age gaps among first couples.

From the Reagans to the Tylers, these are the nine presidents and first ladies with age differences of nine or more years. Notably, the men were always older than the women.
