And what does her ex-husband Bill Stevenson threaten to expose in a book he is working on now? Make sure to read until the very end to find out all the information!
Let’s start by talking a little bit about Joe’s first wife. Neilia Hunter was born on July 28th, 1942 in the affluent town of Skaneateles, New York. Her parents were successful diner operators. It was in 1963 when she was a college sophomore at Syracuse University, that she had met Mr. Biden, who was a junior at the University of Delaware. According to The Independent, the pair had met on the beach in Nassau during spring break vacation.
Fun fact for you, when Joe met his future wife’s mother for the first time and when she asked him about his career goals, he allegedly simply replied with “president”. Once he had finished his bachelor’s degree in Delaware Biden moved to Syracuse for law school, where Nelia continued her education by getting a master’s degree in English as well as teaching special needs students.
The two of them would go on to get married on August 27th, 1966, while Joe was still at school. After he had graduated the Bidens moved from Syracuse to Wilmington, Delaware, where he joined the New Castle County Council, thus starting his career in politics. The couple had three children together: Joeseph Robinette who was known as Beau, Robert Hunter who most refer to by his second name, and daughter Naomi Christina whom they would call Amy.
Brains Of His Campaign.
As Joe began to get more involved in politics and campaigned to unseat the U.S Senator from Delaware his family, friends, and business partners, more on which in a moment, were by his side and supported him in all his endeavors, especially his wife Neilia who was described by The News Journal as the “brains” of his campaign.
A Small Victory.
And thanks to all that help Biden was able to unseat J. Caleb Boggs from his seat as a senator and take over the position. A move that shocked many as at the time it seemed that Boggs was unbeatable. Not only was this one of the biggest political shocks at the time, but it had also made Joe the youngest U.S Senator at the time.
Tragedy Before Christmas.
Though it was then, while he was at his temporary office in Washington D.C, several days before Christmas that the family had to come and face a tragedy. On December 18th, 1972, Neilia had taken the children to go and do some Christmas shopping and it was then that the family station wagon had pulled right into the path of a tractor-trailer which allegedly to reports at that time was going at full speed and collided with the Biden vehicle.
Reason For Accident.
As first responders arrived at the scene the two Biden boys were quickly rushed to Wilmington General Hospital where, while their condition seemed serious at first, they managed to pull through and get better. However, unfortunately, it was too late for 30-year-old Neilia and 13-month-old Naomi, who had passed away at the scene of the accident. As the police had later determined, Neilia had accidentally driven into the path of the tractor and didn’t see it coming at all.
Life Changed Forever.
Though such an event was enough to change Joe’s life forever. In his book Promises to Keep he reflected on the fact that, he knew something terrible had happened as he watched his sister pick up the phone, despite the fact that when she approached him she just said there had been a slight accident and that they had to go back home. In a speech at Yale University, years later, he described the accident as something that had altered his life forever.
Nearly Quit It All!
In the beginning, Joe had even considered quitting politics though his friends helped convince him to change his mind. With his sons still in the hospital, he continued to care for them and was even officially sworn into office in said hospital at his son’s bedside. After the accident, Valerie, his sister, had moved in with her older brother and his two sons in Wilmington to help look after them, while Joe would commute to Washington for work every single day. Speaking on his decision to make that same trip every single day he replied that it was because he needed his sons more than they needed him and that he wanted to be able to kiss them goodnight and in the morning the next day.
The First Date.
Focusing on work and his children was what helped to get him through the tragedy. That is until a new love had appeared in his life. 3 years after the tragic accident Joe decided to give love another try and allowed his brother Frank to set him up on a blind date. That is when he met 24-year-old college senior Jill Jacobs. In an interview with Vogue magazine the First Lady spoke with reporters about that first meeting and said that when she saw him arrive, she took one look at him and said “Oh God, this is never going to work.” However, as the date progressed the two hit it off quite well. She also recalled that once they got back and he walked her home, he simply shook her hand, and once Jill was inside she called her mother, at 1 am as she stressed, to tell her that she had finally met a gentleman.
She Said No 5 Times!
As love blossomed between the two, as things usually go, Joe decided to take their relationship to the next level. However, it was easier said than done as Jill had to reject him 5 times! But she had a good reason for it. In the same Vogue interview, she also touched upon the topic and said that each time he asked, she would say “Not yet.” Her reason for it was simple, she had really fallen in love with Joe and his sons and it was those boys who she had in mind when making the decision. She wanted to make sure that their relationship was going to work 100% because, from her point of view, the boys had already lost their mother, she didn’t want them to have to lose another mother figure.
A New Addition To The Family!
Though as you are aware, ultimately Jill would go on to finally say yes, and the pair got married on June 17th, 1977 at the United Nations chapel and had their wedding reception lunch at Sign of the Dove in New York City. At the time Jill also continued working on her master’s degree which she had completed while pregnant with their daughter. And so, on June 8th, 1981 the couple welcomed their only child together, Ashley Blazer. After her birth, Mrs. Biden took 2 years off work to focus on raising the children. While both Beau and Hunter had called her mom, she had never officially adopted them.
Love To Rival The Obamas?
Though all his political campaigns and challenges from that moment on Jill was always by Joe’s side supporting him the best that she could. While many often say that Obama’s had the most amazing love story and are America’s happiest couple many are now point out that with their 40+ years of marriage, the Biden’s could now give them a run for their money.
Trouble On The Horizon.
However, there are some that claim all that the Bidens tell their press and followers is just a perfectly fabricated story and that person is none other than Jill’s ex-husband. Yes, for those of you who might not know, she was married prior to getting together with Joe. According to J-post, the two had married back in February 1970. Her then-husband was Bill Stevenson, a former college football player. Though their relationship was short-lived as the two ended up divorcing just 5 years later. And it is Stevenson that is now claiming that the stories the Biden’s say are nothing more than a lie.
He claims that the fact that the two met on a blind date is nothing more than a lie. According to him, they had known each other long before the tragic accident that had taken Neilia’s life. Allegedly they had met during his campaign to become senator which led to them having an affair. Stevenson had first made these claims in August last year during an interview with Delaware media outlet WDEL.
Cheated With A Friends Wife?
As per Stevensons claims, he and Jill had first got to know Joe when he was a councilman in New Castle Delaware. Bill said that he had asked Biden for help to obtain a license to sell high percentage beverages. He had also added that he threw a fundraises for Joe that raised between $2,500 and $3,000. He commented on how he felt betrayed by the two of them as he claimed Joe was his friend and Jill, naturally, his wife.
Their Official Love Story Is A Lie?
The first time that he had known something was wrong was when his wife had refused to go with him to meet Bruce Springsteen and said that ‘Joe had asked her to keep an eye on the boys’. He continued that the breaking point for him was when a man came into a bar and asked him to pay the damages for a fender bender that involved Jill. But the man had informed him that she wasn’t the one driving it but rather it was Senator Biden. Stevenson explained that it was the final straw for him and that on that same day he told Jill she needs to get out of his house.
A Book About The 'Truth'?
The Biden campaign had denied all of Stevenson’s claims and the accounts that he gave to multiple media outlets according to the Washington Times. Though this is not stopping the man from getting his story out there as according to many reports he is currently working on a tell-all book where he wants to tell his life story and which would also contain the alleged “truth” about the Bidens and focusing on their alleged affair which happened when Joe was still married to Neilia.
So what do you think about that? Are the Biden’s America’s next top couple after the Obama’s? Did you know that Jill Biden was married before she met Joe? Whose story do you think is true? And do you think anything in it could be harmful to his presidency?
