Is Donald Trump Still Married?
At present, Donald Trump is still married to Melania Trump, whom he wedded in 2005. Melania had served as the First Lady of the United States during Trump’s tenure as President from 2016 to 2020, and if he were to be re-elected in 2024, she would resume the role for an additional four years.
According to Wikipedia, Donald Trump and Melania’s romantic journey was initiated at a party in September 1998. Shortly after, they started dating, even as Trump’s divorce from his previous wife, Marla Maples, was still in progress, and Melania pursued her career as a professional model. When Trump ran for the presidency as a member of the Reform Party in 2000, Melania accompanied him during the campaign.
After getting engaged in 2004, Donald Trump and Melania proceeded to tie the knot officially on January 22, 2005, in Florida. The couple’s union was soon followed by the arrival of their first and only child together, a son named Barron, who was born on March 20, 2006, just a year later.
Melania has been an ardent supporter of Donald Trump since his initial presidential campaign in 2015, continuing during his tenure as President from 2016 to 2020, and even presently, as he aims to reclaim the presidency in 2024.
About Melania Trump?
Melania Trump, originally Melanija Knavs, is a Slovenian American businesswoman and former model who served as the First Lady of the United States from 2017 to 2021, being the wife of President Donald Trump. She was born on April 26, 1970, in Novo Mesto, Yugoslavia (currently Slovenia), and grew up in Sevnica, Yugoslavia, where her father sold cars, and her mother worked in the textile industry. Melania attended the University of Ljubljana for a year before deciding to pursue modeling, which she excelled in Slovenia, Milan, Paris, and eventually New York.
Was Donald Trump Married Before He Met Melania?
While Melania’s marriage to Donald Trump marks her first union, it is not the same for the former president. Trump’s initial marriage was to Ivana Trump, which lasted from 1977 to 1990 and resulted in the birth of his three adult children: Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, and Ivanka Trump. Ivana passed away in 2022 and was laid to rest on Trump’s golf course in Bedminster, NJ.
Following his split from Ivana in 1990, Trump waited for nearly three years before tying the knot with his next wife, Marla Maples. However, their relationship came to an end in 1998, and Trump began pursuing Melania while still in the process of getting divorced. Trump and Marla finalized their divorce in 1999, paving the way for his relationship with Melania to become official.
