麥迪遜令人印象深刻的妻子

當麥迪遜宣佈將在1794年9月15日迎娶多莉派恩托德(Dolley Payne Todd)(1768-1849)為妻時,許多人感到相當驚訝,他是個活潑、有魅力、善於社交的二十六歲寡婦、有個年幼的兒子(她的前夫和小兒子死於1793年的黃熱病);多莉比麥迪遜年輕十七歲,也沒有生孩子,她曾是貴格會的信徒、但因為嫁給信仰圈外的男性而受到信徒們的否定:麥迪遜是個美國聖公會的信徒。

多莉的個性相當外向(她愛綁頭巾相當出名!),麥迪遜則相當害羞,但兩人相處的關係相當好;多莉麥迪遜身居第一夫人有多少年的時間?

Some people were surprised when James Madison married Dolley Payne Todd (1768-1849) on September 15, 1794. She was a spirited, charming, sociable 26-year-old widow and mother of a young son (her first husband and younger child died in the 1793 yellow fever epidemic). Dolley was 17 years younger than Madison, and they had no children together. She had been a Quaker but was disowned by the Society of Friends (Quakers) for marrying outside her faith: Madison was an Episcopalian.

Dolley had a very outgoing personality (she was known to wear turbans!) and Madison was small and shy, but they had a wonderful relationship. For how many years was Dolley Madison the first lady?
