Sunday's New York Times Magazine cover story "The First Marriage" takes a close look at the Obama union. Washington correspondent Jodi Kantor writes:

[T]he Obamas mix politics and romance in a way that no first couple quite have before. Almost 10 months ago, they swept into Washington with inauguration festivities that struck distinctly wedding-like notes: he strode down an aisle and took a vow, she wore a long white dress, the youthful-looking couple swayed to a love song in a ceremonial first dance and then settled into a new house. Since then, photograph after official White House photograph has shown the Obamas gazing into each other's eyes while performing one or another official function.

And you can see all of that lovey dovey-ness HERE, on our Obama Big News page. But how do other presidential marriages stack up? Check out a slideshow we originally posted last Valentine's Day, and tell us which first marriage seemed to have crazy amounts of chemistry, and who looked pretty tame.
