Is the White House the right place for romance? Well, it worked for Lyndon Johnson's daughter Lynda, here riding a Ferris wheel on the South Lawn with her future husband (and, later, Virginia senator) Charles Robb in 1967. They met in the White House when Robb was working as a Marine Guard, and later married there. More recently George Bush's daughter Jenna met husband Henry Hagar, a former White House aide, when both were working on her father's 2004 re-election campaign.
