Vice President Joe Biden revealed that he had to propose to his wife five times before she finally said yes.
During his address at the International Association of Fire Fighters 51st Convention in Philadelphia, Biden joked about how nothing has happened to him in his life without a fight, including his marriage.
"Nothing in my life has ever happened by acclamation. Nothing. As a matter of fact, I had to ask my wife five times to marry me before she said yes. So I don't know about this acclamation stuff."
Biden is no stranger to awkward jokes when addressing the public. Recently, he cracked a sex joke while giving remarks at the National Council of La Raza.
