We're well over a year away from the Presidential Election of 2016 and the field of declared candidates is unusually large;  Almost 25 people are in the running between the Democrats and the Republicans.  With that many politicians vying for the Oval Office, it's no wonder that the average American can't name all of the candidates off the top of their head - yet alone their respective spouses names.  Can you?

What follows is a list of the first names of the spouses of each of the declared candidates for both parties.  This list is complete as of this writing and doesn't include any rumored candidates (Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Mitt Romney) or Rick Perry - who suspended his candidacy this past week.  It's also shy two candidates - Jim Gilmore and Lindsey Graham - who are presently single.
