Jed Bartlet on The West Wing

Jed Bartlet, The West Wing
When President Jed Bartlet, played by Martin Sheen, spars with his wife, Abbey, on West Wing, we say a little prayer that 30 years into our marriages, we'll be that engaged with our spouses. He may be president, but this TV husband also supports and respects his equally brilliant wife, a Harvard-educated surgeon.

President Bartlet trusts Abbey with state secrets—like his multiple sclerosis diagnosis—and as his health declines, their bond becomes stronger.
