Stevenson met Jill in August 1979 and the couple married six months later when Jill was 18 years old.
Stevenson, who ran a celebrated rock venue in Wilmington, Delaware, said he introduced Jill and Joe in 1972.
Joe was a councilor at the time campaigning for the United States Senate and was married to his first wife, Neilia.

“I introduced Joe to Jill in 1972. Just before the election, in ’72,
“Jill, Joe, Neilia and I were in his kitchen. How did you forget that? ‘

Bruce Springsteen would play at Stevenson’s location, The Stone Balloon, and Stevenson had to go up north in New Jersey to pay him upfront.
He told the show that he asked Jill to go with him and she said no – something he vividly remembers.
“She said Joe asked me to keep an eye on the boys,” he said. ‘I thought, hmm …’
In October, he said he was sure Jill was having an affair.
Their car, a brown Corvette, was involved in an accident in May, he discovered, and surprised to ask the man who informed him about the accident for details.
He looks at me and says oh, she wasn’t driving.
‘I said, her beloved Corvette, wasn’t she driving? He said no, Senator Biden was driving. ‘
Stevenson said he then confronted Jill and asked her if she was having an affair with Biden.
“She said nothing – she just looked at me,” he recalled.
‘I said you have to go. You have to get your own place. ‘
The way the Bidens tell their story, Joe saw a picture of Jill in March 1975 – after her marriage crashed – and they went on a date and have been together ever since.
Stevenson and Jill divorced in May 1975.
Jill and Joe say they didn’t meet until March 1975, when the divorce was close.
‘It was years ago, but guess what – it’s so topical now. Because he picks people over character, ”Stevenson said.
“I’ve said from the very beginning that I don’t have hard feelings about Joe, Jill, the affair. But if I don’t do it now, it will never be able to be raised. ‘
Stevenson said he voted for Barack Obama but will vote for Donald Trump in November because he agrees with his stance on supporting the police.

These claims are fictitious, ostensibly to sell and promote a book. The relationship between Joe and Jill Biden is well documented. ‘
But her ex-husband Bill Stevenson told DailyMail.com their story of how the presidential candidate fell in love with Jill after a blind date was made up.
