John Kerry married his second wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, in 1995. She is the widow of H. John Heinz III, who served as a U.S. senator from Pennsylvania from 1977 until his death in a plane crash in 1991? John Kerry?s first wife was the former Julia Thorne, whom he married in 1970. The couple separated in 1982, and their divorce became final in 1988. The marriage was annulled by the Catholic Church in 1997. They have two children: Alexandra (b. 1973) and Vanessa (b. 1976)? John Kerry is no relation to former Nebraska senator Bob Kerrey, who also served in Vietnam and lost part of his leg to a grenade wound? In the election of 2004, President Bush?s supporters mocked Kerry for being a war hero in Vietnam (Bush himself was in the Texas Air National Guard while Kerry was in Vietnam, but Bush?s flying privileges were suspended when he did not attend his medical examination).
