Melania Trump, who married President Donald Trump in 2005, would be the first woman ever to divorce a sitting president if she decided to file for divorce from her husband.

Questions about the future of their marriage are being raised, along with what could happen if the 48-year-old First Lady were to divorce the president, because of the speculation about affairs and rude treatment.

Stephanie Grisham, Melania’s spokeswoman, has pushed back on rumors of trouble in the Trumps’ marriage. Still, many people are wondering how might a first divorce play out.

As reported by New York Magazine, if the couple decided to get divorced, here is everything that would happen, including the pricey demand she could require from the president.

In an interview with Washingtonian, prominent divorce lawyer Sandy Ain said: “I suspect if they got divorced, he would pay her a lot of money, and it would be done in an appropriately dignified way."

In Donald’s previous marriages, he had prenups in place, but both of his ex-wives contested them.

His first ex-wife Ivana Trump, the mother of Ivanka, Donald Jr., and Eric, received a hefty $14 million and several properties. Tiffany Trump’s mother, Marla Maples, was awarded $2 million.

If Melania and Donald divorce, the current first lady would likely be granted one of the president's many real estate properties.

Ivana was able to get a Trump Plaza apartment, so it’s possible Melania might also be granted a luxury apartment.

Much to the disappointment of journalists everywhere, a reasonable judge would seal any agreements in an attempt to protect the privacy of the first couple.

Along with sealing personal details, they might expect Melania to keep her mouth shut about the campaign and presidential secrets due to agreements she may have reached with Donald and his advisors.

But perhaps most important, although divorcing the president would surely please the "Free Melania" crowd, the First Lady hasn't indeed shown that she cares much what other people think of her or that she needs to be saved.

Donald was not the only divorced president because Ronald Reagan was also divorced, but it happened not while he's in office, as reported by the Huffington Post.

According to History, it's not necessary for the president to have their wives as their first ladies. When James Buchanan became the president, he used his niece, Harriet Lane, as his first lady.

Therefore, Ivanka Trump could be the first lady if Melania divorce Donald during his presidential term.
