There was and still is speculation on whether or not he was gay. We will never know unless new evidence turns up. He never married and that made him suspect. He was engage…d to a woman as a young man but she broke it off and he wrote to the effect he was heart-broken. He did have some close male friends and a man shared his house for awhile. However,he was never seen displaying any sexual interest in a male and his letters do not prove anything. James Buchanan was believed to be a gay, because of his currency with staying around William R. King soon after his fiancée's death.
he didn't have any hardships because he never go married

Yes, one of the best examples of a Hamiltonian politician in his realization of the importance of trade and commerce, James Buchanan scored the United States a maritime trade …treaty with Russia. He also displayed his political adeptness in his staying out of the Kansas-Nebraska Act, thus leaving his reputation untarnished and making him the only president that seemed fit to keep the union stable, and did he ever keep it stable. An opposing viewpoint: In most historian's ranks of American presidents, James Buchanan appears at or near the bottom. One would be hard-pressed to find any notable achievements while he was in office and the failures of his Presidency (notably presiding over the secession of the Southern states and the start of the Civil War) tarnish his legacy. The most remarkable thing about Buchanan is that he was elected at all. As sociologist Jim Loewen wrote, "There can be no doubt that James Buchanan was gay, before, during, and after his four years in the White House. Moreover, the nation knew it, too - he was not far into the closet....Today, I know no historian who has studied the matter and thinks Buchanan was heterosexual."
no, he is the only US president who did not marry. He was once engaged to Anna Coleman but she broke it off for unknown reasons.
She went to Forest Grove in Pacific Grove! She really liked that school!
James Buchanan was the 15th president of the United States for four years. Many people consider him to be one of the least active or worthwhile presidents so far. He also foug…ht in two long wars. He stood up for the constitutional rights of individuals to hold slaves. Buchanan won after a hotly contested campaign and the threat of Civil War if any of the Republicans won. The Dred Scott court case occurred at the beginning of his administration which stated that slaves were considered property. Despite being against slavery himself, Buchanan felt that this case proved the constitutionality of slavery. He fought for Kansas to be entered into the union as a slave state but it was eventually admitted as a free state in 1861. There was an economic depression in 1857 called (so appropriately) the Panic of 1857. The North and West were hit hard but Buchanan took no action to help alleviate the depression. When the time came for reelection, Buchanan had decided against running again. He knew that he had lost all support, and he was unable to stop the problems that would lead to secession. In November of 1860, Abraham Lincoln (A Republican) was elected as president immediately causing seven states to secede from the Union forming the Confederate States of America. Buchanan did not believe that the federal government could force a state to remain in the Union. Afraid of Civil War, he ignored aggressive action by the Confederate States and abandoned Fort Sumter. He left office with the union divided.

In 1857, an economic depression hit which is now known as the Panic of 1857 and the North and West were hit the hardest and he did nothing to help the people or the depression…. He stated that the U.S should buy Cuba from Spain and he added by saying that if they refused then the U.S should take it by force. By the time he was up for re-election he didn't run because he knew that he had lost support from the people. By far the biggest failure and pretty much his legacy as president was that he did nothing to prevent the south from seceding from the union and he did nothing at all and he abandoned Fort Sumter and he completely ignored the aggressiveness of the South and he left office with the union divided.
President James Buchanan Buchanan was the Fifteenth (15th) President of the United States, from 1857 to 1861. He was born on April 23, 1791 in Cove Gap near Mercer…sburg, Pennslyvania. He died on June 1, 1868. Here is the short bio of James Buchanan from WhiteHouse.gov: Tall, stately, stiffly formal in the high stock he wore around his jowls, James Buchanan was the only President who never married. Presiding over a rapidly dividing Nation, Buchanan grasped inadequately the political realities of the time. Relying on constitutional doctrines to close the widening rift over slavery, he failed to understand that the North would not accept constitutional arguments which favored the South. Nor could he realize how sectionalism had realigned political parties: the Democrats split; the Whigs were destroyed, giving rise to the Republicans. Born into a well-to-do Pennsylvania family in 1791, Buchanan, a graduate of Dickinson College, was gifted as a debater and learned in the law. He was elected five times to the House of Representatives; then, after an interlude as Minister to Russia, served for a decade in the Senate. He became Polk's Secretary of State and Pierce's Minister to Great Britain. Service abroad helped to bring him the Democratic nomination in 1856 because it had exempted him from involvement in bitter domestic controversies. As President-elect, Buchanan thought the crisis would disappear if he maintained a sectional balance in his appointments and could persuade the people to accept constitutional law as the Supreme Court interpreted it. The Court was considering the legality of restricting slavery in the territories, and two justices hinted to Buchanan what the decision would be. Thus, in his Inaugural the President referred to the territorial question as "happily, a matter of but little practical importance" since the Supreme Court was about to settle it "speedily and finally." Two days later Chief Justice Roger B. Taney delivered the Dred Scott decision, asserting that Congress had no constitutional power to deprive persons of their property rights in slaves in the territories. Southerners were delighted, but the decision created a furor in the North. Buchanan decided to end the troubles in Kansas by urging the admission of the territory as a slave state. Although he directed his Presidential authority to this goal, he further angered the Republicans and alienated members of his own party. Kansas remained a territory. When Republicans won a plurality in the House in 1858, every significant bill they passed fell before southern votes in the Senate or a Presidential veto. The Federal Government reached a stalemate. Sectional strife rose to such a pitch in 1860 that the Democratic Party split into northern and southern wings, each nominating its own candidate for the Presidency. Consequently, when the Republicans nominated Abraham Lincoln, it was a foregone conclusion that he would be elected even though his name appeared on no southern ballot. Rather than accept a Republican administration, the southern "fire-eaters" advocated secession. President Buchanan, dismayed and hesitant, denied the legal right of states to secede but held that the Federal Government legally could not prevent them. He hoped for compromise, but secessionist leaders did not want compromise. Then Buchanan took a more militant tack. As several Cabinet members resigned, he appointed northerners, and sent the Star of the West to carry reinforcements to Fort Sumter. On January 9, 1861, the vessel was far away. Buchanan reverted to a policy of inactivity that continued until he left office. In March 1861 he retired to his Pennsylvania home Wheatland -- where he died seven years later -- leaving his successor to resolve the frightful issue facing the Nation.
