Barack Obama & Michelle Obama
Barack & Michelle have been married for 25 years. I have always felt a sense of genuine love and mutual admiration and respect when I see them in public. I'm happy that myself and so many others had the pleasure of viewing their relationship so up close and personal during Barack's presidency. It was very inspiring to watch.
"It has to be a true partnership, and you have to really, really like and respect the person you're married to because it is a hard road. I mean, that's what I tell young couples. Don't expect it to be easy, melding two lives and trying to raise others, and doing it forever. I mean that's a recipe made for disaster, so there are highs and lows. But if in the end you can look him in the eye and say, "I like you...I stopped believing in love at first sight. I think you go through that wonderful love stage, but when it gets hard, you need a little bit more." ~ Michelle Obama
