How much do Barack and Michelle love one another? Let us count the ways!
If there is one thing that is absolutely undeniable about President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle is their unwavering, undeniable, inspirational love for one another for over 25+ years! And quite frankly, we can't get enough! Having first met in 1989 where the two were one of the few Blacks at Chicago law firm Sidley Austin, the couple (whose first date was a trip to an art institute, followed by a movie date to see Do the Right Thing, and a first kiss outside of an ice cream parlor), instantly fell for each other and it was love at first 'Spike!'
They would later get married in 1992, and give birth to their daughters Malia Ann (18) and Natasha (15) in the years to follow. And, as we all know, after successfully creating a family of their own, they would later become the face of a nation, serving as the first Black, first family of our nation between 2008 to now!
The last 8 years have been a whirlwind for the Obamas, but in-between their hectic schedules, the couple still found time to inspire us with their love. Whether it's a a little PDA between PSA's, or a full-own interview with the likes of Barbara Walters of Vogue, the Obama's "love goals" is everything!
Check out some loving quotes from favorite love birds through the years, and feel free to fall in love with them all over again!
1. Cute Only Lasts For So Long.
"He was always special, you know? And not special, like, he's gonna be important, he's gonna be president. He was special in terms of his honesty, his sincerity, his compassion for other people. Cute's good. But cute only lasts for so long, and then it's, Who are you as a person? That's the advice I would give to women: Don't look at the bankbook or the title. Look at the heart. Look at the soul. Look at how the guy treats his mother and what he says about women. How he acts with children he doesn't know. And, more important, how does he treat you?
You should never doubt yourself. You shouldn't be in a relationship with somebody who doesn't make you completely happy and make you feel whole. And if you're in that relationship and you're dating, then my advice is, don't get married. Get out of it. And find that person who brings you complete and utter joy with who you are at the moment." -- (Michelle Obama in Glamour Magazine, December 2009)
