Unlike a lot of other politicians, this powerful couple is remembered primarily for the love story that they share. This couple is far from flaunting their affection to the world, but their story spreads all the way back to 1988 when they first met. Barack Obama was then working at a summer job and Michelle was his advisor. She first went out with him after he asked her several times and he couple dated for 3 years before marrying and becoming the couple that we know today.
Their affection can be shown for each other through small touches and smiles that make us all swoon just a little bit. Through even the hardest times during Obama’s time as President, the couple stayed strong, and this is what make them so remarkable to anyone who is looking to learn a motivating lesson in their lives from this incredible couple.
They will be missed for many reasons when the new President takes over, but their love story is one of the biggest ones.
