For four years, the nation has looked to President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama, for inspiration in times of great uncertainty and need. But beyond their civic duties, the president and the first lady have also become one of the nation’s most beloved and inspiring couples. During a recent interview with Barbara Walters, the president reveals how he keeps his relationship with the first lady so strong.
Sitting down with Walter’s for a “Nightline” interview, Obama and Michelle were asked, “How do you keep the fire going?”
After laughing to stall for a moment, Obama responded, “We’ve been married now 20 years, and like every marriage, I think you have your ups and your downs. But if you’ve worked through the tough times, the respect and love that you feel deepens.”
“And then there’s a lot of laughter,” added Michelle.
Well, we’re glad that the president and first lady have figured out how to make their relationship last and we hope it goes on for the ages. Checkout some other long-lasting couples below. – nicholas robinson
