You might have witnessed Barack Obama and Michelle Obama’s love story during recent years in photos and on TV. But this slideshow will give you a rare peek into the First Couple’s private life even before Obama took oath as the President of the United States.
The election is fast approaching and days from now, America will have to say goodbye to President Barack Obama. Along with him, First Lady Michelle Obama will also have to retire her post, after years of spear-heading different charitable causes and bringing various societal issues into light.
Barack and Michelle are both brilliant, dedicated and great models – reason why anyone who’s ever followed their works and private life (what little we know of) will feel nothing short of nostalgic once they leave the White House.
Needless to say, Barack and Michelle Obama are two of the most powerful people in the world right now. But how did the President and the First Lady came to be the power couple that they are now?
Barack Obama and Michelle Obama’s love story started in 1989 when then-Michelle Robinson was assigned to mentor Barack at the Chicago law firm, Sidley & Austin. Three years later, they got married.
On Monday, October 3, Barack and Michelle celebrated their twenty-fourth wedding anniversary and as a toast to their inspiring partnership and marriage, here are some photos of the power couple over the years.
