The former President of the United States and the former First Lady of the United States just celebrated their wedding anniversary.
Michelle and Barack Obama have been married for a quarter century. Their happy and faithful marriage is one of the few things conservatives can celebrate about Obama’s 8 years in office.
Michelle posted about the couple’s 25th wedding anniversary on her Twitter page. She wished her husband a happy anniversary, and she celebrated their relationship.
“Happy 25th anniversary @barackobama. A quarter of a century later, you're still my best friend & the most extraordinary man I know. I (heart) you.”
They met 28 years ago while Michelle was working at a law firm in Chicago. During the summer of 1989, Barack Obama worked as a summer associate at the law firm; Michelle was assigned to mentor him, reported USA Today.
Three years later, they were married at Chicago’s Trinity Church of Christ. Two hundred people attended the September 1992 wedding.
“It was beautiful,” Michelle’s close friend, PR exec Yvonne Davila, once told Us Weekly. “Her dress was beautiful. She was happy. She was marrying the man she loves.”
The parents of Malia, 19, and Sasha, 16, are clearly still in love. In his farewell speech in January 2017, Obama took the time to praise his wife.
“Michelle, for the past twenty-five years, you’ve been not only my wife and mother of my children, but my best friend,” he said, fighting back tears. “A new generation sets it’s sights higher because it has you as a role model. So you have made me proud and you have made the country proud.”
Here are their heartwarming photos of the couple while they were in office. Even if you didn't like them, you have to admit that it's nice to see a happy couple when the country's divorce rate is so high.
Happy anniversary to the Obamas!
