This past Tuesday, Barack & Michelle Obama celebrated twenty five years of marriage. In today’s world that is quite a feat. Most people don’t do anything for twenty five years, much less stay married to the same person. Even more impressive is that their marriage withstood eight very difficult years serving in the White House as the President and First Lady.
On the day of their anniversary, Michelle Obama, was involved in a question and answer session at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women. Barack took that opportunity to publicly wish Michelle a Happy Anniversary with a video interruption during her session. I guess being a former U.S. President does have it’s perks!
And don’t think Michelle forgot about this quarter century celebration. She took to Twitter to let the world, and her husband, know that she too was thankful for her partner.

Needless to say, when it comes to recent political couples, Barack and Michelle continue to set a good example for us. They seem to treat each other with great respect, equality, and admiration. They are extremely supportive of one another and not afraid to express their love. Happy Anniversary Obamas! Here’s to twenty five more!
