From the first date 27 years ago, to the last days at the White House, the Obamas have shown nothing but radiant love for each other, and have become one of the most celebrated couples in the world.
“Michelle never asked to be First Lady,” Barack Obama told Vogue. “Like a lot of political spouses, the role was thrust upon her. But I always knew she’d be incredible at it, and put her own unique stamp on the job. That’s because who you see is who she is — the brilliant, funny, generous woman who, for whatever reason, agreed to marry me.”
