The Obamas Celebrate 19 Years Of Marriage

Barack and Michelle Obama marked their 19th wedding anniversary on October 3. The couple had an early celebration on Saturday at Restaurant Eve in Alexandria, Virginia.

When Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson got married on Oct. 3, 1992, the 31-year-old future president worked as a lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School, and had worked on a voter registration drive throughout that election year.

The bride, a lawyer, had worked in Chicago city government as assistant to the Mayor.

The wedding took place exactly one month before Bill Clinton won the 1992 presidential election, defeating President George H.W. Bush and Ross Perot.

Among the guests at that wedding, who would have guessed that the happy couple would become the nation’s first couple just a little more than 16 years later?

    Thanks for the post. What I have seen in marriage is we should be ready and willing to make adjustments in our relationship. And we need to make it a point to give each other space. Also I have seen that sharing a long-term dream strengthens the couple’s bond and gives us something to work for as a married couple. It is very important to understand and accept the feelings and opinions of your partner. Always stress on the importance of faith and trust. (Read my latest post on why my husband hates me)

    On a site note what I have seen in marriage is, to be a successful couple we should have a strong sense of ‘we,’ acting and making decisions as one unit. I am sure all married couples fight occasionally. But we need to make sure that we fight or argue fair if we really had to. Having respect for your partner will avoid bad arguments and discussions with them. Also finally I have seen that forgiving each other is one of the fundamental needs in any marriage.
