While October 3rd, marked former President Obama’s and First Lady Michelle Obama’s 27th wedding anniversary, the nation was reminded of how much to two love each other by the former First Lady Michelle Obama’s post.
“27 years ago, this guy promised me a life full of adventure. I’d say he’s delivered. Here’s to our next chapter of becoming empty nesters and discovering what’s next—while still feeling the magic that brought us together all those years ago. Happy anniversary, Barack.”
And even as the President gave his farewell speech in Chicago in 2016, former POTUS gave honor to his wife again (see below):
So what does it really take to be married for 27 years? Well, the First Lady explains it all.
“What I’ve come to find is, you don’t sweat the small stuff,” FLOTUS told Ellen DeGeneres. “The journey that we’ve taken together, the fun we’ve had, the challenges we’ve faced, the two beautiful children that we’re raising — I kind of give him a pass now when he leaves his socks on the floor or tells that story for the one hundredth time and wants us to laugh at it as if we first heard it.”
The President gave his ode to his wife as well in the form of a facebook post on their 2016 anniversary. He posted it with a simple caption that read, “Dancing through life… Happy Anniversary.”
In honor of their 27 years of marriage, here are 27 of some of their favorite “love” moments caught on camera…
Man, are we going to miss them in office (*tear*).
