It’s been 26 years, 2 children and 2 presidential terms and our love and admiration for the marriage between Michelle Obama and her husband, former (we wish it was current) President Barack Obama is stronger than ever. You don’t have to look far to see and feel the unconditional love between two of the most powerful people in the world, but Michelle is quick to let everyone know that hard work is involved to make a marriage last.

Michelle Obama is full of quotables on various aspects of life, but it’s perhaps her advice on marriage that we should take most note of, especially if you’re headed down that road one day. Sure, the Obamas are the ultimate #CoupleGoals and #RelationshipGoals, but it’s because they work diligently to keep it that way.

Check out some of the former First Lady’s best quotes on marriage and keep them handy with you when you need some encouragement in your own relationship.


“When the kids go to bed and after [Barack’s] done a little reading, we’re usually curled up in our den, and we’ll watch a show together. Or we’ll talk and catch up. It’s nothing major, but that’s what marriage is about. Not the big, splashy stuff. It’s just the little day-to-day sharing and routines and rituals that we still have.”
