You see his potential
Your man has talent, ambition and drive and you believe he’s going to be the next best thing. So you hang in there waiting for him to sign that NFL contract, for his record deal to go through, to sell one of his paintings or to publish that best selling novel. Michelle saw something great in Barack, and you envision great things for your man one day too. You support him, even though he has nothing right now, because all of that hard work and sacrifice will pay off in the end as you build your lives together.
