10 The Truth About The Obamas’ Marriage

Gepubliceerd op 6 jun. 2018
This is the truth behind the former president and Michelle’s marriage! These are the top facts about the relationship and marriage of Barack and Michelle and the truth about the Obamas’ marriage!

6. Before the Presidency – Before going full-force into the kitchen, so to speak, Michelle and Barack had to decide whether or not they could take the heat. They wanted to figure out what political involvement could do for their more profound objectives involving social change. Considering Barack’s dreams of a more progressive society is one of the things that drew Michelle to him initially, it isn’t surprising that they would want the ultimate aim of his presidency to encompass those passions. Although he believed the best way to go about achieving these aspirations would be through politics, his wife tried to go around it, attempting change on a smaller scale through community organizations. They didn’t want their marriage solely based on government projects, but instead, wanted their union to magnify the goals they’d already set for themselves. This thought-process and pre-planning strengthened the couple’s relationship so that once he became president, the stress of the position wouldn’t tear them apart. Michelle backed him up throughout everything even though her early beliefs were against government involvement. It looks like it worked out in their favor and the two made an impact on societal standards that will last an eternity.

5. During the Presidency – Michelle had a lot of say during Barack’s run for office and maintained an important position throughout his presidential career. However, she said she was by no means a “co-president.” Although she and her husband discussed a lot of matters together, such as healthcare, and Michelle helped him in many ways concerning his public image, Barack made most decisions concerning things like military matters. She also remained focused on her own goals for societal change. In 2009, she put in a new garden at the white house to generate a discussion about the country’s welfare. Michelle began the campaign called “Let’s Move!” in 2010, whose goal is to create a healthier future for the nation’s families. The movement encourages fresh food choices, provides better options to school cafeterias, makes healthy alternatives more budget-friendly, and promotes exercise. So, even while Barack was making huge moves as president, Michelle was following her aspirations.
