10 Marriage Lessons the Obamas Can Teach Us

By hismrshermr |

It’s no secret that the President of the United States adores the First Lady and her him. Their marriage is one that garners a lot of attention from the public eye and with the election just weeks away we are seeing even more of them. My husband and I both agree that the POTUS and FLOTUS have set quite an example for couples across the nation.

We can also have more love residing in the house that we do live in and by working together with our partner our everydays just might get a little easier too.

Regardless of your political stance there is something to be learned from watching these two. Continue reading for 10 marriage lessons we can all learn from the President and First Lady.

Marriage Lessons We Can Learn From the President and First Lady

Always Have Your Spouse’s Back

Sure they have had their share of challenges, all couples do, but you never hear the First Lady laughing in agreement when someone says something negative about her husband. I imagine there are decisions that he has made that they don’t see eye to eye on but she isn’t calling him out on it the way some of us do with our own partners. And if she ever does say, “I told you so,” she does it in private. The two of them operate as a team supporting one another. When we see them together we see them united.


What marriage lessons have you learned (or been reminded of) from observing the President and First Lady?

This year my husband and I celebrated two years of marriage. I look forward to us one day celebrating our 20th year with our children alongside us.  It is one of the many reasons “Why I Vote” — for our future.  Join Babble and the First Lady Michelle Obama in sharing the reasons why you vote here.
