For the first ten years of their marriage, Michelle Obama claimed she “couldn’t stand” her husband, Barack Obama, because they were both carrying different burdens.
She explained that she was doing the heavy lifting while the future president was frequently gone during the early years of the couple’s union, when they were raising two small kids.
People assume that I’m being snarky when I say this. On a recent Revolt TV panel with H.E.R., Winnie Harlow, Kelly Rowland, and Tina Knowles, Michelle remarked, “It’s like, there were ten years where I couldn’t stand my husband.
Guess when it occurred? when those young children were.
When Barack, 61, would find time to play golf or travel for work while she tried to juggle being a mother and a lawyer, Michelle, 58, claimed she started to feel “ire” toward him.
For ten years, she recounted, “we were trying to establish our professions and, you know, worried about school and who’s doing what and what, and I was like, ‘Ugh, this isn’t even.
“And what’s this? Marriage is never 50/50. Sometimes, even though I’m 70 and he’s 30, guess what? After 30 years of marriage. Over 30, I would prefer ten awful years.
In October 1992, the 44th President and the author of “Light We Carry” got married. They have two daughters together, Malia, 24, and Sasha, 21, both of whom resided in the White House throughout their father’s administration.
The sisters currently live together in Los Angeles, where Malia has been working in television and Sasha is a student at the University of Southern California, Michelle disclosed in November.
The son of “Ray” star Clifton Powell and a former basketball player, Clifton Powell Jr., is dating Sasha. Dawit Eklund, a song producer, has been associated to Malia.
