- Michelle and comedian Conan O'Brien talked about marriages in her latest episode of the Michelle Obama Podcast
- The former US first lady said the talk made her reflect on her marriage and noted that relationships like hers brought joy and give ones life meaning.
- The mother of two also said honesty was integral for a marriage to work
Former FLOTUS Michelle Obama has given fans some insights on what it is like to be married to a former US president.
The mother of two shared a message on Twitter as she reflected on her marriage while recalling an episode of a podcast she did with comedian Conan O'Brien.
"Last week on The #MichelleObamaPodcast, Conan and I reflected on our marriages. This relationship can be one of the most foundational pieces of our identities, bringing us so much joy, meaning, and support every single day," she said.
The award-winning author also noted that marriages needed a lot of work and honesty with oneself and their partners was crucial.
"But one thing is for sure: It also takes a lot of work; a lot of honesty with ourselves and our partners. That’s one thing I’ve learned. I’d love to hear some of the things you’ve learned about marriage and about yourself," she added.
Michelle in an earlier post joked that there were times she wanted to push Obama out of the window as they went through difficulties in marriage, but said challenges were in every marriage.
She wanted young couples to understand that these periods would be there and would last long but if she had given up during the tough times, she would have missed on so much beauty.
On Tuesday, August 4, as the former US president was celebrating his birthday, Michelle described him as her most favourite guy.
The 44th president was turning 59 years old and his wife shared a throwback picture of their family from way back when their daughters, Malia and Sasha, were still young kids.
This was even before the two became occupants of the White House and was also during a vacation at a beautiful scenery that lit up the background.
"Happy birthday to my favourite guy. Here's to all the good days, blue skies, and new adventures to come," she captioned the photo, adding a kiss emoji at the end.
