DMITRY KOSTYUKOV / AFP / Getty Images  Becoming parents was one of the life changes that led to a trip to counseling.
“Marriage counseling for us was one of the ways we learned how to talk about our differences,” told Michelle Obama for Robin Roberts last week. “I know too many young couples who struggle and think that in some way something is wrong with them. And I want them to know that Michelle and Barack Obama, who have a phenomenal marriage and who love each other, work with our marriage. Get help with our marriage when we need it. “
Meanwhile, although Obama’s presidential ambitions apparently came high for every woman he came into contact with in the 1980s, Michelle claimed that she was not clued into her prison.
Her brother Craig told Liz Mundy for his book 2008 Michelle: A biography that Barack told him at a party early as he wanted to run for the US Senate and maybe to President one day.
“He would probably have said, “Do not tell Michelle!” “Michelle told Mundy 2007. But Craig Robinson told Vanity Fair that his sister” knew what she came in. “ Obama was elected to the Illinois senate in 1996 and since the US Senate in 2004.
“I have a job and I am the primary health care provider for two very bright little girls,” Michelle, then Executive Director of Social Affairs at the University of Chicago Hospital, told New Yorker 2004 during its Senate campaign. “It’s crazy. It’s not realistic.”
Being a politician’s wife was “difficult,” she acknowledged. “And that’s why Barack is such a grateful man.”
