The marriage between former U.S. president, Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle is one which many people around the globe continue to look up to for inspiration.
The power couple are a role model for marriages and together they uphold love, understanding and strong values. Along with their two daughters and two dogs, they were able to paint the perfect picture of what the perfect marriage should look like, especially in the age where fame, fortune and power is the greatest threat to marriages worldwide.
But how did all this really start?
How did Barrack Obama propose to Michelle before they both built this beautiful partnership as husband and wife?
During an interview on The Late Night Show with Stephen Colbert as part of her activities to raise awareness for her just released bestselling book - Becoming, former first lady of the United States opened up on how Barack Obama popped the big question and it is a story that will wow you.
According to her, at that time Barrack Obama was a young lawyer who had just graduated from Harvard whom she was mentoring.
"He was a hot shot out of Harvard," she said in smiles.
While she was mentoring Barack, they started dating and oh yes when asked if she was in support of work place romance, she said "Yes, I do, because it worked out fine for me!"
She recalls that he was always hard on the ideas of marriage - that it wasn't necessary, and they would always go into endless arguments on the issue because "as a lawyer she needed to defend herself with points," she said.
One evening, they went out for a celebratory dinner after Barack had finished his Bar exams and there he was, picking a fight with her over the same issue, as usual she was deep in the arguments and was trying to dish out her point when a waiter walked up to her with a platter and a box on it.
Barrack opened the little box to reveal a ring and she was like "what?"
Only for him to reply "now that ought to shut you up;" and she admits it did!
Wasn't that lovely? Now, leave your comments below.
