President Obama sent out this anniversary tweet today — just 3 years after his wife, Michelle Obama, told People magazine she considered divorcing him.
In the interview with People magazine in 2009, Mrs. Obama revealed that her marriage to Barack was on the rocks. Since then she seems to be cold and distant to her husband in photographs — especially when she forgets that there are cameras around.
The biggest challenge for a married couple is to keep the spark alive long after the dopamine fades.
In his book, The Amateur, author Edward Klein says the Obamas considered divorcing more than once.
“Michelle actually had divorce papers drawn up,” Klein writes, citing one of her friends.
Michelle’s non-verbal, closed body language is clear and unmistakable. She may not even be consciously aware that she is uncomfortable with her husband.
When we see the Obamas together they certainly don’t look like two people in love. They look more like business partners than a married couple.
Congrats to them for managing to keep their family together for the sake of their two daughters — despite the rumors of Obama cheating on her.
