Michelle Obama, Barack Obama

Michelle Obama reveals "angry" fights with former President Barack Obama led her to seek marriage counseling even before they tied the knot.

In her new memoir, Becoming, the former First Lady said she didn't think she had anything in common with Barack.

Michelle admitted she and Barack fought often. "I don't think we have anything in common. My thoughts trailed off there. As a measure of frustration, I drew a long emphatic gash across the rest of the page," she wrote.

Michelle Obama

Michelle revealed she has an anger management problem that was so severe, it felt like "a kind of fireball running up my spine and exploding in the moment."

"I tend to yell when I'm angry. When something sets me off, the feeling can be intensely physical," she writes.

She said the arguing began even before they got married.

The couple fought about whether to tie the knot, and they fought about the wedding planning. -- Like most men, Barack wasn't interested in the fine details of weddings.

Michelle Obama

Barack and Michelle tied the knot in 1992. By the following year, the couple was in marriage counseling -- but it wouldn't be their last time sitting on the therapist's sofa over their 26 year marriage.

She said Barack was not in favor of marriage counseling. He is somewhat austere by nature, and he thought a marriage counselor was a waste of his time.

"Sitting down in front of a stranger struck him as uncomfortable, if not a tad dramatic," the First Lady wrote of her husband.

Realizing that the problem was Michelle, the therapist changed her daily routines and encouraged her to exercise to provide an outlet for her anger.

Michelle said she started exercising regularly and setting dinner on the table by 6:30 p.m. -- whether her husband was seated at the table or not.

"We didn't wait for Dad," Michelle wrote. "It was his job to catch up to us."

Michelle Obama’s memoir Becoming is on bookstore shelves today (Nov. 13).

    I like this couple! Pres Obama didn’t seem like he was getting barked on && what not... I cannot imagine that lol

  • Rayne

    I have to get this book. Imma put a plastic furniture cover on mine tho

  • Phillybruh

    So they argued about couple stuff and when it got bigger than either of them they sought help.

  • Pamela

    Such a real and solid couple. No pretensions whatsoever .

  • Trace da Ace

    Well....these are real situations with a real marriage.....ALL couples have arguments....and they work through it and move on. I admire Michelle for talking about what other couples refuse to. This is life, this is marriage...the good and the bad.

  • Scromes1212

    I been saying this for years smh Barack said is his book that they had serious problems when he first decided to run for office. She was against it but he wouldn't let up. They almost got divorced a couple times but people want to act like they are some type of super couple smh they human just like us.

  • Faithz

    Oh to be a fly on the wall
    with all that moaning going on in the bed room.

  • Renee26

    And through it all he still holds the umbrella for her when it rains ?

  • Faithz

    One of my many Brothers says he would love for Michelle
    as to be backed up to him in his bed at night.

  • Scromes1212

    So you bragging about your brother(who clearly is lonely) lusting over another man's wife smh

  • wonderwoman

    That’s what couples do, seek help if you want to stay married or in the relationship. You don’t leave the first sign of trouble. Love Barry, and Chelle.

  • Coy little wink

    I can imagine him being unflappable and so nonchalant in an argument that would make me even madder ? my boo is like this I'm like when are we going to have an argument? Its always just me telling him off

  • Renee26

    ?

  • WhoKnew

    If you love each other and want to save your marriage that's what you do. When my marriage was in trouble, I sat my EX down and discussed with him that we should go to counseling. He said he did not want a third party in his business and he refused to go. Two months later, I filed for divorce and he was shocked. I could not take nare nuther day of him arguing and starting fights with me just so that he could get out of the house and go cheat. Once, he was out of the house, he thought he could go live with his side piece and she kicked him to the curb quick and in a hurry. That's when he tried to come back to me and agreed to go to counseling. It was too late for me at that point. The first night he was out of the house for good, I slept like a baby for the first time in a couple of years. That was back in 2002. I've said many times in various post, I am past being used and abused but if you genuinely love me and I can trust you then I will move heaven and earth to save us - including counseling.

  • Scromes1212

    Men don't like counseling. Especially black men

  • ohdearme

    Well I said it before and I'll say it again, I wouldn't have shared. Don't "@" me trying to tell me that "MY" opinion is wrong, because how I feel may not be how you feel, but it's a part of being ME!

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    so you have two strong-willed individuals who love each other, but had to find a way to work out their differences, and even though he didn't think it would help, he STILL participated in the counselling. sounds like they made a mature decision.... what's to scoff at here?

    (and Sandra, you may pinpoint Michelle as "the problem" but dealing with a man who super confident and ambitious can be challenging because that type of man is used to taking charge and establishing his authority. that's fine for business and in the streets, but when he comes home, he needs to tone it down because that woman who supports him is his partner, not his subject. as my mom used to say "he's Y'all's daddy, not mine" LOL!)

  • Phillybruh

    Me and the partner were having big problems before we purchased our house and we sat down with someone as well. We both had counseling individually over the years and once as a couples. Having an outside party listen and let you figure out what to do is a great thing. More people should get it.

  • Renee26

    Nope not going to depict this Queen as an "angry black woman" nope nope nope

  • iWasteTime

    Oh she is cute as a cat!!
    I love and miss her and can't wait to start reading her book!

  • Yui

    Marriage is work. That's why I’m single at the moment, got to be in the right headspace.

    Good for them that they’re putting in the hours so to speak.

  • Phillybruh

    Imagine two people in a relationship that's unflappable. Its a pain in the ass sometimes...lol

  • WhoKnew

    Yep. He's a black man and he was having none of it until he saw that he really had married a wonderful woman who loved him unconditionally and had forgiven him for his first affair. Then he had another affair (he had a problem with the bottle and I knew that before I married him). Somehow you think love will make them put down old habits.

    "he thought he could go live with his side piece and she kicked him to the curb quick and in a hurry"
    ___________________________

    i think this happens more that men want to admit, LOL!
    i know for a fact that there are women out there who PREFER married men; they see it as some type of challenge and as a dis to the next woman. it's all a game to them. once they help a fool break up his home, they will change the locks on theirs, and move on to the next dummy.

  • Scromes1212

    You single cause you don't want to do the work to be married?

  • WhoKnew

    I absolutely agree.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    EVERYBODY comes to the table with luggage. You've just got to know whose baggage you're carrying...LV, Gucci or American Tourister.
    I applaud people who have the courage to look at their Stuff and be willing to work through it...together.

  • WhoKnew

    Yep. I think that was the case with his side piece. She was like nope you are not coming here.

  • Yui

    It’s almost as if we aren’t allowed to have emotions. So annoying at times.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Agreed. When you take people for All that they are...it's like another Full time job.

  • Scromes1212

    You have a lot of negative things to say about him smh wonder what his opinion is of you. JS

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    it would seem that an objective third party would be something that both people could agree to at least try. sometimes, folks are reluctant to take that step because they have an idea that they are the one who will be called out for their b.s., LOL! (other times, folks are genuinely private individuals and the thought of 'telling their business to a stranger' is enough to send them off the deep end.) to each...

  • Scromes1212

    Works both ways

  • ClaireHuxtable

    "Real" doesn't = angry.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Wow. The pictures of Michelle selected for this article are interesting, to say the least.

  • Faithz

    He buried his wife, and just so you know, I can type wtf I want to , and yo as can skip, hop, slide down that rail, are jump straight to the basement, and get in line with the others, and wait for me to give a care about what you are whining about and wait there in line with the rest of them for me to give a single $&^$.

  • Dowoop

    But its Sandra so not surprising.

  • Phillybruh

    We both had a hard time speaking up and declaring what we wanted out our marriage. Both people can't be chill and laid back and go with the flow about everything it was ok before the kids and the house but we really had to work on that.

  • Renee26

    Ok...as if we must always be "on" smiling to appease the masses. Heaven forbid we have a deep thought or get tired and that smile disappear...next thing ya know somebody snaps a pic and claims you're angry or have a bad attitude

  • Dun Dilly

    Michelle was a convenient pawn for Barack's political aspirations.

  • Scromes1212

    Smh I see I said something that triggered you. Tell your brother to go on Christian mingle or submit his picture for morning wood. That might help him find his own wife

  • WhoKnew

    When a man is wrong and has a good woman that has stood by him through all of his shyt, he will throw you (the wife) under the bus like you ain't shyt. He was very angry with me for years for not taking him back. Why would I? I tried to get him into AA. No deal. I tried to get him into counseling no deal. What was I supposed to do? Stay in a bad marriage with someone who did not love me enough to work on it? You have no idea how much I sacrificed to save our marriage. Today, he sees it. Today, he gets it. Back then he couldn't because he was living out of a bottle.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Shut up

  • Dowoop

    Don't feed the troll.

  • Yui

    Would it make sense to be in a marriage or a relationship if you’re not mentally prepared? No. That isnt fair to the parties involved.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I didn't pinpoint Michelle as the problem - her therapist did. Michelle is not in denial. She very clearly wrote that SHE has an anger problem that is so severe, she feels it physically. Some Black women are angry for no reason. Her therapist helped her to channel her anger in non-destructive ways.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Gone Gul!! *applause*

  • Scromes1212

    True

  • MJF

    I agree with you!

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Love them and miss them dearly. The epitome of class and grace.

  • Scromes1212

    Don't come in here with facts lol

  • Dowoop

    I know a few women who prefer unavailable men. Not necessarily married, just someone they don't have to deal with all the time.

  • Yui

    Right! There are too many stipulations when it comes to us. Its sad really.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    People: Male & female persons.

  • KLove

    Interesting....I have to wonder if part of the problem was, that he didnt want to be with her for real....but his political aspirations took precedence over his true happiness

  • WhoKnew

    Thanks. It's hard when you're trying to save a marriage and only one person is trying.

  • Scromes1212

    So just so I have a understanding of what your saying, you had no problems and he had all the problems? Maybe you addressing your own problems would have helped him deal with his problems. I don't know your situation but I know a lot of females in the black community have a hard time seeing the error in there ways but seem to have no problem pointing out other people's flaws. In my humble opinion

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The pictures fit the post content perfectly. Please be mindful of the post title: "Michelle Obama: Angry Fights with Barack Led to Marriage Counseling"

  • Phillybruh

    Nah I think his political aspirations would have stayed local if she weren't on board for the ride. That's how you know if its real when they support your goals and see the big picture instead of just their picture.

  • LeeSeeCee

    She is is being honest. What a freaking concept. Marriage is hard work. 2 people melding their lives together. When to be of the same mind and when to be an individual.. This sh*t just aint for every damn body. Folks need to be more interested in what a marriage takes and not the damn wedding itself.
    In regards to her anger, WE ALL GOT IT SIS! Stop it! Something/someone hit me the wrong way, I have/can/will snap. Been there, done it. Learned some hard lessons about it along the way through COUNSELING. I would like to think that as I have aged, I have learned to control myself and to also empathize with the person that is vexing the hell out of my last goodt nerve!!

  • Scromes1212

    That's the reason why we hate sh*t like marriage counseling smh y'all always think it's y'all that's doing all the work lol

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Could be, but I think she's his equal. They seem to both bring out something in one another. So far it's worked.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    exactly. like, we're constantly scrutinized, overlooked, under-appreciated, and devalued. yet we're supposed to walk around like stepford mammies, with lowered eyes, bent knees, sambo smiles, and rubber necks constantly nodding yes'm, right away suh.... every other creature made in God's image can fiercely reject subjugation, but not Us. we're supposed to take the 'L' and learn to love it. folks want to walk all over you & treat you like something on the bottom of their shoe, and then think they can dictate and regulate your response. come correct and we won't have a problem; try me, and You create a problem (don't start none, won't be none). let the "golden rule" be your guide. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/56ce236d64670be7ff13e10d2a972fc11005e41e720791a9c52fcd821f8c566a.gif

    HOLLERS!!!!!!!!!!!

  • WhoKnew

    To be honest no I did not have any problems that affected our relationship or marriage. I cooked, I cleaned, waited on him hand and foot, was involved with my in-laws as if they were my own parents, gave it to him on the regular. I'd make his breakfast and set it out in our backyard on a nice sunny day and we'd eat and talk and enjoy the summer breeze. I tried to create harmony in his life at all times. He once told me he had never met a woman that was so affectionate and had shown him so much love. He said he was used to being cussed out and mistreated by women. That's real talk and the truth. So to answer your question, I am not a perfect person but I brought no issues to our relationship or marriage. None. I just wanted my man and wanted to grow old with him and did my level best to make it work even though he couldn't until it was too late.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    so, Michelle being the problem is a direct quote from the book?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    And many men are quick to bring a 3rd party into the mix which only makes the issue more complex. They think they can just drop her at any time. However, some times she doesn't go away so easy.
    I'm just glad you were able to find that peace. It really does put it all into perspective.

  • Scromes1212

    You proved my point smh you are a perfect wife so how could a man have a problem with you, right? Smh I can guarantee his opinion of you as a wife is very different then yours. It's hard for us to see the error in our ways. You could be doing something you think is so great and he could despise it. In a marriage you have to be self aware. But no disrespect to you, just my opinion

  • sunni_daze

    Marriages are work and fights will be had.

  • Anonymouse

    I don’t want to waste my time reading this article.

    Michelle Obama is an angry woman. I picked up on that way back in 2007 which is why I never liked her.

    Angry people are a problem wherever they go.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    i get it. when children and finances have to be considered, it's time to do the grown-up thing. (this how people get hurt, Lol!)

  • Faithz

    So You never spoke highly of another woman? ARE R u another Daffy Duck who hate women.

  • Faithz

    Dang thanks for reminding me.

  • Yup, I said it

    You are right. People who are very similar tend to clash at first because of their similarities. Two people who are both independent, intelligent, and opinionated are bound to have some blow outs.

  • Scromes1212

    Cut it out lol you deflecting. Your brother was talking about smashing another man's wife smh that's what you consider speaking highly of another man's wife? Smh just sad

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Good post. Don't let anybody ever put a guilt trip on you like "maybe it was your fault too". Nobody's perfect, but sometimes you can bend over backward to make a relationship work with that other person, and yet nothing you do is ever good enough for them.

  • bella28498 .

    I appreciate her honesty, I agree marriage counseling is a must. Too many women walking around acting like their marriage is perfect and it isn’t. Being married is totally different from having a live in boyfriend.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    please stop explaining yourself. you obviously put a LOT into your marriage, and, for whatever reason(s), your ex was not willing/able/ready to give as much of himself. it takes two. you did your part. NEXT.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Make it plain!

  • Miss Thang

    No way. Barack was going to be president no matter what.

  • Miss Thang

    Sadly.

  • Miss Thang

    yes.. very manipulative.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Her husband has seen fit to stick with her for 26 year now, so she must not be that bad.

  • Phillybruh

    If she said no he wouldn't have ran.

  • Anonymouse

    Ask yourself why there are so many pics of her with a scowl on her face.

    Are you so blinded by your adoration that you can’t see that this lady has an anger management problem?

  • Miss Thang

    "he's Y'all's daddy, not mine" ..YASSSSS LOL!!!

  • Anonymouse

    He’s doing what he’s supposed to do.

    If you notice, SHE’S the one with the problem, not him. He would be foolish to cut and run because of that.

  • Miss Thang

    At the end of the day, each person has to decide if the marriage is worth keeping or not.

  • Scromes1212

    I'm sure he put a lot in also. But when you have one side of a story it can make your opinion biased, and we don't want to do that :)

  • Miss Thang

    lmaooooooo

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    you're sure?

  • Phillybruh

    To be honest putting the people we where before the marriage and the kids and the house behind us was a life saving. If we took those attitudes into the life that we were trying to create it would have been a mess.

  • Scromes1212

    Very :)

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Shut up

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Why all this negativity? Did somebody hurt you? Rough childhood? ...or what?
    You come off like a really bitter and unhappy person for real.

  • Miss Thang

    I don't see Michelle with any more scowls than Melania has on her face.

  • Anonymouse

    Also, there’s a reason why he was never home.

    Men have ways of coping with this.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    well, you may be right. he put a lot of 'something' into the dissolution of his marriage. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/68bc52b2a4f54f3dc0d4dea29ec0c12c203c19b65d4d18beb2fbbd13d0be6a55.gif

  • Anonymouse

    I’m just going to keep talking. Hopefully, you’ll get over it or just scroll past. ???

  • Miss Thang

    Barack already wrote in his own books that Michelle didn't want him to run for office, so please cut the BS.

  • Anonymouse

    No, we don’t all got it. Not all of us are emotionally unbalanced smh

  • Anonymouse

    Don’t worry about my happinesss. I’m just telling the truth and you don’t like it.

  • Miss Thang

    Marriage is NOT for EVERYBODY! Too many fools around here talking about getting married!!!! Sit your azz down!

  • Scromes1212

    Maybe he did maybe he didn't but I'm just speaking from a man's perspective. To get married and make you my wife and start a family usually takes a lot of effort. But we don't know both sides so it's all just speculation.

  • Scromes1212

    That's what's so crazy smh I been telling people this for years and they so blinded by false hope they don't even believe it

  • Phillybruh

    I know what he wrote, what I'm saying is President is different than local politicians all of his advisors have said on several occasions if she didn't give her blessing he wouldn't have ran for President.

  • Scromes1212

    But she didn't give her blessing smh lol

  • Phillybruh

    She did give her blessings, he was President. She actually didn't think he could win.

  • Scromes1212

    Exactly lol some are just better at it then others

  • Kimocha

    I would have never guessed they started off arguing before even getting married... Obama seems so laid back... like the type that doesn't even argue.... But I know marriage ain't easy and can bring out the worst in some folks... I appreciate her honesty.... Her book seems very interesting.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    We have fallen so Far so FAST!

  • Shawty

    Glad they stuck with it and became relationship goals for the rest of us.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    i don't discount what you have to say "from a man's perspective" but you're obviously biased. what i disagree with most is your dismissive attitude towards what's been shared here. to say we don't know both sides comes off as 'that's just the woman's side of the story' ...generally, that can always be considered to be the case; personally, it can come across as disrespectful to the person sharing their experience. that's all i'm saying.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    His type...he think he cute...and he is l0l!

  • Scromes1212

    What? If I do something you didn't want me to do and you stayed with me anyway that doesn't equal you giving me your "blessing". That equals marriage counseling lol

  • Phillybruh

    I ain't going back & forth with you Nikkas!

  • bella28498 .

    ??? I don’t think u know how deep and true your comment is. I truly got a good laugh off of this.

  • Kimocha

    Yes he is!

  • Scromes1212

    I don't disagree with what your saying but to say you aren't biased towards a females perspective is just a little misleading. Let's be honest. That's what makes for good dialogue, both perspectives of a issue. In my humble opinion

  • Scromes1212

    Cool, keep living your best life. Smile b*tch!

  • Around the world

    Ignore that clown. He's trolling you.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Lol right. The folks that shouldn't be married always ask me what am I waiting for and I ask them all the time why should I and they can never answer

    exactly!! I know how messed up their marriages are, and I'm thinking they want me to be just as miserable as they are?? No thank you!

  • Well$$Well$$?

    A picture is a snap shot of time. Just like SR posted 4 pics of her scowling you can probably google hundreds of pictures of her smiling. I just dont understand how you can determine she needs anger management based off pictures and not actually knowing Michelle Obama...

  • Well$$Well$$?

    This! Most of the time she looks miserable when she's doing FL stuff and disgusted with Trump. Yet no one is saying she has anger issues..Interesting.

  • Y me?

    Sandra hates her. She knows what she be doing

    yeah, that's why i said you don't need to explain yourself, smh.
    sometimes, even if you don't agree, you can be gracious and just offer a 'thank you for sharing' ...i didn't read anything you offered as you pushing 'your side' of things. you were simply sharing your experience and providing some insight into marital struggles. no reason for you to be confronted or challenged.
    peace & blessings hun!

  • What???

    This man was President of the United States of America and she still wasn’t happy. I feel bad for Barack having to sleep with that pitbull to win the black female vote. Barack Obama is a prosititute in AND out of the house. Poor guy.

    I love Michelle, but I wish she hadn't given life to the 'angry black female' stereotype. The ignorant and uninformed, will say 'if Michelle is angry, all black women must be. After all, she has everything, so it must be 'their' nature' smh.

  • Myopinion

    How can you be so sure he put in a lot of work also?

  • Y me?

    Michelle doesn't represent all black women and none of us should burden ourselves with the responsibility of representing ALL black women. Anybody who is foolish enough to think that 1 = all believes that because they want to believe such negative stereotypes. Good behavior means nothing to ppl who are hellbent on seeing the worst in others.

    If you really want to push this foolish logic go tell all the perpetrators of mass shootings that they're making ALL white men look like deranged evil losers

  • Anonymouse

    How dare you come here and tell the truth? Remember, they’re the epitome of “black love” ???

  • Maat Morris

    I bet she is unhappy with this Man because Michelle is black and Barack Obama is black priviledge , because he is one of the good old boys so his way has been paved for him a long time ago , he come from a different bloodline he is not indigeneous so he will never truely understand her struggle , and his Mother is white and you are whatever your mother lineage is , ..I know some of you will argue with me on this issue but all u havet to do is research it . Whatever your Mother nationality is that is what you are . You can only produce what u are if u are Chinese u can only have a chinese baby . Michelle will never admit it but they both are sellouts they had a opportunity to do something great for black people and they choose to help the lgbt , and sign that Indefinite Detention Executive Order and now we all can get treated like terrorist he only furthered the Agenda of the Elite , and they are getting rewarded with riches and nobody black will not admit it , And Black People is waiting on somebody to come save them so bad that they refuse to hold him accountable for how he didn't do nothing for us .. Our people no nothing about Supreme Love and Supreme Hate they don't have no idea who they real enemy is so they keep repeating these same patterns over and over again .The only real Laws are the Univeral Laws unfortunately Black people no nothing about those so they stay entrapped by these made up gods Laws .Love and Light

  • dontgetblocked

    It's no surprise that Michelle is a bitter, selfish, and angry woman. Any wife wants to please her husband and cook for him. What about compromise instead of dinner is served whether he's home or not? He's the head of the household. I think their marriage is an arrangement and as soon as she can, she will divorce him. She acts like she doesn't even love the man and I'm not an Obama fan at all. However, I respect the man and his position as a husband and a father.

  • dontgetblocked

    She's always been a mean Chitown Southside girl.

  • dontgetblocked

    All she did was exercise, pose for magazine covers, wish to be Beyonce and roll her eyes for eight years. Oh yeah...she ruined school lunches.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The pics fit perfectly with the subject.

  • elroy

    that's actually not true about the mother's lineage, he's biracial

  • Alextra Ballard

    Lmaooo

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    And they are still standing and not afraid to admit it. Relationships are hard work and we all know that.

  • Gail

    Perhaps you missed the part where I said 'the ignorant and uninformed ' smh

  • Y me?

    You think it's Michelle Obama's job to withhold her story for sake of the ignorant and uninformed ? Lol How silly is that?

  • Gail

    It may be her truth, but the stereotype of 'angry black female' has been our cross to bear. Like it or not, angry or not, the last thing we need is Michelle Obama 'me too-ing' the shyte.

  • Gail

    Again, you totally miss the point. It's a part of her story that I BELEIVE should've been untold so as not to validate ignorance.

  • What???

    Michelle doesn’t have know how to give him the energy of peace and grace. I think deep down she feels like she DOESN’T deserve him. He’s not tryin to make love to her law degree he’s got to go to bed with her growling with a snarl on her face. Secret - Femininity beats the baddest lookin’ bytch ALL DAMN DAY.

  • What???

    Probably because she didn’t want him to do better than her in life. She envys her husband and comes from a feminist competitive point of view with him. It’s not womanly love it’s cold lawyer love she’s giving him she knows no other way.

  • YellowSauce

    I'm a Leo and the Caps that I know have been twads .... and thats my nice version of how I feel about them ... they are naturally mean people usually always unnecessarily so ...

  • Maxx

    It is sad you think so and the mentality of a slave. 'Bet not let master know who I really am'. Anyway, I choose to focus on the FACT IS SHE SEEKED HELP. That shows what a strong, smart, responsible, sensible, black woman does when she realizes she has an issue...not try to hide it. Think.

  • Judge Mental Will

    Too perfectly lol

  • CCP19

    This book is great so far and I applaud Michelle for being real. More couples should seek pre -marital counseling and continue to get counseling through out their marriage. Getting counseling is a smart decision.

  • Eileen

    so she wasn't the angry black women? Oh yes she was! Se was angry then and she is STILL angry now!

  • Eileen

    Michelle is hard! She is not a soft women. A women's strength is ALWAYS in her femininty not in her yelling and screaming! obama is the type of man that does not like drama and rather than engage this silly women he just tuned her out. I wonder if she did this in front of her daughters?...yep she did! she was mad during the white house years, frowning up, roling her eyes and franking her mouth..smh

  • Eileen

    Yep...I learned that as a military officers wife, the man has a lot on his mind! As your wife you are there to soothe him and love him. These stupid women today want the men to get on their page and soothe them...smh where is the old school mothers that can teach these dumb feminist women a lesson about loving their men...smh

  • Eileen

    Oh honey I am on your team. I agree with you 100% now if only the "talented 10th" could persuade the rest of the plantation , we could get some things done! The odummers were the biggest sellout with no souls! by their actions I say this neither one of them are Christians so they are susepticle to anything of the world...smh black folks got NOTHING from the odummer administration! It was all about globalism (replacing black folks pt1) lgbt/ homo/pervs, illegal immigration(replacing black folks pt2) extreme terriost muslims (odummers 1st cousins) man hating feminism and praising black men that shoot police while black women are lying on their backs (single parenting) Yes! it was a mess for 8 long years. Hell-r-re would have sealed the deal with her lying a-- I could go on and on but you get the picture...

  • Eileen

    Yep...you are who you are unless you allow yourself to be exposed and level up

  • Eileen

    its true the women has everything and still pookin out her mouth

  • Eileen

    I agree

  • Eileen

    You are so right...

  • Eileen

    You are so right feminist lawyers are so freaking mean and competative no man wants to make love to a women he has to compete with.

  • FIGHT THE POWER

    she was mad, barry was still dipping off to those infamous south side bath houses with rahm.

  • Latisaj

    I'm assuming she sacrificed a lot to compromise herself for him. Probably set many of her dreams aside to provide Obama the support to eventully become the leader of the free world. When we give up on our hopes and dreams we become bitter. Glad she's honest and real. Happy they worked through it and continue to work through it.
