Being married to the leader of the free world is never going to be easy; even if you love, respect and admire each other, politics and all it involves is tough. Former First Lady Michelle Obama has revealed in her much-anticipated autobiography Becoming that working on their personal life behind closed doors was almost as much of a job as being President. And they both treated it as such, going for regular counselling sessions to make sure that they kept their solid marriage on track. Speaking about it on Good Morning America she said that counselling had helped them overcome a rocky patch and taught them how to overcome their differences: “I know many young couples who struggle and think that somehow there’s something wrong with them. And I want them to know that Michelle and Barack Obama, who have a phenomenal marriage and who love each other, we work on our marriage”. As any couple knows, sometimes marriage is the toughest job of them all.
