Melania Trump and Michelle Obama may have a lot more in common than they imagined.

Donald Trump and Barack Obama are as different as men and as Presidents as could possibly be imagined. What then, could their wives have in common?

Other than the fact that they both had to take on the arduous role of First Lady for the sake of their spouse, not much, you'd presume, and you'd be wrong, reported Bustle.com.

BOTH FIRST LADIES TURNED DOWN THEIR FIRST DATES

The Trumps met during New York fashion week where Melania worked as a model, and the Obamas met in a law firm they both worked in. But both First Ladies turned down the first overtures by their future husbands.

Melania's first date with Trump was dinner at the restaurant Moomba, the A-list hot-spot of the 90s; while Michelle and Obama watched a movie, visited a museum and topped it off with an ice cream.

Both Melania Trump and Michelle Obama have shown themselves to be deeply committed to the welfare of children.

LOVE THAT MAN THE WAY HE IS

Both women have shared the view that love is accepting their men just as they are, with all their complications and flaws.

"I deeply loved the man I had built that life with and I didn't want that to change if he became President. I loved Barack just the way he was."

And Melania Trump agrees with her.

"We know what our roles are and we are happy with them. I think the mistake some people make is they try to change the man they love after they get married."

SEPARATE BEDROOMS ARE THE KEY TO HAPPY EVER AFTER

Another thing that Melania and Michelle agree on, is that the key to being happy-ever-after in a lasting marriage is having separate bedrooms.

It may seem contradictory, but the separate bedrooms allow the couple to maintain a mystique and a spice to their love life that often fades with the familiarity of stolen blankets and loud snoring.

A SHARED PASSION FOR EDUCATION AND EMPOWERING WOMEN

Both Melania Trump and Michelle Obama have shown themselves to be deeply committed to the welfare of children. Melania is currently involved in her project "Be Best," which is focused on preventing cyberbullying.

Michelle announced a new project on October 11, 2018, the International Day of the Girl. The project is the Global Girls Alliance and will be administered by the Obama Foundation as a programme focused on empowering adolescent girls around the world through access to education.

MELANIA TRUMP DOES NOT NEED MICHELLE OBAMA'S ADVICE

Negotiating the murky waters of White House protocol must be a daunting challenge for any new First Lady.

When Michelle Obama took up her role, former First Lady Laura Bush offered to help out with advice if ever she needed it, and Michelle extended the same courtesy to Melania Trump.

The former First Lady Michelle Obama confided this titbit to Robin Roberts, who interviewed her on "20/20" with regards to her new memoir, "Becoming."

Roberts asked Michelle if Melania had ever contacted her for advice, and the former First Lady admitted that she hadn't.

After the interview, Melania Trump’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham released a public statement declaring that Mrs. Trump did not need Mrs. Obama's advice.
