Former President Barack Obama posted a sweet romantic Valentine's Day message to wife Michelle.


Valentine's Day is the perfect occasion for couples to declare, and reaffirm their commitment to each other.

Former President Barack Obama celebrated his 26-year-old romance with Michelle by posting a touching Valentine's Day message on social media.


"Happy Valentine’s Day to the extraordinarily smart, beautiful, funny, one and only @MichelleObama. It’s true; she does get down to Motown."


Admirers of the Obamas have enjoyed watching their joyous relationship over the years. Barack has never failed to mark Valentine's Day with a loving post, and often sends Michelle loved-up messages "just because."

Every February 14 the couple share lovely couple photos and dedicate romantic playlists to each other, and this year was no exception.


Michelle revealed in her memoirs "Becoming" that they had been to couples therapy, and worked daily to build their marriage.


Barack posted a gorgeous photo of himself and Michelle at a glamorous event, and the former First Lady looks gorgeous. Barack expressed his admiration for his lovely wife, and revealed that "she does get down to Motown."



Michelle posted a throwback photo of herself, Barack and their two girls, Malia, and Sasha from their first years in the White House, and captioned it:

“So lucky to call these three my valentines for all these years.”

After 8 exhausting years in the White House, Michelle confessed that she and Barack are rediscovering the pleasure of each others company, and reviving their romance:

“We are finding each other again. We have dinners alone and chunks of time where it’s just us — what we were when we started this thing: no kids, no publicity, no nothing. Just us and our dreams.”

The couple became an inspiration for millions when Michelle revealed in her memoirs "Becoming" that they had been to couples therapy, and worked daily to build their marriage.


That hard work has paid off, and we wish them all the happiness and romance in the world.



The Obama Presidential Center was to be built in Chicago, in the city's historic Jackson Park, but the project's location may have to be changed.

In May 2018, an advocacy group "Protect Our Parks" filed a lawsuit asking a federal judge to prevent the building of the Center on land which has been reserved for public use.

"Protect Our Parks" claims that the Obama Presidential Center will infringe on the citizen's rights to free access to every part of the park.

According to the Illinois legislature, Jackson Park is declared free to all persons and held in public trust for the benefit of the citizens of the City of Chicago and State of Illinois.
