In the accompanying caption, the 44th president explained that he was taking time to appreciate his woman amid the world's events. Praising Michelle, he wrote

"Every day with @MichelleObama makes me a better husband, a better father, and a better human."

Barack, staying true to his desire to help the nation, urged their well-wishers to help those around them eligible to vote. 



Similarly, Michelle shared a sweet photo of her and Barack in a restaurant, alongside a heart-melting message about her love for him. She gushed:

"28 years with this one. I love @BarackObama for his smile, his character, and his compassion. So grateful to have him as a partner through everything life throws at us."


She followed in her husband's steps and told fans that their one request for their anniversary was for people to make sure those around them are part of the upcoming election. 


Despite their inspiring love story, Barack and Michelle, who walked down the aisle on October 3, 1992, haven't been immune to the challenges that the quarantine has placed on couples.

During a recent appearance on "The Rachel Ray Show," the author "Becoming" confessed to her husband making her angry. She revealed that sometimes she gets annoyed by his presence in the room.



Regardless of the peculiarities, Michelle noted that the former president still works at keeping their romance alive, recounting that he recently took her on a date that involved an alfresco picnic and jazz. 


The pair, who are proud parents of two wonderful daughters— Malia and Sasha— has become a role model for marriages worldwide because of their honesty about their challenges.

During an episode of "The Michelle Obama Podcast," that featured gust Conan O'Brien, the former first lady spoke about how challenging marriage can be. She recalled that there were times when she wanted to quit the union. 



However, she noted that it was important not to give up when things got hard. She then advised the younger generation, give their relationships time in order to be able to see their partners in different life spheres. 

She also emphasized the need for honesty and commitment and urged people not to use social media as a way to find love.
