The Barack Obama and Michelle Obama love story

26 years of love, laughter and friendship.

By Ellie McDonald

"Marriage flourishes when the couple works together as a team; when both husband and wife decide that winning together is more important than keeping score. Good marriages don't just happen. They are a product of hard work."

These are the wise words of Michelle Obama, who also happens to have been happily married to her husband, former-President of the United States Barack Obama, for 26 years.

To celebrate their 26th wedding anniversary, Barack shared a photo of his wife captioning it, "Happy Anniversary, @MichelleObama. For 26 years, you've been an extraordinary partner, someone who can always make me laugh, and my favorite person to see the world with."

They've been together for over a quarter of a century and raised two daughters, Malia, 20, and Sascha, 17, and their love continues to grow.
