Michelle Obama Drops 3 Powerful Tips To A Successful Marriage

Michelle Obama, gorgeous mother of two and former first lady of the US, has dropped some tips to a successful relationship and marriage at Essence Festival this past weekend.

In addition to being an accomplished lawyer, a style icon, and record-breaking author, Mrs Obama is also like another mother when it comes to dispensing extremely valuable life advice. On Saturday night (July 6) during the Essence Festival, she was at it again, sharing some of her thoughts on dating and marriage.

55-year-old Michelle who has been married to Barrack Obama for more that 26 years, left the audience with some thoughtful advice about why women should find an equal who wants “you to win as much as you want them to win.”

The sage words came during a keynote conversation with CBS anchor Gayle King. The topic turned to marriage, and Obama quickly broke in with the philosophies that have helped her and Barack through their years in marriage.

She said in part:

“Marriage is a choice you make every day. You don’t do it because it’s easy. You do it because you believe in it. You believe in the other person.

That’s why it’s so important to marry somebody that you respect. It’s important to marry somebody who is your equal, and to marry and be with somebody who wants you to win as much as you want them to win.”

She drove the point home with a sports analogy, saying picking a partner is similar to picking players on a team. She continues:

“My husband is my teammate. If we are going to win this game together, he has to be strong and he has to be OK with me being strong. I do not want a weak player on my team, nor does he.”

Of course, Mrs. Obama had the perfect description of what we ought to stay clear of in dating. She further stated:

“Be cautious of the man or woman who wants just the easy person. The person who’s not going to force them to grow, who’s not going to expect them to change, who’s not going to hold them accountable.

You wouldn’t pick someone off the bench who is going to show up weak. You want to pick somebody who is going to carry you through. Those are the things that get you over the hard times.”
