Michelle confessed there were ‘times that I wanted to push Barack out of the window’ as she opened up about the presidential couple’s marriage. Michelle, 56, also told young couples that ‘if that breaks a marriage, then Barack and I have been broken off and on… but we have a very strong marriage.’

Speaking to Conan O’Brien on her Michelle Obama Podcast, she also warned that ‘you can’t Tinder your way into a long-term relationship’ – with the Obamas set to celebrate their 28th anniversary next month.

Mrs Obama during the podcast compared the choice of a husband or wife to selecting a basketball team – saying she had married ‘my version of LeBron’.

‘If we looked at marriage as a real team, you want your teammate to be a winner. You want LeBron, you know,’

she said.

She added:

‘There were times that I wanted to push Barack out of the window. And I say that because it’s like, you’ve got to know the feelings will be intense. 

‘But that doesn’t mean you quit. And these periods can last a long time. They can last years.’ 

Mrs Obama expanded on her thoughts in an Instagram post on Sunday, saying that marriage ‘takes a lot of work, a lot of honesty with ourselves and our partners’.

‘That’s one thing I’ve learned. I’d love to hear some of the things you’ve learned about marriage and about yourself,’

she told her 42million followers.

Sharing a cute throwback photo of her and husband Barack Obama, 59, posing together on their wedding day, the mum-of-two wrote:

‘Last week on The #MichelleObamaPodcast, Conan and I reflected on our marriages.

This relationship can be one of the most foundational pieces of our identities—bringing us so much joy, meaning, and support every single day.

But one thing is for sure: It also takes a lot of work; a lot of honesty with ourselves and our partners.

That’s one thing I’ve learned.

I’d love to hear some of the things you’ve learned about marriage and about yourself.’
