Marital Issues: Barack Obama Recalls The Darkest Moments He Considered Ending Everything After Their First Daughter, Malia Was Born

Barack Obama‘s new memoir A Promised Land ties the personal and the political into one as the former POTUS details his eight years in the White House, and how it affected one of America’s most beloved first families.

These details aren’t included just because Barack’s family has a significant following of its own, between wife Michelle Obama’s insanely successful own memoir Becoming, her new podcast, and the rabid-as-ever interest in his two college-age daughters.

It’s clear that, for the former US president, his political career was never separate from his personal life, because he was never able to shut off how both his struggles and successes ultimately affected his family.

In a raw passage about the side to his early days in politics that he rarely discusses, Barack remembers the strain on his and Michelle’s marriage in the year after their first daughter, Malia was born in 1998.
