Michelle And Barack Obama Celebrate 27th Wedding Anniversary With Touching Tributes: The Magic Is Still Alive

"27 years ago, this guy promised me a life full of adventure. I’d say he’s delivered. Here’s to our next chapter of becoming empty nesters and discovering what’s next—while still feeling the magic that brought us together all those years ago. Happy anniversary, Barack," wrote Michelle.

The ever-in-love couple Michelle and Barack Obama recently celebrated their 27th anniversary, and the former President took to social media platform Twitter to post a loving tribute to his wife, Michelle Obama. In the photo, the two are embracing and looking out at a sunset together. He captioned the photo: Like the Beatles said: It’s getting better all the time. Thanks, babe, for 27 amazing years! Soon after, the former First Lady, too, shared a cute picture of the couple to celebrate the occasion. She wrote: 27 years ago, this guy promised me a life full of adventure. I’d say he’s delivered. Here’s to our next chapter of becoming empty nesters and discovering what’s next—while still feeling the magic that brought us together all those years ago. Happy anniversary, Barack.



 

The two were wed on October 3, 1992, in Chicago, after dating for three years, according to Time. The two of them, whenever photographed, have always been captured in their natural element, full of love. "Barack and I spent eight years trying to operate in complete perfection because we didn't feel like we had a margin for error," Obama told Sarah Jessica Parker in December when her tour stopped at Brooklyn's Barclays Center for a Q&A.



 

"Which we were used to, because oftentimes when you're the first or the only, the bar shifts a lot. The bar gets set, you meet it, you exceed it, they move the bar." "I know too many young couples who struggle and think somehow, there's something wrong with them," Obama told Good Morning America's, Robin Roberts. "I want them to know that Michelle and Barack Obama—who have a phenomenal marriage and who love each other—we work on our marriage and we get help with our marriage when we need it."



 

Finally, after they moved out of the White House, Michelle spoke about how they finally have some alone time. “We are finding each other again,” Mrs. Obama says in an exclusive at-home interview with PEOPLE about her post-White House life and new memoir, Becoming, on sale now. “We have dinners alone and chunks of time where it’s just us — what we were when we started this thing: no kids, no publicity, no nothing. Just us and our dreams.”



 

Even in her memoir, Becoming, Michelle Obama kept it as real as she could. She openly spoke about how the two of them had to seek help from a marriage counsellor to keep their marriage afloat. “Because we’re role models, it’s important for us to be honest and say, if you’re in a marriage and there are times you want to leave, that’s normal — because I felt that way,” the former first lady says. 



 

Did she herself ever consider leaving Barack? “There were definitely times when I wished things were different,” Obama tells PEOPLE, “but I don’t think I ever thought, ‘I’m just checking out of this.’ “ This just goes to show that not every couple is perfect and always in love, like the movies portray them to be. There are times when you want to bite each other's heads off, but the real strength lies in the fact that you both find a way to get over this together.
