Michelle Obama Discusses Marriage Struggle

As she made clear in one of her last interviews, Michelle Obama expressed that she and her husband, former US President Barack Obama, have been experiencing tension in their marriage for the past ten years. It was in the ten years following the birth of their daughters that Michelle Obama felt that Barack Obama was becoming unlovable.

"People think I'm being catty for saying this — it's like, there were 10 years where I couldn't stand my husband. Ten years! And guess when it happened? When those kids were little," Obama, 58, said via insider. "Little kids "have demands.

They don't talk. They're poor communicators. They cry all the time. They're irrational. They're needy. And you love them more than anything. And so you can't blame them," Obama, author of the new book "The Light We Carry," said. "So you turn that ire on each other." "But guess what?" she continued.

"Ten years; we've been married 30. I would take 10 bad years over 30 — it's just how you look at it. People give up — 'Five years; I can't take it."

The Evolving Nature of Marital Feelings

"Do you like him? I mean, you could be mad at him, but do you still look at him and go, 'I'm not happy with you, but I respect you.

I don't agree with you, but you're still a kind, smart person,'" she said to the host and other panelists, including Tina Lawson, Kelly Rowland, H.E.R., and Winnie Harlow. "The feelings are gonna change over time," Obama continued.

But once the infatuation fades, "people wanna give up on it. But now you're in work." Via. Insider Michelle Obama is well known for her involvement in her husband's presidential campaigns, including delivering a keynote address at the 2008 Democratic National Convention and subsequent speeches at the 2012, 2016, and 2020 conventions.

In her role as first lady, she served as a role model for women and worked to promote awareness of issues such as poverty, education, and health, including nutrition and physical activity.
