For former President of the United States of America, Mr. Barack Obama, October 3 is a memorable date—he got married to his wife Michelle in October 1992.
The duo has captured many hearts with their love for each other. Observers say the president of the United States of America, mentions his wife in almost every speech he gives, and often seems unable to resist showering his wife with Public Display of Affection (PDA) even when the cameras are rolling.
In honor of their 25th wedding anniversary today, former First Lady Michelle Obama shared a sweet message to her husband former President Barack Obama on Twitter along with a black-and-white photo from their wedding day.
“A quarter of a century later, you’re still my best friend & the most extraordinary man I know,” she wrote. “I <3 you." (But she used a double-pink-heart emoji instead of an analogue heart symbol, because she's hip to the ways of the internet, too.) The two met in Chicago, when Michelle (née Robinson) was assigned to advise a young Barack at the law firm he was working at for the summer during law school. Despite his requests, she refused to date him until he offered to quit the job, making the relationship more appropriate. They had ice cream for their first date — Baskin-Robbins, he's said — and were in a relationship for three years before tying the knot in 1992. Sharing a throwback photo of their wedding day 25 years ago, Michelle captioned it: “Happy 25th anniversary @barackobama. A quarter of a century later, you’re still my best friend & the most extraordinary man I know. I ? you.”
