Former US First lady Michelle Obama recently explained that her relationship with Barrack Obama hasn’t been rosy all the time
that at times she wanted to “push Barack out of the window”.
She made this revelation during the most recent episode of The Michelle Obama Podcast.
Michelle Obama, who will celebrate her 28th wedding anniversary with husband Barack Obama next month,
spoke candidly about the up and downs of her marriage with guest Conan O’Brien.
“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.”. she said
Michelle then went on to say that people should view searching for a partner like assembling an all-star basketball team
and that a person should ideally pick the absolute best person to be with.
“You want LeBron James, You don’t want the guy, third row on the bench, who didn’t make the team, but we often don’t think about that. What you’re supposed to say, is, I have married LeBron. My version of LeBron.’” Michelle Obama added.
The 56-year-old “Becoming” author also stressed the importance of giving yourself time
to see the person you’re dating “in an array of situations.”
“There’s no magic way to make that happen except getting the basics of finding somebody,
being honest about wanting to be with them, to date them seriously,
to plan on making a commitment, to date them, seeing where it goes,
and then making it happen,” Michelle Obama further said.
“You can’t Tinder your way into a long-term relationship”. She concluded.
Meanwhile Michelle and Barrack Obama who both share two daughters, Malia, 22, and Sasha Obama, 19, tied the knot on Oct. 3, 1992.

It’s been another heavy stretch for so many of us. And this week’s episode of The #MichelleObamaPodcast is a conversation I had a little while back with my friend Conan O’Brien. It’s about marriage—a source of strength and perspective through times like these for so many of us. We reflect on our own marriages and experiences as parents––and talk about the importance of honesty, authenticity, and being your true self with your partner. And because it’s Conan, this one’s a lot of fun. I think we all can use that right now. Listen in at the link in my bio.
