The Obamas sure give us couple goals time and time again, and you can almost feel their love and respect for each other just from their beautiful words. 

How it began

The couple met in 1989 when Obama spent a summer at Sidley & Austin law firm in Chicago. Michelle Robinson was the lawyer assigned to be his adviser and it was a position she never regretted. Speaking to the Chicago Sun-Times in 2007, Michelle revealed that she was 'charmed' by this first-year law student and was "pleasantly surprised," upon meeting him.

However, because they worked together, they could not immediately pursue their relationship. Michelle even tried to fix Obama up with her friends. But midway through the summer, Obama decided it was time to stop playing around and he asked Michelle out.
