Our favorite couple, the Obamas, celebrated their 23rd wedding anniversary this month. We’ve been swooning over them from the day they first entered the White House and our love has only grown since. In honor of their anniversary, here are five times when the Obamas were our ultimate relationship goals.

  1. What’s a relationship without a little fun? In the picture above, the Obamas are photographed enjoying some downtime together at an Olympic basketball game. They were also captured on the kiss cam that night. Who knew a basketball game could be so romantic?

2. The Obamas always exude style and grace. The China state dinner was no exception to this rule. You know what they say — a couple that slays together, stays together.

3. No matter how much attention the first couple receives, they still seem to be such a normal pair. This is evident in the above photo from Inauguration Day in 2009. Even under the watch of the secret service, the Obamas are lovers in their own world.

4. A relationship is nothing without support. Not only has Michelle always been right by Barack’s side, but he is just as supportive of her endeavors. Here he is introducing Mrs. Obama at her 2nd Annual Kids’ State Dinner.

5. Our final photo comes from the First Lady herself. She recently posted this throwback picture on Instagram of herself and Barack from 1992. How wonderful to see that the love has lasted all these amazing years!


The First Couple represents the epitome of black love. Not only are they both strong and inspiring as individuals, together they are a force to be reckoned with. I’m so proud that they will be a part of American history forever.
