The former president and his wife Michelle celebrate their love.
Despite leaving the oval office, Barack and Michelle Obama are still well loved by many, earning the moniker, 'forever first family.' This Wednesday, Oct 3 mark's the couple's wedding anniversary, with the two Ivy League alums celebrating 26 years of marriage.
The Obamas took to their social media accounts to allow the world to share in their happiness with endearing messages. "Happy Anniversary, @MichelleObama," Barack wrote."For 26 years, you've been an extraordinary partner, someone who can always make me laugh, and my favorite person to see the world with." Ever the visionary, Barack played on the concept of seeing the world by posting a picture of his wife's smiling face as she gazes outside an airplane window revealing a breathtaking mountain view.
Michelle responded to the sweet message with one of her own writing, "Thank you @barackobama for 26+ years of love, trust, and respect - for being a man who always lifts up and honors me and our wonderful girls. "Each day I'm with you, I'm reminded of what a treasure you truly are to us all."
Only a few months ago, Michelle revealed that her and Barack's wedding day did not get off to a spectacular start sharing, "Barack woke up on our wedding day in October, 1992 with a nasty head cold. " She went on to write, "Somehow, by the time I met him at the altar, it had miraculously disappeared and we ended up dancing almost all night."
