Truths About Marriage Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama is nothing short of iconic and is regarded as one of the most influential and well-respected figures of the 21st century. 

She is without a doubt one of the greatest women that the world has seen. You look up to Michelle Obama and you see an epitome of power, poise, kindness, and glamor. The former First Lady of the USA, in the 8-years of her being in power, didn’t leave any opportunity to use her voice and stature to spread the peace, love, and wisdom.

8 Truths About Marriage by Michelle Obama That Every Couple Should Know

And, even as she moves on from the duty of serving as the FLOTUS, she doesn’t fail to remind the young Americans that the power is still in their own hands, “I want our young people to know that they matter, that they belong. So don’t be afraid. Be focused. Be determined. Be hopeful. Be empowered. Empower yourself with a good education. Then get out there and use that education to build a country worthy of your boundless promise. Lead by example with hope; never fear.”

8 Marriage Tips By Michelle Obama

8 Truths About Marriage by Michelle Obama That Every Couple Should Know

It’s just plain curiosity to wonder how Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama works outside the position of power; in her marriage and as a mother.

What makes her and her marriage and motherhood stand out, can be easily seen through the following lessons that she once shared reminding us that she’s as normal as us.

1. Having a third person in your marriage is disrespectful.

There is nothing that threatens the security of a wife than the thought of another woman competing for the attention and affection of her husband. Nothing is more painful. Nothing is more disrespecting. Nothing is more insulting. Nothing is more belittling and degrading.

2. Always be a team. 

Marriage flourishes when the couple works together as a team; when both husband and wife decide that winning together is more important than keeping score. Good marriages don’t just happen. They are a product of hard work.

3. Your children look up to you. 

Your children are watching you and forming lasting opinions on love, commitment, and marriage based on what they see in you. Give them hope. Make them look forward to marriage.

4. Make your wife feel special. 

Husbands: The reason why other women look attractive is that someone is taking good care of them. The grass is always green where it is watered. Instead of drooling over the green grass on the other side of the fence, work on yours and water it regularly. Any man can admire a beautiful woman, but it takes a true gentleman to make his woman admirable and beautiful.

5. Marriage is built on values, not things. 

A successful marriage doesn’t require a big house, a perfect spouse, a million dollars, or an expensive car. You can have all the above and still have a miserable marriage. A successful marriage requires honesty, undying commitment, and selfless love at the center of it all.

6. Choose friends wisely. 

The people you surround yourself with have a lot of influence on your marriage. Friends can build or break your marriage; choose them wisely.

7. Both spouses should put in effort into their marriage. 

One spouse cannot build a marriage alone when the other spouse is committed to destroying it. Marriage works when both husband and wife work together as a team to build their marriage.

8. Never take your spouse for granted. 

Don’t take your spouse for granted. Don’t take advantage of your spouse’s meekness and goodness. Don’t mistake your spouse’s loyalty for desperation. Don’t misuse or abuse your spouse’s trust. You may end up regretting after losing someone that meant so much to you.

Marriage is not always a bed of roses, and if you want a successful marriage, you will have to work hard at it. Every day. Without enough effort, don’t expect to have a happy and fulfilling marriage, just like Michelle Obama points out.
