Marrying someone is, undoubtedly, one of the life-changing decisions and we all face some dilemma in deciding whether he or she is ‘the one’ or not. But guess what? Former US President Barack Obama recently doled out a few insightful (and amazing!) relationship tips that might help you make a better decision.
Obama’s former Senior Advisor, Dan Pfeiffer, penned down the book ‘Yes, We (Still) Can’ in which he has mentioned about the conversation he had with him in 2015. Pfeiffer had shared he was moving in with his then girlfriend, and the president gave him the much-needed relationship advice for a successful marriage.
The first question that Obama asked him was, “Is she someone you find interesting?” Before Pfeiffer could think of an answer, Obama explained the logic, “You will spend more time with this person than anyone else for the rest of your life, and there is nothing more important than always wanting to hear what she has to say about things.”
Obama also talked about why is it important to share a sense of humour with your partner. The question might sound frivolous to many but your relationship can turn out to be pretty blissful and smooth when you share your life with someone who has a good sense of humour.
Obama further shared, “I don’t know if you want kids, but if you do, do you think she will be a good mother?” Well, he was surely talking about the bigger picture that not many couples think about. “Life is long,” he exclaimed. “These are things that really matter in the long term.”
Michelle and Barack Obama met in 1989 and have been going strong since then. Be it their personal or professional life, the couple has stood next to each other all the time and has set an example for everyone across the world. Talking about their relationship, Michelle once shared in an interview, “Barack didn’t pledge riches, only a life that would be interesting. On that promise he delivered.” Relationship goals, anyone?
