Michelle Obama Gives Advice on Love & Marriage, Admitting She Wanted To Push Husband Barack Out a Window On Some Occasions

Michelle Obama is opening up about her marriage with Barack Obama on the latest episode of her podcast, featuring guest Conan O’Brien.

The former First Lady spoke to Conan on the importance of picking partners carefully when it comes to love and emphasized that there have been times in her own marriage that she’s wanted to push Barack out the window on occasions when they have had disagreements.

“People aren’t perfect. Marriage is hard. It’s a struggle for everyone. But, the question you have to ask is do you want to spend this life with somebody? Do you want to build something with someone? And there’s no magic way to make that happen,” she stated.

Michelle went on, encouraging people looking for love to master “the basics of finding somebody” who is right for you which includes “being honest about wanting to be with them, to date them seriously, to plan on making a commitment to date them, seeing where it goes, and then making it happen.”

“There’s work and practice that goes into [deciding,] ‘I’m going to get off the apps, and I’m going to actually ask this girl out, and I’m going to take her out for a few months. I’m going to invest in this other person,’” Michelle says “Because that’s what dating is. You can’t Tinder your way into a long-term relationship.”

“There were times that I wanted to push Barack out of the window. And I say that because it’s like, you’ve got to know the feelings will be intense. But that doesn’t mean you quit, and these periods can last a long time. They can last years.”

Just recently, Michelle earned a lot of praise for her speech at the DNC. See the reactions here…
