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 you boundless promise. Lead by example with hope; never fear.”

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.


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.


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.


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.


Husbands: The reason why other women look attractive is because someone is taking good care of them. 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.


A successful marriage doesn’t require a big house, a prefect 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.


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


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.


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.

  1. These points are very relevant to me and the divorce of a woman I loved for who she was. The problem was our different maturity levels. She was extremely insecure and didn't want or allow ourselves to have activities outside our immediate family. I think her jealousy was a result of her childhood and her past marriage. There was also the age difference. I was 45 and she was 29 when we met. The physical and spiritual continued as we dated. When we decided to live together with her 2 children and mother under the same room the communication and compromise ended. I played a part, but I honered my marriage commitment. until we had a ugly fight and she threw me out of her house where I became homeless for 3 weeks. A bitter divorce followed in which I believe she tried to punish me by putting me through extreme agony. I consulted ministers, friends, and family, and they agreed she needed to work on herself before she moved forward with her life. I concentrated on taking care of myself and I am a stronger person because of this chapter of my life and now know to really know a woman and her true motives before I form a long relationship with a woman I might choose to marry again.

  2. This article is spot on and it taught me some things that I need to work on.

  3. Maybe this is just me, but it kind of feels like this is a complaining session against her husband. She makes good points: Marriage is a partnership. If a man cannot respect his wife and her wishes, cannot do everything in his power to help her reach her dreams, then he is not doing his job as a husband. That said, Women have the exact same duty. Equal in every way. Women lust after other men and make their husbands feel unwanted, unloved, and disrespected as well. Equality, Trust, and Unconditional love are the foundation of any lasting and healthy marriage. Anger has no place in a marriage, Neither do Grudges, pettiness or triumphalism. Both partners have a duty to martyr themselves for each other. To build each other up. To Forgive. To love.
