Michelle Obama Tells Oprah: I Don't Believe In Love At First Sight! Do You Agree? Vote!

Michelle tied the knot with President Barack Obama 18 years ago and the First Lady says you need more than love to make your marriage survive — and raise kids!

Michelle Obama, 47, wants you to know that marriage is a “hard road.” The First Lady appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show on May 2 for an hour-long special and she told viewers that getting married isn’t a fairy tale.“It has to be a true partnership and you have to really like and respect the person you are married to,” she says with President Obama sitting next to her. “It is a hard road. Don’t expect it to be easy. Melding two lives, and trying to raise others, and doing it forever — I mean, that’s a recipe for disaster.”

Michelle, who has two daughters, Sasha and Malia, with the president, says she doesn’t believe that love is enough of a reason to wed.

“There are highs and lows. But in the end you have to be able to look him in the eye and say, ‘I like you!’ I stopped believing in love at first sight. You go through that wonderful love stage, but when it gets hard you need a little bit more.”

I’m not sure who’s doing the calling: is it the US media; the UK; the rest of the world; US bclkas; Africans; ? What makes Obama black’ is partly a pervasive labelling that isn’t about skin tone or ancestry, but about being slightly different to every president so far. But it is also about signalling to the wider population that it’s now okay to be slightly different. IN that regard, black’ could equally be Catholic, Mormon, female, Hispanic, .
