Just as any relationship faces challenges. Michelle and Barack Obama’s relationship is not immune.
Despite them having been the first family of The United States, they too faced some challenges in their relationship.
According to what michelle wrote in ger memoir becoming, she got to a point where she needed counseling in order to stay put. She dragged Barack along and they sought the services of a marriage counselor in order to help them with their relationship.
After the release of her memoir, Becoming, Michelle said that her husband’s tardiness was an issue to the relationship. In the memoir she also states that Barack was late on the forst day of work to his first job.
He would call Michelle to inform him he was on his way home but it would take hours for him to get home.
At the beginning, when Malia and Sasha were little, Michelle had to make them wait for their dad before they went to bed. When Barack repeatedly came late she changed the tactics. The kids had to go to bed by a certain time and it was now up to Barack to decide. If he wanted to see them before they go to bed he had to be home before bedtime or miss seeing them.
