Earlier, we had reported, Michelle opened up on just how much goes into a long-term relationship during an episode of 'The Michelle Obama Podcast' with guest Conan O'Brien. She had said that she always knew she wanted to get married while Barack had been a bit more hesitant as his parents had got divorced and his grandparents had a shaky marriage.
She opened up on the ups and downs of marriage and said there were times when she wanted to push Barack out of the window. "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," Michelle said.
