Barack And Michelle Obama Celebrates Their 30th Wedding Anniversary

Former US president, Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama are celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary today, October 3.

The 61-year-old 44th President of the United States posted heartwarming memories of him and his wife on Instagram, including a picture of himself laying his head on Michelle’s shoulder while they were at the beach, a picture of their wedding in black and white, and a picture of their names written in a heart in the sand.

Captioning the post, he wrote: “Miche, After 30 years, I’m not sure why you look exactly the same and I don’t. I do know that I won the lottery that day—that I couldn’t have asked for a better life partner. Happy anniversary, sweetheart!”

In a Twitter post, Mrs. Obama, 58, also celebrated their anniversary saying: “Happy anniversary to the man I love! These last 30 years have been an adventure, and I’m grateful to have you by my side. Here’s to a lifetime together. I love you @BarackObama.”

She also posted side-by-side images of them on their wedding day and at the beach.

The two first met during a summer internship at a law firm, when Barack was given Michelle as his mentor. After dating for three years, the Obamas got married in 1992.

In his 2020 memoir, A Promised Land, the former president wrote of their wonderful wedding day, which was held in Chicago’s South Side.

He said, “After several years of dating, Michelle and I were married at Trinity United Church of Christ on October 3, 1992, with more than three hundred of our friends, colleagues, and family members crammed happily into the pews.”

Today's Quote

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
