Barack and Michelle Obama have set an amazing example of a strong relationship based on unconditional love, support, and respect. How did they manage to do it? Former President gave away that valuable information.
His communications director, Dan Pfeiffer, was having a conversation with Obama just before the latter was leaving the White House. They spoke of future plans and got to talk about relationships, as Pfeiffer mentioned moving in with his girlfriend, Howli Ledbetter.
Obama decided to teach Dan a lesson about how to find out whether "she" is "the one". Later, Pfeiffer put it all in his book “Yes, We (Still) Can”.
According to the former president, you should ask yourself three important questions. The first one is: “Is she someone you find interesting?”
When two people tie the knot, they become inseparable, and your second half is definitely a person you are going to spend most of your time with. Obama adds: “There is nothing more important than always wanting to hear what she has to say about things.”
“Does she make you laugh?” That is the second important question. Well, laughter is the best medicine, and it prolongs life. This is vital to be able to have a fun time together.
The third question concerns future plans. “Do you think she will be a good mom?” Obama mentioned:
Life is long. These are the things that really matter over the long term.”
When Pfeiffer answered in the affirmative to all three questions, Obama concluded that he was a lucky man to find his one and only.
Dan Pfeiffer and Howli Ledbetter got married the following year, in October 2016.
The former president has always been proud of building relationships with the people working in his administration. Probably, for a man who is happily married, it is a blessing to see others unite with their second halves!
Those were some valuable tips from Obama and, considering his own experience and long years of successful marriage, he knows what he is talking about.
