Barack and Michelle Obama tied the knot in 1992
The former U.S. president and former First Lady tied the knot back in 1992.
Sasha is studying at the University of Michigan, while her older sister, Malia, is studying at Harvard University.
Michelle and Barack met in 1989 while they both worked at Sidley Austin, a law firm in Chicago. Michelle, who was then 25 years old, recently graduated from Harvard Law School.
Michelle recalled in an interview with ABC News that Barack joined Sidley Austin about a year after she started there and she was assigned to show the new guy the ropes.
She refused the first time he asked her out but after some hesitation she accepted.
Both Michelle and Barack have admitted on multiple occasions that they faced major marital struggles before and during their time in the White House and that they almost split.
But their marriage has survived challenging times and they have renewed their commitment to each other since leaving the White House.
