Have you ever wondered about the marriage secrets to Barack and Michelle Obama? The secrets have been revealed.
In a new book by former White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer, Yes, We (Still) Can, the author shares a revealing conversation he had with his then-boss on his last day on the job in 2015.
“So are you guys moving together? This is the one, huh,” Pfeiffer recounted Obama as asking him, per an excerpt shared on Twitter and on the Huffington Post.
Obama then quickly offered some fatherly wisdom, “Here’s the advice I give everyone about marriage — is she someone you find interesting?” Pfeiffer says Obama asked him.
Pfeiffer admits the question puzzled him at first, but Obama then clarified: “You will spend more time with this person than anyone else for the rest of your life, and there is nothing more important than always wanting to hear what she has to say about things.”
Question number two is a little more self-explanatory: “Does she make you laugh?”
And finally, Pfeiffer writes that Obama told him “I don’t know if you want kids, but if you do, do you think she will be a good mom?”
Fortunately for Pfeiffer, he was able to answer yes to all those questions, and the president later attended his wedding — one of four weddings the former president attended of couples who met through him and his work.
