While promoting her new book The Light We Carry, Michelle Obama said that she couldn’t stand husband and future President Barack Obama for 10 years when their daughters were young and they were building careers.
Speaking to Revolt in early December, she said: “People think I’m being catty for saying this: it’s like, there were 10 years where I couldn’t stand my husband. And guess when it happened? When those kids were little,” the former First Lady said.
“For 10 years, while we’re trying to build our careers and worrying about school and who was doing what and what, I was like, ‘Argh, this isn’t even,’” she added.
“And guess what? Marriage isn’t 50/50, ever. Ever. There are times I’m 70, he’s 30. There are times he’s 60, 40. But guess what? Ten years. We’ve been married 30. I would take 10 bad years over 30 — it’s just how you look at it. People give up — ‘Five years; I can’t take it’.”
