In a recent interview with People Magazine, Michelle Obama revealed that her seemingly perfect marriage has had its fair share of ups and downs, on to the point of herself and former president Barack Obama having to visit a marriage counselor, which she discussed in her forthcoming book “Becoming.”
“There are times you want to leave,” she tells People.
Because we’re role models, it’s important for us to be honest and say, if you’re in a marriage and there are times you want to leave, that’s normal — because I felt that way.
My mother would talk about leaving my father in the spring, when she’d do spring cleaning. There were definitely times when I wished things were different, but I don’t think I ever thought, “I’m just checking out of this.”
The former first lady has been revealing tidbits about her life as the launch of her memoir “Becoming” draws near.
