Barack Obama's Romantic Anniversary Post For Michelle Is PDA At Its Finest

Barack Obama is in love, and he doesn't care who knows it.

Monday marks the 24th wedding anniversary of Michelle and Barack Obama. They were married on October 3, 1992.

To commemorate the occasion, the president posted a romantic photo of Michelle and himself with the caption,

Dancing through 24 years. Happy Anniversary.

The photo, which is one of many unabashed and undeniably adorable examples of PDA from the Obamas, seems to be from the 2009 Nobel Banquet in Oslo, Norway.

The president also posted about his anniversary with the first lady on Twitter.

You don't have to agree with all of their politics to admire how genuine, supportive and down-to-earth Michelle and Barack's relationship is.

They epitomize couple goals.

Two terms in the White House can be tough on anyone, but it's never seemed to impact the Obamas' relationship.

They've always remained supportive.

During an interview back in 1996, just a few years after they got married, President Obama eluded to what has likely helped them keep this love and support alive during his tenure.

He said,

What sustains our relationship is I'm extremely happy with her, and part of it has to do with the fact that she is at once completely familiar to me, so that I can be myself and she knows me very well and I trust her completely, but at the same time she is also a complete mystery to me in some ways. […]

It's that tension between familiarity and mystery that makes for something strong, because, even as you build a life of trust and comfort and mutual support, you retain some sense of surprise or wonder about the other person.

There you have it, folks. According to the president, the secret to a lasting relationship is recognizing and respecting your partner's individuality, which helps you find that balance between “familiarity and mystery.”

It appears President Obama has always been a hopeless romantic.
