Barack Obama Shares The Three Questions You Should Ask Yourself About Your Partner Before Marriage


Despite the stress of public life, eight years spent in the White House, and 26 years of marriage, whenever Barack and Michelle Obama are photographed together they still look like a pair of high school sweethearts.

According to President Obama, building that type of successful relationship boils down to three questions.

In his new book Yes We Still Can, former Obama communications director Dan Pfeiffer shares the advice the President gave him after hearing he was moving in with his partner Howli.

There are three questions a person needs to ask themselves to know if they've found the right partner.

1. Are they someone you find interesting?

At first Pfeiffer was confused by this question but the President went on to explain.

"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."

2. Do they make you laugh?

3. Will they make a good parent?

To this the President added;

"I don't know if you want kids, but if you do, do you think she will be a good mom? Life is long. These are the things that really matter over the long term."

Pfeiffer than told the President about his partner.

"Howli is incredibly interesting, funnier than I am, and will be a phenomenal mom."

Obama replied "Sounds like she's the one. Lucky you."

There's an endless amount of good and bad relationship advice out there, but the President seems to have boiled it down to what really matters.

And some couldn't help but wonder what the current President might have to say on the subject.

As heartwarming as Pfeiffer's story was, the brief reminder of our former President made many nostalgic for better days.

Although he may no longer be our President it feels like Obama is still looking out for us.
