It’s no secret that Michelle Obama is one of the most influential women of this generation and so any wisdom that comes from her is usually worth listening to.
In a keynote conversation with famous US news anchor Gayle King, Michelle shared some sound relationship advice that many should hear.
"Marriage is a choice you make every day,” she said. "You don’t do it because it’s easy. You do it because you believe in it. You believe in the other person.
"And ladies and gentleman, that’s why it’s so important to marry somebody that you respect," Michelle continued.
"It’s important to marry somebody who is your equal, and to marry somebody and to be with somebody who wants you to win as much as you want them to win."
The former First Lady then compared marriage to playing a game together - you both have to be in it to win it.
"My husband is my teammate. If we are going to win this game together, he has to be strong and he has to be okay with me being strong.
"I do not want a weak player on my team, nor does he. But sometimes, we accept weak in one another because it feels easy. And be cautious of the man or woman who wants just the easy person."
