Michelle Obama said in an exclusive interview with People. According to her, they have dinners alone and chunks of time where it is just the two of them.
No kids, no publicity, no nothing. Just us and our dreams.
For them, life is back to how it was at first. The former first lady also reminisced on their recent getaway to Palm Springs without their children which according to her, marked the first time it a long time it was just the two of them.
“And it was good,” she said. “We swam, we sat, and he wrote because he’s still writing his book. So he’s a little resentful,” she added with a laugh.
Mrs. Obama also spoke about troubled times in their recent marital bliss. Adding that at one point, they sought help from a marriage counselor.
She was quoted by People saying,
