Michelle Obama – We Went For Marriage Counselling to “Fix” Obama

In her recently published memoir “Becoming”, the former First Lady claims that her marriage with the 44th President of the United States wasn’t always smooth sailing.

Scroll through layers of the photos of the couple which are available on the Internet, and you couldn’t help but think that the Obamas always had a brilliant relationship.

They enjoy each other’s company, challenge each other to become better and create space for family time; all the ingredients for a happy marriage life.

However, in her recently released memoir, Michelle Obama tells everyone that her relationship with Barrack wasn’t always smooth sailing.

The problems started when the couple had young kids.

While Barrack was a busy politician constantly travelling between Washington and Springfield, Michelle was a burgeoning lawyer who was feeling way too weighed down by her daily responsibilities.

Michelle learned in that period that what attracts you to your partner at the start often becomes the thing, especially in the long run, that drives you bananas.

While she was the box-checker type who thought everything should be in neat and tidy order, Barrack was her polar opposite – always swerving from one task to the other.

Understandably, then, both of them realized that to make their marriage long-lasting, they need to get marriage counselling to let Barrack see what he was doing wrong.

Surprisingly for Michelle, she discovered that it wasn’t what Barrack was doing which was driving him nuts. Instead, to make herself happy, she needed to make herself happy. That means that nobody but herself was responsible for her happiness, or the other way around.

In a sense, that realization which Michelle got that day – that only we are responsible for our happiness – is what is missing in modern day couples.

We tend to go into a marriage thinking the other person will complete us. That there is something missing in us. That we will share everything to have a happy-go-lucky life.

However, when reality sets in, we know that living with another person isn’t as easy – or as fun – as you might think.

That is where therapy helps us. Apart from identifying what we need, therapy tells us what the needs of our partner are, and how could both of us communicate better with each other. You get to know whether you can offer what the other person is asking, and whether they can offer what you want.

Only when this realization sets in – says Michelle Obama – that marriage becomes truly successful and long-lasting.

Michelle Obama and Tina Knowles Lawson, America’s moms, dancing at Jay-Z & Beyonce’s Concert

The past weekend was HUGE for France: First, the France football team won the 2018 World Cup; Second, only a few hours after the winning- Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s started the Run II tour in Paris.

In a video posted by @BeyLegion, one of Beyoncés fan account, The former First Lady was there with both daughters, Sasha and Malia, and it doesn’t look like America’s moms were embarrassed them too much with their dance moves, they both seen had their own personal chairs behind them and busting a move right up front at the foot of the stage while Jay-Z sang, “On to the Next One.” Don’t worry about their chairs, they left it behind them- just in case they wanted to take a rest (Tina made some use of).

Barak Obama missed a great show because he’s in Kenya.

Obamas Sign Netflix Production Deal

The multi-year production deal which Michelle and Barrack Obama have signed with Netflix will see them working both in front and off the camera.

Former US President Barack Obama announced Monday a multi-year pact which he and the former first lady, Michelle Obama has signed with Netflix. The deal will see both of them producing films and television shows for the streaming giant.

Although not as big as his Presidency days, the deal would give Mr. Obama an International audience reaching millions. The couple has named their company ‘’Higher Ground Productions’’, Netflix announced on Monday.

The former President has vowed to keep politics out of the new deal and has told his associates that he won’t use this platform to start a public campaign against Donald Trump, nor does he intend to fight the conservative voices in the media like Fox News.

Instead, as Netflix told during their press release, the Obamas intend to produce “scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries and features” which highlight the themes and issues which the former President faced during his eight years in the Oval Office.

A source told CNN that while the Obamas will sometime be on camera as hosts, in other cases they will remain behind the scenes as producers. While the financial terms were not disclosed, it won’t be faulty to assume that a lucrative pay package will be on offer as the Obamas will be giving Netflix valuable content to share with its 125 million members.

“One of the simple joys of our time in public service was getting to meet so many fascinating people from all walks of life, and to help them share their experiences with a wider audience,” Mr. Obama said in the statement.

“That’s why Michelle and I are so excited to partner with Netflix — we hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world.”

Since leaving the Oval Office, Mr. Obama has remained extremely low-key and said little about the efforts President Trump is taking to discredit his predecessor’s legacy.

Instead, the former President believes that if he fights back, he would become a convenient political target for Mr. Trump. Consequently, there is little chance that Trump would use the platform provided by the Netflix deal to discredit Mr. Trump’s presidency.
