Happy Anniversary Barack and Michelle!

By Kelly Thomas - Posted on 04 October 2009

From MSNBC. Saturday, October 3rd marked 17 years of marriage for the happy first couple. That is quite a feat in this day and age (especially in the challenging arena of politics) so I thought it deserved a huge standing ovation from RFO! Isn't it amazing to see such genuine warmth, love and attraction between our president and the lovely first lady? What a beautiful couple and first family we have to admire!

President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama leave the Blue Duck Tavern in the West End area of Washington on Saturday. They were celebrating their 17th anniversary.

Can anyone out there in RFO land beat 17 years? Not me-I just celebrated 13 years in August-but I sure have every intention of reaching and surpassing the 17 year mark (with the grace of God) since I've been blessed with a wonderful husband and great kids to remind me of that blessing.

I thought we'd have some fun by offering our best marriage advice.

Here's mine:

A sense of humor will add many years on to any marriage! Don't enter the marriage without it!

Congrats to the First Couple!

Heh, I'm younger and have been married longer, and yet I'm not a celebrity nor a politician so their job has been even more difficult.

So kudos to the Family Values president! 

"If all mankind minus one were of one opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind."  ~John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1859
