Since her podcast launched, Michelle Obama has been sharing food for thoughts, giving an inside look into her private life, and sometimes raising eyebrows with some of the revelations.
Recently, the former first lady sat down for an intimate conversation about her complex relationship with former President Barack Obama.
And during the exchange, some say that Michelle might have gone too far, while others claim she struck a chord because they feel the same way.
On one of the most recent episodes of her The Michelle Obama Podcast, the famous Democrat confessed to almost committing a crime of passion.
Michelle, who has been married to Barack for 28 years, said she wanted to “push Barack out of the window.”
She went on to say that even if she had thoughts of harming her spouse several times through their romance, she never gave up on the marriage.
The author shared with her listeners: “There were times that I wanted to push Barack out of the window. And I say that because it’s like, you’ve got to know the feelings will be intense. But that doesn’t mean you quit. And these periods can last a long time. They can last years.”
She went on to give the following advice when searching for a partner: “You want LeBron [James]. You don’t want the guy, third row on the bench, who didn’t make the team, but we often don’t think about that. What you’re supposed to say is, ‘I have married LeBron. My version of LeBron.'”
The Becoming author also revealed why it is important to date a person for a certain period: “There’s no magic way to make that happen except getting the basics of finding somebody, being honest about wanting to be with them, to date them seriously, to plan on making a commitment, to disappoint/pain it goes and then making it happen.”
The mother of two concluded by: “You can’t Tinder your way into a long-term relationship.”
People who have been married for a long time appear to agree with the jaw-dropping comments made by Michelle.
One backer of Michelle’s theory said this: “Marriage works if you’re both working to build the same vision. otherwise, it might not be that either one of you is ‘wrong,’ but two people building from different plans will end in disappointment/pain / realizing you forgot to build the foundation, etc..”
This person had the following reaction: “I always say that marriage is loving the other person so much you would die for them while at the same time frequently wanting to smother them with a pillow.”
A married woman made this rather blunt confession: “I’ve learned we need regular and consistent pressure valve releases like an instant pot to avoid blowups.”
For some, this is a very interesting view of marriage and love.
