Research shows that marrying the right person, and especially someone who is supportive of your career, has the power to significantly boost your happiness, psychological well-being and both personal and professional growth. Former President Barack Obama agrees to the point where he offered relationship tips to help staffers know when they’ve found their soulmates.
Talk about marriage goals, Barack and Michelle Obama‘s relationship is enduring, and the dad-of-2 has some personal advice for anyone else who wants to follow in their footsteps.
How do you know if the partner you’ve picked is the perfect companion for a lifelong union? Well, if you look at your spouse the way Barack looks at Michelle, there’s a good chance that you’re in the right relationship.
Obama’s former communications director Dan Pfeiffer describes receiving some excellent advice from the then-president in his new book, Yes We (Still) Can.
Pfeiffer, now the co-host of Pod Save America, wrote that on his last day at the White House back in 2015, he was discussing his future plans to Obama and let it slip that he planned to move in with his then-girlfriend, Howli Ledbetter, who is now his wife.
