Today is the day that Barack H. Obama got married in 1992 to Michelle LaVaughn Robinson in Chicago. It happened one month before Bill Clinton was elected president of the United States.
At the time the future president was working as a lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School and true to his community organizer roots worked on a voter registration drive. His wife was an attorney working in Chicago city government as an assistant to the mayor of Chicago.
I doubt at the time they or their wedding guests thought in their wildest dreams the happy couple would be celebrating future wedding anniversaries as the POTUS and FLOTUS, and having 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue as their street address, but that’s exactly what has happened since 2009.
Happy 19th anniversary to the President and First Lady. May you be celebrating your 20th through 24th wedding anniversaries in the White House, and may you have many more.
