The Obamas Just Celebrated Their 28th Wedding Anniversary With The Perfect Message

"Every day with Michelle makes me a better husband, a better father, and a better human."

If you're anything like me, you view Barack and Michelle Obama as the definition of #relationshipgoals.

They make each other laugh, are super supportive, and push each other to become the best version of themselves.

Well, now our favorite couple is getting even cooler — if that's humanly possible.

Yesterday, Michelle posted a cute pic of them on Instagram to commemorate their anniversary. In the caption she wrote, "28 years with this one. I love @BarackObama for his smile, his character, and his compassion. So grateful to have him as a partner through everything life throws at us."

Then the former first lady asked for a special anniversary gift: "[T]his year, we have a request for you — pick one person in your life who might not vote and make sure they do. Tell us about it in the comments! That’s an anniversary message of the best kind."

The former president shared a similar heartwarming post. "Even with everything going on, I wanted to take a moment to say happy anniversary to the love of my life. Every day with @MichelleObama makes me a better husband, a better father, and a better human."

"This year," Barack continued, "while we appreciate all your well-wishes, what we’d really love is for each of you to reach out to one person in your life who might not vote. Help them get registered. Help them make a plan to cast their ballot. Send them to to get started."
