Giving Love Another Try: A Rundown of Our Favorite Celebrity Romances

Barack Obama

Unless you have been living somewhere remote, then you would know who Barack Obama is. The first black president of the United States of American has had one woman by his side since taking office, but the lawyer turned POTUS almost married a different lady. It’s kind of hard to imagine Mr. Obama with someone else, but before marrying his wife, he was a young man in love with a free-spirited New Yorker named Genevieve Cook.

The two got into a brief relationship in the 80s and even moved in together at some point. However, it didn’t seem like fate was on their side. After failing at a few more connections, Mr. Obama pursued the young Michelle Robinson after meeting her at a law firm in Chicago. According to sources, the would-be, Mrs. Obama, initially declined his date invitation. After some time, however, Michelle finally gave in, and the couple married in 1992. From that point on, Michelle and Barack had seen each other’s highest highs and lowest lows together.
