A story with a moral
In truth, this story reflects the phrase that “behind a man there is always a great woman.” In fact, although it is unknown if the story is real, the truth is that it has been circulating through the years with several famous marriages as protagonists. The idea is to make it clear that the strength and support of a woman are fundamental pillars in a man’s life.
In the case of the Obama couple, loved and acclaimed worldwide, they have been able to demonstrate with acts and small actions that the love they have goes beyond the simple photographic moment.

However, that happiness was about to be cut short
A new biography about Barack Obama, called ” Rising Star “, reveals controversial and very personal details of the life of the former president. Its author, David Garrow, interviewed one of Barack Obama’s first girlfriends, when they were going through their university stage in Chicago. Sheila Miyoshi Jager, is a professor at an Ohio University and gave her testimony to tell details of that courtship.
They were about to get married
According to what was reported in the newspaper La Vanguardia, Obama had asked Sheila to marry him on two occasions. But since her mother considered her too young, at just 23 years old, she did not have the approval of her family and rejected the request. Is that woman wondering what her life would be like today if she had accepted Barack’s marriage request?

According to what Sheila said, she considered that Barack Obama was too ambitious a man for politics, and she did not agree with that facet, so after a while the relationship ended. In fact, the author of the book, who also won a Pullitzer Prize for the biography of Martin Luther King Jr, describes the young Obama as a person with great political ambitions. He told her that, from an early age, his true intention was to become president of the United States.
Not all couples can go hand in hand when it comes to goals and objectives. This was the case with this couple who were interrupted due to the divergence of their ambitions, among other things. Fate had another chapter in his life in store for Obama.
Michelle comes into his life
What if Barck married Sheila? Would he have become President of the United States and achieved great popularity? We do not know, because fate weaves its networks so that everything fits perfectly. But without a doubt, Michelle’s influence in Barack’s life was an unavoidable pillar for him to establish himself as President.
The strength of a woman and our role as wives
It is not about having a secondary role in married life and only pushing our men to achieve success, but about providing our support to those we love, always trying to give our opinion, knowing that the success of one of the two is always the success of both. The Michelle Obama case is a great example to consider. She, a professional and decisive woman, never neglected her personal tasks, her activities and her charitable work. Supporting her husband in every way and setting a good example for her family were her priorities.
Women move the world. We are the ones who raise the human beings of the future, the ones who imprint the sensitive character in our children and those who, with the great help of our men, generate great ideas. And you, what do you think of this great story?
