Barack and Michelle celebrate 20 years of marriage

The foundation on which their union is built was crystal clear when Michelle was dishing out relationship advice to young girls in a US magazine interview.

"Cute is good. But cute only lasts for so long, and then it's, Who are you as a person?," she advised.

"Don't look at the bankbook or the title. Look at the heart. Look at the soul.

"When you're dating a man, you should always feel good. You shouldn't be in a relationship with somebody who doesn't make you completely happy and make you feel whole."
