"Last week on the #MichelleObamaPodcast, Conan and I reflected on our marriages. This relationship can be one of the most foundational pieces of our identities – bringing us so much joy, meaning and support every single day," she wrote.

"But one thing is for sure: it also takes a lot of work; a lot of honesty with ourselves and our partners. That's one thing I've learned. I'd love to hear some of the things you've learned about marriage and about yourself. Let me know in the comments."

The image showed Michelle and Barack at their reception, with what seems to be wedding cake on their noses.

They married on October 3 1992 at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. Michelle's brother walked her down the aisle, and after the vows, their reception was held at the South Shore Cultural Center.

Speaking on her podcast, she joked, "There were times that I wanted to push Barack out of the window. And I say that because it's like, you've got to know the feelings will be intense. But that doesn't mean you quit. And these periods can last a long time. They can last years.

"Young couples, they face these challenges and they're ready to give up because they think they're broken. And I just want to say, look, if that breaks a marriage, then Barack and I have been broken off and on, throughout our marriage, but we have a very strong marriage.

"And if I had given up on it, if I had walked away from it, in those tough times, then I would've missed all the beauty that was there as well."
