Among the topics up for discussion was also that of their long and happy marriage, and what their secret for it is.

“We've been married now twenty years, and like every marriage you have your ups and you have your downs, but if you work through the tough times the respect and love that you feel deepens,” the President explained.

Humor is also an important factor, Mrs. Obama chimed in. Major awww moment.
