Obama Marriage Problems hit Foreign Press

As President Obama has suffered a giant fall in his popularity, some news outlets are beginning to report that the President may not be so popular with First Lady Michelle Obama as well.

The FLOTUS has taken some time away from the President by remaining in Hawaii.  Obama is reportedly staying that the Hawaiian home of Oprah Winfrey.

The White House spun the extended vacation of the first lady as an early birthday present.  The First Lady turns fifty years old on January 17.  Despite divorce rumors, we have noted that the Obama’s have taken separate vacations  in the past.

According to a poll at 1World Online, 45% of the public thinks that the Obama’s are heading for divorce in 2014.

While we think most of the stories of marital discord between the Obama’s is hype, but now the foreign press has now jumped on the bandwagon.

A LEADING American divorce mediator will visit Washington this week to offer members of Congress advice on ending the “tiresome bickering” between Republicans and Democrats.

If US tabloids are to be believed, she may need to visit the White House first.

Michelle Obama’s extended absence from Washington and a flurry of renewed speculation about the state of the first couple’s marriage are threatening to overshadow her 50th birthday party at the White House on Saturday.

Not for the first time in their 22-year marriage the Obamas are approaching what should be a happy family milestone under a cloud of rampant tabloid innuendo, summed up by a National Enquirer headline: “World exclusive: Obama marriage explodes!”.

The Enquirer has earned a measure of respectability in Washington with its reporting of political scandals – most notably its exposure of the double life of John Edwards, a former senator and once a Democratic presidential contender.

Yet its so-called bombshell Obama report was based on nothing more substantial than the vague allegations of an unnamed “Oval Office insider” who claimed the first couple “are now sleeping in separate White House bedrooms” – tame stuff compared with the adventures of the president’s French counterpart Francois Hollande.

In one sense the report was partly right: Barack Obama returned to Washington from his Christmas break in Hawaii last week while his wife remained in Maui to spend more time with friends, reportedly at a holiday home owned by the media mogul Oprah Winfrey.

Before the Enquirer could detonate another bombshell, a White House spokesman offered a different explanation for Michelle’s solo break: it was a birthday present from her husband.

  1. Since we were high school we argued, got mad at each other,cried, but we never let go off each other hand and will never let go. Our parents got divorced. Mine since I was 2 y/o but do not want to let divorce reflect and limit our child potential to succeed, so that is why my boyfriend and I are forever life companion though we never are married but have been living together.

  2. So folks, stop thinking arguments like that can lead to divorce. In fact they are meant to make marriage more everlasting. Arguments are there because couples have questions and they want to understand each other more.

  3. Not every marriage is happily ever after. Problems and arguments present in every love relationship to get stronger, more understanding toward each other, more forgiving self and partners and not meant to dissolve marital bonds.
