"We get help with our marriage when we need it ..." (Michelle Obama)

The former US First Lady candidly reveals in her new book how relationship therapy has, and continues, to benefit their marriage.


I really like that someone with such a high public profile, and greatly admired as a strong female role model, is opening up about this. I do hope that it will help to destigmatise the process of couples’ therapy and demonstrate to others how useful it can be to maintain the strength in a relationship.

It needn’t be a measure of last resort, but rather a fantastic tool to keep a healthy and open balance in partnership.
