23 romantic photos of Michelle and Barack Obama on their 23rd anniversary

Who can resist romance between the commander-in-chief and the First Lady?

Married on October 3, 1992, Barack and Michelle Obama have captured our hearts with their love for one another over almost seven years in the White House — and on the campaign trail even before that.

Obama mentions his wife in almost every speech he gives. He often seems unable to resist showering his wife with PDA, even when the cameras are rolling.

On their 23rd wedding anniversary, we’ve collected a few of our favourite photos of America’s first couple’s most romantic moments — from their first days in the White House to their everyday moments inside it.
