Michelle and Barack met when they were among the few African Americans at their law firm, Sidley Austin LLP, and she was assigned to mentor him while he was a summer associate. Their relationship started with a business lunch and then a community organization meeting where he first impressed her.
Before meeting Obama, Michelle had told her mother she would focus solely on her career. The couple’s first date was to the Spike Lee movie Do the Right Thing. Barack has opined that the two had an “opposites attract” scenario in their interest for each other initially since Michelle had stability through her two-parent home while he was “adventurous”. They married in October 1992, and have two daughters, Malia Ann (born 1998) and Natasha (known as Sasha, born 2001).
