Taking inspiration about love

Michelle Obama, the former first lady, recently posted a series of pictures with former POTUS Barack Obama and shared her marriage experience, which inspired Miller.

“Caption…so well said,” Miller added “Worth a read.” It appears that she agreed with the former first lady’s post. Miller and Slater have been together for 15 years and their relationship is still going strong. She agrees with the post that Michelle Obama made and wanted her followers to take a look at it. 

Michelle made a lot of points about marriage. She noted that marriages have a lot of discord in them but also have love. She has also encouraged people to be prepared, as marriage will be a difficult option in your relationship. Handling the difficulty is what makes it true love, as per the former first lady.

Miller once revealed that the reason she fell for the legendary surfer was because of his dedication to the sport. “The other day (and this entire contest) has once again left me in awe of him. I’m so beyond proud of what he has accomplished and the focus, hard work, and truly a lifetime of dedication to the sport. We’ve finally had a few days to decompress and process how special it was,” Miller said after Slater’s win in Hawaii this year.
