Barack met Michelle Robinson (Obama) in June 1989 while he was employed as a summer associate and was married to her on October 18, 1992.

In Barack Obama's Political life, he was elected President of the United States the 1st time in 2008 and the 2nd time in 2012 if he was able to be elected again and he won the election he would be President in 2016, but he can't because after FDR was President they had made a rule Presidents can only be president for a 2 4 year term so they can only be president for 8 years.
