In today's edition of Obama Relationship Goals, we look back at the first couple's 2011 Oprah Show appearance, where President Barack Obama reminded everyone about the love and respect at the foundation of a solid marriage. During the interview, the president and first lady Michelle Obama sat down to talk about their lives, their relationship and their time in the White House.

After the first lady shared her thoughts on marriage, the president opened up about his appreciation for Michelle, crediting her and their two daughters with keeping him "sane" and "balanced" amid the pressures of the presidency. "I couldn't have done anything that I've done without Michelle," President Obama said. "She is just my rock, and I count on her in so many ways every single day."
