On Monday night, Michelle Obama delivered an unforgettable speech at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, in which she talked at length about being the first black First Lady in "a house that was built by slaves."

The President later tweeted a response to his wife's DNC speech, prompting an eruption of feels from people on Twitter who gush over the couple:

Throughout President Obama's political career, the FLOTUS's humor, strength and poise have redefined the role of a politician's wife — and together, the Obamas have made an unstoppable team. Here are a few more moments when they raised the bar for #RelationshipGoals.

In the feature, which was later published by The New Yorker, Obama said of his wife: "Michelle is a tremendously strong person, and has a very strong sense of herself and who she is and where she comes from ... even as you build a life of trust and comfort and mutual support, you retain some sense of surprise or wonder about the other person."

In their time at the White House, the Obamas' marriage showed us all what it's like when two independent leaders join forces, start a family and keep it real. Come November, we're definitely going to miss them.
