Presidential love stories, from the Jacksons to the Obamas

How They Met: In the summer of 1989, Barack Obama took an internship at the Sidley Austin law firm in Chicago, where he met recent Harvard law grad Michelle Robinson. No-nonsense Michelle, who was all business and frowned on interoffice dating, thought the two would be "good friends," but Barack had other ideas. He finally convinced Michelle to go on a date later that summer. The two spent the day together, visiting the Chicago art institute and then having a drink on the 99th floor of the John Hancock building, and the rest is history. The Wedding: Oct. 3, 1992, Trinity United Church of Christ, Chicago. The pair was married by Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., and Michelle's brother, Craig, walked her down the aisle. Barack's half-brother Malik was his best man. The couple chose "You and I" by Stevie Wonder as their song. The Honeymoon: Hawaii
