In 1992, during the wedding ceremony, the same gold band was put again on his ring finger by Michelle Robinson, the future first lady. The couple dated for three years before getting married. They met in 1989 at a Chicago law firm when she worked as an attorney. She was assigned to be an advisor to a summer associate from Harvard, and his name was Barack Obama.
