Meet The Powerful Lady Who Rejected Obama’s Marriage Proposal Before Meeting Mitchell


When Barack Obama was in his early twenties, he worked as a neighborhood organizer in Chicago. In his spare time, he also tried his hand at writing fiction. During the time that he was residing in the Netherlands, he became good friends with Sheila Miyoshi Jager, a stunning woman who is of Dutch and Japanese descent. In my head, there was no question that they were destined to spend their lives together. Despite the fact that they were dating at the time that Obama was working as a community organizer, he confided in Jager about his goals of running for president of the United States of America.



In the winter of 1986, Barack Obama paid a visit to the parents of Jager’s girlfriend and begged them to give him their daughter in marriage. Ironically, Jager’s parents were against the union because they believed their daughter was too young to get married and they were concerned about Obama’s potential for success in his professional life. They were both in their early twenties at the time; Obama was 25 and she was 23. Despite the fact that Obama was grieved by the loss of Jager, he did not cut off their link.

In 1988, Obama decided to further his education by enrolling in the Harvard Law School. During his time there, he made a second proposal to Jager, but this time it was unsuccessful. According to her interpretation, the motivation behind his suggestion was “a feeling of despair about their imminent separation, rather than any actual conviction in their future.”

Barack Obama, who was 28 years old at the time, met Michelle Robinson, who was 25 years old at the time, while they were both students at Harvard. The job of serving as Barack Obama’s guide had been delegated to Michelle. Robinson made her decision to go on a date with the man who would one day become President of the United States without any hesitance whatsoever.

In the past, Michelle has stated to the media that Harvard introduced her and Barack to one another. After falling in love, he was able to maintain his position as the most powerful man in the world for a considerable amount of time thanks to his marriage to Michelle. All of a sudden, things started to look like they were going in the right direction.
