So it seems Melania Trump and Michelle Obama have more in common than just the title of First Lady and being married to a U.S. president.
The women apparently share the same secret to a happy marriage as well.
“One of the keys to a successful marriage is separate bathrooms,” former first lady Obama said on the “Today” show where she was announcing the launch of her new Obama Foundation initiative Global Girls Alliance.
“When he enters my bathroom sometimes I’m like, ‘Why are you in here?’ And he’s like, ‘I live here, can I enjoy my bathroom too?’” she said.

It seems Obama has some support for that theory in her successor.
First lady Melania Trump told People magazine in 2015, “The key to a healthy marriage is having separate bathrooms.”
The Trumps allegedly use separate bedrooms in the White House as well, according to People, though they are not the first to do so. President John F. Kennedy had a separate bedroom from his wife Jacqueline as did President Lyndon Johnson and Lady Bird, and the Nixons.
But Trump denied an US Weekly story in 2017 about the separate bedrooms and recently dismissed tales of alleged infidelities by her husband in an interview with Chief National Affairs Correspondent Tom Llamas while she was on a solo tour in Africa.

“It is not concern and focus of mine,” Trump said. “I’m a mother and a first lady, and I have much more important things to think about and to do.”
