In an interview with CBS, former President Barack Obama responds to his wife Michelle's previous comments about their marriage.

Barack acknowledges the role he played in her frustrations and admits that being out of the White House and having more time together has helped their relationship. He also reflects on the stress and tension Michelle experienced while raising their daughters in an abnormal situation.
