Barack Obama's presidency is ending in less than 48 hours. While there will be lots of debate about his presidential legacy, there's one aspect that can never be soiled: his relationship with first lady Michelle Obama.

The first couple met in 1989 at the Chicago law firm Sidley & Austin. Michelle had been assigned to mentor Barack, but their love blossomed over a date to see "Do the Right Thing." They married in 1992, but each time a photo surfaces, it's clear that the fire is still burning between them. Even on the world's stage, their love reigns supreme. 

Here are 20 photos that encapsulate their romance and remind us that love isn't dead:
