Former President Barack Obama clearly knows a thing or two about finding lasting love. One time, he generously gave some advice to his former communications director Dan Pfeiffer on whether Pfeiffer had found the right woman to propose to during the director's last day on the job.

And in Pfeiffer's new book Yes, We (Still) Can, Pfeiffer made it public.

A couple years ago, a now-viral story in the New York Times posited that there were 13 questions you should ask before getting married. Obama just has three, according to Pfeiffer:

"Here’s the advice I give everyone about marriage—is she someone you find interesting? You will spend more time with this person than anyone else for the rest of your life, and there is nothing more important than always wanting to hear what she has to say about things. Does she make you laugh? And I don’t know if you want kids, but if you do, do you think she will be a good mom? Life is long. These are the things that really matter over the longterm."



Take it from a man who knows.
