"We have to be willing to listen to each other, honestly and without defensiveness. Only then, can we evolve together," she said.

"Over the years, a lot of young people have asked me about marriage. And my response usually goes something like this: You have to prepare yourself for long stretches of discord and discomfort."

"What are you trying to get out of this relationship? Have you truly thought it through? Do you want a wedding or do you want a lifelong partnership?" she asked. 

In her new book The Light We Carry, Michelle admits she struggles with negative thoughts about her appearance and her "fearful mind" adding that women need to "learn to love ourselves as we are".

She reveals that she "hates how I look all the time and no matter what."
