(CNSNews.com) - In a speech at Morgan State University in Maryland on Friday evening, First Lady Michelle Obama said that she fell in love with Barack Obama because of his character.

“My job in Charlotte I thought was pretty easy, because I had the pleasure and the honor of talking about the man I have loved and admired for 23 years and why I decided to marry him," said Mrs. Obama. "See, everybody liked my speech, but I had good material to work with.

"I’ve been sharing our story a little bit, but I want the young people to pay attention because, see, back when I first met Barack, we started dating, he had everything going for him," she said. "All right, ladies, listen to this.  This is what I want you to be looking for. Yes, he was handsome--still is. I think so. He was charming, talented, and oh-so smart, truly.  But that is not why I married him.

"Now, see, I want the fellas to pay attention to this. You all listening?" said Mrs. Obama. "What truly made me fall in love with Barack Obama was his character. You hear me? It was his character. It was his decency, his honesty, his compassion and conviction."
