Sheila Miyoshi Jager is forthcoming about her relationship with the future Prez in her interview with the author, recounting their time living together in Chicago, meeting one another's parents, and even their serious marriage talks.
In fact, Sheila says she only declined his first proposal because her mother thought she was still too young at just 23 years old.
But the relationship ended for other reasons; the couple's downfall seemed to parallel Barack's political rise:
