In an interview with news magazine Paris Match, French First Lady Brigitte Macron opened up about the challenges she faced in her relationship with her 45-year-old husband, French President Emmanuel Macron. She revealed that she waited ten years to marry him in order to avoid causing any harm to their children, who were around the same age as him at the time.
The couple first started dating when Emmanuel was just 15 and Brigitte was his drama teacher. Despite initial resistance from his parents and her concerns about age differences, they continued their relationship and eventually married in 2007. However, before making that decision, Brigitte made sure to put her children on the right path and ensure that they were comfortable with the idea of their mother marrying someone so much younger than herself.
Brigitte’s relationship with Emmanuel began when she was 40 years old and he was a student in her drama class in Amiens, France. They remained together through thick and thin, including his parents’ initial disapproval and Brigitte’s own fears about their age difference. Eventually, they decided to get married and started a new life together as a family.
Today, Brigitte is proud of the life she has built with Emmanuel and is grateful for the love and support he has given her throughout their journey together. She remains committed to using her platform as First Lady to make a positive impact on French society and inspire others to follow in their footsteps.
