In an interview with Paris Match, French First Lady Brigitte Macron spoke about 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 her 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. However, their relationship faced many challenges due to age differences and initial resistance from his parents. Despite these obstacles, they continued their relationship and eventually divorced Brigitte’s ex-husband in 2006 before marrying Emmanuel in 2007.
Brigitte spoke about the difficult decision she made to wait ten years before marrying Emmanuel, stating that she wanted to make sure her children were on the right path before making such a big change in their lives. She emphasized that it was a tough choice but ultimately felt it was the right one for both her family and herself.
The couple had one son and two daughters together who are now adults. Following her divorce from her ex-husband, Brigitte was able to marry Emmanuel Macron, who went on to become the French President in 2017. Their love story has inspired many and continues to captivate people around the world.
