In an exclusive interview with Paris Match, Brigitte Macron revealed the reason behind her decision to wait ten years before marrying French President Emmanuel Macron. The 70-year-old first lady spoke candidly about the challenges she faced in her relationship with her 45-year-old husband, and how she put her children’s well-being above all else.
Brigitte began dating Emmanuel when he was just 15 years old and she was his drama teacher in Amiens, France. Despite initial resistance from his parents and concerns about age differences, their relationship continued to grow stronger. However, it wasn’t until ten years later that they decided to marry – a decision that was made carefully to avoid causing any harm to their children, who were around the same age as him.
Their relationship has been a subject of interest for many since they married in 2007. Brigitte and Emmanuel have two children together and are currently living at the Élysée Palace in Paris. Their marriage has been lauded for its strong bond and mutual respect for one another’s opinions and beliefs.
In recent years, Brigitte has become known for her philanthropic work and her passion for education. She has also been praised for her ability to balance motherhood with public life while maintaining a strong sense of privacy about her personal life. With their son now grown up and their daughters on the cusp of adulthood, it will be interesting to see what lies ahead for this beloved couple in the future.
