In an interview with Paris Match, Brigitte Macron revealed the reason behind her decision to wait ten years before marrying French President Emmanuel Macron. According to the 70-year-old first lady, she was concerned about the impact of her relationship on her children, who were around the same age as Emmanuel at the time.
Brigitte and Emmanuel first started dating when he was just 15 years old and she was his drama teacher in Amiens, France. Despite initial resistance from his parents and her own concerns about their age differences, they continued their relationship. After divorcing her ex-husband in 2006, Brigitte eventually married Emmanuel in 2007.
Their marriage has been marked by several challenges, including criticism from some French citizens over their perceived lack of a traditional family life. However, Brigitte has remained committed to putting her children first and ensuring that they receive a good education and opportunities for success.
Today, Brigitte is proud of her two daughters and one son with her late ex-husband, who are now adults living successful lives on their own. With Emmanuel by her side as President of France, she continues to work towards creating a better future for all French citizens.
