Macron could be the youngest French President with a twist!
The country will have an unexpected first lady if Emmanuel Macron defeats far-right candidate Marine Le Pen in May for the French Presidency.
Brigitte Trogneux was Macron's drama teacher in the high school and is 25 years older to him.
He was just 16 when he vowed to marry her. She was a mother of three at that time, and his parents were against this love affair.
This unusual love story has captivated French magazines and tabloids. And, it emerged as a major storyline during Macron's rise towards the Elysee Palace, with the husband and wife rising above the critics and hitting back.
Macron quit the Socialist Party to run for the Presidential post.
He's 39, and she is 64-years-old.
...Macron wants to give the idea that if he can win over a woman who is 24 years older to him and is a mother to three children despite being mocked, then he can conquer France the same way.extraordinary
