In an interview with Paris Match, Brigitte Macron revealed that she waited ten years to marry French President Emmanuel Macron in order to avoid causing any harm to her children, who were around the same age as him. The couple first started dating when Emmanuel was 15 and Brigitte was his drama teacher.
Their relationship began when she was 40 years old and he was a student in her drama class in Amiens, France. Despite initial resistance from his parents and her concerns about age differences, they continued their relationship. She ultimately divorced her ex-husband in 2006 and later remarried Emmanuel in 2007.
Brigitte and her late ex-husband had one son and two daughters, who are now adults. Following her divorce, she was able to marry Emmanuel Macron, who went on to become the French President in 2017. She discussed the challenges she faced in her relationship with Emmanuel during the interview, expressing concern for her children and stating that she did not want to disrupt their lives.
In an effort to ensure that they were on the right path before marrying, Brigitte made sure that all of her children were well taken care of before making any decisions about their future. This decision took ten years to come to fruition but ultimately led to a successful marriage between two people who truly understood each other’s needs and desires.
