Imagine the outcry if the genders were reversed and a male teacher had an affair with a 15/16 year old female student.
Emmanuel Macron’s wife, Brigitte Trogneux, is 24 years Macron’s senior. The 64-year-old First Lady of France met Macron when he was a 15-year-old high school student and she was his drama teacher. The grandmother of eight divorced her banker husband when Macron was 18 and then moved to Paris to be with him. In 2007, they got married.
