What difference does that make?
Macron is married to Brigitte Trogneux, who is 24 years older than he is and was his teacher in La Providence high school in Amiens. They first met when he was a 15-year-old student in her class, but were officially a couple only after he turned 18.
His parents initially attempted to separate the couple by sending him away to Paris to finish the final year of his schooling, as they felt his youth made this relationship inappropriate, but the couple stayed together after he graduated and married in 2007.
They live with Trogneux's three children from her previous marriage.
