Emmanuel Macron becomes The Youngest President of France after he defeated Marine Le Pen by 66.06% to 33.94%, according to the French interior ministry.

The Love life which was beyond age barriers
Macron is married to Brigitte Trogneux, 24 years older than him. His wife was his class teacher 24 years ago. She had a daughter who was Emmanuel’s classmate. Everybody including his parents, thought Brigitte’s daughter as his girlfriend. Emmanuel fell in love with his class teacher when he was 15. She was married and had 3 kids at that time. He promised to marry her when she was 42 and the young lover was 17. They finally got hitched in 2007 with Macron being 30 and Brigitte being 55. His lovely wife has now 3 adult kids and 7 grandchildren including her first child from her X-husband who is 2 years older than the newly elected French President.
