Brigitte Macron is the wife of Emmanuel Macron, the current President of the French Republic. She is a former high school teacher. Her marriage to Macron is regarded as unconventional by many due to the fact that she is senior to her husband by 25 years. A professionally qualified teacher, she worked at the La Providence, a Jesuit high school in Amiens, for several years. She taught French and Latin, and also ran the theater club where she first met Emmanuel Macron who was a budding actor. She appreciated his talents and encouraged him to do this best. What started as a mentor-protégé relationship eventually developed into a romantic liaison despite their age difference and the fact that Brigitte was already married. Their relationship continued over the years and finally culminated in marriage after Trogneux divorced her first husband. Brigitte Macron has played a major role in her husband’s flourishing political career and acts as a guide and adviser to him on important matters.
