During an interaction with Le Parisian, Macron talked about his relationship and the age gap between his wife and himself. He said, “if I had been 20 years older than my wife, nobody would have thought for a single second that I couldn’t be”.
On the other hand, in an interview with Elle France Brigitte said, “There are times in your life where you need to make vital choices. And for me, that was it. So, what has been said over the 20 years, it’s insignificant.”
The First Lady of France further added, “Of course, we have breakfast together, me and my wrinkles, him with his youth, but it’s like that. If I did not make that choice, I would have missed out on my life.
