    Where it all started?

    Emmanuel Macron was a mere student of art as a teen. He used to love his drama teacher (married with 3 kids at that time, even one was class mate of Emmanuel Macron) Brigitte Trogneux. He was just 15 at that time. On the other hand, the teacher herself was quite inspired and mesmerized by the extreme inborn potential and talent of her student i.e. Emmanuel Macron. As she herself states;

    “We wrote together every Friday, Emmanuel Macron— The Strategy of a Star.” “Little by little, I became complete subjugated by the intelligence of this young man. His mind is so full and perfect. His capacities are completely beyond any normal human being’s.”

     When they Fell in Love!

    Sooner it all turned into love. As the biography about Macron states; “They spoke for hours on the phone every day. And Emmanuel told Brigitte, ‘I will be back for you. Whatever you do, I will marry you.’

    And he came true to his words. In spite of the age difference of 24 years, they married back in 2007. Even after a decade, they are going strong.
