I was 15 years old — the same age French Presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron was when he had his first tentative encounter with wife-to-be, Brigitte Trogneux.
Macron's wife was his school teacher and he vowed to marry her when he was just 17.
The father exiled the probable future president if only to scatter them, but according to a interview, this only strengthened their resolve and now, Brigittie Trogneux is likely to be the First Lady.
The fact that she was strictly out of bounds added greatly to the mystery and the longing.
James Innes-Smith fell in love with a woman 20 years older than him at the age of 15, the same age French Presidential hopeful Emmanuel Macron met wife-to-be Brigitte Trogneux.
The biggest news from the Western hemisphere this past fortnight was the tightly contested French elections that Emmanuel Macron won against Marine Le Pen by razor-thin margin, prompting a May 7 run off.
Another news emerged that the dashing Macron is married to a woman who is 24 years older than him and that has become the story, despite the two contenders being outsiders who represent extreme ideological differences.The first woman I ever fell in love with was 20 years older than me.Her name was Judith and she worked as a matron at my boarding school.She was his drama teacher, married and 25 years his senior.I’d grown up with two older sisters so being around more mature women was nothing new but this felt different — very different.I never tell the women I date my age, but from my actions they probably think that I am in my early thirties.
