This French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron was sent into exile by his parents after they found out he was having a love affair with his then teacher, whom he had made a promise to marry.
His parents were outraged that their teenage son, 15, was involved with a married mother of three at such a young age and took the decision to ship him off in the hopes that he would forget his lover.
The young boy, however resolved to continue loving her despite their 24-year gap. According to an interview published on the dailymail, a former professor of Emmanuel Macron disclosed the details of the affair.
Macron is now 39-years-old and married to Brigitte, 64, saying she is the reason he wants to succeed.
In an exclusive interview, Prof Monjou told how the heartbroken teenager was exiled to Paris by his parents who were furious at their son’s scandalous affair and warned the mother-of-three to ‘stay away’ until he turned 18.
Prof Monjou added: ‘He wanted to prove to his parents that he had not made a mistake in falling in love with his teacher.
‘And he wanted to prove to his now wife that she had made the right choice in turning her life upside down to be with him.’
His parents contacted the headteacher and asked that he be separated from his teacher and keep the affair a secret. But the young Macron had made up his mind declaring to her, ” I will marry you one day”.
The two love-bird managed to meet up in between his school sessions, with the approval of his grandmother.
Here is the story makes news worldwide;
‘The next French President is 39 years old. But that is not the news.
He is married to a 64 year-old, that is still not the news. His wife was his class teacher 24 years ago…not still the news.
His then class teacher had a daughter who was his class-mate…everybody including his parents thought this teacher’s daughter was his girlfriend…nope they were wrong. He fell in love with his class teacher when he was 15…she was “happily married” with 3 kids…now the “happily married” is relative in this context.
At 17, he promised to marry her. She was at the time 42 years. They got married in 2007 with our man now 30…well she was almost 55.
Next month he is going to be sworn-in as the President of France 6 months to his 40th birthday while his lovely wife who has 3 adult kids and 7 grandchildren (her first child is two years older than her husband while her second child, the former classmate/sweetheart is the same age as him).
