Emmanuel Macron’s wife 25 years older than him

Weird stuff. She was his school teacher when he was 15 years old.

  1. This is France, Lion. Le Pen is living with a boyfriend, which kinda weird for a presidential candidate. JS and Bruno should explain this to us.

    • JS is apparently a weird guy from Spain but he never posts anything interesting about Europe. His sole purpose for posting on this blog is talking about how much he hates America over and over again.

      • Btw Bruno seems cool.

        I always tell people in my travels abroad that only about 5% of Americans are cool, people like Beck, Billy Corgan, LOTB, The Beatles, Rolling Stones…

        So maybe it is similar for France. A few of them are cool, but most of them are waaaayyyyy too cocky and coasting on the waves of their cultural success.

      • Can’t speak too confidently about the French, but having lived in Europe for almost 15 years I got to know a number of them. Many wonderful folks, but there was a common character defect that I observed… a lack of humility and an occasional unfounded confidence in their “expertise.” The “average” western European might be better educated, well-travelled and more worldly than the average American. However I found myself astonished by their readiness to “tell me about Americans and what’s wrong with America” based on a few tv shows or some superficial two-week expeditions from their travels through the US. Intelligent, educated, yet ignorant. One of the most important lessons we should all learn is to know our limits.

        A nice example of this “typical” “know-it-all” arrogant attitude that can be found in many middle-class and even intellectual Europeans can be experienced reading something like this.

        Whatever might be my criticisms of Europe and America, I do love both, as one might unfaithfully love two mistresses… However as much as I admire the vitality and dynamism of America, I think my unambitious reflective mentality and my taste for slow familiar life probably makes me long for life back in Europe. Furthermore the pace of life, individualism, atomisation and the embrace of innovation and consumerism in America make me think that Europe offers a more hospitable situation for fostering community and raising family that the US. Alas the vulnerable economic situation and the relative uncompetitiveness of firms in Europe make employment perspectives there more uncertain as Europe hasn’t really yet reconciled its relationship with globalization, international cultural and economic competition and the insulating features of its welfare state and social institutions. Sure the goodies offered by the global market tempt European citizens, but can the European workers and producers compete and keep up with it and stay relevant to European and global consumers? This appears to be where France is.

        And then there is also their inability to integrate migrants from a foreign and incompatible culture who are resistant to assimilation…. Short of ethnic cleansing, I see no way out of the situation they’ve dug themselves into… Perhaps they could “bribe” the most worthless and dangerous of their guests who are otherwise unwilling to become French and European in every way?

        Alternatively we need to think creatively about how we think about naturalization. Perhaps the 7 – 10 years of probationary time is too short? Maybe we need to start thinking about scrutinizing the people after two or three generations to see if they’ve really integrated?

      • JS’s parents may be from Spain (or the Balkans) but I don’t think he is. People who immigrate are usually happy because it’s a better life and they have high hopes for their kids. But living in America doesn’t change their genetics. So their kids are still dumb. And then they’re bitter for not being successful.

      • JS engages in discussions of French philosophy with French girls, so he should be able to provide an insight into their psyche.

  2. It’s weird, but a little less weird when you realize the French are very relaxed about tacit affairs. Anglos probably don’t realize how alien sexual mores there are. I’ve read of shocked brits walking in on middle aged orgies after dinner parties.

    Who are actually Macron’s kids is the interesting question.

  3. Reminds me of JEB! and his low sexual-market-value wife.

    • El Jeb is not homosexual I would bet. He’s just a loser. Its kind of amusing somebody that woeful ran for president.

      I found him more awkward or lulzy than Herman Cain, Sarah Palin and the Quayle person in many ways.

  4. To be 39 years old with no kids and married to a 54 year old woman. He is either emotionally immature or she is a beard. I’ll go with the latter. Of course the left will love him even more when they eventually find out that he’s gay.

    • This woman isn’t 54, she’s 64!! This is utterly bizarre. Run of the mill homosexual politicians like Marco Rubio marry some younger woman and begrudgingly have sex with them a few times for the purpose of child breeding. This Macron is a really sick case, couldn’t even bring himself to do that.

      • Macron being gay or asexual is the only explanation which makes sense. There are young guys who marry women significantly older than them, and they end up either moving on once the women are no longer attractive and fertile, or they stick with them for the lack of better options.

        Newt Gingrich married one of his teachers to dodge the draft, but we all know how he philandered around.

        There’s no way Macron lacked options. He’s relatively handsome (not George Clooney but definitely not an ugly guy), worked at the extremely prestigious Rothschild Bank, and took up high ranking positions in French government. Furthermore, it’s all but expected that a French politician will indulge affairs, the only onus being that he keeps it discreet. By all accounts, there are no rumors he’s indulge affairs.

        According to tbe Financial Times article about his time at Rothschild Bank, his coworkers apparently found him strange. Said thank you too frequently, apparently.

      • Yeah, my initial thought was “beard”, especially after Boy George apparently assumed this guy was gay.

        But the whole point of a beard is to stop people asking questions. And being a bachelor raises fewer questions than being married to an old woman.

        Most likely: she fit the template of the mentally ill teacher who is sexually interested in her teenaged student. A lot of guys who struggle with girls end up “taking what they can get” for a first girlfriend — in this case, a woman who was, at the time, in her 40s. He ended up marrying her, his first girlfriend, and he has a super-powered rationalization engine that has kept the marriage going since then.

        That rationalization engine is also useful if you want to convince yourself that Muslim immigration is good for France.

    • Biologically this relationship arguably makes sense. A sexually experienced 43 year old might seem pretty alluring to an inexperienced 18 year old, and she seems to have been fairly hot in her 40s. And I assume that now that his wife is post-menopausal, she won’t care that much if he sleeps around with younger women. This is France we are talking about. French politicians are notorious philanderers. Your wife is your companion and social partner, sex is easily available elsewhere.

    The woke Left hate Bernie more than they hate Trump. One guy on NeoGaf even outright said as much.

    What’s interesting though is guess which demographic Bernie has the most support from? Blacks, at a whopping 80%. Even Latinos only give Bernie 73% approval.

  8. We had a president, Français Mitterrand, living with two families at the same time, and the elite knew, but never told people. A famous french writter wrote a book about a president with two families and there was a movie about the subjecti, during Mitterrand’s life, but there was no comment, then 99.9% of french didn’t even imagine it was the story of their president. He put an army to spy famous people and scared them if they dared to speak. And as for the gay partnership and “marriage”, the biggest demonstration have taken place in France. So i think it’s more an elite state of mind imposed on the people, reflected on movies and litterature, that normal ways.

    There were lot’s of rumour that Macron is gay but there were unfounded. I knew people who were in the same elite school than him – ENA – and they say he wasn’t gay. In that school, it’s almost impossible to hide it, because people are very upfront and you get to socialize around the clock during 27 months.

    Men with older women is extremely rare. And 25 years difference is almost unheard, except if the girl is clever, rich, powerful, and the guy is a cute dummy, like a model (the madonna type). We have a famous anchor Claire Chazal in that case. When he dated her, she was powerful locally. Her family are industrial from the region and she was a teacher in the best preparatory school.Preparatory school teachers have in France the prestige of a chaired ivy league professor. The prestige is not based on research but on the ability to prepare the students on the very competitives exams to enter the best universities (Grandes Ecoles). So the case is even more unique because he staid with her. There is a caricature muppet show where he is attracted by all +80 yo stars.

    Reality is not far from that, in 4 years, if he’s elected, we’ll have a 44 yo president with a 70 years old first lady. It’s so chocking that nobody speaks about it, only jokes.

  9. He couldn’t have kids because when she dated him, she was alreay 43, and had already 3 kids, and had to divorce. Imagine the scandal in a small town. Her family was very well known there (chocalate industrials) and she had an happy marriage. It’s started because he was in a high school theater company and she was helping in adapting the novel to a theater play, and they were seeing each other every afternoon for that.

  10. They maintained the relationship during 10 years and married when Macron ended his study after ENA school (this school is a post graduate professional school, you get into with 23-28yo if you don’t have previous professional experience) . Current president Hollande is from this school (80 graduates each year) has were half of french presidents (chirac, giscard d’estaing etc).

  11. Macron profile equivalent in prestige in the USA would be a princeton, Harvard MBA/JD joint degree with a career at Goldman Sachs after clerking for a supreme court judge. In your governmen, he would be like a Steven Mnuchin (art and finance). Except here, you can do that without being that very clever, and there is no way Macron has more than 115 IQ.

    • This is fascinating. It seems like a case of two elites partnering up during a steamy romance which as since evolved into a practical alliance.

      Now that trannies are “normal” what is beyond the pale? Only pedos, and who knows if that will be “normalized” in our lifetimes.

      The thought of sex with a 70 year old woman is horrifying.

    • According to the Financial Times, he didn’t know what EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization) when he started working at Rothschild.

      Emmanuel Macron’s Rothschild years make him an easy election target – https://www.ft.com/content/9bd62502-12cf-11e7-b0c1-37e417ee6c76 via @FT

      Granted, that concept may not be common knowledge to non-MBAs, but it’s a sign that the elite bank was hiring him for his educational pedigree and people skills, both of which he appears to have in spades. (You can’t become president of a democratic republic before the age of 40 without some superb people skills.)

  15. After her first husband died, Lady Randolph Churchill (Winston’s cougar mum) married a man 20 years her junior. She divorced him after 14 years of marriage. Then, at the age of 67, she married a man 23 years her junior, her third husband, who was three years younger than her son.

    Candice Millard delves into some of this in her latest book, HERO OF THE EMPIRE, about Winston Churchill’s participation in the Second Boer War.
