Behind every successful man there is a woman: what is known about the wife of Macron, who stunned with his intention to send troops to Ukraine

What is known about the wife of French President Emmanuel Macron, Brigitte

French President Emmanuel Macron's love story with Brigitte Macron deserves a movie, as it dates back to 1992 when the future high-ranking official was only 15 years old, and his teacher was 39. Over the 32 years of their relationship, the woman passed on her life experience to the politician and has always been his companion. Such support allowed Macron to gain recognition not only in France but also abroad due to his active international activities.

Brigitte Macron herself (at the time with the surname of Osier) taught the future politician literature and theater at a high school, People writes. She considered Macron to be an incredibly gifted young man, and her daughter Laurence called her classmate Mozart. At the time, the woman was married to banker Andre-Louis Ozier and had three children together: daughters Tiffen and Laurence and son Sebastian. Of course, Brigitte Ozier wanted a quiet family life at the time, but the sympathy of the schoolboy Macron did not give her peace of mind.

Once, after a public performance of The Art of Comedy by the Italian writer Eduard De Filippo, which was adapted specifically for students, a student bowed low and kissed his teacher on the cheek, and she smiled with delight. This was the beginning of rumors about a married woman having an affair with a teenager.

Emmanuel Macron was even sent to a Paris boarding school for his young love with Brigitte Ozier, who was 24 years older than him, but this did not help him "get the woman of his dreams out of his head." At the same time, she stopped teaching theater and switched to Latin. According to The Independent, the first lady of France hoped that during the young man's stay in another city, he would forget about her and find a woman of his age, but instead, he kept in touch with a person whose children were Macron's age.

Then, as we can see, Brigitte's life turned upside down and in 2006 she got a divorce, and the following year she accepted Macron's offer to become his wife.

"I took the time not to ruin my children's lives. It took me 10 years to get them back on their feet. You can imagine what they heard. But I didn't want to miss my life," the first lady told the NewYorkPost.

In her new position as first lady since 2017, Brigitte Macron has been subjected to considerable harassment, the most notable of which was an anti-campaign where people claimed that the woman was actually transgender with a real name, Jean-Michel Tronier. This lie hurt the president's wife, and she filed a lawsuit against the two gossips who spread the information. An "independent journalist and psychic" from unknown sources claimed that the first lady's documents were forged and that as a man she had a relationship with Catherine Ozier, who had never actually met Brigitte Macron.

In 2023, the investigation of the case was completed and, of course, there was not a shred of truth in the slander. As a punishment, the court ordered each of the gossips to pay a fine of €2,000, €3,000 to Catherine Auzier and her husband, and €2,000 in court costs.

Despite the disagreements, over the 17 years of their marriage, Brigitte Macron has become an "anchor" for the French president. It is she who shows politicians how important the truth is, he said in an interview with CNN.

In turn, the first lady believes that she has no influence on her husband's important decisions, such as his intention to send French troops to Ukraine. "We are an ordinary couple. I have the influence that a wife can have on her husband. The fact that he is president has not changed anything. Except that we are in the news. This is our everyday life. When I see him free, I ask questions and tell him what I think. He knows what I'm doing at any time of the day," she told Paris Match.
