Mary Kay Letourneau “of France,” a 64-year-old woman who is married to the country’s next president, is an embodiment of glitz and glamour. Her name sends cold chills to the bones, not because her husband is a charming 39-year-old Frenchman but for the fact that “Letourneau” is synonymous with criminality and underage sex.

Her real name is Brigitte Trogneux but for love’s sake, she may be referred to as Mary Kay Letourneau “of France.” Blame your opinion on the country’s cultural difference with the United States of America.
In an interesting twist, France’s next First Lady has a 55-year-old doppelganger whose uncontrollable desire for teenage love brought shame to womanhood shortly after she got a teaching job at Shorewood Elementary School in 1989.
The “Bad” Letourneau was sentenced to seven years in prison for statutory rape involving one of her male students named Vili Fualaau. She was released on parole in 1997 after serving 80 days out of the 7-year prison term. Regrettably, the pervert couldn’t stay away from her teen lover.
Letourneau was later caught red-handed by her legal husband who reported this shameful discovery to the authorities. She was subsequently arrested and made to serve her full jail term.
On her release from prison, the two lovebirds sealed their romance with a wedding in 2005, having had two children as well.
The California-born Elementary School Teacher made headlines in the 1990s as a child rapist. She became infamous for having a sexual relationship with Vili Fualaau, a 13-year-old boy in her class.
Both teacher and student started their steamy sexual affair in 1996 until the amorous relationship was uncovered in 1997.
Love, truly, isn’t a thing for the feeble-minded. She was 34 and he was only 12 when it all began.
All said, Emmanuel Macron has been named the next president of France but his marriage to Mark Kay Letourneau “of France” (real name Brigitte Trogneux) is a true love story. His wife was his class teacher barely 24 years ago.
The woman’s daughter was in the same class with Macron but that isn’t news. Everyone suspected them of having a secret affair which turned out to be false. He had developed strong affection for his teacher at the age of 15 even though she was “happily” married with kids. What else can we say?
According to a new book, Brigitte was warned by his teenage son’s father who ordered her to end their unlawful relationship until he turns 18, but Macron boldly defied orders when he proposed marriage to his then 42-year-old teacher at the age of 17.
“I cannot promise you anything,” replied a tearful Trogneux after she was asked to let go of her young lover. She dared her angry father-in-law and continued with the relationship until their marriage in 2007 — shortly after divorcing her husband.
She had three kids and was 24 years older than the young boy who later became her husband. They got married after Macron turned 30.
Next month, Macron will be sworn in as the President of France — barely 6 months to his 40th birthday.
According to a Yahoo News report, the French press refers to Macron as “chouchou” or “teacher’s pet,” some cheeky names which Gabby Kaufmann described as resembling John and Jacqueline Kennedy in Camelot.
The royals — Macron and Brigitte — have also been compared to Vili Fualaau and Mary Kay Letourneau.
France’s next First Lady has 3 adult children and 7 grandchildren, including a first child who is older than Macron. Her second daughter was his classmate and a rumored girlfriend.
In the book written by Anne Fulda, “Emmanuel Macron: A Perfect Young Man” tells an interesting love story.
The writer quotes Macron’s mother as saying, “We couldn’t believe it. What is clear is that when Emmanuel met Brigitte we couldn’t just say: ‘That’s great.'”
Fulda adds that Macron’s parents were dumbfounded after discovering that their son was actually in love with Brigitte when they thought he was making out with her daughter.
“Don’t you see. You’ve had your life. But he won’t have children with you,” Macron’s mother reportedly told Fulda.
Although the writer couldn’t pin-point when Macron and his lover first fell in love, it’s worth noting that his parents dug in their heels against pressing charges for corruption of a minor, Reuters reported.
Brigitte was quoted as saying that “nobody will ever know at what moment our story became a love story. That belongs to us. That is our secret.”
“Nobody would call it unusual if the age difference was reversed,” Macron said during his campaigns in April, 2017. “People find it difficult to accept something that is sincere and unique.”
