Is Three's Company for French Presidential Candidate?

While many (who aren't white supremacists) are holding their breath for Emmanuel Macron to ride out the first round of France's election on Sunday and eventually take out right-wing euroskeptic Marine Le Pen for the presidency in the May 7th run-off, it wouldn't be very French without something titillating along the way  While you may have already heard that the sexy 39-year-old former economy minister, has had to deny rumors that he's having an extramarital affair with Mathieu Gallet, the 40-year-old boss of Radio France. 

What you may not know is that he met his wife, 64-year-old Brigitte Trogneux, when she was his high-school French teacher when he was 15. By all accounts it was "love at first sight" -- French publications say the pair used to have long discussions together and she would read his writing to the class, which just happened to include her own 15-year-old son -- and at age 17 he asked her to marry him.  (Trogneux, who also ran the drama club where Emmanuel was a budding thespian, was already married with three children when they met!) 

Ooh la la!
