There is an age disparity between the newly elected French President, Emanuel Macron, and his wife Brigitte. He is 39 years of age and she is 64. Today, that's not much of a big deal, it makes her a super cougar, but it's no big deal.
The point that does make it a big deal is how and where they met. Macron was a 15 year-old student in a high school drama class. Brigitte was his teacher. If that sounds quite a bit like the Mary Kay Letourneau story you wouldn't be incorrect.
What landed Letourneau in jail here in the United States served as, perhaps, a political asset for Macron in France; a testimony to just how different our cultures really are despite the Progressive-Left's desire to model our society after Europe's.
Interesting, too, is that this leader (who no doubt will tout the standard Progressive-Left line of "we must do it for the children") - as well as a great many leaders in Europe, including Germany's Angela Merkel, Britain's Theresa May; Italy's Paolo Gentiloni, Holland’s Mark Rutte, Sweden’s Stefan Löfven, Luxembour’s Xavier Bettel, Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon, and the EU's Jean-Claude Juncker - all have no children. Interesting in that they literally have no "skin in the game" when it comes to how they leave their nations for the next generation.
As a good friend of mine wrote in a personal Facebook post of mine, the EU's reproduction rate stands at 1.6, a full 0.1 below what is needed to simply maintain a sovereign population. Meanwhile, many "immigrant groups" that have inundated Europe have reproduction rates well over 2.0.
If you do the math it is plain to see that Europe will cease to exist as a continent of unique and necessary cultures in a little under one generation.
Viva la France!
