When French voters are asked to describe the centrist presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron, age appears to be a defining characteristic in several ways. The 39-year-old Macron could become the youngest contemporary French president. He would also be accompanied into the Élysée Palace by his wife, Brigitte, who is 24 years older than he is.
"After Years of Hiding Their Relationship, Brigitte and Emmanuel Macron Enter the Political Stage Together" is from the April 24, 2017 World section of The Washington Post. It was written by Rick Noack and narrated by Sam Scholl.
