Unexpectedly for many, he took a leading position in public opinion polls and, with a good combination of circumstances for him, was able to win the 2017 elections. Macron's first “five-year plan” had a lot of upheavals and crises. Large-scale railroad strikes against the government's proposed reform of the SNCF railway company, mass protests of the yellow vest movement, demonstrations against the planned pension reform, against the global security law, the brutal murder of a history teacher near Paris, the terrorist attack in the church of Nice, the sanitary crisis against the backdrop of the coronavirus epidemic. One of the tests for the image of Macron was also the criminal case against the former employee of his administration, Alexandre Benalle, who was accused of using force against demonstrators in May 2018 and was sentenced to three years in prison, two of them on probation. However, Macron managed to get through everything this, while maintaining a good rating.

According to the French media, at the age of 17, Emmanuel told his beloved: Whatever you do, I will marry you.” And so it happened, but much later. In 2006, Brigitte divorced her first husband. Some time later, Macron proposed to her, and already in 2007, the couple signed at the city hall of Le Touquet, where the family villa of the first lady of France is located, which she inherited after the death of her father. The Macron couple have no common children. Brigitte has three children from her first marriage and seven grandchildren.
