In the field of social liberalism USA is light years behind France… Can you imagine an UNMARRIED couple in The White House?
France`s election of Socialist Party candidate François Hollande, 57, as president has drawn attention to Valerie Trierweiler, 47, who will become the country`s next first lady. She is different from her predecessors in many aspects.
For one, she is the partner of the president-elect, not his wife since they are not married, and will probably become the first single first lady in France. Moreover, she plans to keep her job as a journalist and raise her children even after entering the presidential mansion, effectively becoming the first “working mom” to serve as first lady.
Hollande is also set to become France`s single president since he won the election while living with Trierweiler as an unmarried couple after getting a divorce.
