At 92, Jean-Marie Le Pen decided to marry the woman who has shared her life for decades …
It was on his Twitter profile that Jean-Marie Le Pen, the former leader of the Front National (now Rassemblement National) published a press release in which we learned that his wife had been attacked. It was around 1 p.m. when the 86-year-old woman went out to shop in the streets of La Celle Saint-Cloud. She is then attacked by a man who steals her bag, before throwing her to the ground and punching her several times in the face: “Thrown to the ground, Ms. LE PEN sportingly resisted her attacker in a resolute and courageous attitude” relates the press release.
The Le Pen couple are very united, in good times as in bad times. Together since 1991, the couple had never married religiously, it is now done! At 92 and 88 years old, Jean-Marie and Jany said “yes” to each other according to the Catholic rite at their home in Rueil-Malmaison. Twenty years after their civil marriage, the two spouses wished to bless their union thanks to Father Philippe Laguérie, former parish priest of Saint-Nicolas-du-Chardonnet in Paris.

But this ceremony poses a problem within the clan. Indeed, the three daughters of Jean-Marie Le Pen as well as his eight grandchildren discovered the information in the press. Visibly shocked, Yann, Marine’s older sister confides in our colleagues at Le Figaro: “It’s quite disturbing. We wonder why? How? Learning this through the press is humiliating and hurtful for us her children, as for all his grandchildren. I have a very close relationship with my father. It is something that would have made me very happy if he had married his wife in his old age. But there, we feel that something is not normal … His entourage is not very Catholic … “
