The couple cohabits in the Elysee Palace as a matter of right because the male partner Hollande is the constitutionally elected President of France. Trierweller, of course, lives in the reflected glory of her lover boy and enjoys every moment of it.

Trierweller lives in the Elysee Palace because President Hollande, who never tied the nuptial knot, loves to have Valerie around to boost his morale as she has been doing all along.

Never mind, East is East; West is West: Twain shall never meet.
Wish the unwed couple a happy living.
