The Sarkozys: One Year Of L'Amour (SLIDESHOW)

*Scroll down for slideshow*

The French practically invented public displays of affection, so why not take a closer look at the country's first couple, President Nicolas Sarkozy and his lovely bride Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. The couple went public a little over a year ago, shortly after the president's divorce from his second wife Cecilia, and tied the knot less than two months later. Bruni-Sarkozy recently revealed that her February 2nd wedding was a quickie, and that the couple had decided to tie the knot only two days earlier.

Of the very short engagement, Bruni-Sarkozy told David Letterman last month that she moved "pretty quickly, yes, but it's not so comfortable to be dating when you're the President of France. Maybe if he was a doctor or lawyer we would have been engaged a little longer."

This week the couple is traveling in Brazil where the First Lady, who has dated Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton and Donald Trump, gave an interview to Brazilian Marie Claire, in which she declared "I can no longer seduce because I love my husband. I don't want to hurt him. I am no longer a man-eater." She went on to say, "We are newlyweds. We don't say much, we kiss."

Oh, the French.
