berlin - Shortly after the decision of Friday of the German Bundestag to open marriage to people of the same sex, the federal environment minister Barbara Hendricks (SPD) has publicly made her partner a marriage request.
'We have a partnership since October 22, 2010,' said Hendricks at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. 'We can now turn around for the first seven years and marry on October 22nd. '' This is not what it is possible for the forthcoming elections in Germany.
Hendricks had accidentally come to an end in 2013 and said she would celebrate New Year's Eve with her life partner. At the beginning of 2016 she had said that she knows her female partner, who is also in possession of French nationality, for twenty years now. The woman is a teacher and nine years younger than she. 'Through mutual friends we have met each other, she also worked partly in the Bundestag. ''
Her decision to get out of the box took them with the hope that this will help lesbian women become more self-conscious.
