Glamorous Bavarian wants law to allow 7-year itch
By Madeline Chambers
BERLIN (Reuters) – Bavaria’s most glamorous politician — a flame-haired motorcyclist who helped bring down state premier Edmund Stoiber — has shocked the Catholic state in Germany by suggesting marriage should last just 7 years.
“The basic approach is wrong … many marriages last just because people believe they are safe,” she told reporters. “My suggestion is that marriages expire after seven years.”
After that time, couples should either agree to extend their marriage or it should be automatically dissolved, she said.
Fifty-year-old Pauli, twice divorced, is a maverick intent on shaking up her male-dominated and mainly Catholic party which has dominated Bavarian politics since World War Two.
“This is about bringing ideas into the CSU and starting a discussion,” she told German television Thursday after she had unleashed a wave of criticism from other politicians.
