That's a rather wrong translation. Georg works for a firm that links university research to industry and helps researchers ( especially scientist and engineers ) to sell their results in a profitable way. Or he helps the doctors, PhDs and professors to open their own firms like laboratories and (manu)factories.
He is a agent so to say. His firm gets a certain percent of the researchers win. About patents: The researchers results must be patented, so that thiscertain product is the only one on the market ( because engages AG's win is bigger then).
And he is not working in Rostock the whole day. This firm has a dependance there, but their work in the whole north-eastern sector of Germany - so Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt-Oder etc.

I believe they will be a good example of people who get hooked because it seems so "fitting". Okay, they have known each other for a long time and there won't be such pressures on a Mrs. Prinzessin von Preussen as it was once on The Princess of Wales but still I'm not convinced this marriage will last after she has given him his heir. Oh, I do wish them all the best and really hope they'll make it to a Happily Ever After but there's a "but" I don't feel with those Royal marriages where the spouse was chosen for love and love only without any regard for her bloodlines.

It seems they have been dating for quite a long time, so I guess the decision to get married has been given a very careful consideration.

My thoughts, just my deepest thoughts dear Kataryn ! You speak from my soul !
These were just my thoughts, but I didn't want to say because I didn't want to be the "grinch" here.

I guess this is more a marriage of convenience. Both are glad to marry noble. They might even have deep feelings for each other and like each other. But I'm not sure if that marriage is forever.

But of course we don't know them and I wish them all the best and no divorce ( especially for their childrens good ), many children and luck.

How do you know that they didn't decide to get married because they are deeple in love with each other? Are all marriages between to aristocrates (and there are quite a lot) simply for dynastic reasons?
I guess if she would have been chosen purely for her bloodline, he would have gone for a protestant princess and as far as I know she is a catholic. Don't know though if she will convert but I think everything is fine when she agrees to raise their children as protestants.
They've been dating for quite a while now so if it wouldn't be for love, why wait for so long?

Some more pictures of Sophie...

tralalala and this proves once again that the minor or non reigning royals or aristocracy marry amongst their peers more than the reigning ones, as if to preserve what they have left.

This may be true, but many of the minor and/or non reigning royals/aristocracy/nobles are actually more grounded and as well richer than their reigning counterparts. They normally support themselves whereas the "Country" supports the "Royals".

All open their castles to the public and both very well may have a trust from the Government for the upkeep of the castles as many cities throughout the world maintain their historic properties in that matter.

We very well may not know, this could be a love match, cautious, but a love match; I would like to think that it is.

The case was settled several years ago.

It is hardly a marriage of convenience. Georg Friedrich and Sophie have been dating for several years, and have known each other since they were children.

That doesn't mean it's no marriage of convenience. May be they like each other more than they love each other. But they thought it makes sense to marry because both would find no better / more appropriate ? I'm not envious, I'm just worrying.

It has been my observation that marriages that were made when the two parties were in the depths of their 'love' tend not to last as long as the marriages of those who were deep and abiding friends with many interests and goals in common. That's why I tend to be cynical about those who profess undying love - it never seems to be the case.

Cool

What a pleasant surprise! What a good looking couple, but my goodness, there already talk of divorce and they aren't even married yet?

But just imagine how "clairvoyant" a person would have appeared who feared for Charles' and Diana's marriage even before they were wed.... Or think of the Schaumburg-Lippe/Sayn-marriage who ended after the heir was born and then the Fuerst Alexander moved on to marry a commoner (Nadja), whose children have no right of inheritance....Or the Oettingen-Spielberg/Sayn-marriage which broke down after the heirs were born and ended in divorce...

These things happen, especially in Germany and I must say I much prefer the Habsburg-approach of today where not a past head of the family but the present one decides about who is equal or not (if these families still feel the need to have equal marriages....)
