Congrats to the happy couple! And hopefully that never-ending inheritance dispute will finally come to an end because there is nothing his uncles can say against this perfect marriage

How will the religion issue work? Will she convert? Will he? Does it matter anymore?

From the German version I understand that they market patents of stuff that was developed and invented at institutions of higher education (meaning unversities or politechnics).

Congratulations to the couple! I'm looking forward to their wedding.
