Well, I for one didn't know that Gustav and Carina hired PR specialists :P You are interpreting facts. No more and no less.

Well, Mary is pregnant not Fred, so I guess, as Carina is 42, you can hardly compare

I know this is off topic but it's alright/not as risky have your second or third child if you are over 40. However, it is fairly risky to have your first child when you are over 40. It can happen(obviously) but it is not recomended strongly.

Well it takes two to tango.
Carina looks fit and healthy, i'm sure having a child wouldn't do her or the baby any harm.

Men can be fathers even in their 80s, look like charles chaplin, but women it is different story, today you have medicine helping and for what i understand the older lady getting pregnant with her own eggs it was48 so she has some time with fertiliation treatment, but may be it is the case that they do not want or she does not want to go to all the treatment, it is painfull and stressful for what i understand! it cost a lot of money too, but money would not be a problem in this case, for me Carina and gustav it is a sad story1

Here is a question as I not familiar with German law.

I know that Gustav lost the lawsuit to overturn his grandfather's will, correct? If so, did he appeal it?

If Gustav and Carina have a child, then get married...will the child be considered legit...so they could keep everything in the child's name?

Does that make sense?

It makes sense and in the question of the child, I don't think he/she would be considered legit, because one, they were born out of wedlock and two, when they married he would loose everything.
Well I think anyway.

The reason that I ask that for certain countries like Monaco, if Albert married Nicole....than Alexandre would be legit.

Is that applicable for Germany? Isn't that the case for Sweden as well? But thats not the case for the US...but then again...illegitimate children can inheirit.

Zonk, Jo of Palatine did an excellent post about alternatives available under German law for this situation. Essentially, Gustav can marry his girlfriend in a religious ceremony that does not have civil standing, she can legally change her name to match his and be all Princess-y, and while their children would not be legitimate, Gustav could adopt any children of the relationship.

Why haven't they done this? Well, just as people are musing here that Gustav doesn't marry so that his parents aren't tossed out of their castle, it's based on no knowledge of the will at all except that which is carefully doled out by professional mouthpieces. No one here knows if that will has stipulations that adoptive children have no inheritance rights. No one here knows if Benedikt and Richard get tossed out if Gustav marries against the will.

I'm sorry that it riles people up here, but this story is not some tragedy or melodrama. Looks like they are having a pretty good time trotting from event to event, dressing up and doing as they please. And - to be blunt - what does it matter than it passes to another branch of the family after Gustav steps out of the canoe? I mean really, if they are enjoying life as it is, why is there all this handwringing about the terrible situation in which they find themselves, unable to marry, sob sob. It's not like they are separated by war or poverty...they are living together and living well. When Gustav dies, it's not like the properties and the cash are going to go to support terrorism in the Amazon - it's going to stay in the family.

I really don't get the angst. Frankly,the will is repulsive but that's judging by current standards. This family has enjoyed the benefits of that money, carefully protected under its terms, for quite some time. Let them enjoy what they have, which is significantly more than a good 99% of the world population. But let's not clutch our hankies and swoon over their tragic conundrum. It's a non-starter.

Thank you NaP....I will revisit those pages.

And for the record, I don't particuarly hear Gustav and Carina whining after the lawsuit...but maybe I am late to the party and the only people saying things about poor Carina are those on this board? and others like i of course.

Not always IVF can help, moreover it has its risks - not all women easily endure the hormonal treatment and some of them are directly contraindicated to undergo it because of medical reasons.

According to NaP, on page 2 of this thread:

The grandfather's will, as Head of the House of Berleberg, applies only to this generation. Only to Gustav. And European courts have found in similar cases where the Head of the House has placed such restrictions, that these restrictions are fully enforceable, since they do not forbid marriage. They are not a human rights violation. All it says is that the wealth moves on.

And I think I have read somewhere else that he didn't win the challenge, but I could have just assumed that he didn't win based on the above.

Does anyone have a true update on the legal challenge?
