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

The article says that Georg Friedrich works in Rostock for a company that makes patents for education. Sorry to be dense, but what does that mean?

Tilia C. 01-22-2011 11:53 AM

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.
