At last! someone figures it out! i've been spouting off for decades about this, though i'd put the limit at 4 rather than 7 years.


Politician proposes seven-year limit on marriages

A conservative German politician has proposed making marriage contracts expire after seven years, with the option to renew for those not feeling the proverbial itch.

"I propose that marriages lapse after seven years," Gabriele Pauli told reporters in Munich, the capital of the largely Catholic southern state of Bavaria.

"This would mean that one will only commit for a fixed period and will actively have to renew your vows if you still want to continue."

Ms Pauli, 50, has been divorced twice.

The proposal is part of her manifesto as she prepares to contest the leadership of Bavaria's governing party, the ultra-conservative Christian Social Union (CSU), next week.

The CSU is the sister party of Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats and the leadership is being vacated by a strategic ally of the chancellor, Edmund Stoiber, who has also been premier of Bavaria for more than a decade.

Mr Stoiber in January agreed to step down at the end of September after a party rebellion led by Ms Pauli.

Shortly afterward he announced his decision, Ms Pauli caused a stir by posing for magazine pictures as a dominatrix wearing long latex gloves.

Very interesting! 7 years, just exactly the same as he told me, "My child, 7 years was enough; 3 years felt like in heaven and the rest in hell." grin

May you rest in peace, monsieur le professeur.

But, ewww, he remained single till he passed away.
