A well placed German news-media source tells us that Angela Merkel’s marriage appears to be on the rocks.
During the campaign, much was made of her “dour” husband, who did not enjoy the campaign trail. It was reported that he “hates publicity and wants nothing to do with her job.”
However, with his job now based out of Berlin, the couple are rarely seen in public together, and are reportedly living in seperate houses now. The rumour has apparently been circulating the German media and political class for some time now, but has not been reported on in the German media.
