The article starts with the information about a church wedding of two lesbians at Hamburg. It reports different reactions by lesbians at Hamburg and Berlin and widely cites the press reactions and anonymous letters to the pastor. The author asks well known christians and politicians for their comments and informs about the “Boston marriage” as the 19th century expression for marriage-like living together of two financially independent women. Roggenkamp extensively quotes the position of Marie Sabine Augstein, a feminist lawer at Munich.
