.- A politician who is running to be leader of the Social Christian Union party in Bavaria has proposed that marriages be allowed to expire after seven years.

Gabriele Pauli surprised residents by saying prosing that marriages be allowed to expire after seven years if couples choose not to remain together.

“This way one would only commit to an established period and would have to actively renew the vows in order to continue,” the twice-divorced Pauli said.

The proposal is part of her agenda as a candidate to lead the Social Christian Union party in Bavaria.

The post was made vacant when Edmund Stoiber resigned in the wake of a revolt in the party led by Pauli.  Afterwards, Pauli caused controversy by appearing in a magazine as some strange sort of dominatrix clad in elbow-length leather gloves.
