>Mixed marriages – #452

>Mixed marriages are tricky things at the best of times, but sporting events tend to apply unusual stress to any relationship.

We don’t have a problem at our place – New Zealand’s soccer team has only ever qualified for the World Cup once (in 1978), the All Blacks will never play Germany at rugby and the most recent hockey encounter made a whole column inch on the third page of the sports section. (6-2 for Germany, if you must know.)

But when it comes to Euro 2008, you bound to run into problems.

Here’s a classic example – German wife, Austrian husband, deciding match last night to determine who makes it into the quarterfinals.

Someone slept on the sofa last night, that’s for sure….

Postscript: Germany squeezed by with 1:0.
