In a ruling Germany's highest court has decided that German men who use secret paternity tests to find out if they are the father of a child can't use the results in a lawsuit unless the mother gave the consent for the test.
I guess I'm not the only one who is confused by this ruling. A man who has a scientifically valid prove that he is not the father of a child still may have to pay alimony for decades?
No surprise that Germany has such a low birth rate (of 1,3 children per woman)...
