Former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl, 78, has married 43-year-old economist Maike
Former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl, 78, has married 43-year-old economist Maike Richter, Kohl's office announced on Tuesday.

"We are very happy," the statement quoted the couple as saying.

The wedding took place on May 8 in a Heidelberg hospital where Kohl has been undergoing treatment for a fractured skull after a fall at his home in Ludwigshafen, western Germany, in late February.

Kohl served as chancellor from 1982 to 1998 and was a key player in Germany's reunification.

Richter, who works at the Economy Ministry, helped Kohl write his memoirs. She had reportedly taken leave from her job to sit with her partner in hospital.

Their relationship was made public four years after Kohl's first wife, Hannelore, committed suicide in 2001 at the age of 68 after years of suffering from a rare allergy to light.
