Sprechen nicht Deutsch? Not with your wife, you don't;
Foreigners who marry a German are allowed to live with their spouse in Germany - if they are able to speak German. The EU Commission views this as a violation of European law.
The most important thing for Asefe Weindlmayr was to move to Munich quickly so she could live with her husband. But even though they are married, moving in with him was by no means an easy task. Weindlmayr wasn't allowed to move to Germany because she didn't speak German.
According to Germany's Residence Act, which came into force in August 2007, men and women who want to reunite with their spouses in Germany have to prove they have a basic understanding of the German language. 
Such as how to say, 'Take out the garbage.'
