29 years old, construction engineer
In Germany for the past 1.5 years
"There were all sorts of new things I had to get used to. For example, what happened the first time we went to the district administration offices ("Landratsamt"). The civil servant asked my wife to sign a form. That was it, we were finished. I said: 'But I haven’t signed it yet.' He told me my wife’s signature was enough. That wouldn’t happen in Syria, the husband is always the one who signs."
