Margot Käßmann, the first female bishop of the territorial church of Hannover, informed the church senate that she and her husband are divorcing. Her husband is also a pastor and service in the church headquarters of the territorial church of Kurhessen-Waldeck in Kassel. The church of Hannover is the largest Lutheran church in Germany. The church senate has expressed its support for the Bischöfin. You may read about it in German here.
If I remember correctly, her roots were in the SELK–the sister church of LC-MS.
