Augsburg (AP) - Uwe Ochsenknecht (64) advises couples on a simple trick to determine whether there is too much routine and getting used to the relationship.
«I have to ask myself the simple question: would I have treated my partner the way I treat him now on the day I met him? Many would probably have to say no, »said the actor of the« Augsburger Allgemeine ». «There are so many interesting things that you can do together, so life is not enough. It is also important not to lose respect for the other. You can't get used to each other. »
Ochsenknecht can be seen on Friday (January 24, 8:15 p.m. in the first) in the ARD film "Your last will can do it!" Together with Heiner Lauterbach. In this constellation, they both became known in Doris Dörrie's comedy “Men” 35 years ago. They also played together in the hit film “Welcome to the Hartmanns” in 2016.
This time Ochsenknecht represents a journalist and Lauterbach a public prosecutor. When her wife opened his will, the two different characters found that they had been married to the same woman for 20 years without knowing it. And then, in her last will, she also decreed that her ashes should be scattered in the sea - by both men together.
In the "Augsburger Allgemeine", Ochsenknecht described his friendship with Lauterbach as one of the few in the film and television industry: "We have been in contact since we were in the mid-1980s, as far as possible. We respect each other very much and are there for each other. When we were shooting, we were having dinner together again. That's nice. Such a friendship is rare in our industry. ”He can reveal that although there are no plans to continue with“ men ”, something is in the air:“ We are planning something. Looks pretty good that it will take place. »
