German Law/Gay asylum seeker getting married to straight girl.


I have a friend of mine he seek for asylum with another country but with 2 months he got rejection while he use another country to seek asylum und German government decover that und was given a period of 14 day to leave the country. Now the German now he is coming from Kenya, and him he later accepted he is a kenyan and give another reason from his country to appeal his chances to stay in Germany. He say he was gay and he cannot go back to his contry. Now he has been recieving a visum of 3 month in the same name of all document he process as a riginally kenyan. Now again he want to  get married with his girlfreind but he dont know what to do. Is it possible to get married with a girlfriend without. looking at what he say but he is Straight man.

It's not very consistent, but yes, he can get married to his girlfriend.
Depending on the citizenship and/or immigration status of the girlfriend, he will then receive a residence permit to remain in Germany. He does not need to continue with the asylum proceeding.
