Germany and France are a couple tied together by fate.
In the beginning, they were always at each others' throats. At last, they realized they weren't so different. So they stopped fighting and tied themselves together through — what else? — money.
On today's show, the story of France and Germany — the relationship on which the fate of Europe depends.
