Here’s a similar switch, although I didn’t find any examples that indicated that they were really thinking of marrying someone because they were close at hand and therefore not much trouble.

There was a German-Soviet rapproachement established after Hitler became chancelllor in 1933. Ostensibly this was pursued to cover Germany’s back while it rearmed and to circumvent the Versaille treaty limitations. It was also helpful to the Soviets who were struggling with one of their frequent five year plans. It was a marriage of convenients for both.

Ah, thanks. I had searched the site before deciding to submit this, but had forgotten to search the forums.
