Simon Mignolet has been together with Jasmien Claes since his childhood years. They are already married and are currently living in Liverpool.
Jasmien Claes has a Master of Laws degree and is working as a paralegal. In 2015 they got married in Sint-Truiden where Mignolet grew up. Jasmien Claes is from Zepper. When they left Town Hall a guard of honour was waiting for them, composed of young football players dressed in the yellow and blue of their club.
Another special feature of their wedding where the goalkeeper’s shoes: They were made by shoe manufacturer Ambiorix from Tongeren but designed by Mignolet himself. ,,For the occasion Mignolet also brought out his inner fashion designer. That is, he designed the shoes he would be wearing for his marriage himself. They are shoes from black lacquered calf leather with on them black accents in suede.” The couple had a party for three hundred guests.
Before Mignolet left for England he was still living in his parent’s home: ,,I will have to learn how to cook, do laundry and iron clothes for this transfer (laughing). Back home my parents take care of everything but I am 22 and it’s time to go live on my own. If I go abroad my girlfriend Jasmien won’t come along in the first year. She still has one year to go in Law School and has to finish that education no matter what. She will come and visit me often enough”, the goalie told back then.
Mignolet himself studied Political and Social Sciences in Leuven, but whether or not he finished this is the question: ,,I have exams in June but I still have to buy all my books and start studying. I don’t even know which ones are the hardest courses as I haven’t been to class this year. At the moment I am a football player first and only then a student. If I move abroad I will consult with the university about possibilities of finishing my education in spite of it.. I have five more exams in my Bachelor-years before I can start my Master-year.”
