The life of Renée Sintenis gave rise to all sorts of speculation. In 1917 she married the 13 years older typographer Emil Rudolf Weiß (1875-1942), who created the so-called White Writings Fracture (1913), Antiqua (1928), Gothic (1936) and Round Gothic (1937). With her friends, the art dealer Alfred Flechtheim, Rainer Maria Rilke and Joachim Ringelnatz, she moved through trendy restaurants, she stood for a women's act model for the sculptor Georg Kolbe. After the death of her husband, she lived together with her partner and later estate manager Magdalena Goldmann (August 19, 1900 – February 2, 1981) in Innsbrucker Straße No. 23. The two found their last rest in a common grave in the forest cemetery in Dahlem – with a grave inscription in the White Antiqua.
