I'm an American citizen and my boyfriend is a German citizen. He thinks that if he marries me he'll lose his German passport. is that true?

According to this he'd have to ask the permission of the German government:
Dual citizenship ( Deutsche Staatsangehoerigkeit)
Allowed under following circumstances:
If he/she is an EU or Swiss citizen during naturalization.
If he/she is a refugee and holds a 1951 travel document during naturalization.
where a child born to German parents acquires another citizenship at birth (e.g. based on place of birth, or descent from one parent)
where a naturalized German citizen, or a child born to non-German parents (non-EU or Swiss) in Germany, request and obtain a permission to keep his foreign nationality.
##where a German citizen acquires a foreign nationality with the permission of the German government (e.g. existing relative ties or property in Germany or in the other country## or if the occupation abroad requires domestic citizenship for execution)
I did put the conditions between double hashtags (existing relatives in the other country)
