Hungarian couple

You know your girlfriend is Hungarian when…

My wife is hungarian, so I better omit an introduction to this post, otherwise I might get into trouble haha.. Here a list of situations that will confirm that your girlfriend, couple or wife is 150% hungarian and this will be true even if you do not live within hungarian soil.
