1. The Hungarian population has a much lower divorce rate than Americans. This is likely because married couples have clearly defined roles: the man is the man and the woman the women. Also, there is no economic benefit to divorce your spouse. After you marry a Hungarian you become a part of “The Family”, which is tight-knit, to say the least. This brings on a whole family community of marriage counselors, business partners and close friendships. This familial cohesion can support and mitigate a difficulties in marriage.

2. Hungary never had a feminist movement because women were always respected by and equals to men. The direct result of this is they never lost their femininity and believe it to be “powerful” to look, act and walk like a real woman.

3. Hungarian women are raised to be excellent and loyal mothers and wives. Most Hungarians feel it is their duty and actually enjoy taking excellent care of their husbands and children. They are extremely hard workers and will protect their family at any cost. They are best described as having an Italian-like loyalty to their loved ones. They don’t gossip and prefer to have a few close friends rather than many superficial friends.

4. Hungarian women are not so well-known by Americans yet, but are well-known throughout Europe, and especially Germany, as being the most beautiful and intelligent women in the world. German men are well-aware of this and many travel to Hungary to find a wife. Based on our studies, German men lack desire for German women for the same reason American men lack desire for their counterparts: lack of femininity. Hungarians are also, on average, much thinner and healthier than Americans or Germans. This adds to the “treasured spouse” effect.

5. Unlike American or Russian women, Hungarian women generally choose their mates based not on shallow characteristics like money or appearance, but rather personality, intelligence and health. In contrast, it’s fairly unusual for an extremely beautiful American women to be seen with an Average Joe, but quite common in Hungary. Due to the high woman to man population ratio, even the most beautiful of women find themselves lucky to find a suitable mate.

6. Hungarian women are far more sexually open and secure with their bodies than American women. This is mainly because of their culture. It’s not uncommon for Hungarian parents to let their children up to the age of ten to roam naked freely around the backyard or the beach . Sex is considered a fun and enjoyable topic of discussion rather than taboo. Marriage with a sexually uninhibited wife contributes to a more rewarding marriage. To Hungarians, the female body is something to behold, not hide. Don’t be surprised to find your Hungarian wife trotting around the house in the nude or her wanting to have a serious kiss in public! They generally prefer to wear classy but sexy clothes and most like to wear high-heels in public rather than shoes or sandals. Tight jeans are catching on but most still prefer short skirts or elegant sun dresses.

7. Hungarian women generally view American men as “exotic” and “intelligent” rather than holding the “rich” or “vulgar” stereotypes found in Western Europe.

8. There are virtually no religious constraints on Hungarian women regarding marriage and most will happily conform to your religion, whatever that may be. However, don’t expect her to believe anything. Hungarians are natural skeptics and take every non-proven myth with a grain of salt.

9. Hungarian women are used to having a much harder life than Americans and have adapted to hard work, low income and an appreciation for the simple things in life. Having a “survivalist” spouse/ally can be a great asset to your family during economic hardship, disaster or civil unrest.

10. Hungarian women still have old-world traditional values about taking care of the family, home and generally are highly trained cooks, scoffing at pre-made and frozen T.V dinners as being the “lazy woman’s food”.


1. Having a second home in Europe.

2. Unlike Russia and Ukraine, Hungary is a member of the EU and a strong ally of the U.S.. Just as your Hungarian wife can easily gain U.S. citizenship, you can also gain EU citizenship-giving you travel and work access to all of Western, Central and Eastern Europe. An EU passport also gives you free travel access to Ukraine and Russia, two countries that require stringent and costly entry visas for Americans.

3. Expanding your business ties to all of Europe. Hungarians are highly respected in the European community and are considered “heroes” to Germans, whom they gave free refugee status during the Eastern German Iron Curtain era. Germans and French are more likely to trust and conduct business with Hungarians than Italians, Russians or Ukrainians.

4. Having a Hungarian wife gives you direct access to her wonderful language, culture and food.

5. Bilingual children. Hungarian is an ancient and beautiful language. Most Hungarian women will insist on talking to and teaching your children in her mother tongue. Children can easily become fluent in both languages which will give them broadened opportunity later in life…having access to higher Hungarian education, etc. Many studies have shown bi-cultural/bi-lingual children have higher IQs and higher life-success rates than average children.

6. Hungary permits dual citizenry. Children of a Hungarian parent are automatically granted citizenship status regardless of where the child is born. Again this gives your child free travel and work access throughout Europe and America when they grow up. Hungary provides free and excellent higher educationto its citizens.

7. Hungarian women are “savers” rather than “spenders” and prefer to invest rather than holding or saving paper currencies. This is a result of the extremely high hyperinflationary period in Hungary during the 1940s where the Hungarian Pengo’s value evaporated literally overnight. Most have never owned a credit card or acquired any kind of debt and are pretty suspicious of debtors and banks in general. They prefer to use cash for purchases. Most Hungarians prefer to save up then purchase a home, rather than obtaining a loan.

8. Hungarian women are encouraged to seek a higher levels of education than American women and a high percentage acquire professional degrees and training. Having a highly educated and/or professionally trained spouse increases your family’s chances of economic freedom or can act as a safety net in times of economic stress.

9. Hungarian women are statistically much better drivers than American women. This is mostly due to more stringent driving training and testing before obtaining a license. You will rarely see them using their cell phone while driving.

10. Hungarian women, having similar values and aspirations to Americans, will adapt to the American life much easier than their Eastern European neighbors in Russia and Ukraine. For instance, Hungarians smile, “get jokes”, kid around, laugh, cry and show expressions similarly to American women. Russian and Ukrainian women can have a hard time adapting to these simple Western traits and can seem overly serious to Americans, putting potential strains on your social life. There is a fairly large and welcoming Hungarian-American community in the Seattle area called the Hungarian American Association, which will help your wife integrate and make friends.



  1. Being a Hungarian-born woman myself living in the US, I am utterly surprised at No. A/6. This must be the sad result of the oppression of religion during the 44 years of communist regime in Hungary. Before that the Hungarian woman, well educated or not, was basically modest in dress, speech and behavior.
