“How did he propose to you?”
“We had been together for a while and at some point he asked me if I considered to be his wife. I told him I considered it but I never really said yes. Somehow we got married anyways.”
“Is he romantic with you?”
“Ohhh.. very! Like for example before we came to Amsterdam he bought me two locks with our names on it. One to chain to a bridge in Amsterdam and one to chain to a bridge in Budapest. I am a lucky girl.”
