Szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu writes that the Pécs-decentrum Cultural Association studied a very interesting question at their club night. They asked foreign men, living in Pécs, about the situation of Hungarian women. They interviewed an Iranian economist, a Dominican international jurist-historian, a Polish linguist and a Dutch historian of art- architectural entrepreneur, who all have Hungarian wives.
According to foreign men, Hungarian women are under great pressure. A lot of times they are left alone in the upbringing of their children and doing housework, they spend little on their own needs and they don’t get enough help in running errands.
The Polish husband said that he was shocked at first when he realised that many women take up their husband’s name with a “-né” posterior constituent.
“I was shocked. A Hungarian woman is either the daughter of her father or the wife of a man. The next shock came at the birth of one of my children. After the birth, I, as the father, got a certificate signed by the head physician, head nurse and the obstetrician for being brave and doing a great job. Tragic!”
The Dominican husband experienced that Hungarian women serve their sons and husbands too much, sometimes even adult men have their mothers attend to them by cooking, cleaning, washing up etc. He also noticed that, although they ask for both parents’ telephone numbers in nursery schools and schools, if there is a problem they only call the mother. “One time I even brought the topic up in the school and told them that I wanted to practice my parental rights and to please call me sometimes if they have something to say.”
“It’s staggering that the majority of Hungarian men leave the upbringing of their children completely up to the mothers. This is bad for exactly three people: the mother, who has to spend all of her time with the children and only has time to do housework in the evening. It’s also bad for the father, who misses out on a lot of amazing things if he doesn’t care for his children. And, of course, it’s bad for the children who need the affection and care of both their parents” said the Dutch husband.
The Iranian husband emphasized that Hungarian women are left alone.
They have to solve all of the problems alone while an Iranian wife gets a lot of help: “if the mother can’t take care of the child there comes the babysitter, if she’s busy, there comes another one.”
HUNGARIAN WOMEN ARE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL
According to statistics Hungarian women, among women in other EU countries, almost spend the least amount of money on themselves. Also in the EU, Hungarian women’s self-esteem is the lowest. The foreign men asked at the club night advise Hungarian women to be proud of their virtues and keep their kindness and openness, but don’t keep their sons in the mama hotel. Teach them to look after themselves and how to be a caring future father who respects women.
