Love and courtship in the village in ‘the old days’ – Kóka Rozália’s column. One of the stories is about a young man from the village of Istensegíts in Bukovina. Before he turned 17, he and the neighbor girl fell in love and she got pregnant. The boy’s parents wouldn’t let him marry. By the time he returned from the military – his girl had really “been around” so he lost interest. He went off to work in Moldavia, met a Slovak girl and wanted to get married. The people in his village thought he should marry the girl who had his baby instead. When it came out that she had been so unfaithful and then lied about it – he was allowed to marry the Slovak girl. Selected from the book: Egy asszon, két asszon.
