Dear ricky1418-ga;

Thank you for allowing me an opportunity to answer your interesting
question. There are of course many ways to say many things in every
language so rather than consult one of those online translators (which
are notorious for translating out of context) I consulted someone who
speaks fluent Hungarian. He advised me that the English phrase ?Will
you marry me?? in Hungarian is, ?Hozzám jössz feleségül?? (Pronounced:
?Hozzam yeas feleshaigül?? ? note: the ü is like ?u? in French ?un?).
This gave me the means to begin my search.

To confirm this phrase I searched for it using Google. Sure enough,
this is accurate as seen in these examples:


Álljon meg a nászmenet
(My Best Friend's Wedding)

GOOGLE: ?Hozzám jössz feleségül?

So for example, if your matrimonial candidate happened to be named
Ellen, the question would be ?Ellen, hozzám jössz feleségül?? or
?Hozzám jössz feleségül Ellen??.

I might also add that if you prefer to propose using a more intimate
method, you can say, ?Szeretlek. Légy a feleségem!? (Pronounced:
?Seretlek. Laige a feleshaigem?), which means, ?I love you. Be my

GOOGLE: Szeretlek (I love you in Hungarian)

If you prefer to say, ?Ellen, be my wife? you would say ?Ellen, Légy a
feleségem? or ?Be my wife Ellen?, you would say ?Légy a feleségem,

Below you will find that I have carefully defined my search strategy
for you in the event that you need to search for more information. By
following the same type of searches that I did you may be able to
enhance the research I have provided even further. I hope you find
that my research exceeds your expectations. If you have any questions
about my research please post a clarification request prior to rating
the answer. Otherwise, I welcome your rating and your final comments
and I look forward to working with you again in the near future. Thank
you for bringing your question to us.

Here's an update from my Hungarian speaking source. This is fantastic
but it will undoutedly take some practice on your part!

"I have always asked myself about the qualities I value the most in a
woman. Is it beauty, intelligence, sweetness? I figured that those are
just bonuses. The reality is that in order to be able to live with
someone, you need trust and empathy. I feel that you feel me, and I
trust you with my life. Will you trust me with yours? Will you marry

"Sokszor kérdeztem magamtól mi az, amit az igazi n?ben keresek.
Szépség, értelem, bájosság? Rájötten, hogy ezek csak ráadások. A
valóságban az ezgyüttéléshez bizalom és átérzés kell. Érzem, hogy
érzel és az életemet bízom rád. Bízol-e bennem? Hozzám jössz-e

I recommend you get a Hungarian dictionary and learn the pronumciation
of each of these words in order to be mor eeffective.

lots of translator on the web!  Find one that takes English and
translates to Hungarian.

That was my first, and very obvious, port of call. The minimum charge
to translate 4 words was $150.

tutuzdad-ga. I thought your first response was sufficient for my
needs. Your clarification has exceeded all my expectations and says
everything that I feel for the lady in question. I am learning
Hungarian pronunciation as part of learning to speak  the language.
Obviously I have not yet got to the delicate matters of the heart; so
your contribution will be truly welcome.
Regards and seasons greetings,
