- A Hungarian mayor
- marries 18-year-old mom.
- The two celebrated their day with local people cheering for them.
- The 78-year-old was elected as mayor four years ago.
The entire town turned out recently when a Hungarian mayor born during the Second World War wed his teenage girlfriend, who had reportedly just celebrated her 18th birthday.
Also present at the wedding was the bride’s four-year-old son from a previous relationship with a local man in his thirties.
The teenage mum, who was not named, walked side by side in the town of Kunhegyes, Hungary, with her veteran politician husband-to-be Andras Szabo, 78.
The streets were also lined with cheering locals as they made their way to the registry office for the marriage to be formalised. Although some local media contacted the mayor for comment, he declined to say anything, and likewise, the mother of the teenage girl also refused to say anything about her daughter’s decision.

Szabo was elected mayor four years ago, having already played a leading role in the community for over a decade. He had moved to the area as a young man after being born in another part of the country in 1944.
Speculation was rife in the town as to what persuaded the teenager to marry a man four times her age. He was previously married to a woman who was also much younger. But the couple separated apparently last year.
