This picture was taken on my 80th birthday in 1996, on a boat in Budapest. Our whole family is in it. My wife, Zsuzsa, is standing beside me. The little girl is one of my granddaughters and next to her is my son G. The party went really well, all of us really had a great time.

I had stayed at the same summer holiday home with Zsuzsi Acs, my fourth wife, in 1952 - we got to know each other on the way there. Then, in 1981, when the age difference - 18 years - was of less importance we became closer. We married on paper in 1988, but we have been together unofficially since 1982. We are very happy together and have a big family around us. Zsuzsa also has a daughter and two grandchildren. We go to the swimming pool three times a week, and if we can, we travel for winter and summer vacations to spas in Hungary. At home, we read a lot and meet our friends.
