    Example dialogue:


    Мария: Искам да имам голямо семейство. Две деца близнаци - момче и момиче. А ти?

    Иван: Знаеш, че моите родители са разведени. Но аз бих искал да имам стабилен брак. Да бъда баща, да имам много деца и да някой ден да станем баба и дядо.

    Мария: Съжалявам, че твоите родители са се разделили. Когато ние се оженим, ще бъдем добри съпруг и съпруга.

    Иван: Да, така ми се иска. Моите баба и дядо бяха много щастливи заедно. Имаха и златна годишнина.

    Мария: Колко хубаво! Сестра ми е женена от 5 години и е много щастлива също!



    Maria: I want to have a big family. Two children - twins - boy and a girl. And you?

    Ivan: You know that my parents are divorced. I would like to have a stable marriage. I want to be a father, to have a lot of children and some day you and I to be a grandmother and a grandfather.

    Maria: I am sorry that your parents are separated. When we get married, we will be good husband and wife.

    Ivan: Yes, this is what I want. My grandfather and grandmother were really happy together. They even had a golden anniversary.

    Maria: So nice! My sister is married for 5 years and she is also really happy.family members in Bulgarian
