When a man proposes,he gives her a ring. So I used to think that the bride gives the ring to the man so he can put it on her finger when they get married.

When my mom explained to me that the bridal shower is whan the bride is "showered" with gifts, I took it literally. I imagined it would be quite painful for the bride to have a bunch of heavy packages dropped upon her and that her gown would probably get ripped and she'd get all bruised up. I wondered why they didn't just hand the gifts to her, but then I figured this was the kinda of thing they meant they said "There's no such thing as a free lunch."

I used to believe that when women got married, a random man off the street would suddenly propose to her. I asked my mom about that and she said that was right and sometimes the man would even get down on his knee! I found that stupid and was disgusted. I vowed to never get married, and I think that vow will last, but for different reasons, of course...

I used to think that at weddings, the preist would say, "Do you take this woman to be your awfully wedded wife?"

When I was little, I saw a movie where two people went up to a glass wall in a hospital and pointed to a baby and said, "Look! That's our baby!" I thought this meant that people laid out babies in hospitals attached to churches, and after people got married they'd go and pick out their baby next door.

When I was little i thought at weddings a crowd of people would stand outside of a church building and ask another random person to marry them. Then I supposed the best couple would be elected to get married. I have no idea how i came up with this...

hen i was young and far from the concept of babies, i arrived at my own conclusion and even explained to my mom -" in my opinion there must be something in the wedding neckband(in hindu culture we use the neckband instead of the ring) which actually causes the woman to bear babies. otherwise why on earth would women become pregnant only after they are married ".
my mom just laughed diminishing my enthusiasm to publish my findings!

I asked my Mum what a honeymoon was for. She said it was so the bride and groom could get to know each other. I therefore thought that when you got married the couple didn't know each other.

I thought that children were not allowed to go to baby showers or wedding showers because it was an adults only event where they literally took showers together.

When I was about 4, my mum informed me that when women get married they have to change their names. Obviously she didn't explan very well and I went round for weeks telling people "When I get married my name is going to be Sarah so you had better remember it!"

When I was little and asked my mom what adultery was, she said it meant that a grownup ran away from home. So, for the longest time, I thought that parents who ran away together, abandoning their kids, were committing adultery.

i used to believe all girls were really princesses and one day our prince would come and marry us. i wish it was that easy because real love stories dont have happy endings because real love doesnt end.

I used to think that couples shared their first kiss when the priest said "You may kiss the bride". It was weird because I had seen several movies where people had kissed and weren't married.

For several years after I first heard the term "bridal shower", I envisioned that it meant putting a bride, in her bridal gown, in the shower and turning the water on until she was soaked. I supposed she would be lucky if her gown completely dried out in time for the wedding.

I used to beleive that it was illegal for a black person and a white person to get married, up until 1st grade when I saw a sing-a-long video in Music class and the hosts were a white woman and a black man, so I assumed they were married. When I went home I said to my mom "Today in school we saw a movie where a white woman and a black man were married. Isn't that illegal?" My mother then told me that that's perfectly legal.
