When I was little, I believed that when you got a divorce it was just like a wedding, only you walked backwards down the aisle, the bride wore black, and the groom wore a reverse tuxedo.
I used to beleive that divorce court was when two people went to court and after stating their cases the judge pressed a huge red button and lights and sounds would scream and flash and when the smoke settled the two people would be DIVORCED!
I used to think that you weren't supposed to kiss someone on the lips until you married them and if you kissed them on the lips before you married them, you were a vile sinner and would go to hell when you died.
i once asked my aunt when i was little if husbands came with names or did you have to name them when you got them
I used to think the f-word meant to get a divorce because of the following twisted little logic trail: I'd once overheard a kid in a public bathroom asking her mum what that word meant; after much hesitation her mum answered that it was "something that married people do". Well, I already knew it was a bad word - and thus surely must mean a bad thing - and what could be worse for married people to do than to get a divorce?
when i was about five it was my grandparents' wedding anniversary. My mum told me that it meant that they'd been married for forty years. I thought she meant that they got married again every year.
I used to believe that once you get married a baby automatically gets in to the womans stomach!
When I was about 5 or 6, I used to believe that when a girl wanted to get married, she would go out in a wedding dress, and propose to any man passing by whom she fancied!
I used to think that "have sex" meant "get married". You can imagine how surprised all of my extended family was when I annouced that my Dad and Stepmom were having sex!
I thought that King and Queen were titles like Mr and Mrs that you could use when you were in a royal family. So when a prince and princess got married, they'd automatically become King and Queen So-and-So.
I ised to think that people had to see the movie JAWS before they got married as a test to see how much fear they could handle.
I used to believe my parents were brother and sister, and that everybody's parents were brother and sister.
When I was young I used to think that if your parents yelled the word "Divorce" at each other at the same time, that they were divorced. I remember freaking out one night at dinner when my parents were talking about a friends' divorce and praying to God they wouldn't say the word divorce at the same time!
My aunt got married when she was fresh out
of High School. She got married to a guy one year younger than her and I thought if you married someone older than you that the older person would be be the one who payed the bills, cleaned the house, and do every thing.
My father married my step-mother when I was 9 years old and I got a day off school to attend the wedding. When I went back to school and told all my friends about the wedding I thought it was really mean that everyone else's parents didn't invite them to thier weddings. It didn't occur to me that other people's parents were married before the children were born. I just thought I was lucky cause my parents let me go to the rockin' party they had after the wedding.
I used to think that when a couple got married and went on their honeymoon, they took a vacation to the moon.
when i was five i thought i would just marry my brother, that it would be the simpilist and best thing; i wouldn't have to change my name, and i already knew his family. i was devestated when someone else told me (in disgust) that he was my "BROTHER and i COULDN'T marry my BROTHER!"
When I was about six or seven, I was watching Disney's Cinderella. In the end, you saw Cinderella and the prince riding off in their carrige smooching away. When I asked mom where they were going, my mom said that they were going on their honey moon. This confused me. Why would they go to the moon? I assumed that a honey moon meant that the newly-wed couple were going to get blasted off to the moon. I also thought that the moon was made of honey. I couldn't wait till I got married because I always wanted to go to the moon!
I used to believe that when a man and woman got married, the woman not only changed her last name but her FIRST name also. So I always used to ask my mom what her name used to be. She'd say her maiden name..then I'd say "no, no, your First name! What did it used to be?"
Once while in the car with my parents we passed a car with the woman passenger sitting real close to the male driver. My dad said that meant they were on thier honey-moon. For years (and I mean YEARS) afterward I always believed that if a man and woman were sitting right next to each other in the car that they WERE on thier honey-moon. Like it was a honey-moon rule to sit like that. It was only until very lately that I realized my father was actually being sarcastic.
