When I was little I always used to pass by this store that said Welding supplies--I miss read it as Wedding supplies--For many years I was horrified and the thought of getting married and having a wedding fearing that I would have to buy saws, blowtorches and other heavy machinery just to get married.
i used to belive u got a certificate when u were married that meant u were given a baby by god
for some reason i made an association between hot air balloon and honey moon.
so till i was at leat 10, i believed everyone going on their honey moon was going floating off in a hotairballoon.
I used to believe that what they called the people getting married were "the bride and broom". I only realized when I was 9 and going to be a jr bridesmaid that the proper term was the "bride and groom".
I used to believe that when you got married you had to choose whether you wanted to be cremated or buried when you died. i used to feel sad that such a happy occassion should be marred by having to think about death. i also worried that i was running out of time to make my decision. (i was about 5 at the time)
I once tred on my fathers wedding ring and was caought by my aunt who then said that I would now never get married becasue of it.
I think my mother had asked me when I was four who I wanted to marry when I grew up. I said, " I don't know any boys, so I guess I'll just marry Jaime (my brother)." She laughed and said I had too much in common with my brother to marry him. I was mad. I thought I had every right to marry my brother.
I used to Believe that your found your girlfriend/boyfriend in school or at least in your school years, you stuck with them all you life got married etc... and if you didn't get one in your school years, you were screwed...
This is actually the belief of my precious little ring bearer.
He was watching a cartoon with his mom in which the little boy got to be the ring bearer. He turns to his mom and quickly replies "LOOK MOM! That's what I get to be and go ROAR!"
Cute little thing thinks he's going to be the ring "BEAR".
I used to believe that you went to this Indian ceremony and you would dance until you danced with your soul mat and when you did you heard a christmas song.
I used to believe that the second a man or woman took off their wedding ring, they were officially not married anymore. :P
When I was little I asked my mom if when you got married you all of a sudden had a baby. My mom said "sorta" and for a while I never wanted to marry becasue I was afraid I would have a baby, and I hated(still do) babies.
When I was younger, I wanted to marry Willie Nelson so I wouldn't have to change my name.
I used to believe that marrying a non-white women is bad because they would not have babies.
When I was little I always thought marriage was one of life's little traps into making your life miserable because I always use to hear my dad say "MARRIAGE IS MISERABLE". LOL. Needless to say him and my mom got divorced lol.
This could also apply to law, but whatever. When i was a kid i thought it was illegal for a woman to smile or show any sign of happiness while she was getting married. I thought this till i was 12. the explanation is that in my culture woman are supposed to be serious at weddings cause theyre leaving there family. I've only been to muslim weddings, so.
When I was five or six, I recall asking my mother about the rings she was wearing. She explained that the rings in question were her wedding rings and that when people are married they wear special rings. Several months later at our cottage I happened upon the rings on the bathroom counter and promtly started to cry - in my mind I somehow figured if you took off those rings you were no longer married.
When I was little, I used to believe that divorce was mandatory, and you were only allowed to be married for a specific period of time. I don't know what I thought happened afterwards, but I remember being in my mother's car in the driveway at the age of 4, listening to a song about everlasting love, and then saying "Yeah, until you get divorced." My mother thought I was being needlessly cynical, but I really thought that was what happened, and that someday in the distant future, my parents would get divorced.
When I was little I used tob believe a brother and sister would always get married but I thought what about a sister and sister or a brother and brother? My parents cleared it out.
When I was little older people were always talking about dumping each other. Now, I knew they were breaking up with each other but I thought they were literally "dumping" each other. They would take a bucket of water and dump it over the other person's head!
