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 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!

I used to think that when you married, a seed would go through you at the altar, giving you the kids you had.

My mom later convinced me otherwise.

Where do the seeds go, then?

My daughter asked me what my husband and I were like when we were little and were brother and sister. She thought that her and her brother would grow up and be husband and wife.

When I was a little girl, adults would say things like when you grow up and choose a husband...
I visualized one day, an older me inspecting a long line of prospective husbands. A distressing prospect since at 6 or 7 I could not imagine what I would want in a husband, even why I would even want one.

When I first saw pictures of my parent's wedding, I noticed that the flower girl was, oddly enough, not me. I got very upset over this, and DEMANDED to know why I wasn't the flower girl. I hadn't realized that it would be a few years before I was to be born.

When me and a friend were in Kindergarten, we both liked our two best guy friends. We decided that we would get married to both of these boys, and each of us would get one of the boys for a month, and then we would switch every other month.

I used to think that you couldn't kiss someone until you got married. I thought that when the bride and groom kissed that was their first kiss. I was 7 years old.

When you get married you walk down the aisle, church doors to alter. I used to think that to get a divorce you had to do the exact opposite, walk back down the aisle from the alter to the doors.

Until the age of 9, I used to believe that marriage was a fancy church wedding that commenced in the bride and groom HAVING SEX in front of everyone. No wonder why I never wanted to get married.
