I have another one. When I was a little bit older, right after I found out that kindergarten wasn't a mass-wedding...I began to form, not really a crush, but what I thought was going to be a forced marriage. Everyday my family would go over to this couple's house named "Aunt Kathy and Uncle Jon's". Then they would force me and this little terror named "Scottie" to play together. It wasn't until during my kindergarten year that I figured out that Aunt Kathy was my mom's sister and Uncle Jon was her husband. It wasn't until 2nd grade that I found out that me and Scottie weren't going to be forced to marry, but that he was my cousin!
When I was about 2-4 I thought that kindergarten was a mass-wedding. Since I never really had any life experience, I only knew guys on tv and my family members. I would always walk around saying "I'm gonna marry Ronald McDonald and Barney!" My family always asked me if I thought that was mean to cheat on two people I loved so much. I never really figured out what they meant until I was in 4th grade... Little kids are sad...
When I was about four I was a flower girl in my uncles wedding. The wedding party was having a hard time trying to convince me to go down the aisle with the ring bearer because I felt I wasn't ready to. After some coaxing I stepped into the aisle and realized that it was, as I had feared, MY wedding! I knew it all along! I was not going to let them force me to marry him! I didn't like the ring bearer at all. I kicked him in the junk and screamed "I won't do it!"
When I was young I assumed that you were suppose to marry your father. This worried me because I have several sisters. I wondered which of us would get to marry him.
When I was little, I thought that when you got married you decided if you wanted a kid or not and the minister or pastor or whatever would give it to you then. and I was deathly worried that I wouldn't be able to make up my mind and would want one after I already said no!
As a child, my cousin was so insistant that I would marry him when we were adults. He used to calmly say, "Yes, we will," and I'd yell, "NO, WE WON'T!!!!" All of the adults in our family would ignore us and never try to stop him, so I believed they were all in on a plot to force me to marry my cousin when we were of age.
I believed that two people couldn't get married unless they were the same religion and the man was older than the woman.
when I was younger, I used to believe that my parents got married and were trying to keep it secret from me. (they never got married) One time I found a prom picture and swore it was they're wedding picture. I was mad at them for not telling me.
i grew up watching ppl thankin god after a couple was blessed wid a baby...i nvr cud relate the connection between marriage n god n kid...i used to bemused wid how come an invisible god comes to know bout marriages n blesses ppl wid kids n sometimes even before marriage...
I've always had problems telling the difference between dreams and reality, and no matter how many times my parents told me that I wasn't born then I swore that I remembered them getting married. I thought they just didn't want me to know.
I onced asked my Dad about how he chose my mum (to marry). I said " Dad were they all standing in a line?" It took a while for him to work out that I thought that beauty contests were where men chose their wives.
my brother told me he diddnt want to get married when he was about 6 or 7. i told him men had to get married and he believed me for a year until he asked my mom why men had to get married
I forget when It was but one day my mom was talking to my Aunt about a survey where it asked their 'Maiden name'. I thought that meant their 'lady name' and took the survey from my mom and read what she had wrote. Then I erased it and wrote 'Mommy'. She didn't notice and sent the survey in! When I told my mom that she got her maiden name wrong and I corrected it, she freaked and told me what a Maiden name stood for. Oopsy ^^;;
when i was about five my step dad and my mom were going on a honey moon, it had been my first time hearing the words honey moon, so i asumed it was a moon made of honey, i knew honey was a liquid so i was in fear of them drowning
When I was little I was afraid to get married. I thought that if you were to get married you would get pregnant [if you were a girl of course].I'm not good when it comes to pain, no one is. But I was paranoid.
When my younger brother was little he reguarly told my mum that he wanted to marry her. So would that mean my mum would be my sister-in-law or my brother would be my step dad?
When I was younger, I used to beleive that you have to be older than the girl to get married. I was mad because I liked this girl (I was in kindergarten I think) and I said I wanted to marry her and I couldn't becuase I was younger than her.
I used to think that a bridal shower involved pouring water on the bride, or sticking her in the shower and turning on the water. I could never figure out why anyone would want to have one.
I used to think that when a couple went on a honeymoon, it was always to a quaint inn or cabin in the mountains. I'm not sure where I got this belief, since my parents went to Toronto on their honeymoon. I also thought that the couple stayed dressed up (i.e. the bride always wore the dress, and the groom always wore the tux) for the entire honeymoon.
When I was little, like 3-4 years old, I thought that I had to marry my brother when I grew up. I was upset, because I didn't want to marry my brother, but I realized that there was nothing I could do about it, that was just the way things were, so I resigned myself to my fate.
