I used to believe that you got married right after you finished high school or college.

I remember playing with my Barbie dolls while our babysitter was taking care of me when I was about 5 years old. Barbie and Ken were getting married and I recited the vows for them. "Do you Barbie, take Ken to be your awful wedded husband?"

My babysitter laughed and said "No, Brooke, it's 'lawful' not 'awful.'" I refused to believe her and continued to insist that it was, indeed, "awful".

When my sister and I were small (younger than 5), in the house where we lived we had one of those giant glass water jars -- you know the ones, that in the 70's people used to put peacock feathers in; it was about 2 feet tall, maybe a foot and a half wide. My mother told us that it used to be her house; that, before she met our father and married him, she'd been a genie, and had lived in that bottle. She told us how it had been decorated, with lamps and silk cushions and so forth; it had evidently been very comfortable. She'd decided to become human so she could get married and have children, but she liked to keep the jar around to remember her old life by.

i used to think marriage was way babies are made, but that women can also make them on their own (that is why there is such thing as single mothers)

When saying wedding vows instead of saying "do you take this man/woman to be your lawfully wedded husband/wife", I thought it said "awfully wedded"

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'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.

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 ^^;;
