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.
I used to believe a husband was a wife and vice versa, because i thought the word husband was prettier than the word wife and so should go with the prettier person (the female)
I used to believe that a husband had to be 6 months to 1 year older than his wife. If it were less than 6 months, or more than one year, they couldn't get married. I was very confused one day when one of my friends told me that her dad was 9 years older than her mom.
When I was a kid, I don't understand what they mean by saying "marriage between relatives is dangerous" because all of the marriages are between relatives in my family. Mom is married with dad, grandpa is married with grandma...
When I was younger , I used to think that once you fell in love , you'd immediately get married and right after the wedding , the bride would be rushed to the hospital and out popped a baby! I think it had something to do with a movie I watched ? I'll never know.
Once I learned about the traditional wedding(the one with the tuxedos,white gowns and kissing,not to mention the usual wedding music) I decided that divorces were simular. THe couple who didn't like eachother anymore would still wear their wedding outfits and when the music played,that they walked backward until they came to the priest/judge and then he would pronounce them unmarried.
When we were 4, me and my friend Peter decided, like small children do, that we would have a wedding. Everyone had to wear bright pink if they were a girl or blue if they were a boy, and had to bring us presents. Peter went dressed as a cowboy, complete with toy shotgun (shotgun wedding? :), and I wore my mum's pink nightdress and pushed a pram full of plastic spiders. (our children)
When we got to the bit about actually "getting married", Peter said
"Well, she can marry me if she likes, but I'm not marrying her!" My parents burst out laughing and I smacked him one.
(Since then his opinion has changed..he he)
When I was younger, I believed that getting married was something that everyone had to do when they got to a certain age (like buying a house) and that when adults had boyfriends or girlfriends, it was because they had gotten divorced and needed someone around while they looked for a new spouse and they were going to get rid of that boy/girlfriend as soon as they found one.
I used to think people had to have the same birthday in order to get married... Guess I was thinking of an anniversary. Imagine my dismay back in grade school when the only other person there that shared my birthday was my best friend's little sister (I'm female, too...)
Once when I was very little, I told an older cousin that I wanted to marry my brother when I grew up. I believed I could do this -- I didn't know anything about incest at the time. When my cousin told me that I couldn't marry my brother because we were part of the same family, I yelled, "Shows what you know! My mommy and daddy are married, and THEY'RE part of our family, too!"
I used to think that when 2 people kissed at the alter, when they got married, that that was the sign to God, to send children
I used to believe that being a bride was something I could be when I grew up because during career day with my sixth grade buddy when I was in Kindergarten I told her that that's what I wanted to be. She told me that I couldn't be that because everyone gets to be a bride.
When I was about 7 or 8 my grandmother got divorced. I used to watch Happy Days a lot at that point so one day I went up to my grandmother and told her she was "Hot to Trot". She wasn't impressed. I had NO idea what it really meant or why she was mad at me.
when i was young i believed that gay men got married to gay women!
