I was about 6ish, sitting in (Catholic) church, listening to an Old Testament reading where I swore it implied that is was okay for a married couple to have one “affair,” but after that, no more. That’s not all – I then believed that an “affair” was when your parents argued amongst each other. Imagine my surprise on hearing what “affair” really meant and the Church's true feelings on this subject.

When I was little I used to think that a golden retriever was a type of person involved in a wedding - like a ringbearer, best man, maid of honor, etc. The reason why I believed this was because I had seen a Charlie Brown TV special in which Snoopy the dog was getting married (to another dog). In the show, Snoopy ends up not getting married because the bride ran off with a golden retriever (a guest at the wedding). I just interpreted it as the bride running off with the best man or something like that. I believed this one until I was about 8.

I believed that if/when a married person removed their wedding band it meant that they were then divorced. I shed so many tears when my mom took off her band to do the dishes one day! It took awhile for her to get to the bottom of the tears, but we sorted it out. Whew!

I used to belive that you couldn't get married to someone you knew, because cousins and siblings couldn't marry, and the groom couldn't see the bride before the wedding.

When I was young, around 5 yrs or so, I was sure that a woman's name would change to "Mary" because I had heard a woman changes her name when she gets married, and well, getting "MARYed" was what it was all about!!
I remembered loudly arguing this fact with several wedding guests while attending cousin's reception, screaming, "her name is NOT Cindy any more, it's MARY!!"

My parents happen to have the same birthday. All through elementary school, I thought you could only marry someone who had the same birthday as you. I was crushed when I discovered the boy I liked in fifth grade didn't have the same birthday as me!

When I was 2 or 3 years old I was informed that one day I would have to marry a boy--well I was already into my "boys have chooties" phase and was horrified (exactly the response my family was looking for). Being independent and determined to find a solution I wandered off to think this through. About an hour later I reappeared and delcared that I knew who I would marry....my brother, 'cause he was the best boy I knew. No one bothered to explain why they were all laughing....

My cousin used to believe that honeymoon was actually a country. So when newlyweds went on their honeymoon, they would go to this same country.

I didn't know that when you got married on tv, that you weren't actually married. I always thought that the actors were confusing God terribly because how was he supposed to know that it was all pretend.

As a kid I believed that "HONEYMOON" is the name of a country where married people go. I tried searching for a place named "HONEYMOON" in my atlas book and even though I could not find it I thought the place was so beautiful that it was kept a secret until you get married. I used to write "HONEMOON" under the letter "H" while playing (Name, Place, Animal, Thing.)I also believed that this place was famous because the "moon" must look more beautiful from there and the country was really prosperous because you could find "honey" in abundance over there.

When I was about 7 years of age, I attended my cousins wedding. After the wedding, at the reception, an announcement was made to 'toast' the bride and groom. Being a hungry kid, for hours afterwards and then for a further few years, I often wondered what happened to the plates of 'hot buttered toast' that I assumed accompanied the 'toasting' of the newly wed couple!!!!!

Going to church as a child and hearing the vicar reading the banns of marriage for the first, second, and third time of asking, I used to believe that the vicar chose a man and a woman completely at random, and asked them three times if they would get married. If they refused, the vicar would give up and ask other people instead.

I used to beleive that when you turned 18, you were sent a letter inviting you to a big hall and were given a number to bring along. When you got there, the boys had to line up on one side and the girls on the other. You then had to find the matching number from the other side and that is who you married. I remember being worried incase i wouldn't like the person i got matched up with when it was my turn.
