I used to think that I would get married for sure and have to kids, a boy and girl and it would be that easy for that to happen.
I used to think that I would do absolutely anything for my wife/girlfriend, even if she hurt my feelings and I would get her anything she wanted. When I think about this now it kind of sounds like I would be smothering her a little bit.
When I was very small I thought that when a couple got married they had to have sex in the church during the ceremony! My only knowlege of sex was from watching dogs mate so I thought the bride dropped to her hands and knees and the reason for the long train on the dress was to covet up the "action".whenever we were invited to a wedding I would cry hysterically out of embarressment so I never went to a wedding and found out I was wrong for years.
My parents' birthdays are only two days apart. When I was a child, I thought that people had to be born in the same week in order to get married. When I was ten I met a girl named Theresa whose parents were 15 years apart and I thought (in secret) that their marriage must not be real. I thought the father was probably really Theresa's grandfather and that she was just stupid. I was pretty condescending to her after that.
I used to believe that a preacher at a wedding ceremony would ask the groom, "Do you take this woman to be your awful wife?", instead of "lawful" wife. I could never understand why anyone would want to marry an "awful" wife.
I believed that I would live in an 'ice castle' with my best guy friend and be a princess. This led to me proposing to him... poor guy.
Both my parents were married to other people before they married eachother, so when I was little I believed you have your first practice husband/wife to work out the kinks, and then you had your second one that would last a life time!
When I was 4 I thought the minister gave the bride and groom a brand new last name when they got married. l asked my dad what his maiden name was and my parents burst out laughing. I got so upset because I just wanted to know his old name.
I used to think that it was illegal for the wife to be taller than the husband. When we visited my parents' friends, I was horrified to find that the wife was significantly taller than the husband. I remember looking out the back window as we were leaving and waving at them because I knew that they would get arrested soon.
When I was little I thought that children had to marry their parents, so i thought I was going to marry my dad until my mom explained that that's not how it works.
When I was little, I used to believe that you would get arrested if you got married/divorced more than 4 times. I believed it for longer than I care to admit.
People who step on the same step of the staircase at the same time with the same foot are destined to be with each other.
So I was freaked out when there was an old lady climbing stairs next to me.
I used to believe that if you had sex, you had it before you married someone and then stopped after your wedding.
I used to believe that the person you marry had to look similar to you, so I would only talk to boys with blonde hair and blue eyes like me.
I used to believe that a Lesbian referred to someone who was either of Lebanese nationality or from somewhere else (perhaps a country called Lesbia?).
When I was a little girl, like four years old, I thought you could marry anyone you wanted, including your siblings. I thought it would be easier to marry a sibling because you had known them your whole life, you knew everything about them, and you wouldn't have the trouble of getting to know somebody new. I only had sisters and no brothers, so I assumed I was out of luck, but my friend had a twin brother. I said to her, "When we're grownups, why don't you just marry him?" She explained to me that you don't marry siblings. I'm lucky she knew that, or I wouldn't have cleared it up at an early age.
I used to think marrage was just so moms can have kids and the only reasons dads did it was because the moms took care of them. When my dad left I thought it was because he didnt like my moms cooking anymore.
Once my 8 year old brother came home from school very upset because one of his friend told him it was the law that when you became a grown-up you had to get married. he was almost in tears saying how he didnt want to be stuck with a dumb girl forever.
When I was kid I had a crush on Robin Williams (shush). I just thought he was so cool and so funny and also could be someone to protect/help me through life (this was when he had done films like Hook and Aladdin). I really, truly, wanted to marry him, but my mom said only grown-ups could get married. So I was willing to wait until I grew up, thinking that since Robin was already a grown up, he wasn't going to get any older and so when I was 18 he was going to be exactly the same as he was in 1993.
I used to think that my 2 girl friends and I would get married and then we'd have 2 travel campers. One camper would be for my 2 girlfriends and I to live and sleep in and the other camper would be where our husband's lived and slept. I was about 6 years old.
I used to believe that I would marry a prince one day. My favorite movies were, of course, all of the Disney princess movies, and I took for granted that all women eventually find prince charming. One day it hit me - my dad isn't a prince! In fact, I don't even know any princes! It was a nice illusion while it lasted.
