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 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 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.

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.

Fffffffffffffffuuuuuuudge. :(

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.

When I was six or seven I asked my little brother to marry me when we were grown ups so that we could live in a house and collect rocks together. He agreed.

When I was about 6 I overheard my mother saying, 'wow, Judy chose a really nice boyfriend.' When I heard the word 'chose' I imagined a line of really handsome muscular men all waiting for me to choose one of them to be my boyfriend. I was so disappointed when I realized dating wasn't like I imagined.

When I was about 6, my parents left me and my sister with my grandparents for a few days to go celebrate their anniversary. Me and my sister believed that their anniversary celebration consisted of them dancing on tables in their underwear with roses in their mouths. My grandparents still laugh at us about it to this day.
