When I was four or five my uncle and aunt got divorced. My mom said to court to
get "unmarried." Court to me was church, so I thought that they had a bad wedding
to get "unmarried." They wore ugly clothes and there were no flowers. After the
minister explained the vows instead of saying "I do" they would say "I don't."
I (And both of my sisters) married my father at age 6 in the corrider of our home and I found this acceptable..Oh good days of Oblivion
I used to believe that when a couple was getting married, in their vows they said "With this ring I be wed" instead of I thee wed.
When I was little my aunt and uncle(mom's bro.)got divorced. I asked my uncle if it was his "x"-wife because she "didn't work out". I thought it was like something on a list--you're done with it so you cross it out.
When I was little I used to believe that all there were in relationships was just kissing and that was going all the way.
Up until I was about 6, I wanted to marry my dad when I grew up. I thought this was perfectly acceptable, since we already loved eachother.
when i was really little, i thought when i grew up, i had to marry my brother. He was so mean to me that one day i went to my mom-bawling my eyes out-and told her that i didn't want to marry him because he was so mean to me.She assured me that i didn't have to!
I used to believe you had to get married if you were normal, so I had to get married to a man, because I was a normal girl with nothing wrong with me. Not that there was a law, just that you HAD to. Not that I had to be a housewife, just that I had to marry a man. I was nine when I found out you didn't have to get married (people had always told me before but I thought they were just making the unmarried weirdos feel better.)
Even into my twenties I did not know any marriage that had split up, let alone divorced. I thought God put an invisible sign on you that only one other person (your potential partner) could see, & you could see theirs! I met my husband 12,000 kilometres away in England.
I used to believe that when I used up all the sheets in my desk scratch pad, I would be married.
When I was little I used to think that when you were ready to get married you went to this big room and just picked the man you wanted. I always thought I would pick Dr. Kildare.
When I was about 10 or 11 I was playing house with a couple of other girls. Of course we had to make up stories about where our husbands were because they weren't around. One girl said her cousin had a baby without being married; the other friend knew this was "bad". I thought about it for several days before I decided that God had made a mistake and given the cousin and her boyfriend a baby because they were so much in love and He hadn't realized they weren't married.
MY FATHER ALWAYS TOLD ME THAT IF I DIDN'T LEARN TO COOK, NO MAN WOULD EVER WANT TO MARRY ME. I BELIEVED THAT RIGHT ABOUT UNTIL I GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL.
I used to believe when I was seven that I would one day marry Macauley Culkin and even acted out the wedding with my best friend Robyn pretending to be Macauley - it goes without saying that we didn't share the man and wife kiss at the end: that would have been too weird!
My son and I were in a friend's bridal party when he was a few months shy of his third birthday - his job was to walk the flower girl, Nicole, down the aisle. About six months later, we were watching a movie when a wedding scene came on - he pointed to the TV and said, "Look Mommy! That looks just like when I married Nicole!".
My sister (again) when she was 5 thought that the man had to be fat and the woman skinny when they got married. This was because all the wed couples she had seen fitted this category. So when she saw one couple were the reverse was true (woman fat, man skinny) she thought that the mariiage would probably fail.
And when I wrote this, she corrected "fat is spelled 'phat'". Oh my, the gangsta generation.
When I was around 5, I heard my mom talking about going to a bridal shower with some other ladies, and I was picturing all these women in the shower together!! I was quite disturbed and was glad I wasn't going.
I used to believe that when you wanted to get married, you would put on your tux, and walk around until you found a woman in a wedding dress, and then you'd be married.
I used to think that once you get married life would be happy ever after, and that Prince Charming really did exist.
I used to believe you had to marry your siblings when you grew up.
