I used to think that sometime towards the ennof college, all the men would line up on one side of a field and all the women on another, and at a signal everyone would run at each other and the person you ended up with became your spouse! I had no idea of dating, courting, proposing, marriage was just random chance!!!
I used to think that my mom made babies from the baby making factory.
i used to believe that everyone who kissed in movies were married to each other. it just never made sense that they would kiss if they weren't.
As a kid I believed that finding a nice husband involved walking around the city looking for a friendly man without a wedding ring, preferably Chinese (?).
I always thought that when you were ready to get married, you would go to a huge warehouse of people and walk around until you found the one you liked.
For some reason in first grade I thought that teachers weren't allowed to get married or have kids. I don't know why I thought this knowing full well that my mom was a teacher...
When I was three my parents got married. My grandparents are I dropped them off at the airport for them to go on their honeymoon. In the car on the way home I looked up in the sky and could not for the life of me figure out how they would fit in the moon (it seemed so small in the sky). And why on Earth was it filled with honey. What a strange thing a honeymoon was...
I used to believe that you couldn't marry people with different eye colors as you.
I used to believe that I would save my very first kiss for my husband on our wedding day, but I would make my mom and dad leave the church so they wouldn't see me because I'd be embarassed.
When I was about 5 (early 1970s) I was thinking about how I might go about meeting a suitable partner when I was older. I thought it would be as simple as going up to the main road and waiting for someone nice-looking to come along, then asking if they wanted to get married.
When I was six my mom told me that nuns never get married. I came to the conclusion that all women that do not get married eventually become nuns. I even asked my aunt (not married & in her forties) when she was going to become a nun...
I used to believe a honeymoon was when newlyweds flew up to the moon and scooped honey off the moon to keep it in a jar forever.
When I was little, I used to think that the ring bearer and the flower girl would have to get married one day. I thought that the wedding they participated in was just practice for their OWN wedding. This really confused me because I was the flower girl in five weddings, and in three of them one of my cousins was the ring bearer. I was so confused because a) I only wanted to get married once, and b) I definitely didn't want to marry my cousin. Needless to say I was relieved when mama set me straight.
Most of the weddings I've attended in my life were when I was still a kid. I knew the bouquet toss was for single ladies and the uh garter shoot was for single men.(I'd only seen grooms shoot the garter across the room like a giant rubber band, lol).
I'd heard the custom(?) that whoever catches the bouquet will be the next to marry. So, logicallyI thought that the lady who caught the bouquet and the man who caught the garter had to marry each other.
Hmm... I don't know why I never wondered why we never attended those weddings...
my parents were born in the same year..same as my grandparents, my aunt and her husband...when i was little, i thought only people at the same age are allowed to get married....i actually believed that for a long time....
My mom used to tell me people had to be 25 to get married. I believed it til I was like 16 and was wondering why some people weren't in jail.
I used to believe that when the bride threw the bouquet whoever caught it was going to marry the groom when the bride died.
until recently (I'm 12) I thought there was only one ring (per spouse) I thought the bride gave the ring back to the groom and he gave his back so they could symbolically put them on each others fingers. I now know theres the engagement ring and the wedding ring.
When I was about 4, my mom had me convinced you had to have graduated from college to date or get married. You also couldn't kiss until after you were married or else you would get really sick. I sincerely believed it until I was about 12!
I used to believe that people on a TV wedding would actually be married if the preacher said all of the words of the marriage ceremony. That is why they would never show the whole ceremony, it would cut to different parts. I would sit and watch anytime there was a wedding on a soap opera or any show to see if they actually showed the entire ceremony. I believed this until I was in high school.
