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.
My brother, at age 4, used to believe that you could only marry someone you love, and the only girl he loved in the world was me (his sister), so he would have to marry me.
When I was young, I used to believe people could only marry other people they love and were born on the exact same day as themselves. It had me a little worried how I would find someone like that.
When I was little, I used to think that a wedding was where people went, with the hope of finding the right partner and getting married there. I was therefore mystified when I first found out that my mum and dad knew each other before they were married!
My grandmother on my mom's side was her step mom and I knew this because I remebered my mom's biological mother dying. I asked my mom how she could have two mother's and which one was my real grandmother. I was told they both were my real grandmothers and my step-grandmother said she loved me from the day I was born. So I made up this theory that if somebody was married before you were born they were automatically your blood relativies. Not sure how I came to that conclusion, but it made me feel batter!
I never thought I could grow up to be a giraffe or a police car, like many others did. I was very well aware I would stay a human being, but I believed I could MARRY anything imaginable.
Around the age of 5 I had this daydream about having all my relatives in the church, watching me walking down the aisle in a pretty wedding dress and marrying a two metre high piece of licorice candy.
I was worried if I could control myself to only eat a very little piece of my licorice-husband every day, so that it would last for the rest of my life.
I used to believe that during weddings, the minister would ask the husband, "Do you take this woman, to be your awfully wedded wife." I thought marriage was necessary but awful.
I used to believe that marriage was only between brothers and sisters.
when i was a little kid i used to think that a honeymoon was where after a couple had got married they celebrated by eating honey infront of the moon..is it true i'm still not so sure
I thought that when a boy proposed to a girl, that it was the proper thing to do for the girl to say, "Oh, well, I'll have to think it over", even if she really wanted to say "yes" right away...As a little girl I used to day dream about the time when my future fiance would pop the question and how I would have to go home and be so excited over night, just waiting until the next day when I could excitedly tell him "Yes!!"
I thought the bridal veil was so that the groom wouldn't see who he was marrying.
When i was little i thought that you get a husband by going to this place where all the men are and picking one of the men there.After you picked your man, you would marry him.
My parents and I were driving one day, and somehow the subject of their wedding came up. My mother (who was probably fighting with my father at the time), said snidely, "If you can call it a marriage....."
I thought for years that parents weren't really married, that I was a bastard and that I was going to hell. Thanks, Mom.
