i used to believe that everyone got married the day they graduated from college
When I was little I used to believe you didn't have to be a adult to get married so I proposed to a boy when I was five. Now i'm thirteen and I just concentrate on TV romances and no I haven't proposed to any boys since then.
I used to believe that I could marry my dad when I grew-up. Even after I told him i would he still wouldn't tell me otherwise. Luckily this didn't last because my babysitter had to explain to me.
That adults had to be three years apart in age, legally, to be married and have children. My parents were three years apart and I was convinced that other people couldn't get married if they didn't have the same age gap. Then I told people that their parents were breaking the law by being married.
Until I was around 9 or 10 I believed that a woman was only allowed to marry a man who was older than her.
I used to believe that I could marry my dad and i would always talk about marrying him when I grew up
My parents divorced when I was 5 years old. To get divorced, I thought they had to go to the church where they were married, and walk backwards from the front of the isle to the back. I even pictured my mother holding a bouquet during the reverse ceremony.
I used to think that I was required to marry a man from my own family. I remember being very stressed: which one of my brothers would I have to choose? I told my mom this and she laughed so hard, she nearly wet herself
Until today, my twelve-year-old brother didn't know couples picked their wedding song. He thought whatever happened to be playing at the time of their first dance was the one they had to use.
I used to think that it was illegal to get married before the age of 30.
Until only a few years ago (I'm 13) I used to think that whoever caught the bride's bouquet at the wedding reception would get married right after that. I thought it would never end & people would just keep getting married over and over. I was very confused when a married person caught the bouquet!
When I was young my 2 older sisters tried to convince me thar I was in love with Tony Blair. They told me over and over again that deep down I loved him, so eventually I believed them and kissed the TV whenever he came on saying I wanted to marry him.
when i was small,my friends and i had a discussion if we ever wanted to get married(the hate-boys stage).while two us didn't want to...this girl said she wanted to because she liked kids and wanted some of her own....and so the rest of us tried to convince her that you didn't have to marry and that when you grow big enough you will get pregnant on your own without any body's help.
When I was very young I went with my parents to their friend's wedding. Being only about 6 weddings were not the most entertaining thing to be doing and my parents knew that I would get very bored very soon. Therefore, my father convinced me that weddings have a break in the middle (just like at the theatre show's i'd been to) where the ice-cream man came round. I was good all the way through just to get the ice-cream. I must say- I threw a wobbler big time when I found out about the lack of ice-cream and in the end the Groom himself went to buy me an ice-cream from the shop near the church.
I was raised Buddhist, and I somehow got it in my head that I had to marry someone who was also Buddhist. I thought the only other Buddhist children were the ones I grew up around, and none of the boys were very appealing to me, so I would spend many nights crying in my room, thinking that I would never be able to get married.
I used to think that being in love was some kind of horrible addiction that brain-washed you. Why else would you still love someone who treated you like crap, and stay married to him?
I used to believe that siblings had to marry only siblings in the other family. For example, my husband's brother could only marry my sister, and so on. I tried asking my parents what would happen if someone with 2 sisters married someone with 1 brother, but they didn't understand what I was talking about.
I used to believe that my cousin and I were married, because we were ring bearer and flower girl at a wedding. She was five, I was four.
I used to believe that you had to be the sameage a some-one to marry them. If you weren't and got married, then you would go to jail.
After awgile I got that out of my head and up popped anew idea. A Husband was always older than the wife. Then I heard the meaning of the word toy-boy.....
When she was around 6, my sister thought that men studied for a Bachelor of Arts in University, and women studied for a Spinster of Arts. It was pretty logical, since an unmarried woman was traditionally called a spinster and she assumed that the men who received their bachelors had decided they would never get married.
