I used to believe that the way you went from being a Prince to a King was to get married, since at the end of fairy tales, the girl married the prince, and then he became a king. I just figured the two events were connected.

i used to believe you had to marry people who have your same last name. i thought this because before my mom was married, her last name actually was the same as my dad! so i was confused with that until i was like seven....

My parents have been divorced since i was a baby, so growing up I knew this. But I always thought of it as my stepdad and stepmom holding hands walking down a hallway, and my real mom and dad holding hands walking towards them. They meet in the middle of the hallway and just trade places, my stepmom matching with my real dad and my stepdad matching up with my real mom. thats how divorced worked in my eyes.

As a bridesmaid in my younger days, I used to believe that when people got married the man said to the woman: "I take you to be my awful wedded wife".

I always believed you had to have a certain number of dates before you were able to get married to someone. For some reason, the number of dates was usually 100. With my Barbie and Ken dolls, I got really bored with having to wait through 100 dates of theirs so I could go ahead and open my new Barbie wedding dress.

(no kissing in the making of the play. ew.)

I used to believe that when two people got married the wife automatically became pregnant. Like the baby just started growing once they decided to get married. That's because every wedding that I went to as a kid the bride was married. I had no concept of sex back then.

When I was young, I got very angry at my older brother for something I can't remember. I was so angry that I went to my mom and said "DO I REALLY HAVE TO MARRY HIM!?" thinking that you're supposed to marry your sibling, I thought that's why my mom's last name was the same as my dad's..

I thought that you could randomly decide who you wanted to marry, at any age. Apparently my friend from preschool thought this too-- I remember proposing to him and he said YES!

what sillies we were back then!

When I was little I was a flowergirl for my uncle's wedding. They were getting married outside and it was just a little windy so the first flower petal I threw down landed right in the bushes. I spent a panicy minute trying to get it out quickly thinking that the bride had to step dirrectly on every flower because she didn't know where she was going.

I used to think that it was against the law to marry anyone who didn't look like you. I think I thought that because the kids always looked like the parents and no-one would know who you were if your parents didn't look alike. Thank God it's not like that!

I belived that when someone wanted a divorce, they would dress up in black clothing and walk down the aisle again. Like, an opposite wedding. I made my barbies do it before i would remarry them to someone else.

When I was little, I asked my mother how people found their spouses, and she told me that, when women wanted to get married, they went out and looked for a husband. (This is how I remember her explanation, at any rate. In reality, it was probably not this simplistic.) Anyway, for several years, the image in my mind of what it looked like when people decided to get married was a woman walking down the street calling, "Who wants to marry me?" It was always the same street, too--this place by the train station where we used to pick my dad up from work.

My parents had their house built when they got together. Based on this, I thought that everyone's parents had built the house they lived in when they got married. I thought that when people died, their house was torn down so that a married couple could build their own house there.

I used to think that at a wedding shower, all the women would dump presents on the bride's head. Why else would they call it a shower?
