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.

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.

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..
