As a child, I thought mannequins in department stores were actual people. I asked my mother if she'd go shopping for a husband with me when I was older, so I could pick one out. She declined, and ultimately did not meet my husband in a department store.

I used to believe that a divorce was a ceremony, like the opposite of a wedding. Your family and friends would attend, wearing black. The bride and groom would walk down the aisle together at the beginning of the ceremony, an officiant would declare them divorced, and they would leave separately.

I have always loved animals. As all small children do, I only knew about one kind of love, like the way you love your mother. I really didn't understand the attraction part and that your spouse is a different kind of love then your parents. So, naturally, I wanted to marry my dog. He was a boy, after all. I convinced my best friend to marry him, too, so we could be realated!

When I was about eight years old, a friend of mine believed that once a princess became married, she would immediately become queen. Because of this (and the notion that queens are washed-up old fogies who never do anything cool), she would never get 'married' while playing pretend.

After watching too much English tv, I used to believe that only men named James could get married. When I realised there were hardly any men named James in Belgium (where I live) I cried for days thinking I'd never find a husband unless I moved to England.

When I was about 4 or 5 I believed that you could date as many people as you wanted at a time and be in love with all of them and then you would choose one of them to marry.

As a child, I was surrounded by fairytales about princesses who grew up and got married, and at some point I decided that ONLY princesses got married. So I thought my mother had been a princess when she was younger, but had become a teacher after she married Dad because she liked it more.

When I was young I thought that a after a wedding, the bride and groom took a trip to the moon and ate lots of honey there. After all, what else would a "honeymoon" be?

When I was little, I was always puzzled about weddings. The line "til death do us part", mainly. I was under the belief that, after the wedding, the bride and groom would go separate ways and have to see each other in secret.

Until I was about 8 (a long time to hold this belief), I thought that men were supposed to marry women who were both younger and shorter than them. I didn't think it was a law or anything, just the socially acceptable thing to do. So I thought very poorly of my uncle who married a woman a couple years older and much taller and thought they must be social outcasts.

When I was little I used to believe that to get divorced, you had to get all dressed up again, have all your family and friends present but this time walk backwards down the aisle of the church, afterall to get married you had to walk forward down the aisle....I believed this until one day I mentioned it to my mum and she explained how it really works...mind you my way sounds way better!

When I was little I thought that adults at weddings automatically knew how to dance in unison like dancers in music videos. Really they were just dancing to The Electric Slide.
