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.
I used to believe that french kiss was something coming from France, and that only the French did it
I used to believe that being a bride was something I could be when I grew up because during career day with my sixth grade buddy when I was in Kindergarten I told her that that's what I wanted to be. She told me that I couldn't be that because everyone gets to be a bride.
I used to think people had to have the same birthday in order to get married... Guess I was thinking of an anniversary. Imagine my dismay back in grade school when the only other person there that shared my birthday was my best friend's little sister (I'm female, too...)
I used to believe a husband was a wife and vice versa, because i thought the word husband was prettier than the word wife and so should go with the prettier person (the female)
I used to believe that the second a man or woman took off their wedding ring, they were officially not married anymore. :P
When I was about six or seven, I was watching Disney's Cinderella. In the end, you saw Cinderella and the prince riding off in their carrige smooching away. When I asked mom where they were going, my mom said that they were going on their honey moon. This confused me. Why would they go to the moon? I assumed that a honey moon meant that the newly-wed couple were going to get blasted off to the moon. I also thought that the moon was made of honey. I couldn't wait till I got married because I always wanted to go to the moon!
My father married my step-mother when I was 9 years old and I got a day off school to attend the wedding. When I went back to school and told all my friends about the wedding I thought it was really mean that everyone else's parents didn't invite them to thier weddings. It didn't occur to me that other people's parents were married before the children were born. I just thought I was lucky cause my parents let me go to the rockin' party they had after the wedding.
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.
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".
When I was younger I started to wonder how my mom can dad can just get dressed and undressed in front of each other so nonchalantly even though they were opposite genders. I asked my older sister, and she told me that when people get married, they have to go into a room and stand naked in front of each other. This made me nervous to get married. I also figured that if two people got married and they had children, like in The Brady Bunch, that the children would have to do the same thing with their new step siblings.
When I was little I thought that when you got married, you had to marry your brother or sister. If you didnt have any brothers or sisters you couldnt get married.
I believed that when you got married (the wife) you didn't have to work. Boy, was I fooled. ha ha ha
When peole would say they are going on a 'honeymoon' i used to think that they were going on holiday in a hot air ballon!
i used to believe that in the wedding vows you were loathelly married, i couldn't figure out why to people who hated each other would wantto spend there lives together
I used to belive that you couldn't get married to someone you knew, because cousins and siblings couldn't marry, and the groom couldn't see the bride before the wedding.
I used to believe that when a couple weds, they get their child as a present from the parson. I always wondered why there were married couples who had more than one child or none at all....
When I was little, like 3-4 years old, I thought that I had to marry my brother when I grew up. I was upset, because I didn't want to marry my brother, but I realized that there was nothing I could do about it, that was just the way things were, so I resigned myself to my fate.
When my sister and I were small (younger than 5), in the house where we lived we had one of those giant glass water jars -- you know the ones, that in the 70's people used to put peacock feathers in; it was about 2 feet tall, maybe a foot and a half wide. My mother told us that it used to be her house; that, before she met our father and married him, she'd been a genie, and had lived in that bottle. She told us how it had been decorated, with lamps and silk cushions and so forth; it had evidently been very comfortable. She'd decided to become human so she could get married and have children, but she liked to keep the jar around to remember her old life by.
My aunt used to tell me that if you kissed a mirror you had to marry it when you grew up,just to stop me from kissing her mirror.(yeah,that was one of my weird habits as a child)
I also used to think I'd marry my dad when I grew up.
