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 the man and woman had to be the same age to be married, because my parents are. So I never liked any boys younger or older than me. I found out that it wasn't true when I was 12, then I kissed a boy who was a year older than me. haha

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.

I believed that if/when a married person removed their wedding band it meant that they were then divorced. I shed so many tears when my mom took off her band to do the dishes one day! It took awhile for her to get to the bottom of the tears, but we sorted it out. Whew!

My aunt got married when she was fresh out
of High School. She got married to a guy one year younger than her and I thought if you married someone older than you that the older person would be be the one who payed the bills, cleaned the house, and do every thing.

As a kid I believed that finding a nice husband involved walking around the city looking for a friendly man without a wedding ring, preferably Chinese (?).

i used to believe that everyone who kissed in movies were married to each other. it just never made sense that they would kiss if they weren't.

I used to believe that the person you marry had to look similar to you, so I would only talk to boys with blonde hair and blue eyes like me.

My sister (again) when she was 5 thought that the man had to be fat and the woman skinny when they got married. This was because all the wed couples she had seen fitted this category. So when she saw one couple were the reverse was true (woman fat, man skinny) she thought that the mariiage would probably fail.

And when I wrote this, she corrected "fat is spelled 'phat'". Oh my, the gangsta generation.

I used to think that a bridal shower involved pouring water on the bride, or sticking her in the shower and turning on the water. I could never figure out why anyone would want to have one.

I remember playing with my Barbie dolls while our babysitter was taking care of me when I was about 5 years old. Barbie and Ken were getting married and I recited the vows for them. "Do you Barbie, take Ken to be your awful wedded husband?"

My babysitter laughed and said "No, Brooke, it's 'lawful' not 'awful.'" I refused to believe her and continued to insist that it was, indeed, "awful".

When I was little I thought that when you got married they would hand you a baby and you couldn't kiss the bride untill she named it.

When I was five or six, I recall asking my mother about the rings she was wearing. She explained that the rings in question were her wedding rings and that when people are married they wear special rings. Several months later at our cottage I happened upon the rings on the bathroom counter and promtly started to cry - in my mind I somehow figured if you took off those rings you were no longer married.

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 used to believe that I would marry a prince one day. My favorite movies were, of course, all of the Disney princess movies, and I took for granted that all women eventually find prince charming. One day it hit me - my dad isn't a prince! In fact, I don't even know any princes! It was a nice illusion while it lasted.
