When I was very young, I thought eloping sounded very romantic, and that it always meant sneaking out the window down a ladder. Every time I saw a ladder left against a window, I thought it meant that someone had eloped the night before.

As an adult, I know of several people who eloped, and none of them used a ladder. They just got married without telling anyone until afterwards.

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!

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 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.

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.

I used to believe that I could marry my dad when I grew-up. Even after I told him i would he still wouldn't tell me otherwise. Luckily this didn't last because my babysitter had to explain to me.

As a child I had a crush on my best friend Greta's cousin Ben. Neither of us knew that incest was wrong, so we used to argue over who would get to marry him.

When I was about 10 or 11 I was playing house with a couple of other girls. Of course we had to make up stories about where our husbands were because they weren't around. One girl said her cousin had a baby without being married; the other friend knew this was "bad". I thought about it for several days before I decided that God had made a mistake and given the cousin and her boyfriend a baby because they were so much in love and He hadn't realized they weren't married.

My cousin used to believe that honeymoon was actually a country. So when newlyweds went on their honeymoon, they would go to this same country.

I used to believe that boys married boys and girls married girls, and I argued that one with my mom for quite awhile...yeah...that really explained why my mom is a woman and my dad is a man...

When I was younger I dont know exactly how old probaly about 5 or so I thought that you could only arry someone if you had the same colored hair as them. My dad and my brothers mother had the same color hair and they were married and my mom and my sisters dad had the same colored hair and they were married and my parents had different colored hair and they werent married so i cam to the conclusion somehow that you could only marry if you had the same colored hair. I remember having crushes on guys but i couldnt have them as my boyfriend because they didnt have blonde hair and i wanted to get married. I dont know how i cam up with that but i tiod my mom about it tonight and she laughed so hard.

I used to think that couples shared their first kiss when the priest said "You may kiss the bride". It was weird because I had seen several movies where people had kissed and weren't married.

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.

My mom used to tell me people had to be 25 to get married. I believed it til I was like 16 and was wondering why some people weren't in jail.

When I was a little girl, like four years old, I thought you could marry anyone you wanted, including your siblings. I thought it would be easier to marry a sibling because you had known them your whole life, you knew everything about them, and you wouldn't have the trouble of getting to know somebody new. I only had sisters and no brothers, so I assumed I was out of luck, but my friend had a twin brother. I said to her, "When we're grownups, why don't you just marry him?" She explained to me that you don't marry siblings. I'm lucky she knew that, or I wouldn't have cleared it up at an early age.

I used to think that you couldn't kiss someone until you got married. I thought that when the bride and groom kissed that was their first kiss. I was 7 years old.

My parents have the exact same birthday so when I was little I thought you had to marry someone with the same birthday as you.
