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 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..
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 used to think that I was required to marry a man from my own family. I remember being very stressed: which one of my brothers would I have to choose? I told my mom this and she laughed so hard, she nearly wet herself
My sister told me that people married by looking at their ear sizes and in order to find the perfect match, people had to have similiar sized ears.
My parents and I were driving one day, and somehow the subject of their wedding came up. My mother (who was probably fighting with my father at the time), said snidely, "If you can call it a marriage....."
I thought for years that parents weren't really married, that I was a bastard and that I was going to hell. Thanks, Mom.
I thought the bridal veil was so that the groom wouldn't see who he was marrying.
I thought that when a boy proposed to a girl, that it was the proper thing to do for the girl to say, "Oh, well, I'll have to think it over", even if she really wanted to say "yes" right away...As a little girl I used to day dream about the time when my future fiance would pop the question and how I would have to go home and be so excited over night, just waiting until the next day when I could excitedly tell him "Yes!!"
I never thought I could grow up to be a giraffe or a police car, like many others did. I was very well aware I would stay a human being, but I believed I could MARRY anything imaginable.
Around the age of 5 I had this daydream about having all my relatives in the church, watching me walking down the aisle in a pretty wedding dress and marrying a two metre high piece of licorice candy.
I was worried if I could control myself to only eat a very little piece of my licorice-husband every day, so that it would last for the rest of my life.
My brother, at age 4, used to believe that you could only marry someone you love, and the only girl he loved in the world was me (his sister), so he would have to marry me.
When I was little, I used to think that the ring bearer and the flower girl would have to get married one day. I thought that the wedding they participated in was just practice for their OWN wedding. This really confused me because I was the flower girl in five weddings, and in three of them one of my cousins was the ring bearer. I was so confused because a) I only wanted to get married once, and b) I definitely didn't want to marry my cousin. Needless to say I was relieved when mama set me straight.
I used to believe a honeymoon was when newlyweds flew up to the moon and scooped honey off the moon to keep it in a jar forever.
I always thought that when you were ready to get married, you would go to a huge warehouse of people and walk around until you found the one you liked.
When I was three my parents got married. My grandparents are I dropped them off at the airport for them to go on their honeymoon. In the car on the way home I looked up in the sky and could not for the life of me figure out how they would fit in the moon (it seemed so small in the sky). And why on Earth was it filled with honey. What a strange thing a honeymoon was...
When I was about 6 I overheard my mother saying, 'wow, Judy chose a really nice boyfriend.' When I heard the word 'chose' I imagined a line of really handsome muscular men all waiting for me to choose one of them to be my boyfriend. I was so disappointed when I realized dating wasn't like I imagined.
My parents happen to have the same birthday. All through elementary school, I thought you could only marry someone who had the same birthday as you. I was crushed when I discovered the boy I liked in fifth grade didn't have the same birthday as me!
I forget when It was but one day my mom was talking to my Aunt about a survey where it asked their 'Maiden name'. I thought that meant their 'lady name' and took the survey from my mom and read what she had wrote. Then I erased it and wrote 'Mommy'. She didn't notice and sent the survey in! When I told my mom that she got her maiden name wrong and I corrected it, she freaked and told me what a Maiden name stood for. Oopsy ^^;;
up untill around age 10 i thought that when a man and a woman were married, after the ceremony was over they went directly to the hospital and the woman gave birth to a baby. i had asked my mother about it once and she replied with "well...sometimes."
My parents have the same birthday, so when I was little I thought that when you get married you both have the same birthday.
When I was little my aunt and uncle(mom's bro.)got divorced. I asked my uncle if it was his "x"-wife because she "didn't work out". I thought it was like something on a list--you're done with it so you cross it out.
