When I was at primary school I used to believe you could only marry someone who was the same height as you!
when i was young i believed that gay men got married to gay women!
My mom and dad happened to have the same birthday (dad is one year older). I used to think, similar to the way a wife changes her last name to her husband's once they get married, that she also changed her birthday to match the husband's!
I asked my Mum what a honeymoon was for. She said it was so the bride and groom could get to know each other. I therefore thought that when you got married the couple didn't know each other.
When I was younger after my parents divorced, they used to send each other cards saying "Merry Xmas". After that , I used to believe that "Merry Xmas" was the way of saying "Merry Christmas" to an ex-partner.
my parents got divorced when I was six years old. for some reason, I thought that since divorce was the opposite of marriage, they would promise to hate each other and then instead of kissing, they would slap eachother.
I used to think that at weddings, the preist would say, "Do you take this woman to be your awfully wedded wife?"
For the longest time I believed that you had to get Divorced the same way you got Married. All of your friends and relatives from your wedding would have to come to the Divorce and instead of wearing white everyone would have to wear black.
I used to think that I would live with my parents until I turned 20, then my mom would put me in a wedding dress and kick me out. Then I thought I would run into some random guy, tell him my name, he'd tell me his. Then I ask if he's a good person, he'd ask if I was a good person, and if both said yes, we'd get married later that day.
I used to beleive that when newly weds went on their honeymoon i believed they were actually going to the moon to eat honey!!!!!
I used to think that when a couple went on a honeymoon, it was always to a quaint inn or cabin in the mountains. I'm not sure where I got this belief, since my parents went to Toronto on their honeymoon. I also thought that the couple stayed dressed up (i.e. the bride always wore the dress, and the groom always wore the tux) for the entire honeymoon.
Both my parents were married to other people before they married eachother, so when I was little I believed you have your first practice husband/wife to work out the kinks, and then you had your second one that would last a life time!
When I was very small I thought that when a couple got married they had to have sex in the church during the ceremony! My only knowlege of sex was from watching dogs mate so I thought the bride dropped to her hands and knees and the reason for the long train on the dress was to covet up the "action".whenever we were invited to a wedding I would cry hysterically out of embarressment so I never went to a wedding and found out I was wrong for years.
I used to believe that when you wanted to get married, you would put on your tux, and walk around until you found a woman in a wedding dress, and then you'd be married.
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.
I used to think that you wouldn't die unless you got married.
I used to beleive that divorce court was when two people went to court and after stating their cases the judge pressed a huge red button and lights and sounds would scream and flash and when the smoke settled the two people would be DIVORCED!
i used to think that it was a law that people with the same color hair had to get married to in order to ensure that their children had the right color hair. this was corroborated that both i and my parents have dark brown hair. i was very confused when a friend of mine had dark hair but his mother was a blonde.
When I was little I thought that a honeymoon was when the Husband and wife went to the moon and eat honey.
I used to believe that what they called the people getting married were "the bride and broom". I only realized when I was 9 and going to be a jr bridesmaid that the proper term was the "bride and groom".
