I ised to think that people had to see the movie JAWS before they got married as a test to see how much fear they could handle.

When I was little i thought at weddings a crowd of people would stand outside of a church building and ask another random person to marry them. Then I supposed the best couple would be elected to get married. I have no idea how i came up with this...

When I asked my dad where he met my mum, he told me he went to a shop and chose her. For years I thought when I was old enough I could go to a Wife Shop and pick out who I wanted.

When I was little, I was always puzzled about weddings. The line "til death do us part", mainly. I was under the belief that, after the wedding, the bride and groom would go separate ways and have to see each other in secret.

I used to think that women could only marry men who were older than they were. I was so relieved when, at age 6, I discovered that the little boy I had a crush on was exactly one month and one day older than I. Otherwise, I would have had to stop liking him.

When I was little my uncle and auntie got divorced; my mum explained to me that I wouldn't see my Auntie anymore, and when I pushed for a reason she said that the policeman had come round and told them to be apart!

I believed for a long time that this could happen to any married couple whenever the police chose; but strangely never doubted that the policeman had a good reason!

I have always loved animals. As all small children do, I only knew about one kind of love, like the way you love your mother. I really didn't understand the attraction part and that your spouse is a different kind of love then your parents. So, naturally, I wanted to marry my dog. He was a boy, after all. I convinced my best friend to marry him, too, so we could be realated!

I used to think that once I got married, I wouldn’t see my family anymore. I was so worried, I wanted to marry my brother! lol we were kids and we were best friends. We didn’t want to be separated.

I belived that when someone wanted a divorce, they would dress up in black clothing and walk down the aisle again. Like, an opposite wedding. I made my barbies do it before i would remarry them to someone else.

My daughter asked me what my husband and I were like when we were little and were brother and sister. She thought that her and her brother would grow up and be husband and wife.

I used to think the f-word meant to get a divorce because of the following twisted little logic trail: I'd once overheard a kid in a public bathroom asking her mum what that word meant; after much hesitation her mum answered that it was "something that married people do". Well, I already knew it was a bad word - and thus surely must mean a bad thing - and what could be worse for married people to do than to get a divorce?

I used to believe that if you kissed someone you HAD to marry them. Even in the movies.

I used to think that my 2 girl friends and I would get married and then we'd have 2 travel campers. One camper would be for my 2 girlfriends and I to live and sleep in and the other camper would be where our husband's lived and slept. I was about 6 years old.

When I was about 7 years of age, I attended my cousins wedding. After the wedding, at the reception, an announcement was made to 'toast' the bride and groom. Being a hungry kid, for hours afterwards and then for a further few years, I often wondered what happened to the plates of 'hot buttered toast' that I assumed accompanied the 'toasting' of the newly wed couple!!!!!

I used to believe that the bridesgroom was the room at the back of the church where the bride got ready. The groomsmen got her ready, ie. groomed her.

As a child, I was surrounded by fairytales about princesses who grew up and got married, and at some point I decided that ONLY princesses got married. So I thought my mother had been a princess when she was younger, but had become a teacher after she married Dad because she liked it more.

I used to believe that a Lesbian referred to someone who was either of Lebanese nationality or from somewhere else (perhaps a country called Lesbia?).

When I was little I thought that children had to marry their parents, so i thought I was going to marry my dad until my mom explained that that's not how it works.

My parents' birthdays are only two days apart. When I was a child, I thought that people had to be born in the same week in order to get married. When I was ten I met a girl named Theresa whose parents were 15 years apart and I thought (in secret) that their marriage must not be real. I thought the father was probably really Theresa's grandfather and that she was just stupid. I was pretty condescending to her after that.
