Kids On Marriage



HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY?
"You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming." Alan, age 10



"No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with." Kirsten, age 10



WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED?
"Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then." Camille, age 10



"No age is good to get married at. You got to be a fool to get married." Freddie, age 6



HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?
"Married people usually look happy to talk to other people." Eddie, age 6



"You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids." Errick, age 8



WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON?
"Both don't want no more kids." Lori, age 8



WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT WAS TURNING SOUR?
"I'd run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns." Craig, age 9



WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?
"The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that." Curt, age 7



"The rule goes like this: if you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do." Howard, age 8



IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED?
"It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them." Anita, age 9



HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK?
"Tell your wife that she looks pretty even if she looks like a truck." Ricky, age 10

Gee... if I'd only had all this wisdom BEFORE I got married! LOL!

Vin De Vine said...

Sue; I had all that wisdom, I knew everything there was to know.
I knew what time Howdy Doody came on,
I knew when the ice cream truck cruised by,
I knew how to make my Mom smile.
I knew my favorite color was rainbow.
I knew when something was right or wrong.
playing on a swingset was just as important as discovering a green catipillar.
Then I hit puberty...

You know, of course, that I don't know the first thing about this stuff, so I will have to give it some thought before I just dive right in!
