A Child's View About Marriage

I took a wedding picture of ours and played around in Photo Explosion with it for a few minutes. Not much time today so I was just going to put the funny things kids say to go with it. They are just an email forward going around. I know...this is a lazy post.

HOW
DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY?


(written by children) VERY WISE CHILDREN !!!!!!!!


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.

-- Kristen , 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


HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?

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

-- Derrick, age 8


WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON?

Both don't want any more kids.

-- Lori, age 8


WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE?

Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.

-- Lynnette , age 8

(isn't she a treasure)


On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that Usually gets them
interested enough to go for a second date.

-- Martin, age 10


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?

When they're rich.

-- Pam, age 7


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

(bless you child)


HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN'T GET
MARRIED?

There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't
there?

-- Kelvin, age 8 (just LOVE this one)


And the #1 Favorite is........

HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK?

Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a
truck.

-- Ricky, age 10

These are such clever children Brenda. I love all of the responses they gave, I find it's hard to pick a favorite.

Oh my Gosh! It was Mother's Day last Sunday!?! Well the good thing is at least my mother didn't remember what day it was when I went to see her that day.

Funny you should be 'trying' to clean out your closet filled with memories I been trying to decide what to keep and get rid of myself.

This post about a child's view about marriage is just great! I like all of them, hard to decide which one is the best and they are all great. I am still laughing yet! Thanks for sharing these.
