Off topic: Kids on relationships!
Thread poster: Nina Khmielnitzky
My cousin in San Francisco sent me this, since I'm getting married (everybody is sending me funny and catastophic wedding pictures and stories these days...).
I wanted to share these thoughts from kids about marriage, called 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."
Derrick, age 8
WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON?
"Both don't want no 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
"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 OK 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?
"I don't know which is better, but I'll tell you one thing. I'm never going to have sex with my wife. I don't want to be all grossed out." Theodore, age 8
"It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them."
Anita, age 9
"Single is better, for the simple reason that I wouldn't want to change no diapers. Of course, if I did get married, I'd just phone my mother and have her come over for some coffee and diaper-changing."
Kirsten, age 10
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
"You can be sure of one thing - the boys would come chasing after us just the same as they do now."
Roberta, age 7
HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK?
"If you want to last with your man, you should wear a lot of sexy clothes,
especially underwear that is red and maybe has a few diamonds on it." Lori, age 8
"Tell your wife that she looks pretty even if she looks like a truck." Ricky, age 10
| Now for something completely different! || Dec 16, 2004 |
Thanks Nina, now at last I remembered why I got divorced
| And they didn't even know Divorced Barbie... || Dec 18, 2004 |
A couple were wanting to get a Barbie set
for their daughter and went to the toy shop.
"How much are the Barbie sets?" they asked.
"Depends on which one - they're all different"
said the assistant
"What's that one?"
"That's ski-ing Barbie complete with skis - $ 50.00"
"And that one?"
"That's cycling Barbie with bicycle and helmet - $ 56.00"
"Cooking Barbie - complete with cooker - $ 70.00"
They then point to one at the end of the shelf
"How much is that one there?"
"Well, that's Divorced Barbie and is a special set and costs $ 300"
"$ 300!!! - why? - when all the others are around $ 50?"
"It's a Special set - Divorced Barbie comes complete with
Ken's Car, Ken's House, Ken's Business and all of Ken's other stuff!!"
| Now I know where I've been going wrong... || Dec 18, 2004 |
"Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough." Lynnette, age 8
Perhaps I could take Lynnette along with me next time?
