I love kids! They view the world differently than adults, and sometimes, the way they see the world makes for some very funny moments. Read on to hear some of my favorite comments made by children about their thoughts on love, dating, and marriage.
Q: What Exactly Is Marriage?
“Marriage is when you get to keep your girl and don’t have to give her back to her parents” –Eric, six years old
“When somebody’s been dating for a while, the boy might propose to the girl. He says to her, ‘I’ll take you for a whole life, or at least until we have kids and get divorced, but you got to do one particular thing for me.’ Then she says yes, but she’s wondering what the thing is and whether it’s naughty or not. She can’t wait to find out.” –Anita, nine years old
Q: How Does a Person Decide Whom to Marry?
“You flip a nickel, and heads means you stay with him and tails means you try the next one.” –Kelly, nine years old
“My mother says to look for a man who is kind.…That’s what I’ll do.…I’ll find somebody who’s kinda tall and handsome.” –Carolyn, eight years old
Q: What Is the Proper Age to Get Married?
“Once I’m done with kindergarten, I’m going to find me a wife” –Bert, five years old
Q: How Did Your Mom and Dad Meet?
“They were at a dance party at a friend’s house. Then they went for a drive, but their car broke down…It was a good thing, because it gave them a chance to find out about their values.” –Lottie, nine years old
“My father was doing some strange chores for my mother. They won’t tell me what kind.” –Jeremy, eight years old
Q: What Do Most People Do on a Date?
“On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.” –Martin, ten years old
“Many daters just eat pork chops and french fries and talk about love.” –Craig, nine years old
Q: When Is It Okay to Kiss Someone?
“You should never kiss a girl unless you have enough bucks to buy her a ring and her own VCR, ’cause she’ll want to have videos of the wedding.” –Allan, ten years old
“Never kiss in front of other people. It’s a big embarrassing thing if anybody sees you.…If nobody sees you, I might be willing to try it with a handsome boy, but just for a few hours.” –Kally, nine years old
The Great Debate: Is It Better to Be Single or Married?
“You should ask the people who read Cosmopolitan” –Kirsten, ten years old
“It’s better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need somebody to clean up after them” –Anita, nine years old
“It gives me a headache to think about that stuff. I’m just a kid. I don’t need that kind of trouble.” –Will, seven years old
Kids Thoughts On Love
“Love will find you, even if you are trying to hide from it. I been trying to hide from it since I was five, but the girls keep finding me.” — Dave, age 8
“A man and a woman promise to go through sickness and illness and diseases together.” — Marlon, age 10
“No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something to do with how you smell. That’s why perfume and deodorant are so popular.” — Mae, age 9
“I’m in favor of love as long as it doesn’t happen when Dinosaurs is on television.” — Jill, age 6
“Love is like an avalanche where you have to run for your life.” — John, age 9
“It isn’t always how you look. Look at me. I’m handsome like anything, and I haven’t got anybody to marry me yet.” — Brian, age 7
“Lovers will just be staring at each other and their food will get cold. Other people care more about the food.” – Brad, age 8
“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.” — Allan, 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
