Kids And 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 dips 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.

Camile, 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?

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.

Kristen, 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?

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

Ricky, age 10


  1. "On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date." Luckily my wife still hasn't figured out my lies and sticks with me.

  2. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough. LOL. I love these and some pretty good advice there in many cases.

  3. These are awesome! I wish I had thought of playing dead after some terrible dates when I was single...

  4. Bearman: I think we all tell little white lies that are just interesting enough to get the other to come back around.

    I'm in the same boat as you. :D

    Charles: My favorite is the last one. And I think some of those are definitely spot on.

    M: I think playing dead would've worked for me when I was dating a girl whose mother was a vice cop.

  5. Profound comments. We can learn a lot from kids. Oh my goodness, did I laugh!!!

  6. So far I've demonstrated that I'll marry anyone who asks me.

    I have to disagree with Camile. I got married for the first time at age 23 and that one didn't work out. Getting married at 36 worked out much better.

  7. G.A.: You have to love listening to children expound on life. They tell the unvarnished truth and say things that we as adults would never be caught dead uttering in public.

    And yes, it is funny. :D

    S.R.: I see that the old adage of "try, try again" applies here, eh?

    Glad to hear that it's working out for you. :D

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

    Ain't that the truth!! :D

  9. Joe: Oh absolutely! I see it all the time myself when I'm out and about. :D


Go on, give me your best shot. I can take it. If I couldn't, I wouldn't have created this wonderful little blog that you decided to grace with your presence today.

About that comment moderation thingy: While yes, it does say up above I can take it, I only use it to prevent the occasional miscreant from leaving thoughtless and/or clueless comments.

So remember, all of your comments are greatly appreciated and all answers will be given that personal touch that you come to expect and enjoy.
