What children think about marriage

What do children think about marriage? Let's ask them:
  • “Marriage is when you get to keep your girl and don't have to give her back to her parents”
    Eric, age 6
  • “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, age 9
How did mum 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, age 9
  • “My father was doing some strange chores for my mother. They won't tell me what kind.”
    Jeremy, age 8
