Deciding Who To Marry

Carli sent me this email earlier this week, and though I usually glance at forwards, and then quickly delete, I found this one to be adorable. It just made me smile.  Maybe we need to take more advice from kids?

1. HOW  DO YOU DECIDE WHOM TO  MARRY?   (written by kids)   

 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  

2.  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  

3.  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  

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

Both don’t want any more kids.   
—  Lori,  age 8  

5.  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  

6.  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  

7.    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  

8.  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  

And   the #1 Favorite is…….  
9.  HOW  WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE   WORK?   

Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like  a dump truck.
  —  Ricky, age  10
