WHAT EXACTLY IS MARRIAGE ?




A lot of friends around my son are getting married or are married now. So I wanted to let him read some funny but positive things about marriage. And all I found was this ! Even the children apparently have not a lot of illusions !


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

What Exactly Is Marriage? 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.

Marriage is not a word. It is a sentence--a life sentence.

Marriage is very much like a violin; after the sweet music is over, the strings are attached.

Marriage is love. Love is blind. Therefore, marriage is an institution for the blind.

Marriage is an institution in which a man loses his Bachelor's Degree and the woman gets her Masters.


Marriage is a thing which puts a ring on a woman's finger and two under the man's eyes.


Marriage certificate is just another word for a work permit.


Marriage is not just a having a wife, but also worries inherited forever.


If it's true that girls are inclined to marry men like their fathers, it is understandable why so many mothers cry so much at weddings.


Fortunately when you are in love you think anyway that all this is wrong and that is good, otherwise there wouldn't be any marriages anymore.

I'm not very good marriage material I'm afraid. I tried it twice and both times couldn't get out of it fast enough, so that's enough for me.

I don't know why, but I just love this one:

"If it's true that girls are inclined to marry men like their fathers, it is understandable why so many mothers cry so much at weddings".

Kids just have so fun ways of saying things... *giggles*
