Marriage Survey


Tonight I interviewed Ian, Grace, and Emma with a survey I got from online that asked kids questions about marriage. The answers the three cousins gave were so funny...I had to post them.

Here goes. (I wrote down exactly what they said...)

HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY?
(1)
You first like hang out with them a little bit and like see how they are. If you know if you like them or not then you'll know. And then you'll get married and then you'll live happily ever after.
- Ian
(2)
You figure out if they're nice or not and if you like them and how they are and if they're going to change on you or anything. And then you get married.
- Grace
3)
I'm not doing it.
- Emma
WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED?
(1)
I'm not doing it.
- Emma
(2) Ummm (giggles)....about 20 something.
- Grace,
3) Uh, like 28, 29, or 30.
- Ian
HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?
1)
Ummmm, they're hanging out face to face.
- Grace
2) They're holding hands and kissing.
-Ian
3)
They have rings.
- Emma
WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON?
(1)
Uh....cuz we're all family.
- Emma
2)
Ummm, they're both light sleepers. When you touch them and they're sleeping they wake up. They both brush their teeth every morning. They both share the same bed. Do all people do that when they get married?
-Grace
3)
Uh, they both are funny and cute and nice and they treat me good.
--Ian
WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE?
(1)
They share their food and they talk about theirselves
- Ian
(2)
They get their food with a fork and shove it in the other person's mouth. And then they eat dessert and then after that they drive back and talk about how they like each other. And that's about it.
- Grace
3) They would share food.
-Emma
WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT WAS TURNING SOUR?
(1)
I would just like start over. Like, "No no no, wait!"
-Ian
2)
Umm, I would just say, "No, stop talking! I don't like you anymore! Please...go away!"
Grace
3)
I would do nothing. Just walk away.
Emma
WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?
(1)
Uh, right now. (Plants one on her mom.)
- Emma
(2)
When you're the age. About when you start dating. (Ian inserts..."Well....I'm dating, so I'm in luck.")
- Grace
(3) When you really like them and they like you back. But only on the cheek or something. Maybe on the forehead. It's not OK until teenager age to kiss on the lips.
- Ian
IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED?
(1)
I'm not doing it.
- Emma
2)
Married, so you could get babies. And you get an anniversary day!
-Grace
3) Married, because you have someone to spend time with you when you're all lonely.
-Ian
HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN'T GET MARRIED?
(1)
You would have no babies! Sweet little babies! And you'd never have an anniversary day. That stuff would not get invented if people don't get married. Life couldn't run and get more people if you didn't have getting married! That's how it goes!
- Grace
2) It would be different because that you would have no one to enjoy your life with and you wouldn't even be there!
-Ian
3)
I'm not sure.
-Emma
HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK?
(1)
You have to be kind to that person always and you have to respect what they say and you have to propose nicely and carry them all the way to the limo.
- Ian
2)
Silence.
-Emma
3) You would be with someone when they wanted to, and when you had work and they wanted to be with you really bad...CHANGE YOUR SCHEDULE. Always love them and do stuff what they want. And that's about it!
-Grace
