Kids / Marriage

Whom to Marry?

Today’s is a special, family friendly, Canadian Thanksgiving blog. My fabulous ma, retired teacher of thirty years, sent me this email forward on marriage yesterday. I especially like the last one.

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

You have 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 (bless you child )

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

  1. I read all three of the books (it is a trilogy) a few mtnhos ago (I think it was May). My employer was going insolvent and the fact that it was an easy read (rather than annoying me) allowed me to dump my brain and relax, at one of the most stressful times of my entire career, so I am quite protective of Fifty Shades for that reason. I normally take a week to read a book and I read all 3 in a week despite working 3 days a week and having an active 2 year old.Anyway the difference between Fifty Shades and Jackie Collins et al, is the fact that Fifty Shades is eroticism. And this book has managed to make it mainstream. To ensure it got and stays mainstream, they add a thread of wholesome-ness by cleverly marketing it with the word mummy in there.I stumbled across it BEFORE the hype, as it turned out the girl in the office next to me had written an erotic short story and self-published it on Kindle.When I finished reading it, there was suggestions of other reads at the end, as is the way with Kindle, and I bought it, not knowing it was taking the world by storm.The way it is written did not bother me in the slightest.Also, the third book is a lot more of a romance (than sex hardcore) and because I loved the characters by then, I enjoyed that, and liked seeing them settle down. But you will hear people moan about the 3rd book as there was less sex, but for me it worked.I am a fan.LiskaP.S. I hopped here from your post on Brit Mums.
