Triggers: A funny email sent by a friend

My Grump: Out of the mouths of babes and all that; these are priceless!

These children were asked

HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY?
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

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

HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?
You might have to guess, check if they are yelling at the same kids. -- Derrick, age 8

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON?
They both don't want any more kids. -- Lori, age 8

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

On the first date, they just tell each other lies and then they are interested enough to try a second date. -- Martin, age 10

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

I think if you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do. -- Howard, age 8
Children's Thoughts on Marriage
IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED?
It's better for girls to be single but not boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them. -- Anita, age 9

HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN'T GET MARRIED?
There would be a lot of kids to explain to, wouldn't there? -- Kelvin, age 8

And the #1 Favourite is .......

HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK?
I would tell my wife that she looked pretty, even if she looked like a dump truck. -- Ricky, age 10
