From the Mouths of Babes

Cami found this great little article the other day on Daily News Dig and sent it to me. The author, Chris Hughes, shared some questions that small children were asked about marriage and their answers. It's pretty funny. Here are our favorites.

Question: "What is the right age to get married?"
Answer: "Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then." -Camille, Age 10

Question: "How can a stranger tell if two people are married?"
Answer: "You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids." -Derrick, Age 8

Question: "What do most people do on a date?"
Answer: "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

Question: "Is it better to be single or married?"
Answer: "It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them." -Anita, Age 9

Question: "How would the world be different if people didn't get married?"
Answer: "There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there?" -Kelvin, Age 8

Question: "How would you make a marriage work?"
Answer: "Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a truck." -Ricky, Age 10

I must say Ricky is pretty wise for his age. :)

You should totally check out the rest of them. They're all pretty funny.

Have a great day!

I work with kids at my elementary school, and yes, they are always saying the cutest, but sometimes the most innocently honest, things.

  7. Thanks for giving me my day's dose of laughter! Children are priceless! No wonder Jesus said that we have to become like them in order to enter His Kingdom!

  8. I love hear kids views on things. They are always so straightforward about things.
