How Do You Decide Who To Marry?

Well good Friday folks...ahhh! The weekend is here. I get to sleep in tomorrow!

Another bright note...our CFBA blog tour this week is doing very well. Karen Kingsbury's latest book, Like Dandelion Dust has steadily crept it's way up the Technorati Popular Book list, and now sits at #3! Great job to all the CFBA book reviewers who have posted and for the ones that will go up today!

Art Linkletter once said, "Ourt of the mouths of babes..." Here's some great ones!


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

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

No age is good to get married at. You got to be a fool to get married.
-- Freddie, age 6 (very wise for his age)

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 (Simple but highly effective!!)

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON?

Both don't want any more kids. -- Lori, age 8 (still weeping over this one!)

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

WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT WAS TURNING SOUR?

I'd run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and
make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns. -- Craig, age 9

WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?

When they're rich. -- Pam, age 7 (simply brilliant!!)

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 (seems a bit harsh to me).

IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED?

I don't know which is better, but I'll tell you one thing. I'm never going to have sex
with my wife. I don't want to be all grossed out.
-- Theodore, age 8 (this kid needs some counseling)

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)

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 (Yes there certainly would be a LOT of explaining!!)

And the #1 Favorite is........

HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK?

Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a truck hit her.
-- Ricky, age 10 (this kid is going to be a lawyer or a politician or both!!)
