kids' view on marriage and relationships

> 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."
> Kirsten, 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
>
> HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?
> --------------------------------------------------
> "Married people usually look happy to talk to other people."
> Eddie, 6
>
> "You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the
> same kids."
> Derrick, age 8
>
> WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON?
> --------------------------------------------------
> "Both don't want no 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 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 OK 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
>
> 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, 9
>
> "Single is better, for the simple reason that I wouldn't want to change no
> diapers. Of course, if I did get married, I'd just phone my mother and
> have her come over for some coffee and diaper-changing."
> Kirsten, age 10
>
> 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
>
> "You can be sure of one thing - the boys would come chasing after us just
> the same as they do now."
> Roberta, age 7
>
> HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK?
> -----------------------------------
> "Tell your wife that she looks pretty even if she looks like a truck."
> Ricky, age 10

we've been going to the church called grace. it's actually on 49 going towards greenville and we really like it. our kind of music, people and preaching! they are totally cool there.

i would love to do family photos/couples/kids sometime! i was actually thinking around labor day for your guys' pictures...or later in the fall for the reasoning being: 1- after labor day i will be working 7 days a week until who knows when...probably right up until thansgiving 2-the cooler weather will be better (if you're wanting outside) plus the kids wouldn't be sweaty and antsy due to warm weather. we can do some for winter too. i would love to take some all the time. i am not charging right now because i need to build my portfolio and you will be my "guinea pigs" in a totally loving-not piggish way:) lemme know what works best and we will make it happen! hugs
