The following was written by children as to how do you decide whom to marry.
1. 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
2. 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
3. What do you think your mom and dad have in common? Both don't want any more kids. Lori, age 8
4. When is it okay to kiss someone? When they're rich. Pam, age 7
5. When is it OK to kiss someone? The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that. Curt, age 7
6. 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!)
