If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you.

My cousin Jeremy is marrying Michelle today and we are so disappointed that we can’t be there to help them celebrate their big day (because when the Hanke’s come, they bring the fun)!  I suppose they are getting along without us somehow, but I just wanted to send out our congratulations to them and let them know that we are thinking of them!

The title is one of my all time favorite quotes from Winnie the Pooh because if Pooh says it then you know it has to be true!  I believe if you can find the person that makes this true, then you will have a lifetime of happiness!  I also believe that kids speak the truth (and are also, almost always, funny) so here is everything you ever wanted to know about marriage…according to kids.

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

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

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

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, 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

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
dump truck.
— Ricky, age 10

Best wishes to Jeremy and Michelle.  We hope that you have a lifetime of friendship, love, but most importantly laughter!  Hugs and kisses from the Hanke’s of Minnesota!
