Love and Marriage:

  • "If falling in love is anything like learning how to spell, I don't want to do it. It takes too long." -- Glenn, age 7

  • "Love is like an avalanche where you have to run for your life." -- John, age 9

  • "I think you're supposed to get shot with an arrow or something, but the rest of it isn't supposed to be so painful." -- Manuel, age 8

  • "No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something to do with how you smell. That's why perfume and deodorant are so popular." -- Mae, age 9

  • "Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball is pretty good too." -- Greg, age 8

  • "Once I'm done with kindergarten, I'm going to find me a wife." -- Tom, age 5

  • "On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date." -- Mike, 10

  • "I'm in favor of love as long as it doesn't happen when Dinosaurs is on television." -- Jill, age 6

  • "One of the people has freckles, and so he finds somebody else who has freckles too." -- Andrew, age 6

  • "My mother says to look for a man who is kind. That's what I'll do. I'll find somebody who's kinda tall and handsome." -- Carolyn, age 8

  • "It gives me a headache to think about that stuff. I'm just a kid. I don't need that kind of trouble." -- Kenny, age 7

  • "One of you should know how to write a check. Because, even if you have tons of love, there is still going to be a lot of bills." -- Ava, age 8

  • "When somebody's been dating for a while, the boy might propose to the girl. He says to her, 'I'll take you for a whole life, or at least until we have kids and get divorced.'" -- Anita, 9

  • "I'm not rushing into being in love. I'm finding fourth grade hard enough." -- Regina, age 10

  • "Most men are brainless, so you might have to try more than once to find a live one." -- Angie, age 10

  • "A man and a woman promise to go through sickness and illness and diseases together." -- Marlon, age 10

  • "[Being] 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 figure something out. I'd just phone my mother and have her come over for some coffee and diaper-changing." -- Kirsten, age 10

  • "Love is foolish...but I still might try it sometime." -- Floyd, age 9

  • "Love will find you, even if you are trying to hide from it. I been trying to hide from it since I was five, but the girls keep finding me." -- Dave, age 8
