How do you decide whom to marry? Ask the kids. They’re smarter than we think!


What do most people do on a date, according to children?

“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.” – Linette, age 8 (isn’t she a treasure!)

“On the first day, 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
