We know kids say the funniest things, but what are their thoughts on marriage?
Arizona Jewish Life asked the staff at the Early Childhood Center at the Valley of the Sun Jewish Community Center in Scottsdale to ask some of their preschoolers their thoughts on marriage.
The following are the questions and their answers:
What does it feel like to be married?
Lovely, you get to dip them. (dance)
It feels good. Because you love them.
Exciting, because you have your own best friend every night for dinner and bedtime.
It feels like love.
It is a happy time, you dance.
You get earrings, necklaces and a ring.
How old do you have to be to get married?
40 years old
24 years old
100 years old
48 years old
18 years old
What do people do at a wedding?
You get lifted in a chair and you dance.
You have a big party and eat.
You have a party.
They dance and have a party.
Judging from their responses, they all get the fact that a wedding is a joyous occasion, and that it usually involves dancing and a party. Sofia M. sees an added bonus of new jewelry and I imagine that Parker’s mom may or may not be excited at the age he plans to wed. Emme had some words of wisdom that we all can agree with – it really doesn’t get any better than sharing dinner and bedtime with your best friend!
