Thoughts on Kyra and Maeve.

So how do you decide who to marry?

"I think that they should be if someone likes math and the other person doesn't, then they can help each other out. Some people also look for if they are 20 years apart, then that's bad....." ----Kyra, age 8.5.

"I go to them and I ask them and marry them when I'm still a kid." ----Maeve, age 4.5.

What is the right age to get married?

"Probably about when you are 21-25....." ----Kyra

"10 years old....." ----Maeve

How can a stranger tell if two people are married?

"They are walking around in the store together and if you see two people walking around a house gardening or something, then they have to be married..." ----Kyra

"They got married this year...." ----Maeve

What do you think your mom and dad have in common?

"They both use the same soap...." ----Maeve

"They both share a room and that's really nice....." ----Kyra

What do most people do on a date?

"They eat for sure....and sometimes they go to a movie or go dancing...." ----Kyra

"They kiss...." ----Maeve

When is it ok to kiss someone?

"When someone tells you to....." ----Maeve

"When they are on a date or when you are married...." ----Kyra

Is it better to be single or married?

"It's better to be married....because then you can kiss." ----Maeve

"It's better to be married....because then you are able to share sad moments and you're able to have someone look out for you." ----Kyra

How would the world be different if people didn't get married?

"Sad....because there wouldn't be any kids." ----Maeve

"Sad....because we wouldn't even be alive because nobody was able to make us be born." ----Kyra

How would you make a marriage work?

"If your husband doesn't look pretty, tell him that he still looks pretty...." ----Maeve

"I would go on a date and ask him if he wants to marry me without the ring. If he says 'yes', then I would go out and pay for the ring after he said 'yes' and then we would get married...." ----Kyra
