Love and Marriage

Preaching Magazine Illustrations

Kids were invited to answer some important questions about marriage.

When is it OK to kiss someone?
When they’re rich. (Pam, age 7)
The law says you have to be 18, so I wouldn’t 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?
I don’t know which is better, but I’ll tell you one thing. I’m never going to have sex with my wife. I don’t want to be all grossed out. (Theodore, age 8)
It’s better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them. (Anita, age 9)

How would you make a marriage work?
Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a truck. (Ricky, age 10)
