Kids' Ideas About Love

Kids, aged 5 to 10, were asked questions about what they thought of love and marriage. Here's what they said...

Caroline, England

"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

Sonya, The Netherlands

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

Sarah, Georgia
2.25 Today

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

Rocio, Mexico

"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

Becky, Philadelphia

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

Wanda, Canada

"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

Lola, Utah

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

Buckeroomama, Hong Kong

"[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

Emily, Italy

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

Happy Friday!!!
