My 5-yr-old niece's thoughts on marriage...

Bethany: James, you be the daddy.
James: K
Bethany: Who is the mommy?
James: I dunno.
Bethany: Well, who do you want to marry?
James: I donwantu.
Bethany: Yes you do. We're supposed to get married.
James: No, I don't want to. (more forcefully this time)
Bethany: Yes James, you have to find a friend who you love the best and you marry them. A girl. Someone who wants to follow Jesus like you.
James: No!!
Bethany: Yes!
James: NO!!!!

I adore it. She's spot on, eh?

And creepy how her brother acts just like some boys my own age :)
