Little Charlie and Sally were only 10 years old, but they just knew that they were in love. One day they decided that they wanted to get married, so Charlie went to Sally’s father to ask him for her hand. Charlie bravely walked up to him and said “Mr. Drew, me and Sally are in love and I want to ask you for her hand in marriage.”

Thinking that this was the cutest thing, Mr. Drew replied, “Well Charlie, you are only 10. Where will you two live?” Without even taking a moment to think about it, Charlie replied “In Sally’s room. It’s bigger and we can both fit there nicely.”

Still thinking this is just adorable, Mr. Drew said with a huge grin, “Okay then how will you live? You’re not old enough to get a job. You’ll need to support Sally.” Again, Charlie instantly replied, “Our allowance…Sally makes 5 bucks a week and I make 10 bucks a week. That’s about 60 bucks a month, and that’ll do us just fine.” By this time Mr. Drew was a little shocked that Charlie had put so much thought into this. So, he thought for a moment trying to come up with something that Charlie wouldn’t have an answer for. After a second, Mr. Drew said, “Well Charlie, it seems like you have got everything all figured out. I just have one more question for you. What will you do if the two of you should have little ones of your own?”

Charlie just shrugged his shoulders and said, “Well, we’ve been lucky so far….”
