Jonas on Marriage

I've been telling Jonas that I'm getting married to Erin for a few weeks now, to get him accustomed to the idea, he is excited and keeps asking if Grandma and Grandpa will sit with him while I get married. Yesterday, I was telling him again and he said, "Then you and Erin have to live in different places." I said, "Married people don't move apart, what do you mean?" He said "You and mommy were married and moved apart." I had to tell him that Mommy and I didn't move apart until the marriage was over, and that Erin and I would keep living together for a long, long time. It was a funny twist on what marriage is to a 4 year old with divorced parents. He did understand the difference by the end, and we were all laughing about what he had said.
