In Canada, February 2012, when a Grade 3 (8-9 years old) boy was asked this question he told his parents that he had married his best friend, James, in a mock wedding ceremony. All the Grade 3 children at this school in Hamilton, Ontario got “married” and celebrated afterwards with cake and ice cream.
