I curled up around Ethan last night as he was falling asleep. My chin resting on the top of his head and my arms wrapped around him.
Ethan: Mom? I don't want to get married.
Me: Oh! Okay sweetie. You don't have to get married.
Ethan: I don't?
Me: Of course not.
Ethan: But then what will I do?
Me: What do you mean?
Ethan: I mean, will I have anything to do?
I had to think for a moment what he meant.
Me: Sweetheart. You don't have to be married to do stuff. You can do anything you want to do, and you do not have to be married.
Ethan: But then who will I live with? I want to live with someone but I don't want to marry them.
Me: Okay. You can live with someone and not be married to them.
Me: Who do you want to live with sweet face?
