Convo between my 7year-old students today

Josie: I have a new crusshhhhh

Matt: Me too! On a boy!

Pearl: You're a boy with a crush on a boy?

Matt: Yeah he's really cute.

Pearl: Oh.

(pause for a bit)

Matt: Boys can like boys. I just can't marry him because boys can't marry boys.

Me: Yeah they can. You can marry whoever you want.

Matt: Really?

Josie: YEAH my tia has a wife so now I have a titi and a auntie.

Matt: Okay. Then maybe I'll marry him.

Dave: (from across the room) No you can't you're seven.

(Age was apparently the only foreseeable problem anyone of my elementary schoolers could see with gay marriage.)
