I wonder whether the same conversation would've happened in my country as there are actually quite a few options possible even after the third 'no'.
      She was Dutch. It was around 1996, when marriage was more common than today.

        True. However, children are very old-fashioned.
        They know I'm gay, but they won't say a thing when I talk to a male colleague, but when I talk to a female colleague it has happened that a child came up to us and asked if we were in love.
        Most children want to get married, think it will be possible to become a famous singer or earn millions playing football/soccer.
        And if they could vote, most would vote for the Green Party.
        They still believe in dreams. Maybe that's why I love to work with children.

          90% of people moving out ad soon as they're 18? Maybe in the US or Scandinavia. In many Africa, muslim, Southern European countries (especially Italy) and East Asia, it's usual to live with your parents until you're married.
