Honeymoons are a time when the couple has some time alone away from family and other outside influences to focus on each other. They can spend the time having sex, getting to know each other better in various ways, and doing things together that make memories that will bring them closer together. That way they can have those moments where they share a memory that they don't share with anyone else right from the start.

In the old days, it used to be common for the couple to go visit the relatives who didn't make it to the wedding, thus allowing both sides of the family an opportunity to meet the new member of their families. Later it became a chance to go see exotic locations like Niagara Falls when they might never get another opportunity to be tourists.

Covering the moon in honey so that the space bees may one day visit Earth again and bless us with their delicious nectar.

The name comes from Viking days, a month of feasting with your new wife, including lots and lots of honeyed mead.

Of course, nowadays, you can get out of the bedroom a little--like to Paris or Maui, or such-like--but the idea of shutting out the outside world is still pretty key.

It's basically a vacation so you don't have to think about how you're spending the rest of your life with that person for a little while.

Yeah I never understood this. You get married, but then you have to go somewhere just for????? I can only assume it is an escape from the world you have to live in so you can live in a moment where you only worry about happiness together. I mean I get it, but then again I really don't.

I guess Marriage doesn't seem appealing to me in that aspect. Call me a downer, but if you are budgeting your happiness on a single day, and creating a memory on another budget. So are we to believe that money doesn't apply to creating the memory of happiness, because I think it does. You want to go on a honeymoon for happiness, so that means you can only find happiness on a budget. So I can basically go somewhere for nothing at all and create happiness the same way.

you know what? I guess its because I know the value of money now. Maybe one day when I don't know what to do with it I can have a honeymoon, because money is a funny thing. If you don't have it, you're not happy, so how can you create happiness without money?

Maybe its just me, maybe I just don't understand. The worlds a funny place. I remember My parents telling me when they went on their honeymoon, they payed next to nothing to go to Jamaica, and they still have some items they keep with them... That was over 20 years ago, and things have changed. People tell you not to worry about money, but how are you going to live? Where are you going to live?

What do I think about a honeymoon....... ask me in another 10 years, and my answer might be different.... Maybe... Maybe not.

Well the idea of a honeymoon is to have sex because traditionally it was the night that couples would consummate the marriage. But in the 21st century I doubt there's many virgins getting married. These days it should really just be about romance.

What do people even do on vacations with each other? I mean, together. Just seems weird to relax with another person. Movies? Sure, but what do people do together to relax that is relaxing?


Wait

You have gone on vacation with family members before, right?

They qualify as "other persons"

"Budgeting happiness" every minute of every day seems to be the quickest way towards an unhappy life

Yes, of course you'll have sex.

But you should also make memories that you can take with you for the rest of your life.

I never got to have a honeymoon when I married my wife. But I've tried to make it up to her.

No I haven't. If we did, I imagine we'd be doing our own thing. Our idea of relaxation includes spending time away from each other, since we hang out 90% of the time.

We ceased the opportunity for adventure and went on a road trip to the area around the Grand Canyon. We did tons of hiking, visited friends and relatives, sampled local food, and "relaxed" when we weren't doing all those other things. Honeymoon=vacation adventure!
