The honeymoon is a peculiarly modern creation. Building on wedding customs of Europe in the late 1800s, the honeymoon has evolved into a ritual that nearly all people in the United States and Canada practice and that has grown in popularity around the world (Bulcroft, Smeins, and Bulcroft 1999). The term honeymoon first appears in the sixteenth century in Thomas Blount’s Glossographia (1656), where he defines the honeymoon in terms of the waxing and waning of newlywed emotions. Specifically, “married persons that love well at first, and decline in affection afterwards: it is honey now, but will change as the moon.” Contemporary understandings of the honeymoon are far from this original lexicon, and the current emphasis on passion and romance as pivotal aspects of the honeymoon today seem paradoxical in light of Blount’s definition of the term.
1. It might sound silly to you, but going for a honeymoon is important to women because it gives both of you a chance to spend some quality time with the person you’ve chosen as your life partner.
2. Women really feel that a honeymoon right after marriage is important because it will help newlyweds to understand each other better.
3. It can also help in building a strong bond with your partner without the interference and watchfulness of relatives.
4. A honeymoon gives a couple quiet time to talk about their independent dreams as well as create dreams as a unit.
5. On a honeymoon, you have the privacy and alone time that you will never get if you are living with in-laws. You can relax and and just be who you are with each other.
