What Is The Meaning And Purpose Of Honeymoon? by ijele(m): 12:35pm On Nov 12, 2010
'Honey after our wedding,when will it be our honeymoon?' ,  'And sweetheart where re we  spending our honeymoon?', 'so baby how long re we staying there?',  bla.bla.bla,    There re so much fuss about Honeymoon; taking some days,weeks or months off; going 2 resorts,hotels or traveling outside de country,  all in de name of Honeymoon. My question is what is de purpose of honeymoon? Does it worth it or rather is it vital 2 marriage?

A honeymoon is a chance for a newlywed couple to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the stress they encountered from planning their wedding and attention they received from family and friends regarding their marriage.

It's a time for the two of them to relax and spend some romantic quality (and intimate) time together in a very special location,.


Hhmmm I wish to spend my honeymoon in the beach, i wish ,i wish wink wink

Well since its original purpose and meaning is lost,I can safely say its just for relaxation after the wedding stress.

Honeymoon is a time wen newly wedded get 2gether 2 relax and catch fun after the stress of wedding preparations. Mostly done somewhere outside d home. Its worth the while cos their wont be distractions from family n friends.

[b]The term honeymoon refers to the first month after a wedding,a time in which the bride and groom adjust to their new state of matrimony.This period of time received its name from a drink known as mead,which,in the early years of England, was served to the bride and groom at their wedding celebration and also before retiring every night for a full cycle of the moon.Mead,a fermented liquor with a base made of an abundance of honey,some water,and a few spices,was considered a fertility drink, and its consumption guaranteed the couple offspring.Combine the word honey from the mead with the cycle of the moon,and the word honeymoon is the result. grin wink grin

I am coming back later today to comment on why every newly wed should have a honeymoon and also have more at every anniversary of your wedding. Love that is as sweet as honey will always take you over the moon again and again. Couples should always have a honeymoon every year. Having honeymoon every year will help your marriage. What harms many marriages is when the honey is no longer sweet and the moon wanes.

I don't believe in honeymoon, however, if u hv got the budget and esp time, pls please urselves, but these days, guz need to be wiser and esp thrifty (economical mgt)!
Re: What Is The Meaning And Purpose Of Honeymoon? by MsSophista(f): 10:54am On Dec 18, 2011
The phrase was actually coined in England but always existed from the beginning of time. Similiar to Columbus discovering or coining America. Anyway, it's a time when a relationship & love so sweet is taken to the highest level of oneness, intimacy & pleasure (consummation) after marriage. But now days the concept is spoiled due to couples casting off restraint or delayed gratification. Something is definitely loss,

Re: What Is The Meaning And Purpose Of Honeymoon? by Oletunow(m): 5:07am On Dec 19, 2011
The real value that is left of honeymoon is bragging rights and status symbol, If it is met to be a time when the newly couples are to rest away from the hustling and bustling around them,

why don't we hear of people traveling from Nigeria to some village in Ghana or Togo or Cameroon for honeymoon? Why do people always desire some highly busy places like New York City, Paris, London, etc whose rate of stressfulness is even higher than that of places in Nigeria?

It is more poise and polish when you tell me that, you had your honeymoon in Paris instead of in Mbaise and Ladies especially gloats while saying it,
