Honeymoons? Should You Take One?
Honeymoon? Weddings Are Stressful...
I worked with many couples who told me that they weren't taking a honeymoon. What? Their excuse was that they couldn't take the time off from work, etc. or that they didn't have the money.
Let me say this: Weddings are stressful. They are time-consuming--and they occupy every waking moment of the bride-to-be's existence, at the dismay of the poor groom-to-be, who's often pushed to the side... and that's not good!
Why You Need to Take a Honeymoon...
Like I said, grooms-to-be are often pushed to the side when it comes to planning a wedding by the very woman who has stolen their heart. For that reason, it's a good idea to take a few days off for a honeymoon.
The stress is over! The wedding is done! You're man and wife; get to know one another again. Relax, spend time together--and breathe! It will do wonders for your relationship.
Besides, after the stress and hard work of planning a wedding, a bride needs a few days to get it together and relax--and going back to work immediately following a wedding, is not the way to do it! i
Honeymoons: If Money Is Tight...
If money is tight, take a few days off for a road trip. Visit interesting places near the town in which you live, stay at "bed and breakfasts", and just relax. You'll be so glad you did...
When you return to work, you'll be a new person! Relaxed with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude for a wonderful wedding--and your new husband!
