The Lighter Side: The honeymoon

Donald V. Mehus

The happy ceremony of marriage takes place of course anytime throughout the year.

Still, for many who tie the knot, the month of June is the grand traditional time for this auspicious occasion.

First though, before the actual wedding, come the often elaborate preparations leading up to the big event, followed by the honeymoon to places near or far. And then the big awakening: the formal honeymoon comes to an end. But what really marks the onset of this post festum? A range of many signs, depending on the couple, point to this grand finale—or is it, instead, to a real beginning?

We are sure that our readers have interesting views—or experiences—relating to the subject, and we’ll be happy to share your thoughts about them. Just complete—and send us—this sentence: “You know your honeymoon is over when…”

Best wishes for a happily married life. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
