So my husband and i were together for 6 yrs. before he popped the question and got married. We are a total of 7 yrs together, but i always feel like the first time i saw him…Buttlerflies in my belly and all…and when he leaves me even for a day i hate it! (work trips)….is this too long to be in your honeymoon stage? my firends tells me to get over it….the funny thing is that i don’t wanna get over it….i love feeling this way and he feels the same…lol…. Are any of you bees in your noneymoon stage longer than what “society” expects you to be? please be kind 🙂

Can’t say that I am in the same situation because I have only been with my FI two years, but I am still in the “honeymoon” stage. I miss him when he’s gone and I hate being away from him. I guess I wouldn’t really call it a “honeymoon” stage, I call it love!

Eh, depends on how you go about it. It’s totally fine to miss your husband when he goes out of town without you. That’s love! But if you get overly dramatic about it every time he goes away, I’d be an annoyed friend. Love her to death, but my sister does this when she has to leave her husband for a weekend for work or something. The world is treated to hourly facebook updates on how she won’t be whole again until she’s back home, along with updates down to the minute on how long until they’re together again. I tend to block her updates when I know they’ll be apart. :p

Why would they want you to get over feeling in love and excited about your husband? That’s ridiculous! Sounds like they’re jealous they don’t have that :).

We’ve been together 3 years now, and I still miss him when he is gone for a day (or even less sometimes, which seems silly, but that’s how I feel!), and I still get warm fuzzies from how much I love him and how awesome he is on a very regular basis. There is NOTHING wrong with that!
I agree with the not-shouting it from the rooftops every three minutes thing, but feeling that way is a wonderful thing, and not something to “get over”

I agree, we are a little over 3 years and married 26 days and I am still way honeymooning…butterflies and all. I love it when my heart skips a beat when I hear his voice or he walks into the room. We work together so we don’t have a lot of “apart” time but I’m not complaining! I hope it never goes away! Just curious, what is the “average” honeymoon stage?

We’ve been together six years and we still send each other occasional texts during the work day just to say “i miss you.’ He has to go out of town for a field trip (for real) next weekend (again, for real) and he was SO sad when he found out. We’ll be apart for almost 30 hours and neither of us is pleased about it at all. I wouldn’t ever post anything like that publicly on FB though. That’s when I judge people.

I remember reading that a small percentage of couples continue to have the “just met” butterflies in the stomach feeling about their parter after years of being together (I think with most couples it wears off by month 6). Consider yourselves lucky, you will always be like teenagers in love and it will keep you young 🙂

Hey, we all got different ways of being together….you rock on with your butterflies baby! It’s a good thing, my sister and her FI are real sweeties on each other, hand holding and smooches, works for them…Mr. 99 and I, we kinda like it with a little bit of vinegar, and a crap ton of sarcasm…I love the man into hell and back, but we aren’t sweet…we run hot

Meh, we’re not the clingy type like that. Its fine, plenty of people are like that. But FI and i have always been happy to seperate. It makes it that much better when we come back together.

They’re haters! Been with my FI 3 years, lived together for 2.5 and the honeymoon stage definitely ended a lot sooner with all my exes and it’s still ongoing with my FI. Certainly, there are days I’m a little less “in love” with him, but I would say we’re honeymooners and I hope it lasts for life – and anyone who hates it should go find themselves a man that makes them feel this way, too!

Hey, enjoy that feeling! In the beginning, I was the same way with the butterflies and it lasted for quite some time.
I’m a newlywed and definitely miss him when we’re not together. Actually tonight I have to go back to my school for Back to School Night, so I’m sleeping at my mom’s to avoid the drive at 8:30 pm to have to do it all over again at 6:30 am. And he was soooo sad when I left this morning and it’s going to be so hard sleeping tonight.. our first night sleeping apart

I think there’s a difference between a honeymoon stage and codependence. I would consider not being able to spend a day apart codependence. Butterflies and happiness and excitement is something we’ve got after years and years – I think that’s just love!
