I never noticed a honeymoon period wearing off. Our relationship has changed in the past 3.5 years as we got to know each other better and become more and more comfortable with each other. We still have a ton of fun and hardly ever fight, and I feel like things have just gotten better with time ๐Ÿ™‚

I always kinda wait for it to fade but I can’t say it really has in my relationship … except maybe less making out for hours and hours and more just spending time together communicating.

3 days. Ha!  I’m only half kidding.  We really should have taken a honeymoon instead of jumping right back into our life and working 50 hrs/week.  And our house is still a mess and neither of us is motivated to clean it.

@WillyNilly:  lol i don’t think she meant your actual honeymoon!  I think she meant the honeymoon period of a relationship, where everything is still “new”

I don’t know, OP, I’d say that I feel crazy about my Fiance and we’ve been dating nearly 3 years.  I never felt this way about any of my exes and with all my exes, the honeymoon period lasted 3-4 months and that was that.

Heh, about 2 days into our ACTUAL honeymoon when we discovered on our once in a life time trip to Italy we had almost NO money because my new husband forgot his credit card…. It was a bit ugly. But that isn’t to say we aren’t still goofy newly-weds still, it just hasn’t been all bliss.

Love love LOVE hearing that some of you are still in it after many years.  I think that will be the case with us.  We’re a little over a year and we still make people sick, lol. ๐Ÿ˜‰

We’ve been together 5.5 years and we still are. Sometimes it comes and goes though.

I love hearing the longterm honeymoon phase stories.  ๐Ÿ™‚  We’ve been together over a year, getting married next month.  We still feel like “pinch me I must be dreaming” about each other.  I tell him every day how lucky I am, but he always says he’s the lucky one.  It has been bliss.  I’m sure it will continue.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Honestly, I don’t think we had a honeymoon phase (or we’re still in it, because our relationship has never been anything but what it is now). 

We’ve been together for 6 years, lived “in sin” for 5 1/2, and got married last month. We’ve had all the major discussions, and made the big choices (finished college together, bought a house, established our careers, etc) We’ve had some rough patches, but nothing too terrible, and never had a point (to my knowledge) where either of us considered ending things.  

We both spoil eachother in our own way, and we apprecieate eachother for the little things we each do.  Who knows… maybe that’s not normal? I’d think it would be a pretty sad relationship if it ever ended.

The phase when the chemicals were ridiculously active lasted 2 months or so where we could literally not stand being away from each other. Then we just moved in together. We’re much more in love and still cute and everything, but it’s not like it’s brand new. I still get super excited to see him whenever I’m off work and think about him all the time, but there isn’t the “omg does he want to marry me am I going to get to see him tonight I wonder if he misses me” crazy feelings anymore, because we know the answers to those questions lol.

I don’t know if we had a honeymoon phase, but that was my fault! I was pretty CRAZY at the beginning.  I played so many games with my exes (playing hard to get, etc) and when I met my husband I told myself that I would be 100% honest and authentic all the time.  Well, I think I took it a little far! I was way too needy, insecure, and didn’t hide any of it! (I had some abandonment/father issues!)Then I realized he wasn’t going anywhere and calmed down! I’m still honest with him but not insecure. I think if we had a honeymoon phase it was in our 2nd year when I moved back from NYC and we moved in together.  That was awesome! It lasted about two years and picked back up again after the wedding! Luckily, even when we’re not in a honeymoon phase, we’re still in love and best friends, so it’s always fun!
