    Hardly any. Everything we did, we did together. Isn’t that kinda the purpose of a HM?

    How do you guys differ? It is your honeymoon, the point is really to spend time together. Not saying you have to hold hands while you pee. But a honeymoon is meant to spend time enjoying your partner’s company.

    We went to Jamacia for 2 weeks. He liked to go into our air conditioned room to cool down but I would usually stay out by the pool or sit on the balcony reading a book. I also went to a few early morning yoga classes, and went on one quick gym session by myself while it was cloudy. Also he could stay by the pool while I would go wander or get some fresh coconut juice from the coconut man – but that was literally for 5 minutes!

    We do have different interests and personalities. And being on an island for 2 weeks where you only know one other person, I think 5 minutes away from them is needed from time to time!

    We did everything together. That said, our Honeymoon was one week. I know that sometimes people have month-long honeymoons, and if that were the case, I probably would have wanted a little “me” time.

    The only time we spent time apart was when I went to get a massage one morning while he stayed in the room and slept in. We had a free couples massage with our stay at Couples resort, but my husband doesn’t like massages so I got both of our massages. I purposely scheduled it for 10 AM so that I would be back at a reasonable time for my husband to wake up and for us to start our day. So I would say btwn the walk across the resort and my massage we spent a total of maybe 1.5 hrs apart. If that. Other than that we were together the whole time.

    The only time we spend apart was if he wanted to run out to the corner store for something after I had gotten ready for bed. We were in NYC so I think he just loved being able to walk to the corner and get whatever he wanted.

    I think it depends on the situation.  If this is a once in a lifetime trip to somewhere he has always wanted to go, I can understand why he has a list of thirty things, but that sounds like a lot to me, and I’m not the kind of person who sits around on vacation.  Thirty things over a week is more than four things per day. Unless a number of those are things you would do anyway – say eat dinner at a particular place, so it’s really just specifying where to eat – this sounds less like a vacation and more like a checklist.

    Don’t worry too much about what is normal.  Whatever you work out that seems fair to both of you is fine.  Maybe he can drop some of his list for this trip to spend more time with you, and you can accept that he’ll do a few things on his own (which it sounds like you are willing to do).

    I did not have my honeymoon as I am not married yet. But we will not be spending time apart. Its a Honeymoon. We love hiking, bike riding, site seeing, going to the beach, etc so we will do it all together.

    I am not a sit at the beach kind of person and even though we went to Bali we did none of that (touring, scube diving, shopping, eating etc), we did do some pool sitting and reading. I could only handle a little bit of that so I sat at the bar across the pool. So we weren’t technically together, but near. I think once I went for a long walk and shop by myself too.

    Also I had trouble adjusting to the time change so I was up at 3 AM every morning and read until about 6 when he got up. If that counts.

    We’ll be on a cruise so I imagine we’ll be joined at the hip at all times… I don’t like to be alone with strangers and I get lost easily. On the islands I’ll be holding his hand the entire time just because I’m terrified of the ship leaving without us lol.
