This is completely random but I was deciding on a movie to watch the other day and read a description of one I was considering. One of the characters was described as being a “young newlywed”. As I watched the movie, this character revealed she’d be married to her husband for over 2 years. I know, I know, this is just a movie synopsis, but it made me wonder what everyone considers to be “newlywed”…especially since I sometimes feel that DH and I have surpassed the “newlywed” title at 7 months!

IT depends on how long the person you are talking to has been married.
For someone who has been married 30 years, 3 years is a newlywed. For someone who has been married 3 months, your 1 year anniversary makes you a veteran.
I am coming up on my 2 year in April so I would say 1 year or less, to me.

For me, I consider newlyweds those who have been married less than a year. After the one year anniversary I just think of them as plain ol’ married.

I stopped considering myself a newlywed after our first anniversary.

A year or less. After that, marriage isn’t new anymore.

Yeah, I kind of think it’s the first year of marriage. We’ve been married since July 2010, and I definitely don’t consider us newlywed.

Hmm I dunno, it’s all relative. I still feel like we are newlyweds, and it’s only been a year and 7 months. Though I am not surprised that in the Newlywed section, people would vote 1 year, haha.

I think after a year, the wedding itself isn’t exactly ‘new’ so you can’t be classified as newlyweds.
