I’ll go with PPs and say 1 year, however it’s been 8 months for us and I don’t really feel like a newlywed, it’s just us and our life and I love it but it’s not super crazy new feeling anymore. I’m still taken aback sometimes when I have those, “wow, we’re really, finally married!” moments, but they’re occasional. It just feels right to me!

I think a year is what we ca;; “newlyweds” around here. I remember my friend telling me <br />”we aren’t newlyweds any more 🙁 just after their one year anniversary came.

I’ve been married for almost 9 months now and I still get a giddy feeling when someone calls me ‘wife’! I don’t really have the newlywed feeling any other time, I did when I was changing my name and doing all that exciting new stuff though! We’d been together 6.5 yrs and living together for almost 4yrs when we got married so that could be part of it too.
I think you’re officially not newlyweds anymore after a year though.

I think the technicalities are irrelevant…you’re either married or unmarried!
My grandma and grandpa got married in the fifties and he was working about 10 hours away from their hometown at the time. He came home for a visit, they got married, and the next day she moved to where he lived. They lived there for 32 years til he retired and she tells me, “My honeymoon was 32 years long!” Now THAT’s the spirit! 🙂

dated for 7 years and married for 1. our engagment year was kind of LD and our 1st year was def. long distance. we had to postpone our honeymoon till this ocvtober. a year and a half after our wedding. DH just got back a month ago. after our one year. we still feel like newlyweds but have barly seen each other! so thats prob why. even after dating so long we have had a lot of transitions. i think that continues threw out your whole marriage though.
i agree with your statment. i guess it depends whos looking at them. as far as newborns, that seems so soon. i call any baby under 6 months a new born ;-P i also dont have kids though.

Well, I have been married for almost 3 years and while some days I feel like we have been married forever (together 6, known eachother for 10 years) other days I still feel like a newlywed. Most days, I still feel like a newlywed. I love it! 🙂 I believe you are a newlywed for as long as you feel you are a newlywed.
