“The honeymoon phase”- the beginning of a new relationship, a time of mostly uninterrupted romantic bliss! Every couple loves this period in their relationship. It’s a time where you get to know more about your married life, you partner as well as yourself.
But here’s a thing though, people sometimes entirely end up hating this phase. And the reason, you tend to have the most unrealistic expectations about how wonderful and blissful the relationship will be but end up disappointed. The honeymoon period is deeply overrated and far from the best times of any solid relationship! And here are 4 reasons why.
1. You stress yourself over small things
The first few months of a relationship is all about those small things. And you definitely want everything around your marriage to be perfect. That could be the reason why you end up stressing yourself. So it’s important that you understand to let go of things and remember that sometimes imperfection is actually perfect.
2. You feel all your date nights need to be fancy
People do tend to try harder early in a relationship to impress each other, like dressing up for dates, going out for a fancy dinner, etc. So this getting to know stage is associated with people putting more effort into the relationship, and that feels more romantic! But nothing tells you that you need to stop doing the same after the phase is over. If you feel like you’ve been couching it too much and miss getting dressed up for a date, you can just do it any time you want to!

3. You feel never to fight is a status to maintain
Most couples have fights in relationships. And if it’s your first fight as a couple, which could be over something as innocuous as a misread emoji, it feels so much worse. But once you are done with the honeymoon phase, you understand each other in a better way. And as two people start to get more serious about each other, they start merge their lives together. That means that they’ll interfere with each other but not over silly things.
4. Lot’s of sex, but still not the best sex
At the beginning of any relationship its obvious that you and your partner tend to get in the bed all the time. And, honestly that’s great as long as he is treating you right and it’s leading towards a healthy relationship. And with time its normal for sexual frequency to decline, as passion does! But that very frequent sex is not necessarily a sign that the relationship is especially good. Somethimes just lying down and cuddling with your partner can be the best moment in your relationship. Let’s just say don’t let the honeymoon phase create any misassumptions about your relationship.
