Are We Still Newlyweds?

5 Oct

What time frame constitutes being a newlywed? 1 year, 2 years, 1.5 years?   Dr. B and I have been married for 1 year and 5 months.  Are we till considered newlyweds…or is the honeymoon – over?  For whatever reason I’ve been thinking about how much longer we have before our Newlywed status runs out.  When it does, I will have to change the name of my blog.  Am I late already in that regard?  I’m not one to mislead readers, and hold faux claim to a title that I’m no longer eligible for.   When does one said couple transition from newlywed status to just being – married?

    Good question. I was asking hubs that this past week. Are we not newlyweds any more? I kinda don’t wanna let it go!

    You can be forevery newly married if you look forward to every day! The minute you stop impressing or exciting each other then that is when the honeymoon is over:) Happy Newlywed for as long as you want:)

      So people fear ‘routine’ which can lead to complacency…and that’s no fun.

    I agree with Angie. I’ve been married, for 5 years. Those “ol married couples”, wave their hand and insist that I am “still a newlywed”, because we don’t have children. (Really???) Its annoying because what if we don’t want kids, but I digress… I’ll be a forever newlywed on a permenant honeymoon, then.

    Back to the question: I think less than two years is a newlywed 🙂

    I think it can last as long as you want between the two of you. As for what other people think, I’d say 2 years is average. But it’s still a new marriage until after 5 or so? I’m not sure, but I’m also very new to this marriage thing at all. We’re still under the 4 month mark. Heck, we haven’t even made it to a year after he proposed!
    Still, I’ve already though about what I’d call me blog as well, once I do pass that newlywed mark…whenever that is…
