When we were dating and even now in our marriage, Jared and I have had several people tell us we were/are “just in the honeymoon phase” and “don’t get used to it, it won’t last”.
Both of us have been so confused by what that even means. Was that supposed to be encouraging or terrifying to us? When we were dating, we eventually determined that the honeymoon phase probably meant a “stage” in our relationship when things are really good between us. No fights, a lot of quality time spent together, obnoxious hand-holding, super cute Instagram pics and mushy captions, etc. (Ps – I’m an excessively sarcastic person – so I hope you picked up on the sarcasm there)
We kind of brushed off the comments and moved on. But as often as we were told our good times wouldn’t last, we ultimately became disheartened by the issue that others were pointing to.
