KPS: Not a Honeymoon anymore?

 Did anyone see the new KPS about "it's not a honeymoon if you don't take it within a month of your wedding..."

I call bullshiiit, but thats just me. What about people in the military, students, etc that may not be able to have time off/away within a month of the wedding? My FI and I will be going on a honeymoon in Janurary during Winter Break and we'll be getting married in October. Sorry but I can't miss a 1 or 2 weeks of school. And it's still my honeymoon. If anyone says other wise they can kick my fat @$$.

Ok, I'm done venting, that just really got me riled up for some reason.

    I think honeymoon connotates a whole lot of sex, whereas vacation doesn't.

    In that case I never took a honeymoon. Silly Disney gave us a room with 2 twin beds that squeaked horribly and had no free rooms to switch into!

    Are you kidding me!  NOT OKAY!

    I plan on having sex until I die, honeymoon, vacation, or whatever.  TMI?  Meh.

    Frankly I think honeymoons are honeymoons until after the first anniversary - because techinically you can still receive gifts until a year after your wedding, and you're still called newlyweds until a year after your wedding.

    But for someone to say that a honeymoon isn't a honeymoon unless it happens immediately is dumb.

    What about second honeymoons?

    Nope, definitely doesn't count. You'll have to take another one now.

    [QUOTE]Since it says "within a month," I'm guessing the KPS poster didn't go immediately, either.  They probably went on their honeymoon within a month. If they had gone within 6 months, their KPS probably would have said, "if you don't go within 6 months..." I equate stuff like this with the people who say, "There is no need to spend more than 5k on a wedding."  Yup, because THEY spent 5k.

    I think you're right. I wouldn't be surprised if this poster is one of those who responds on E-related threads "well we're registering for money/writing 'adults only' on the invites/including registry info on the invites and no one seems bothered by it.... [so that makes it okay]"

    I almost didn't have sex on my wedding night either ;) We've made up for it since though.

    Yeah, my H got really drunk and I had to put him to bed. We've been together for almost 5 years, and he's been drunk maybe 3 times. My best friend's fiance' got him trashed. Thanks.

    You know Jas, at this point I didn't get a "real" proposal, want new wedding ring, and need to go on a "real" honeymoon. I'm feeling cheated! Want to come to my "real" wedding?

    *note* For those of you thinking I've gone off the deep end it's an inside joke :)
  • Options
    I'll come to your real wedding. But it's only real if it costs lots of $$$$. And don't worry, I won't tell anyone that you're already married.

    I can have a shower too right? Because I never did that the first time around...

    Of course, and a bachelorette party too.  BTW, you are needed in the Pretty Little Liars thread.

    Excellent...I'm going to start planning this wedding. Help me find venues, price is no object because my parents will gladly open up their retirement for my second wedding.

    Does this mean that because we're going overseas slightly after our 1 year anniversary, we can't say that we're going over to celebrate?

    A HM is what you make it. When my parents were married almost 30 years ago, they were married on Saturday and went back to work on Monday. The first "vacation" they took was when I was 10. They're planning a trip to Aruba next year and I'm calling that their HM.

    There's actually a huge difference between a honeymoon and a vacation; on a vacation I can get away with doing a little work each day on the computer, on the honeymoon I can't. :-)

    And betrothed, I'm disgusted with most of the comments that you have posted. I don't think I've ever read such judgmental comments in my life. I'm so lucky that the girls I speak to on theknot are nothing like you...I would've never come on here for ADVICE if I would've encountered a big a bitch as you. I genuinely feel awful for your children or your future children, and I think it would be irresponsible of YOU not to invest in their future therapy sessions starting now. Because trust me when I tell you honey, they're gonna need it. ~jcaruncho2010

    I agree with the KPS, but I also agree that I dont know why it matters so much.

    I think that if you go back to work in between the wedding and the honeymoon it defeats the whole point and you might as well not go.  Tongue out

    We were going to go on our HM right after the wedding (so a real one!) but then since I enrolled back in school we won't be able to.  We're now planning a "vacation" for our 1 year anniversary.  Seriously, who the f*ck cares?  It's going to be fun either way!  Oh and we're going to Vegas, I suppose the next thing is that's not a real HM place because it's not a resort/beach.  ::rolls eyes::

    To me, a honeymoon is the first vacation you take as a couple after you get married. No matter how long it is after you get marrried.

    This. KPS has turned into this huge ridiculous thing that is mainly used for taking cheap, spineless shots at other posters. It's sad that it was taken to that level and that people don't have the balls to just say what they feel.

    KPS also makes me realize just how many judgmental, petty people there are in this world. Gross.

    ETA: TBPS is so much worse. It's disgusting how they rip each other apart. It scares me that these are the idiots that are raising the worlds children.

    Aaaand i repeat. maybe if people stop reading/responding to KPS it will go away.

    and ditto nebb. i agree with the KPS but i don't see why it's important enough to make a KPS about or argue over.

    ditto!

    it was cool at first, i admit. but it's one of those things that needs to be put out of its misery. i stopped reading it the day someone posted a KPS about effing their dog or something...it jumped the shark that day.

    Eh, no biggie for us. We only had a day by ourselves after the wedding, anyway. My family was with us still, and I hardly ever get to see them.

    We've vacationed together several times before, and lived together for almost 2 years before getting married, so it was like a vacation anyway. We've got plans for a bunch of little "vacations" like that, so it works for me.

    PS - and I thought it was a lame KPS too.

    VG - my dad ALWAYS works on trips - vacation or no. He can't not do it, unless he can't get a wireless signal for his phone.
