As couples prepare for their wedding, many focus more on the ceremony, the color coordination, the reception, the photography, and many aspects of the wedding day. However, one of the most important areas that the couple needs to put in time and money is their honeymoon.
The honeymoon is a vacation or trip taken by the newly married couple––a period of blissful harmony, supreme happiness, utter joy and relaxation. Therefore, it is important for the couple to plan to take some days off work and other activities.
A period of two weeks to one month should be fine. We recommend that the couple travel away from where they normally live.
In the Bible days, the newly married man was not supposed to go to battle for one whole year. The reason? To “cheer up his wife which he hath taken”!
The biblically stipulated period for a honeymoon is one whole year! So if we can only afford two weeks to a month then we should go for it.
The honeymoon allows the couple maximum privacy to discover each other and to explore this whole new area of marriage.
It allows them to relate more intimately and share their lives together in one place, in one room and on one bed.
Here are some amazing things you can do on your honeymoon…sweet memory lane.
Take memorable pictures of yourselves during the honeymoon (not naked, please)!
Say nice things to each other: “I love you”, “I’m glad I married you”, “and you look beautiful”, etc. should be common in your conversations.
Embrace each other often and take naps or watch TV while one rests his/her head on the other’s lap or bosom.
Talk with each other on any matters of interest to enhance fellowship and friendship. Talk about the wedding event, people you were surprised to see, plans for new home, etc.
Feel free to kiss and give each other pecks on the cheeks, lips and back of hand as you walk around. Kissing and touching must not only be a prelude to sex.
Have sex as many times as you have energy to perform in a day. A good stock of energy booster drinks (like the Red Bull) they say, may do some good.
Feel free to have sex at any time of the day.
Explore having sex at different locations during the honeymoon. For example,in the bathroom, living room, bedroom, kitchen etc.
Try different positions taught during the marriage counseling.
Try having sex with your clothes on after returning from a walk.
Take turns to bath each other, playing with your bodies in the process.
Sometimes sleep naked in each other’s arms.
You may walk around naked, like Adam and Eve in the house or room if you are sure there will be no intruders.
Go for walks under moonlight or on a quiet road while holding each other hand- in-hand, around the waist, or around the shoulders. The husband may occasionally lift the wife if he has the strength to do so.
Swim or play games of interest, stealing glances at each other and touching each other, from time to time.
Watch an interesting film together (something with a romantic theme may be nice).
Go for sightseeing to amusing and interesting spots.
At lunch or dinner sit opposite each other and play with your bare feet under the table (watch out for onlookers).
Dress in a suggestive way by wearing see through dresses, short skirts and short blouses.
Of course, you must have your quiet times, praying and reading your Bibles individually. Share your quiet times with each other and pray together from time to time.
