All the old-fashioned and traditional couples were dreaming about “the day” and especially about the first days that follow after the long-waited “yes”. They would spend days and nights about getting to a mutual agreement between the two parts about the perfect destination for the honeymoon. The same would last from five to seven or even ten days. Depending on the budget available, it can last longer. Just because it is the first holiday together with your partner after you have said “yes”, it is conisdered to be the most spectacular one, the one that you are going to remember for a lifetime and that’s why the destination matters a lot. Normally the couples choose some unusual, lees known place just to make it even more romantic and adveturous.
However, “New York Times” have made a survey about this topic and came to a conclusion that there have been born a new trend among the couples. A songle honeymoon is in question on which each of the partners would choose a destination for himself and go there either with his best friends or alone, however avoiding the presence of the partner. The idea is to enjoy a little bit more his or her freedom before having to spend the rest of the life with the person they have chosen for themselves. It sounds challenging because you know you are just married, you go partying, you ought to enjoy to the fullest but show respect for your partner that’s doing exactly the same on the other side od the globe. It is a kind of test whether you can complete the task and it seems like the new couples are interested in the idea as it has a rising trend.
Another reason for this new yet popular idea is the difference between the old-fashioned and the new type of relationships. To be precise, the old couples wouldn’t live together nor do trips with their current partner untill they eventually get married. As the times have changed, the new couples would first live together, travel together, do everything together, even have kids before they get married. Therefore there is a need of freedom and privacy and the days right after the wedding, after spending so many hours together organizing “the day” are the best ones to enjoy it yourself.
The idea is not to destroy the brand new marriage but to give exactly the opposite effect. As each of them would spend a lots of days preparing the perfect day, the need of relaxing, reflecting and enjoying themself is inevitable and more than welcome. However, the old-fashioned and traditional couples are against this so called “unimoon” because they believe it is the perfect opportunity to destroy the beautiful thing that just have started. On the other hand the number of couples who are so into this brilliant idea is shocking and they already started its practice.
But this “solomoon” does not make the traditional couples bad or outdated in their beliefs. They just prefer the old way of celebrating the marriage with your partner and there’s nothing bad in it. At least nowadays everyone is as free as never before to do what they want wothout having to give explanation to the world.
