According to Brides.com (and they should know, right?) the term “honeymoon” stems from a Scandinavian tradition in which, during the first month of marriage (the first “moon,”) the couple would drink fermented honey to improve the likelihood that they would conceive a child.
Now, I’m no doctor, but I’m pretty sure boozy honey isn’t going to increase fertility, though it WILL probably increase the frequency of acts thereto. Plus, it’s probably real fun to just be generally drunk for a month with your new spouse.
Today, a lot of us still do the drinking thing, but we like, go somewhere else to do it, which is what makes it special. Still, the honeymoon must end, and you’ll know it when it does, just like these anonymous people did.

You’re gonna see it sooner or later!

I think you know the answer to that question.

A surprising number of these revolve around puking.

Everybody poops. Didn’t you know that? Somebody wrote a whole book about it.

I don’t know why but this one makes me a lot sadder than the others.
4. “Mad long”
Human bodies really aren’t that spectacular when you get right down to it.
3. “Wide open”
That’s the kind of intimacy they don’t tell you about.
2. “Our first real fight”
Everybody’s gonna have one.
1. “I guess that’s when…”
S**t just got real in here.
