No matter how fiery they may start, most relationships settle in and get a little duller after a while.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s exhausting to be on fire all the time, especially as you get older. At some point you just want someone to share your life with in a way that’s calm and simple and reassuring.
But for better or for worse, there’s almost certainly going to come a point where you realize the honeymoon is over, like these anonymous folks did.
10. It’s already past
And we haven’t even had the literal honeymoon yet.
9. What’s the poop scoop?
Tidings of comfort and joy.
8. Only the necessities
That’s called stress, yo.
7. He’s a keeper
Fun fact: because my mom only ever bought ginger ale when I was sick, I now associate the taste of ginger ale with being sick and I can’t drink it.
6. The temper tantrum
I’d like to know more about what exactly the cigarette issue was.
5. The fart of war
There really are no winners here.
4. Can’t unsee
Ah, grow up.
3. The cheat
I’d say more than that phase is probably over.
2. You can pick your husband…
Sweet cupin’ cakes!
It’s the big ol’ ghost that haunts us all.
There’s no denying that the honeymoon phase must end, like all good things. But that doesn’t mean the love goes away.
Have you had a realization like this?
