Recently a tweet went viral concerning the honeymoon phase. The writer tweeted: "The honeymoon phase doesn't exist when you fall for someone who is dedicated to making you feel loved or admired the ENTIRE time you're theirs. Stop normalizing the loss of affection in relationships, that is a choice, not a phase."

What are your thoughts on the tweet?

Do you think the honeymoon phase should go away?

Do you agree that if your in love the honeymoon phase never has to end?

Do you think it's realistic for the honeymoon phase to last forever?

    I don't think it's realistic to expect the honeymoon phase to last forever. But that also depends on what your definition is. My definition of the honeymoon phase is the first few month of a relationship where everything is sunshine and roses and you couldn't imagine ever arguing with each other cause your relationship is just that "perfect". Then reality hits, every couple argues, no matter how much you love someone they can still get on your last nerve.

    That being said, having a REAL relationship with someone after the honeymoon phase is much better in my opinion. It's just more meaningful. That doesn't mean you shouldn't still get butterflies every now and again, but it's less of having your head in the clouds and more of knowing without a doubt that no matter what life throws at you, you've found the person you want to be there with you through it all.

    I also don't think it's realistic to expect the honeymoon phase forever. But I'm sure this also means that they still make you giddy and excited in other ways that feel more calm because they're home to you.

    No matter what, you should have feeling of a "honeymoon phase" throughout you life with your partner. There will be times that are rough and difficult, but at the end of the day as long as you know you want to spend your life with this person and love them than that is all that matters.

    I don't think the honeymoon phase lasts forever. My fiance and I have been together for 6 years - 7 when we get married. But even though that phase doesn't last forever, I still have moments that remind me of that phase on a regular basis. I think of the honeymoon phase as seeing sunshine and rainbows and just being googoo eyed on your partner and being attached at the hip. I wouldn't have wanted that to last forever, but I can definitely appreciate still having moments like that with my partner. Smiley heart

    I think that the honeymoon phase should always, be in effect. You should have a date night once a week, continue dating each other, like before you got married. Dressing up when going to dinner, bringing home a rose for (him) just because, writing him love letters and thanking him for being there, when no one else cared. Those moments to me matters the most and go such a long way. So yeah, honeymoon phase shouldn't have to stop, just because you're married now!!! The real question is how to stay married now that you are.

    I still get giddy, whenever my fiance steps in the room and we have been best friends for 27 years, and I still see him the same when we first met. Been married for 18 yesrs . Reunited! Were doing it again....
