25 Best Vacation Spots for Couples

Planning a romantic getaway? Here are the best couples' vacation spots around the world to visit with your special someone.

One of the best parts of being in a relationship is having a built-in travel buddy — and enjoying uninterrupted one-on-one time as you visit new places together. A trip with your significant other, whether domestic or international, almost always guarantees you'll learn something new about one another — perhaps your girlfriend gets a rush from cliff diving, or your boyfriend can make friends with anyone despite only being able to say one phrase in the local language.

When you're deciding where you want to go, consider which components of a romantic getaway matter most to you. Are you up for sightseeing and doing outdoorsy activities together or do you lean more toward enjoying quiet moments in intimate settings with a view?

For instance, couples looking for a chance to fully unwind might opt for a beach vacation or spa weekend in a beautiful destination, while those searching for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure may want to book an African safari. Foodie couples might want to eat their way through Paris's fine restaurants, while more active travelers may prefer to hit the slopes or go snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef.

Whatever your travel style, here are 25 of the best vacation spots for couples.

Bali, Indonesia

If your version of romance is hiking through monkey forests and rolling rice paddies — or dancing to DJ sets and light shows until the wee hours of the morning — head to Bali, a beautiful Indonesian isle known for its vibrant nightlife scene. Stroll hand-in-hand on white-sanded shores in the southern part of the island or by the volcanic black sand beaches of its northern and eastern coasts. In addition to historic temples and shrines, Bali is also home to heaps of high-end resorts, yoga classes, spas, and Australian-influenced cafes worth checking out during your trip.

Santorini, Greece

Visiting Santorini is like traveling to a cloud-like oasis that envelops you in an ethereal fantasy. In other words, there's no surprise as to why it's a popular choice among newlyweds looking for a picture-perfect honeymoon destination . The romance of the island pretty much sells itself; wandering the hilly, weathered streets, you'll be surrounded by bright white walls and blue roofs, while in the evenings, you'll have front-row seats to incredible sunsets. Once the sun is down, the island really lights up, with its houses, churches, and restaurants glowing like stars.

Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Aside from traveling to Tanzania to hike Mount Kilimanjaro, many make the trip to see the country's incredible wildlife conservation sites and national parks. Going on a safari allows you and your significant other to share some unique firsts: the first time you see a lion, the first time you drive across the African plains, dotted with baobab trees, or the first time you meet someone from the local Indigenous community, to name a few.

You'll want to visit Ngorongoro Crater , the world's largest inactive and intact volcanic caldera. Its bowl-like shape makes a natural border for the animals, boosting the chances safari goers will be able to spot all of the Big Five — lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, and buffalo — during a tour. Serengeti National Park is another popular safari destination because of the area's mass seasonal migrations of wildebeest and zebra, its large lion population, and the sheer diversity of habitats and animals you'll find here.

Tulum, Mexico

Two core pillars of many romantic vacations are relaxing in intimate settings and enjoying exciting experiences, and Tulum has plenty of chances for you to do both. Rotate between lounging out on tropical beaches, snorkeling at nearby Xel-Ha Park , swimming in a natural sinkhole (or cenote), and touring ancient Mayan ruins, many of which are still intact. After a perfect day in Tulum , packed with leisure, adventure, or both, the cherry on top will be grabbing a drink at Gitano and relishing in its funky jungle atmosphere.

Whistler, Canada

A great way to bond as a couple is by getting active, and skiing on Whistler and Blackcomb mountains is great for both veteran and beginner skiers alike. Take on the mountains, offering numerous trails of varying intensity, enjoy an overhead view of the snow-capped trees from sprawling gondolas, break for lunch at the mid-mountain lodge, and top off your day with an après ski special at one of the slope-side bars. If one day of skiing leaves you with wobbly legs and your fill of downhill action, there's a lot more going on at the base of the peaks. Whistler Village is a lively, pedestrian-only hub of bars, shops, and restaurants. The little winter wonderland is as charming as the inside of a snow globe, and what's better for a romantic getaway than that?

Cappadocia, Turkey

For a fairytale vacation, there's nothing more fitting than a landscape dotted with "fairy chimneys," the tall, thin cones topping the many rock sites of Cappadocia. Cave churches, underground cities, and homes carved into the rocks work to create a whimsical aura usually reserved for the fictional realm. Floating high above the rocky terrain in a brightly-designed hot air balloon , you'll feel like characters wandering the pages of a Dr. Seuss book (or like astronauts discovering a civilization on the moon). Either way, the otherworldly experience will have you recapturing your sense of childlike wonder and awe together.

Paris, France

Most clichés became clichés for a reason, and so is the case with Paris' romantic reputation. Looking at pictures of couples in the City of Light, you can practically see the cartoon hearts in their eyes as they embrace in front of the Eiffel Tower. Paris and romance go together like Valentine's Day and chocolate, anniversary dinners and candlelit bistros, marriage proposals and world-famous landmarks… all of which Paris is not-so-coincidentally known for having.

Hakone, Japan

While not as romanticized for cherry-blossomed strolls as its neighbor, Kyoto, Hakone is a worthy day trip from Tokyo, offering an intimate escape from city travel in the most relaxing way possible: hot springs resorts . Aside from relaxing in onsen (hot springs) at a traditional ryokan (Japanese inn), you can take advantage of the natural sites, like Lake Ashi and the volcano Mount Fuji , or tour the fire-engine red Hakone Shrine and open-air sculpture museum . The many transportation options , ranging from boats and cable cars to rolling train routes through the mountains, also seem like mini adventures, making yours all the more memorable.

Northern Norway

If you've ever considered stargazing a romantic experience, northern Norway really ups the ante with its naturally occuring cosmic activity. The region covers about one-third of the country and is considered one of the best places to see the northern lights in Norway . They usually make an appearance from autumn to mid-April, while from late April to mid-August, the sun is still visible late at night thanks to a natural phenomenon known as the " midnight sun ."

Feeling adventurous? Venture even farther north to Svalbard, the northernmost inhabited region of Europe, to experience 24-hour daylight between April and August. On the opposite end of the light spectrum, Svalbard's January and February months have "polar nights," when night lasts for around 24 hours, making the aurora borealis particularly visible.

If you do decide to take this kind of trip together, be warned: Looking up at the stars in your own backyard might not be quite as impressive anymore.

Porto, Portugal

Paula Galindo Valle / Travel + Leisure

Porto is a waterfront merchant city that seemingly transports visitors to an earlier time with its cobblestoned streets, baroque churches, and prevalence of port factories and family-owned businesses. Nearby in the Duoro Valley , you can visit vineyards where wine has been produced for more than 2,000 years, sample it, and participate in harvesting practices such as stomping on the grapes. It's the perfect part of Portugal to spend a day or two , if not longer. In a city infused with the culture of wine making and drinking, you and your significant other can get tipsy on the energy alone.

Amalfi Coast, Italy

Known for its natural and architectural beauty, Italy's Amalfi Coast is a prime choice for a romantic Mediterranean getaway. Travelers can bask in the natural scenery, hike through dreamy seaside villages with picturesque views, and visit famous sites such as the Grotta dello Smeraldo (the " Emerald Grotto "), as well as medieval churches, gardens, and museums. When you need some quiet time for just the two of you, there are a number of secluded hotels offering oceanfront views and luxurious amenities.

Buenos Aires, Argentina

In Argentina's bustling capital, you and your significant other will never run out of activities to try, with lots of live entertainment and a multitude of restaurants and bars. For a day-to-night date, La Boca is a vibrant neighborhood known for Tango dancing and El Caminito, a pedestrian walkway lined with houses and shops painted in bright primary colors — strolling through this vibrant neighborhood is one of our favorite things to do in Buenos Aires .

Whitsunday Islands, Australia

Irjaliina Paavonpera/Travel + Leisure

At the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, these 74 islands off the coast of Queensland, Australia, will have you sailing into uncharted relationship territory with unbelievable sites to discover together. Whitehaven Beach is one of the most popular white-sand beaches in the country — despite it being a tourist hotspot, you've got 4.3 miles to play with, making it easy to stretch out and find your own space.

In addition to enjoying blissful beach days, you can embark on some truly unforgettable and romantic excursions while visiting the islands, such as flying over Heart Reef in a helicopter, staying aboard a boat for a few days, or snorkeling at the legendary Great Barrier Reef.

South Caicos, Turks and Caicos

While Turks and Caicos is certainly not a new destination for romantic vacations, most visitors flock to Providenciales, the first major stopping point on the tropical archipelago.

Far less popular (and far more secluded) are the pristine beaches of South Caicos , just a short, scenic connecting flight away. If you're looking for something truly special — perhaps to celebrate an anniversary or another special occasion — Sailrock Resort is a luxury property nestled within natural brush along white-sand shores that lead into crystal-clear water. You'll experience the type of picturesque serenity you thought was only accessible to movie stars, yet there the two of you will be, sipping colorful cocktails together on a hammock at the beach's edge, with nothing but the open, beautiful horizon spanning ahead of you.

No matter how active you decide to be, Barbados is one of the best vacation spots for couples. The island's west coast is home to several high-end resorts with various offerings to make your Caribbean escape extra memorable. Arrange some classic island excursions, such as snorkeling, private boat trips with companies such as Seaduced , or visits to local attractions like the spectacular Hunte's Gardens and Rihanna's childhood home.

For a dose of local cuisine and culture, spend an upbeat Friday night at Oistins fish fry or sample some of the island's best rums on a tour of the Mount Gay rum distillery . You could also kick back and make relaxation your number-one priority by simply enjoying the beautiful beaches and temperate water. For a dinner you won't soon forget, head to The Cliff , which overlooks the water in a sultry, fire-adorned setting.

Dalmatian Coast, Croatia

For the ultimate romantic vacation, charter a boat and sail along the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia. If you start your journey in Dubrovnik and end up in Split, you'll get a comprehensive look at the country, from nautical exploration to sightseeing in both small seaport towns and big cities. With a stopover in a new place every night, the transit is part of the fun, rather than merely a means to get from point A to point B.

Travelers mainly book Turkish gulets (or small yachts) with separate quarters for the crew. Companies like Gulet Yacht Adriatic Holiday offer packages that include the services of a captain, chef, and one or two crew members to help curate not just your route, but everything else you do while you're on the water or shore. While the busy season is typically from June through early September, trips also set out in October and make a great option if you want a bit more quiet and privacy on the Adriatic Sea.

Cotswolds, England

Step into a romantic period piece on a vacation in the Cotswolds , located in the picturesque English countryside. The rolling hills and fields are dotted with the most quaint towns you'll ever find — popular stops include Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water, and Castle Combe. Grab a pint in a storied pub or tea in a cute cafe after spending the day exploring town after adorable town.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

What could be more romantic than snuggling up by the fire after a day out in the snow? In Jackson Hole , you can enjoy winter sports in a stunning setting just a short distance from Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks . Plus, you can book a stay at a luxurious property like Amangani or the Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole for a truly romantic trip — or the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort if you're both skiing or snowboarding enthusiasts.

Charleston, South Carolina

Charleston is often a favorite city among Travel + Leisure readers , and once you visit, it's easy to see why. Dine at delicious restaurants, take a sunset cruise in the harbor (where you may even spot a dolphin or two), and visit one of the nearby beaches. For romantic accommodations, we recommend staying outside the city on Kiawah Island, a little under an hour's drive away, where you'll find The Sanctuary , a beachfront luxury hotel.

Tucson, Scottsdale, and Sedona, Arizona

Looking for a mindful way to connect with your partner? Consider booking a trip to a wellness resort with a spa and classes to deepen your relationship. Miraval Arizona , located in Tucson, has an all-inclusive experience that throws in fitness classes, health and wellness lectures, and spa treatments, among other amenities. The Civana Wellness Resort & Spa near Scottsdale offers a serene escape amid the Sonoran Desert, while Sedona, with its red rocks and mysterious vortexes, is another popular destination among wellness travelers.

Kauai, Hawaii

Find paradise together on a trip to Kauai , Hawaii's Garden Isle. You'll find the best of both worlds, with a beautiful mix of lush jungle landscapes and beautiful beaches. Spend your days alternating between lounging or strolling hand-and-hand along the shores and exploring its natural wonders by foot, boat, or helicopter. Popular romantic resort options include Timbers Kauai in Lihue and Koʻa Kea Hotel & Resort in Poipu Beach.

Napa Valley, California

A romantic jaunt to California's wine country might be the perfect getaway for couples looking for delicious vino, beautiful views, and world-class dining. Spend a few days touring vineyards together and tasting different varietals while gazing out at the rolling, vine-covered hills. You can also opt for a ride on the Napa Valley Wine Train for more scenic views. Retire to one of the many beautiful luxury resorts in the area, such as the Auberge du Soleil , Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley , or Solage, Auberge Resorts Collection .

Sea Island, Georgia

This Georgia barrier island resort offers secluded, five-star luxury across several styles of accommodations, including The Cloister, located in the heart of the resort, as well as private cottages. In addition to the beach, guests can golf, lounge by the pools, enjoy spa treatments, and participate in other activities like tennis and horseback riding.

New York City

For some couples, taking on a major metropolis is just as romantic as spending a week by the beach. And when it comes to big city destinations in the United States, it's hard to beat New York City . Every night is date night on vacation, so go to dinner and take in a Broadway show, enjoy extended evening hours at some of the world's best museums, visit acclaimed restaurants and cocktail bars, and stroll through Central Park to soak in the sights and sounds of the Big Apple.

Palm Springs, California

Escape to the desert with a trip to Palm Springs, surrounded by picturesque mountains and lined with palm trees. Plan your visit in the spring, fall, or winter to avoid the intense summer heat, and admire mid-century modern architecture as you hit the links or head to the spa. The Ritz-Carlton, Rancho Mirage is a luxe pick for a pool with a view, while the Parker Palm Springs is another trendy choice.

Preparing for Your Honeymoon: Essential Travel Tips for Newlywed Couples

A perfect honeymoon takes a lot of planning and some smart tips. Let’s go over some key advice to make your trip unforgettable . We’ll help you choose the best place, plan a budget that allows you to have fun without stress, and make sure all your travel details are taken care of.

Choosing the Right Destination for Your Milestone

Selecting the right destination is like choosing the backdrop for the first chapter of your life together. Honeymoon trip is not just about the beauty of the place, it’s about what it represents for you as a couple. Think about what you both love. Do you love the adventure of hiking in the woods, chilling with a spa beside the ocean, or the excitement of exploring busy city streets? The perfect place for your honeymoon is one that matches what you both dream about, making it a real part of your honeymoon dreams.

Setting a Realistic Budget for Couple Travel

You need to set a practical budget for the trip to enjoy without any stress. First, list the major expenses, such as plane tickets, hotel rooms, and activities. Remember to set aside money for eating out, buying keepsakes, and unexpected fun. Spending a little time on planning means you can treat yourselves to special things, like a romantic meal or a massage for two, without worrying about money. It’s all about balancing your dreams with your budget so you can relax and make the most of every second.

Researching Travel Requirements and Accommodation Options

Getting into the details of travel and accommodation helps to make sure your honeymoon goes smoothly. This means looking up if you need a visa for where you’re going, any travel warnings, and health guidelines. Also, when picking a place to stay, think about what fits your honeymoon style – whether it’s a fancy hotel, a comfy Airbnb, a unique boutique hotel, or a Galapagos Cruise. Choose spots that give you comfort, a good location, and something special. It’s about finding a place where you can relax after a day of exploring or just enjoy being together.

Booking Flights and Accommodation for an Unforgettable Honeymoon

Must secure your flights and place to stay early to avoid any stress. Look for deals and packages aimed at honeymooners, which might offer extras like better rooms or free experiences. When you book, think about when you’re traveling – choosing to fly in the middle of the week or outside the busy season can save you a lot of money. The aim is to make a honeymoon that feels just right for you, from the excitement of departure to the peace of your accommodation. It’s not just about the destination but the experience and the memories you’ll build together.

Packing Smartly for Your Getaway: Couples Travel Advice

When packing for your first trip as a married couple, it’s important to find the right mix of practicality and the joy of exploring together. Our tips will show you how to pack wisely, so you have all you need without making your bags too heavy. We’ll help you figure out which essentials you both can share and how to pick the best luggage.

Packing Essentials for Two: Tips for Traveling as a Couple

Always communicate and coordinate when packing for two for two people. Start by making a shared checklist of essentials to avoid duplicating items like chargers, toiletries, and travel adapters. Consider items that both of you can use, like a universal charger or a double-sized travel towel, to save space. It’s also a great idea to pack a small first-aid kit and copies of important documents in both of your bags. This approach not only lightens your load but also ensures you’re both prepared for any situation, making your travel experience smoother and more enjoyable.

Adapting to Different Climates: Packing Tips You May Also Like

If you are going to places with different weather, you must have some planning for that. You can wear different layers that can easily be added or removed, so you can adjust easily to the temperature. Begin with light, airy clothes and add thicker layers, like fleece or wool sweaters, when it gets cold. Don’t forget waterproof gear for rain and good walking shoes for all kinds of ground. Choosing clothes that go well together means you’ll have plenty of outfit choices without filling your suitcase too much.

Travel-Friendly Luggage and Accessories

Picking the best luggage and accessories can really improve your travel experience. Choose light and strong suitcases with wheels that can spin all around for easy moving. For day trips, think about a backpack or a duffel bag. Using organizers or packing cubes can help you keep your stuff neat and easy to find. Also, a small luggage scale can help you stay within weight limits and avoid extra fees for heavy bags. The right travel gear makes your trip easier and gives you extra space for souvenirs and memories from your honeymoon.

Staying Safe and Healthy Abroad: Key Tips for Traveling as a Couple

Newly married couples who are excited to make the most out of their trip overseas should take steps to stay healthy and safe while discovering new places. We’ll walk you through important tips like getting to know travel insurance and bringing a first-aid kit to help make sure your honeymoon is carefree and full of happiness.

Understanding Travel Insurance for Couples

Travel insurance is your safety net, protecting you from unforeseen events that can disrupt your plans. It covers everything from trip cancellations and lost luggage to medical emergencies and evacuation. Before you set off, take the time to understand the specifics of your policy: What does it cover? How do you make a claim? Are there any exclusions? Opting for a policy that includes health coverage is particularly wise, as it can save you from incurring significant expenses if you or your spouse need medical care abroad. Think of it as a small investment for peace of mind during your travels.

Packing a First-Aid Kit: A Must-Have for Every Destination

A well-stocked first-aid kit is a must-have for any trip, especially when you’re heading to a destination where medical supplies access might be limited. You should carry basics like band-aids, antiseptic wipes, pain relievers, and any prescription medications you or your partner take regularly. Also, consider items specific to your destination, such as insect repellent or altitude sickness medication. These essentials on hand mean you can quickly take care of minor health problems, stopping them from turning into big issues during your honeymoon.

Nutrition and Hydration: Eating Well and Staying Hydrated

Staying hydrated and eating healthy are crucial for making the most of your travels. Always have a refillable water bottle with you to keep hydrated all day . While exploring local foods is a must, remember to eat balanced meals. You must have a variety of fruits, vegetables, proteins, and carbohydrates to keep your energy high. Be careful with street food; make sure it’s made in a clean place to prevent any health problems that could spoil your fun.

Following Local Health Guidelines

Following local health rules is essential not just for your own well-being but also for being a considerate guest. This means keeping up with any needed vaccinations, wearing masks when required, and sticking to rules to stop spreading any diseases. Knowing about the health guidelines and advice in your destination can help you stay out of trouble with the law and make sure your honeymoon is trouble-free. Being well-prepared lets you have fun together, discovering new spots and making memories that will last a lifetime.

Maximizing Romance and Fun on Your Honeymoon Travel

Your honeymoon is an ideal time to add more romance and enjoyment to your newly shared life. It’s all about making unforgettable moments, whether through engaging in unique activities or building memories that will last forever.

Planning an Unforgettable Honeymoon with Special Activities

For an unforgettable honeymoon, consider adding activities that you’ve both always wanted to try. This could be a romantic dinner by candlelight on the beach, a relaxing couple’s massage, or something more adventurous like kayaking, hiking (or something more laidback like playing couples drinking games in the evening. These special moments can strengthen your bond and bring an added thrill to your journey. When you’re planning, think about what brings joy to both of you and include those things in your schedule. Tailoring your trip with experiences that reflect your shared interests will make your honeymoon uniquely yours.

Creating Memorable Experiences

Creating memorable experiences on your honeymoon goes beyond simply visiting new places; it’s about the moments you share and the memories you create together. This could mean tasting street food in a lively market, learning to cook a local dish together, or wandering hand in hand among ancient ruins. While it’s easy to focus on quickly taking photos of everything you see, there’s much more value in fully living each moment. This is where the idea to stop taking photos and start capturing memories becomes essential. Be present and ready for new experiences. These moments, whether big or small, turn into the stories you’ll share for years, adding depth to your relationship and strengthening your bond.

Balancing Alone Time and Socializing

A memorable honeymoon is one with the right balance between enjoying each other’s company and interacting with the world around you. While it’s important to cherish quiet moments together, embracing opportunities to meet new people or engage in local traditions can enrich your travel experience. Dedicate time for romantic walks or private dinners, but also consider joining a group tour or attending a local event. This blend of togetherness and exploration will enhance your understanding of each other and the places you visit.

Capturing Your Moments

In today’s digital age, capturing your honeymoon moments has never been easier. Yet, it’s the approach you take that makes all the difference. Prioritize living in the moment over getting the perfect shot, but when you do capture those special times, focus on the feelings behind them. Whether it’s selfies in front of landmarks, candid shots of laughter, or serene snapshots of scenic views, these photos and videos become priceless treasures. Remember, it’s about finding a balance between documenting your journey and fully experiencing it together.

Navigating Common Newlywed Travel Challenges

Traveling as newlyweds is an adventure filled with excitement and discovery. Still, it can also bring its own set of challenges. Knowing how to handle these situations can help keep your honeymoon smooth and enjoyable, from jet lag to dealing with delays. Let’s explore some common travel hurdles and how to tackle them together, strengthening your bond along the way.

Handling Travel Disagreements

Even the happiest couples can find themselves at odds when traveling. Different interests, energy levels, and preferences can lead to disagreements. So, the important thing is to handle these situations with communication and compromise. Discuss your must-dos and be willing to give a little on both sides. Remember, splitting activities occasionally is okay; one can enjoy a spa day while the other goes hiking. Find a balance that suits both of you. It will enhance your experience and remind you that it’s the journey and the company that matters, not just the destinations.

Dealing with Jet Lag and Fatigue

Jet lag and fatigue can test any traveler’s patience, especially during a honeymoon when you want to make the most of every moment. To minimize jet lag:

  • Try to adjust your sleep schedule a few days before your trip.
  • Stay hydrated, avoid alcohol and caffeine during flights, and try to get some sleep on long journeys.
  • Once you arrive, adapt to the local time as quickly as possible and allow yourselves short naps rather than long sleep-ins to adjust.
  • Remember, it’s important to listen to your body and not overbook your itinerary, allowing time to rest and recharge together.

Overcoming Language Barriers

Facing a language barrier can be daunting but also a fun part of the travel experience. You should learn a few key phrases in the local language that can go a long way in exploring new places. Carry a translation app or a small phrasebook to help with basic interactions. Remember, non-verbal communication, like gestures and smiles, can also help bridge gaps. Facing the challenge together, and you’ll find that overcoming these barriers as a team can lead to unexpected adventures and deeper connections with each other and the locals.

Coping with Unexpected Delays

Travel delays are pretty common for anyone on the move, but they don’t need to spoil your honeymoon. If delays happen, keep calm and look for other options. This could be a chance to discover the airport, taste some local dishes, or just relax and enjoy each other’s company. You need to be adaptable and ready with alternative plans; it can change these unexpected events into an exciting part of your journey instead of a problem. The important thing is how you view these situations. Tackling these challenges as a pair can actually strengthen your bond.

Returning Home and Reflecting

Returning from your honeymoon starts a new chapter in your life together, filled with memories and insights gained. This time is about more than just unpacking; it’s an opportunity to reflect on your amazing trip and how it will influence your life ahead as a couple. Let’s explore how to transition smoothly into life after the honeymoon, cherish those special moments again, and apply the lessons learned to strengthen your relationship.

Unpacking and Adjusting to Reality

Returning to the routine after the thrill of your honeymoon can seem tough. As you unpack, you’re not just putting away souvenirs and laundry; you’re also weaving your travel experiences into your regular life. It’s important to take the time you both need to settle back in. It’s common to experience a bit of sadness after returning from a trip, so be there for each other during this time. Gradually, try to blend the happiness and sense of freedom from your honeymoon into your everyday lives, ensuring the excitement continues.

Reliving Your Honeymoon

Reliving your honeymoon memories can keep the romance burning long after you’ve returned home. Put together a photo album or a digital slideshow, and dedicate a night to look through it together. Talking about your favorite times and the humorous or surprising moments can reignite the warmth and intimacy you experienced while away. Consider making this reminiscing a tradition, perhaps on your anniversary, to celebrate and relive your honeymoon each year. It’s a wonderful method to keep those memories fresh and remind yourself of the adventures.

Learning and Growing Together as a Couple

Trips are more than a vacation, especially honeymoons; they’re a special opportunity to learn about each other and how you handle life as a team. Looking back on how you managed the planning, enjoyed the high points, faced the difficulties, and even navigated the mistakes can provide important insights into how you work together. Talk about what you learned regarding each other’s likes, what causes stress, and how you solve problems. Use these discoveries to deepen your connection and enhance how you approach future challenges and adventures as a couple. Every experience, whether positive or negative, is a chance to learn and grow, making your relationship stronger.

Congratulations! You married the person you love and now you are starting your new life together as lifelong partners. You may be talking about the best place to live as a young couple. Are there some cities that are more affordable than others? Where can you meet other newlyweds in a similar stage of life? Are there some cities that offer more opportunities for fun and exploration?

To help you navigate your move, we turned to Miranda Harper, director of communications for Zumper . She explained which factors new couples should consider when deciding where to live and gave us a list of the top places in the United States for newlyweds.

Meet the Expert

Miranda Harper is the director of communications for Zumper , a website that does market research and helps people find homes, rooms, condos, and apartments to rent.

"Affordable cost of living, having a solid support network of other married friends, and the presence of a vibrant food culture all go hand in hand with a good quality of life," she says. "These factors can all contribute to maintaining a long, happy marriage."

Read on to find where you might want to start looking.

Laredo, Texas

Laredo is a city in Southern Texas that is right on the Mexican border. It might not be an obvious choice, but newlyweds love living here, reveals Harper. It's affordable; a one-bedroom costs around $744 a month, leaving you plenty of money for date nights, trips, and savings. 41 percent of the population is married, meaning there will be tons of other couples to meet. There is also a high capita of restaurants. "Keeping the romance alive will be effortless with so many date night options," adds Harper.

Tulsa, Oklahoma

Tulsa, the second-largest city in Oklahoma , has everything going for it, Harper says. "It has affordable rent, so the general cost of living would be great for a newlywed couple who are just starting their lives together." A one-bedroom costs, on average, $651 a month. In recent years, chefs and small business owners have flocked there, opening new restaurants and shops. There are also great museums and cultural institutions in Tulsa from the Philbrook Museum of Art to the Woody Guthrie Center.

Irving, Texas

Irving is a city just northwest of Dallas (it's so close to Dallas, some people even consider it a suburb.) It's the home of six Fortune 500 companies, which means there are many young professionals here. 50 percent of the population is married, which is a positive, adds Harper: "The city has a high population of married couples and low divorce rates so a pair of newlyweds can easily find other couple friends for dinner parties and other fun social gatherings." The city also has the famed Irving Arts Center, which is known for its outdoor concerts and installations. There are also ample parks.

Shreveport, Louisiana

Shreveport is full of fun opportunities for a young couple. There is a zoo, parks, and even a gigantic rose garden. It sits along the Red River, so there are plenty of romantic spots for walking or a picnic. The divorce rate is only 8.3 percent, well below the national average of 50 percent, which means couples are happy here. It's also very affordable, with couples spending on average $641 a month for a one-bedroom apartment.

Orlando, Florida

Everybody knows Orlando for its tourist attractions ( Disney World !) but few know that Orlando has a lot more going for it. It has a high concentration of restaurants, many of which are run by world-renowned chefs and mixologists. Couples can walk around downtown Disney or take a leisurely boat tour around lesser-known parts of the city. Plus, it's sunny and warm year-round.

The city's only downfall is it's more expensive than other cities in the south, but it's still relatively affordable, shares Harper. "While Orlando’s cost of living is a bit higher than Irving and Tulsa’s, rents in Orlando are still priced around the national median," she assures.

Tallahassee, Florida

Tallahassee is not just the state capital of Florida but a cultural center. There is the museum of Florida history with beautiful grounds and mansions you can visit that date back to the 1800s. The city also boasts beautiful landscapes and serene places to walk around and take in nature. On top of that, you get a low cost of living with the average price for a one-bedroom apartment hovering below $800. 35 percent of the population is married here, a higher percentage than in other cities in Florida including Miami and Orlando.

Miami, Florida

We all know Miami for its parties. There are clubs and bars where young people can mingle, dance, and drink long into the night. If you are a young couple who wants to party, this city is for you. But it also has a lot to offer for those looking for a quieter life. There are beaches, public art installations, incredible restaurants, and outdoor activities. It's no wonder the city only has an 11.8 percent divorce rate; it's hard not to be happy living here.

Austin, Texas

For a couple looking for fun, another great choice is Austin. You can hear live music every night of the week. There are tons of affordable bars and eateries. You can spend every weekend day floating down the river with a beer if you want to. While the city is more expensive than other places on the list—a one-bedroom will cost you around $1,200 a month—it is still way below other bustling cities like San Francisco and New York City . The city also has a low divorce rate hovering at about 10 percent.

Washington, D.C.

Washington D.C. can make a wonderful home for many different types of couples. With free Smithsonian museums and parks, creative food and beverage offerings, and cultural activities galore, there is something for everybody. Only 20 percent of the city is married, but there are many young professionals working and living here, so you both can have lots of friends. Also, it's cheaper than other desirable cities in the northeast including Boston and New York City.

Norfolk, Virginia

Norfolk is a city on the Chesapeake Bay in southeastern Virginia. For a waterfront city, it is relatively affordable, only costing around $1,000 a month for a one-bedroom. It also has a booming food and drink scene and one of the highest concentrations of restaurants in the country. 31 percent of the population is married, which puts it above similar cities in the northeast. There is also a lot to do with the riverside zoo and the Chrysler Museum of Art.

  • 3 Destinations

Honeymoons are holidays taken by a newly married couple soon after their wedding. They are a traditional, or at least common (if private) part of wedding celebrations in some cultures.

There is increasing marketing aimed at romantic honeymoon-like holidays: for example "babymoons", the last holiday before the birth of a couple's first child, engagement celebration, and anniversaries.

A honeymoon in Western countries typically begins a few days after the wedding ceremony: the couple spends a night or two after the ceremony in their home or in a hotel rather than adding long-distance travel to the end of their day. The trip itself is often a fortnight in length and can, of course, be longer if you like.

Don't think of flying in your marriage dress, unless you can buy first-class tickets (or you have many friends to help you both at the departure airport and at the destination). Reasons are multiple: moving your luggage, waiting in a line to check in and spending several hours squeezed into economy-class cabin are simply impractical in wedding dress. Add carry-on luggage tag to the bride's bouquet to get the full picture.

Popular choices of honeymoons include:

  • Beaches and islands

When honeymoons began to be popular a century or two ago, they were a tour by the newly married couple of relatives who didn't live near by, often relatives who hadn't been able to come to the ceremony.

This is far less common now, but is one possible model for your honeymoon if you do have close family or friends who were unable to come; especially for international or migrant couples.

There are many dedicated honeymoon packages offered by travel agents , based on a cruise ship , a resort, or a high-end hotels. Typically these include "romantic" extras like massages, spa baths, fine dining , bottles of champagne and better (and more private) rooms. They are usually aimed at a luxury market: if you want a budget honeymoon it's easier to plan it as a holiday for two immediately after your wedding, rather than asking for honeymoon specials.

One advantage though of the honeymoon market is that it caters to the typical needs of couples interested in a romantic holiday. A destination that specialises in honeymoons or couples is less likely to be full of families with young children, or party-happy backpackers, which appeals to many couples wanting a more private, peaceful holiday.

If you're after the usual goals of a honeymoon (lots of time alone together), you'll want to have an unhurried itinerary. Consider just one or two destinations.

People who change their name when they marry, should consistently use the name in their passport or ID card, when they book tickets, especially when flying . The validity of visas and even the ability to board a flight will be compromised by a different name on a ticket to what is in your passport.

A honeymoon may require careful budgeting: the balance of the trip will usually be due around the same time as the balance of the cost of the wedding itself! It's best to include a honeymoon budget in your wedding budget.

Your honeymoon can cost any amount that you choose to spend on it, of course. (You can even skip it, a travel site won't talk much about that!) Travel agents are encouraged to suggest options that cost about half of your wedding budget, but that's just their guide to the rough amount they can get you to part with, not an iron clad rule.

Some travel agents offer honeymoon registries in which the guests can contribute to the cost of the honeymoon as a wedding gift; you could also arrange this informally by asking for cash gifts from guests who want to contribute to the honeymoon. The acceptability of asking for what is always essentially a cash gift varies between cultures, families and couples.

Got a just-married duo on your shopping list? Whether you're looking for a holiday gift, a housewarming present or a first anniversary gift for the newly married couple, we're here to help. Choosing gifts for newlyweds can be tricky for a few different reasons, not least because they likely just got everything they need from their wedding registry . You've also got the task of impressing not one but two of your favorite people, which can seem a little daunting at first. Lucky for you, we love a challenge (especially when it comes to buying presents) and coming up with creative picks that are a little outside the box is our specialty. Below, you'll find gifts for newlyweds that they'll both appreciate, including ideas for Hanukkah, Christmas and beyond.

In this article:

What to Get the Newlyweds Who Have Everything

The best gifts for newly married couples.

Before you dive into shopping, we have a few helpful tips to inspire your search. Although their wedding registry might not seem like the most obvious place to look for a housewarming or holiday gift, it's actually a super-useful resource. If you have access to their wish list, check to see if any of their asks went unpurchased. Even if everything on the registry was snapped up, it'll shed some light on the couple's style and interests (and you can use it to suss out what they already have).

Another option is to choose a gift for the newlyweds that's really unique. "When shopping for newlyweds or the couple that has everything, my go-to wedding gift is always something personalized," says Dayna Isom Johnson , Etsy's resident trend expert. "It offers the couple a thoughtful and unforgettable gift that stands out from the typical registry item or something they simply don't need," she explains. Some of Johnson's favorite newlywed gifts on Etsy include custom portraits, engraved cutting boards and personalized doormats—and we've included a few options below.

Of course, something that feels personal doesn't necessarily have to be personalized. For example, a present inspired by how the couple met or something they enjoy doing together is equally as thoughtful. Remember, they're fresh into marriage and likely still glowing about their new status as spouses. Make the most of this special time in their lives with a gift that really honors their union.

Ready to get started? We've listed the top gift ideas for newly married couples below. From personalized homeware and subscriptions for couples to all the cool gadgets that weren't on their registry, you're sure to find the perfect present for anyone who recently said "I do."

1. A Journal for Tracking Milestones

Afterward, there's space to jot down notes and add a photo, transforming the book into a diary of their adventures.

They can even use it to toast s'mores, which is bound to come in handy during the festive season and beyond.

11. A Nostalgic Candle

Just Married candle for your favorite couples gift

It's okay to keep things simple, especially if you don't know the newly married couple all that well. This beautiful candle is a pretty safe bet, thanks to a light and subtle fragrance with dreamy notes of champagne, fresh linen, neroli blossom and creamy musk. It even comes with the words "Just Married" on the label for a sweet and thoughtful finish. Every time they light it, they'll be able to unwind while reminiscing on their special day.

12. A Monthly Coffee Subscription

Coffee bean subscription for your favorite couple

Settling into married life can be a busy time, so why not give them one less thing to worry about with a monthly coffee subscription? Every month, they'll receive 12 ounces of whole-bean or roasted ground coffee from around the world, complete with tasting notes and brewing tips. It's one of the best gift ideas for newly married couples who can't start their day without a freshly brewed cup (or two).

13. Cute Mugs for Cozy Nights

Personalized coffee mugs for the best couples gift

15. A Matching Underwear Subscription

There's something surprisingly romantic about twinning with your other half, especially when it's an item no one else can see.

Just be aware that you do need to know a few, er, intimate details (think: their preferred cut and size) before you get started. It's a funny gift for the newlyweds who have a sense of humor (or just love to coordinate!).

16. A Versatile Pot for Cooking

Versatile cooking pot for the best couples gift

You really can't go wrong with essentials like cookware, especially if you've got housewarming or Christmas gift ideas for newlyweds on your radar.

This cute doormat is personalized with their family name above a heart motif, all of which is surrounded by a sweet message that reads: "Love makes the world go round."

24. A Custom Star Map

When it comes to newlywed gift ideas, personalized presents are always well received. Imagine the couple's delight when they unwrap a beautiful piece of art showcasing the night sky from when they first met or tied the knot . All you have to do is provide the date, location coordinates and the couple's names for a super thoughtful keepsake they'll treasure forever. Consider the question of "what to get the newlyweds?" answered.

Photo gifts are always a lovely gesture, whether you're shopping for a belated wedding gift for the newlyweds, holiday gift ideas or a thoughtful housewarming present. This printed calendar poster features a snapshot of the lovebirds (like a picture from their big day) above their names and the 12 months of the year in a grid format.

Personalized Glass Candle Holder for Hanukkah

Now that they're spending the holidays as spouses, they're probably looking for festive decor to help them celebrate together as a family.

It can be customized with their shared last name for a thoughtful gift that'll impress friends and family who come over to visit during winter. Just note: The candle is not included, so you may want to add one before handing it over to the newlyweds.

30. A Sparkly Photo Frame

Sparkly photo frame for the best couples gift

While a photo frame may not seem like the most original gift for newlyweds, we're prepared to say otherwise. In an increasingly digital age, pictures often end up stored on a smartphone or laptop for ages before the couple can get a chance to print them off. Surprise them with a snapshot from their recent wedding displayed in this beautiful sparkly frame to earn yourself some serious brownie points.

31. A Festive Spoon Rest

Holiday spoon rest for your favorite chef

Looking for a good gift for the newlyweds that won't break the bank? This festive spoon rest looks seriously chic and way more expensive than its budget-friendly price tag. Made from stoneware, it's decorated with a bold mosaic pattern of a holiday wreath surrounded by small geometric motifs. Whether they use it while cooking dinner or as part of their table decor, it's a sweet and simple gift they'll look forward to breaking out each holiday season.

32. Their Own Christmas Stockings

Personalized Christmas stockings

Help them get their first holiday as a married couple off to a good start with these personalized Christmas stockings. The chunky cable knit and laser-engraved leather patches are charming and rustic, which is perfect for the festive season. Hide a surprise inside (like their favorite candy or a small token of appreciation) for a heartwarming gift they can display at home.

33. A Cool Set of Camping Supplies

Camping supplies from Nomadik

Here's an epic gift for the newlyweds who love spending time outdoors. Nomadik's Grill & Chill set includes a compact stove, a waterproof Bluetooth speaker, a candle mug, a beer blanket and a flashlight—basically everything they need for their next camping trip. Plus, it even comes with a roasting fork and a recipe book, so they can learn how to toast marshmallows (and more) over the campfire. Cool, huh?

34. A Personalized Whiskey Dispenser

Customized whiskey dispenser

Now here's a really cool gift for any newly married couple who likes entertaining. This wooden and metal whiskey dispenser can be customized with their family name and monogram, along with the date they got married for a unique piece of barware. Whether they use it to serve guests at a party or to pour a nightcap for themselves, it'll make any occasion feel a little more special.

35. A Monthly Flower Subscription

Flowers for your favorite couple

What better way to extend that feeling of newlywed bliss than a monthly subscription of flowers? With BloomsyBox, you can sign them up for deliveries of fresh blooms to add an air of romance to their home. Simply choose the duration of the subscription (from one month up to a year) for a thoughtful gift that'll get their married life off to a great start. Use KNOT10 to get 10% off your order.

Respect is essential in every relationship, romantic, friendly, and professional. It is especially critical in a marriage. It would be best to show that you value each other’s opinions and hold your relationship in high regard.

Talk to your partner before making plans with friends or making big decisions, not because you’re asking permission, but because you have respect for their input. You are consulting your teammate before making a decision that affects them.

If you always respect each other, your marriage will thrive.

To have a happy marriage, you must encourage each other often. Encouragement makes your spouse feel good about themselves; always give compliments and lift them up. This is one of the best pieces of marriage advice.

Encourage your spouse always to strive to be the best version of themselves. In return, your spouse should encourage you to be the best version of yourself. You want to encourage each other with everything they set out to do, even small things. Just a tiny bit of encouragement can go a long way.

Encouraging each other is the foundation for every happy marriage and some great marital advice for newlyweds.

Many married couples misunderstand that there’s no need to worry about your appearance once you are married. After all, you have already attracted your ideal partner, so why should you keep trying? This misunderstanding has caused many problems in marriages.

The fact is you don’t want ever to stop trying. If you ate healthily, exercised, and had a perfect skincare routine before marriage, it’s essential to keep up those habits even after you are married.

This is because you need to take care of yourself and treat yourself well. How can you expect to take care of your spouse the way they deserve if you can’t take care of yourself? One of the most important marriage tips for newlyweds.

4. Pay attention to each other’s needs.

Paying attention to your partner’s needs is one of the essential pieces of advice for newlyweds; always pay attention to each other’s needs.

Couples get so caught up worrying about what the other person is not doing right we forget that we are not perfect either, which can lead to arguments over who didn’t do what.

The more energy you put into worrying about how the other person isn’t meeting your needs, the less energy you can put into meeting their needs. It takes a balance of you and your spouse committing to focus more on each other’s needs than your own.

5. Support each other.

Always support your spouse, and they should support you. Whether it’s a new job that requires a move or just a new hobby they want to try that you think is a little off, you need to support them.

Supporting your spouse shows you are there for them and lets them know you consider yourself a team. Being a team is especially important in a marriage.

Also, when you show your spouse support, they will support you when you need it.

6. Be willing to communicate.

Communication is vital in every relationship, but it’s more important in a marriage.

Marriages, especially new ones, are fragile. Because they are fragile, simply lack of communication can cause mounds of issues in your marriage.

Lack of communication could be how clear you are when you want a task done within a specific time frame or not letting them know when something hurts your feelings.

These little things can add up, and eventually, you will blow up on each other. That is the last thing you want to happen.

Always communicate with each other.

7. Don’t try to control each other.

You and your spouse are a team composed of two individuals coming together to form a unit or a team. They are not your property, and they are not your child.

Married couples often make this mistake and have to deal with the consequences.

Let your spouse go out with friends or do their hobby on a Saturday, and you can take that time for yourself. It is crucial in marriage to still have your hobbies and spend time with your friends, and both of you should respect that.

If you start trying to control each other and make each other do what you want all the time, you will both end up feeling emotionally drained.

8. Take up for each other.

Your spouse needs to be your highest priority, even over your family. You shouldn’t let family or friends talk negatively about your spouse, ever!

You need to protect your spouse and tell those that talk negatively about them that you will not tolerate it. Even if you disagree with your spouse, you need to clarify that you have his back. It would help if you always took each other’s side because you are a team.

It’s ok to disagree with your spouse when alone, but always let friends and family know that you are a strong couple and will always stand up for each other.

9. Respect your marriage.

It can be tempting to give into harmless flirting and entertaining someone you know is into you, but don’t give into it. Marriages take work and consistency, and it also needs to be protected.

It requires both partners to put their marriage on a pedestal and not leave the door open to let someone else sabotage it accidentally. Flirting is never harmless when you are married.

Respect your marriage by setting boundaries with friends and co-workers that could cause problems within your marriage. Most affairs happen without the intention of having one; they were just the result of getting too close to someone else.

10. Show affection often.

Showing affection shouldn’t stop after the honeymoon. You should continue to try to show each other love for the rest of your lives together.

Make sure you continue to kiss each other and show each other how you feel through affection. Even embracing with a warm hug is a way to show each other how important you are to each other.

Another way you can show affection is by surprising them with their favorite drink or candy. Remembering to pick up their favorites shows affection by demonstrating you want to make them happy.

Other ways to show affection are writing cute notes for them to find on the fridge or leaving something special in their lunch box.

11. Make time for each other.

Making time for each other is another critical piece of advice for newlyweds. It can become more and more complex the longer you are together and the busier your lives get to make time for each other.

You can call each other during the day to say hi or take the time to send a thoughtful text when you have a minute. Plan things to do together, even if it’s just an indoor movie night; this demonstrates that you prioritize each other.

Making each other a priority will keep both of you feeling happy and fulfilled, and this is a good foundation for your marriage.

12. Appreciate each other.

Always show appreciation for your spouse, and they should show appreciation for you. Showing appreciation for each other lets each other know that you notice what you do for one another. It also lets your spouse know you are not taking them for granted.

You can show each other your appreciation by cooking an extra special meal you know they like or going out of your way to do a chore that is usually their responsibility.

You can also show your appreciation by verbally expressing your feelings; just make sure your actions back it up.

Remember always to show genuine appreciation and never be fake with your spouse.

13. Communicate without arguing.

So many marriages end because they never learned how to communicate effectively with each other. Effective communication allows room for growth within your marriage. It will enable you to understand what your spouse needs from you and what you need from your spouse.

It sounds simple, but it can prove challenging. Effective communication requires both of you to put your ego aside and focus entirely on the matter at hand. You can’t get upset with your spouse when they respectfully ask something of you. You need to be willing to listen and come to a compromise if you disagree.

Communicating without arguing will ensure a long and peaceful life together. Some of the best words of wisdom for newlyweds.

14. Continue to pursue each other.

Many married couples seem to stop pursuing their spouse after they get married, which leads to confusion.

It would help if you didn’t stop seeking their attention and trying to make them fall for you. Yes, your spouse already fell for you, but this doesn’t mean you stop doing what you did before you were married.

If you change your behavior after you are married and stop showing your spouse how much you want to be with them, they may assume you lost interest in them now that you are married.

15. Go on dates.

Always make time for dates ! Dates are ways to continue to pursue your spouse and keep the relationship alive.

Dates give you quality time together and give you a chance to talk about things going on in your lives that you may be too busy to talk about usually. This communication and pursuit of one another are healthy for your marriage.

Going on dates also opens up the opportunity to try new things together, strengthening the bond you have with each other. Seriously good advice for newlyweds.

16. Have realistic expectations.

People tend to jump into a marriage with unrealistic expectations of marriage. It would be best if you didn’t create unachievable ideas about what you expect out of your spouse. Your spouse is their person, just like you are.

A marriage is never perfect, and you shouldn’t treat it as such. Marriages take a lot of work from both partners to build your foundation and grow together to form an unbreakable bond.

If you want your marriage to succeed, try not to have any expectations, and if you do, let them be realistic.

17. Find a hobby together.

There are so many hobbies you can pick up to enjoy together. Finding a hobby together is vital in bonding with your spouse and building on your friendship.

It could be going to the gym or an art class. If you are outdoorsy, you could start hiking together or traveling to places with beautiful scenery to explore.

Doing things like this together gives you opportunities to express yourselves as a partnership.

It also enables you to have fun together, and fun is essential in a happy, long-lasting marriage.

18. Have your hobbies.

While it’s important to find hobbies to enjoy together, it’s equally essential finding hobbies to enjoy yourself.

Staying true to who you are and being yourself will allow you to appreciate your alone time with each other that much more.

If you do everything together and don’t take the time to do things separately, both of you risk feeling suffocated; this is the last thing you want. You also don’t want to morph together and lose your identities in each other because this is very unhealthy. Having your hobbies is one of the best pieces of marriage advice for newlyweds.

19. Focus on making each other happy

If both of you focus on making each other happy over yourselves, you will reap the benefits of a strong, fulfilled, selfless marriage.

Couples make the mistake of only focusing on their happiness while neglecting their spouse’s happiness. When both spouses do this, you end up with a marriage filled with unhappiness and resentment because you can’t get your mind past how the other person isn’t fulfilling you.

Focus on fulfilling your spouse’s needs and making them happy above your own needs and happiness.

20. Try new things together.

Trying new things together is something couples forget to do, but it’s important.

Trying new things with your spouse creates memories and allows you to bond over new experiences. It’s necessary for the health of your relationship.

On top of that, new experiences open us up emotionally and allow us to feel things on a deeper level.

Make sure you can spend your five-year anniversary talking about the new things you tried and how you can’t wait to try more.

21. Don’t stop being friends.

Never stop being friends with your spouse. Your spouse should always be your best friend.

They need to be the person you confide in when you are going through a personal issue and the person you celebrate with when you achieve things in life. Tell them secrets your friends share with you and open up about your past.

Being best friends means you will always maintain a foundation of love, trust, and respect. If your marriage starts to crumble, you can rely on that foundation to build back on if you have this foundation.

22. Don’t put each other down.

When you put your spouse down, you discourage them instead of encouraging them. In a marriage, it’s essential to lift your spouse up and always let them know what a fantastic person you think they are.

Constant belittling can be fatal to your marriage and your relationship. Making your spouse feel as if they are not enough will cause insecurities and diminish trust, which is toxic.

Make your concern concentrating on the beautiful things they do and remember why you are married to them. Nobody is perfect, and it is essential to remember.

23. Don’t talk negatively about each other.

Just like you shouldn’t belittle your spouse and make them feel small, remember not to talk badly about them to other people, including your friends and family.

Whether they know you are or not, talking negatively about your spouse means you are still focusing on the wrong traits instead of the good. It also means you aren’t respecting your marriage and holding high regard for it.

WHY HE HASNT PROPOSED YET

24. Seek advice from happily married couples.

When your marriage isn’t going well, don’t turn your single or divorced friends for advice. These people are not in your situation and could give you the wrong direction.

There may be a reason they are divorced or single, and you can’t trust that they will steer you in the right direction. They may advise you based on how they feel and their current situation, which could prove a considerable disadvantage to you.

You can still hang out with your divorced/single friends; just think twice before seeking council.

25. Trust each other.

Whatever you do, always trust each other. Trust is an essential part of a marriage, and without it, your marriage is likely not to be what you thought it would be.

Jealousy can make it hard to trust your partner. Whether it’s an attractive new co-worker or that hottie that just liked their profile picture, you need to keep in mind that they are with you. It can be easy to let your imagination run wild and begin accusing them of unfaithfulness, but this means you don’t trust them, and it could cause a loss of respect and resentment.

This is one of the most significant pieces of marriage advice to remember.

26. Compromise with each other.

Everybody wants to do things the way they want to, but it isn’t just about your wants and needs anymore when you get married.

Being willing to compromise lets your spouse know that even if you wanted things done your way, you could implement their ideas, making them feel appreciated.

If you and your spouse can’t agree on a compromise right away, try taking a step back to reevaluate both of your thoughts and reassess it at another time.

27. Be a team.

Being a team means if one of you is falling, the other will help them up.

Marriage brings about a lot of new responsibilities, and it can be challenging for both of you always to fulfill your part. When this happens, you need to be understanding with your spouse and help them out where they are struggling. This shows that you care not just about your spouse but also about the well-being of your family unit.

Recognizing when your spouse needs help instead of knocking them when they struggle will keep your marriage healthy.

28. Always kiss each other goodnight.

It’s ok to accidentally forget to kiss each other goodnight on occasion, but you should not make a habit of it.

Along with kissing each other goodnight, make sure to never go to bed angry. You should resolve your conflict the best you can for the night and agree to think it would over and pick it up the next day.

After you agree, tell your spouse you love them and kiss them goodnight. You never know what tomorrow holds.

29. Don’t keep secrets.

Do not keep secrets, even little ones. Secrets are a form of betrayal, and you always want to prove you are trustworthy to your spouse.

It may seem harmless not to mention that your ex sent you a message, but if your spouse finds out and knows you didn’t tell them, it could lead them to wonder what else you are keeping from them.

I’m not talking about when you buy your spouse a gift, and you don’t want them to know what it is. Keeping gifts a secret is ok.

30. Set goals together – some of the best marriage advice for newlyweds

Finally, on the list of marriage advice for newlyweds is setting goals together and dreaming big! The sky is the limit.

Sit down with your partner and discuss things you would like to achieve together and why. Write down whatever you two think of and make them your “together goals.”

When you set couple goals together, you ensure you are constantly growing together. Marriages that fail to set goals together sometimes only focus on their own goals individually, making it easier to grow apart.

20 Pieces of Advice for Newlyweds, According to the Experts

newly married travel

Welcome to the beginning of your forever! 

Being newlyweds is an exciting journey, filled with love, growth, and learning. As you embark on this journey together, it’s natural to seek marriage advice from your support network, as you try to nurture your relationship and ensure a lasting, happy future.

With the help of our In-House Expert Moraya Seeger DeGeare, we delve into essential advice for newlyweds, offering practical tips and wisdom to help you build a strong foundation for your marriage.

Whether you’re looking for ways to strengthen your bond, navigate life's challenges, or simply celebrate the joy of being together, our expert insights are sure to help you along the way! 

Why is marriage advice important? 

When you’re in love with someone, it’s often easy to believe that you have the perfect relationship and that you don’t need any advice or outside interference. Even though the safety of your love bubble is sweet, everyone can benefit from a helping hand along the way — especially when it comes to a lifelong commitment! 

“Listening to the advice that fits your situation can help you navigate many challenging and disconnecting moments with your partner,” says  Moraya Seeger DeGeare , a licensed marriage and family therapist and In-House Expert at Paired.

“In tough times, you can lean on the wisdom of those who can support you in navigating the ups and downs of relationships. Perhaps they remind you to slow down, listen, and try other ways of responding that might bring you and your partner closer together.” 

When you’re going through hard times, sometimes all you need is some outside support and perspective to guide you along the way. Whoever you reach out to, whether it’s your best friend or a trusted in-law, might try and pass on some advice that helped them when they were going through a similar situation. (Or they might just let you have the rant you need to get it out of your system!) 

What is good advice for a newly married couple? 

The best marriage advice or marriage tips usually come from those who have been around the block per se — whether having a happy marriage themselves or who are passing down relationship advice that they’ve been given over the years!

If you’re seeking marriage advice, it’s often the small things that stay with you and help you keep the spark alive for the rest of your life (no pressure!) 

Therefore, when you’re embarking on the first year of marriage, gathering advice from your loved ones can be helpful! This can help prepare you for the next chapter in your journey, and can even help  set realistic expectations to create a healthy marriage. 

While everyone will say there is one piece of great marriage advice that made such a difference to their married life, this is completely personal to each couple. With this in mind, we wanted to gather as much advice for a strong marriage as possible to get you started!

20 pieces of advice for newlyweds, according to the experts

When you’re setting out to create a successful marriage, it’s important to set aside time to focus on your future together. With this in mind, a little bit of relationship advice is a great place to start!

So, we let Moraya Seeger DeGeare take the reigns, and compile the best pieces of marriage advice to maintain a healthy relationship with your partner. From the little things to the essentials, these words of wisdom will get you by! 

Talk about your bigger long-term goals and embrace that while the reality might look different — knowing you’re on the same page is key. 

Get clear on your hard boundaries in your marriage. What are your non-negotiables? Is there anything you’re not willing to compromise on? 

Be okay with change, but also know you need to understand that your partner might not appreciate every change. This is normal, and be respectful of their adjustment process. 

Talk about addiction and addiction history early. 

Talk about attachment trauma and times you felt deeply lonely and how you handled it. This can open up the conversation around attachment styles, lending learnings to the relationship from the outset. 

Have a plan for how you want to navigate misunderstandings, they will happen, and expecting your partner to know how to respond might not be the best to cover in the moment.

Dedicate time for yourself each week. This preference for self-care might seem separate from the relationship, but will benefit every aspect of your life. 

Therapy and couples therapy are not just for when you are in crisis, you can go just to sort things out or for healthy self-care! Doing a few sessions when things are not in crisis can make it less scary when you do want more support. 

Talk to people you trust, and don’t let the shame of going through something mean you can’t have support. Every relationship goes through rough patches, but feeling that you have a support system around you can make things a lot easier to deal with.

Be open to the idea that you both will change and stay curious about who you become together. We often say you will grow together, but what can get missed is that you need to grow period. So even if you grow apart you need to embrace that you will change over time. Change although terrifying is fantastic for relationships. 

It’s okay not to be great at marriage just because you feel ready to be married. No shame in honoring you will have to learn how to communicate, how to support each other deeply, and how to build a life together. 

Do you want to win or do you want to be in a relationship? Some days you simply can not have both happen, when you are focused on winning you often lose track of how to reconnect with your partner. 

Don’t stop dating. This is one of the most important things to remember, as it’s not just about date nights, but the consistent want and need to learn more about each other. 

Surprise yourself with how thoughtful you can be. Tap into your partner’s love language by remembering the small stuff, it will make a huge difference to your day-to-day life. 

You are still a whole person, you and your partner can have the best relationship and not do everything together. So if they don’t want to go to something, within reason, go anyway. 

Know your triggers and be open about talking about them. It isn’t fair to assume that your partner automatically knows these things! Even if it means opening up about previous relationships, this information can help your partner tailor the relationship to your needs more easily. 

Chat about your parenting styles, whether you’re parenting now or if you plan to have kids in the future. Ask yourself “What was I restricted or limited in doing as a kid?”, as this can help you talk about what might come up for you when parenting together. 

Say “I love you” often. Even if after a tiff or a silly little argument, it’s a pleasant and grounding reminder no matter the circumstances. 

Openly chat about your savings plans, and be open to budgeting as a team. When you’re newly married, no one wants to talk about money (especially if you’re just past the wedding budgeting!) but it’s important to be on the same page about your future financial goals from the outset. 

Take steps to solidify a healthy sex life! In the throes of newlywed life, you’re probably pretty content with your sex life. To maintain this healthy sexual spark for the future, be open to channeling that kinky energy whenever you can!

Marriage Tips For Newlyweds

Being a newlywed is so exciting. You’re still on a high from the wedding and the honeymoon, and your life together stretches before you with the promise of glorious adventure.

In fact, you might well be wondering why you need marriage advice for newlyweds! After all, you’re madly in love and newly married. Could things be any rosier?  

Don’t let your new rose-tinted view of marriage get the better of your judgment.

While fresh into the marriage, everything looks exciting and exhilarating, don’t let the feeling overwhelm you too much. First-year of being newlyweds encompasses a lot of hard work and effort.

The time just after you get married is prime time to start laying the foundations for the rest of your marriage. The actions you take and the decisions you make now will influence how your marriage progresses.

By paying attention to some practical matters and building good habits together, you’re helping ensure a long and happy married life.

Make the most of the newlywed life with our vital marriage advice for newlyweds.

1. Enter married life with realistic expectations

Newlyweds often enter a marriage thinking (or at least hoping) that the entire duration will be full of excitement, tons of love, and honest, open conversation.

A large portion of it will be maintaining all those things, and that requires effort from both partners. Entering with realistic expectations and realizing that consistent effort is part of the deal will make your marriage so much better.

Pro-tip: Here’s expert advice for the bride and groom on managing expectations in marriage that can help them foster a healthy relationship.

2. Get to know each other

The chances are that if you just got married, you already know each other rather well. There’s always more to learn, though.

The newlywed period is an excellent time for long walks or lazy Sunday afternoons relaxing together and talking about anything and everything.

Get to know each other even better so you understand what the other needs, what they dream of, and where you fit into that.

Pro-tip: Do you think you and your partner know each other well?

Take this fun quiz and find out now!

3. Accept your partner the way they are

Would you like to be changed by your partner to suit their convenience?

If the answer is a big NO, you must try to accept your partner the way they are.

The best marriage advice for newlyweds is that from the start, you also must come to terms with the fact that you will never change your spouse. 

Pro-tip: Are you wondering how it helps to see things from your partner’s perspective? 

Read this expert advice for newlyweds. It will make you realize how accepting your partner and understanding their viewpoint can help boost love in your marriage.

4. Sort out your budget

Money causes problems in many marriages . It’s a contentious topic and one that can quickly descend into fighting.

The newlywed period is the ideal time to sort out your budget. Agree on it and set it now, and you’ll be off to a great start with money before issues have the chance to creep in.

You might have quite different money styles, so it’s important to find a compromise you’re both happy with. This word of advice for newlyweds is often ignored but is extremely critical.

Pro-tip: For achieving the financial goals, have a look at this checklist for newly married couples .

5. Divide up the chores

Chores are just part of life. Decide now who will be responsible for what, to save disagreements later .

Of course, you’ll want to be flexible from time to time as life happens, or one of you gets sick or worn out from work, but in general, it helps to know who is doing each daily or weekly chore.

A critical piece of advice for newlyweds-if you find you can each take over something the other hates, that’s even better. 

Pro-tip: Learn how to effectively handle the most common housework arguments by checking out these vital marriage tips for newlyweds .

6. Plan for emergencies

There are tons of good advice for newlyweds out there, but this one among the rest is most important to adhere to.

Emergencies can happen at any stage of marriage. Planning for them isn’t being a doom monger – it’s simply being sensible and making sure you don’t get taken by surprise.

Make a realistic list of what could arise, such as unemployment, illness, even a leaking appliance or lost bank card, and devise a plan for how you’ll deal with each eventuality.  

Pro-tip: If you are not sure about how to start planning for financial emergencies, skim through these crucial pieces of advice for newlyweds.

7. Don’t sweat the small stuff

One great piece of marriage advice for newlyweds is not to sweat the small stuff. 

If your wife has a growing pile of coffee cups next to her desk or your husband leaves his sweaty gym bag in the hallway each morning, and it’s making you crazy, ask yourself this: Will it matter tomorrow?

The answer is probably “No,” so why fight about something that, while annoying at the moment, doesn’t make a whole lot of difference in either of your lives?

Pro-tip: Do you feel that you are the perfect partner who doesn’t fight too much? 

Well, take this fun quiz and know the truth!

8. Communicate regularly

One of the biggest pieces of marriage advice for newlyweds is to communicate, communicate, communicate. Happy relationships are built on good communication . 

Loving partners tell each other when something is bothering them; they don’t resentfully wait for their partner to try and figure out that something is wrong. 

Communication is also a great way to talk and get to know one another on a deeper level by talking about your feelings, fears, likes, dislikes, and anything else that may come to mind.

Pro-tip: Click here to get expert tips on communicating and connecting with your partner for a happy and healthy relationship.

9. Always fight fair

Learning to fight fair is a part of marriage and maturity. Do not use an argument as an excuse to be disrespectful or discouraging about your partner. 

Instead, listen to your partner respectfully and focus on the topic at hand so you can find a way to solve the problem together.

Pro-tip: Do you find it tough to manage disagreements and fight fair?

10. Drop the blame game and adopt a problem-solving approach

When you find yourself locking horns with your spouse or disagreeing over something, refrain from the blame game. Passing the buck as ammunition to win a fight is a bad idea.

Develop a belief system that you are on the same team. Channelize your energies and undivided focus on resolving the conflicts in the marriage. 

It would be a good idea to utilize mistake-driven learning to build a better understanding with your spouse.

Pro-tip: Read this expert advice article to know why blaming your partner won’t help.

11. Always set aside time to connect

Busy schedules and personal obligations may keep you busy, but don’t let that be a reason to skip spending quality time together.

Happy couples set aside time to connect every day. This can become your morning ritual over breakfast or your after-work bonding session. Whenever you can devote 30 minutes to talking with your partner and de-stressing together, do it. Your marriage will benefit from it.

Pro-tip: Check out these ways to spend quality time with your partner. You can thank us later for this handy marriage advice for newlyweds!

12. Start the date night habit

You’d be amazed at how quickly newlyweds can become like housemates. As life gets busier, promotions arise, kids come along, or family issues rear their head, it’s oh so easy to let quality time together slip.

Start the date night habit now . Set aside one night a week where it’s just the two of you with no kids, friends, TV, or phones.

Go out, or cook a romantic meal in. Whatever you do, make it a priority and keep it that way as your marriage develops.

This is one of the most crucial marriage tips for newly married couples that you must abide by; it will definitely make a difference in your relationship.

Pro-tip:    Date night ideas don’t have to be elaborate and expensive. You can plan a date night at home too. For interesting ideas, you can watch this video .

13. Never go to bed angry

Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry. This Ephesians 4:26 Bible verse has lived on as sage advice for married couples – and for a good reason! 

A study affirms that not only does going to sleep angry strengthen negative memories, but it possibly contributes to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

You never know what tomorrow will bring or if you get a second chance to make things right with someone, so why risk it? 

The only thing going to bed feeling angry or upset with your spouse is going to accomplish- giving you both a terrible night’s sleep!

Pro- tip : Watch this video on how to deepen your connection with your partner to avert the possibility of going to bed angry!

14. Be honest about your sex life

Not only is sex a fun and exciting part of a marriage, but it is also one of the most important ways that couples connect on an intimate level.

If you are going to be happily married for the rest of your lives, there’s no reason why you should be faking orgasms or feeling nervous about making a move for sex with your partner. 

Couples should be honest about how many times they would like to be intimate with one another as well as what type of sex they do and do not enjoy.

Pro-tip: Do not miss out on these five fantastic tips to have great sex in your marriage!.

15. Set some long term goals

Long term goals promote teamwork and give you a sense of where your marriage is going and what your future might look like.

Setting and then checking in about goals together is fun and exciting and gives you a sense of shared achievement.

Your goal can be anything you’re both enthusiastic about, whether that’s learning ballroom dancing, meeting a savings goal, or building your own deck.

Pro-tip: Do you share goals with your partner? And if yes, how good are you at setting shared goals?

Take this quiz and find out now!

16. Talk about the future

Starting a family, getting a pet, or striving toward a new job are all exciting plans for the future, but those aren’t the only plans you should be making now that you’re married. Plan ahead for holidays and celebrations.

Whose family will you be spending the holidays with? Whose friends get dibs for events like New Year’s Eve? 

These are important questions that are best to figure out before you hit your first official holiday vacation as a newly married couple.

Pro-tip: If you are looking forward to planning a trip of a lifetime, you might like to check out these handy tips .

17. Celebrate everyday

Rather than letting everyday life take the shine off that newlywed feeling, embrace and celebrate it. Make little daily rituals together, such as always texting at lunchtime or having a coffee together after work.

Have fun while you do the grocery shopping and whip up that night’s dinner. The everyday things are the backbone of your marriage, so take the time to notice and appreciate them.

Pro-tip: Here are the eight little things that you can do to instill romance in your relationship.

18. Make memories together

As the years go by, a store of beautiful memories is a blessing for both of you. Start now by keeping your phone handy, so you can always snap photos of big and small occasions.

Keep ticket stubs, souvenirs, love notes, and cards from each other. You can even get into the scrapbooking habit, if crafts are your thing, or keep a digital archive of your favorite shared moments to look back on in years to come.

Pro-tip: Click here to learn about the seven awesome ways to create memories with your partner. 

19. Practice active listening

Practice active listening when you communicate with your partner, and your marriage will stay strong as the years go by.

Learn how to listen to each other with compassion and approach difficulties together as a team rather than as combatants. Practice speaking kindly and taking responsibility for your feelings and the way you express them.

Pro-tip: If you aim for a lasting relationship, practice these ten effective communication skills for healthy marriages .

20. Have some adventures while you can

No matter what stage of life you get married at, one thing is for sure – there’s a good chance life has a few surprises in store for you yet.

Why not take this chance to have some adventures before jobs, kids, finances, or health get in the way. Don’t worry if you had a big budget wedding; fantastic adventures don’t have to cost a lot of money.

Try something new, go somewhere new, or eat somewhere new to add variety and fun to every day.

Pro-tip: Check this video for some incredible ideas for couples to bring fun to their married life.

21. Don’t ignore other relationships

You may love spending every single free moment you have with your spouse, but don’t forget that your friends and family need you too. 

They were the ones who were there for you before you ever met your husband or wife, so remember to keep giving them your love and attention.

You’re married now, but that doesn’t mean you’ve become conjoined twins. It’s important for couples to maintain a sense of personal identity. 

Pro-tip: If you are wondering how to manage your friendships after marriage, here’s essential advice for newlyweds to help you tackle this aspect.

22. Cultivate and pursue your interests

While letting go of an elephant-sized ego is a good idea, you don’t always have to tag along with your spouse for a late-night movie show if you’re not up for it.

Acknowledge sincerely and early on where your differences in preferences and interests lie with your partner and let your spouse just go do that with their friends.

Meanwhile, you get to pursue your own interests with your circle of friends, and when it’s time to get back together with your spouse, you will both be happy and content individuals minus the claustrophobic clinginess.

This is great marriage advice for newlyweds to remember for life . A healthy space that you give each other will allow you both to flourish as self-aware and flourishing individuals.

Pro-tip: You might be wondering how it is possible to pursue your interests while being married. Well, here’s vital advice to help you make time for your hobbies.

23. Accept that your spouse is weird

This tip definitely falls into the category of humorous marriage advice for newlyweds. Although funny, it is very true and one of the best advice for newlyweds.

After two people are married, they get even more comfortable with one another. This comfort reveals strange quirks, interesting habits, unique ways of handling daily tasks, and more.

Everyone is kind of weird, and after the honeymoon, you’ll learn that your spouse is too. When you do, accept it and practice tolerance (some of that weirdness will annoy you at some point).

A word of caution: It is quite possible that your spouse, too, might be thinking on similar lines about you. So, the crux is, you need to take it easy and practice lots of patience.

Pro-tip: If you are looking for more funny marriage advice for newlyweds, don’t miss out on these amusing tips that will help you prepare for the upcoming challenges. 

24. Have a lot of fun in the bedroom

The best marital advice for newlyweds is to keep the spark alive in the relationship even in the bedroom.

You might think that it is so obvious that you do not need a third person to tell you about it by referring it to be ‘the best advice for newly married couples.’

A lot of marriage advice for newlyweds surrounds communication, emotional connection, and tolerance. All are important, but a large portion seems to have more difficulty in the bedroom than anywhere else.

This is especially the case for those that have been married for some time. To prevent sex from becoming a problem, have a lot of fun in the bedroom.

Pro tip: If you are shy to try something new, don’t be!

You are missing out on a lot of fun. Check out these amazing tips to spice up your sex life !

25. Get over yourself

We can all be a little selfish and self-absorbed at one time or another, but marriage is the time to get over yourself. Seriously!

A selfless marriage is a long-lasting one. Once you have a life partner , you have to consider them in every decision you make and most of the things you do.

Think about what your spouse needs, just be kind, and make small adjustments to make your love happy. Once you have a spouse, it is no longer all about you, but you do have someone that will put you first!

Pro-tip: If you are struggling with making your relationship a priority, run through these handy tips that will help you overcome the challenges.

Seeking advice by using the newlywed tip jar

The newlywed tip jar is very much in vogue and is undoubtedly one of the wonderful ways to seek marriage advice from your guests and loved ones.

You and your spouse can read all the loving wishes at leisure. The jar will make the guests feel valued as they will know that their wishes matter to the bride and groom.

8 Tips to Help You Thrive in Your First Year of Marriage

Just married wedding cake figurine

M arriage is hard. Everyone from Academy Award-winning actors to your hair stylist to the checkout clerk at Trader Joe’s delights in telling newlyweds this. Of course they rarely have a helpful answer for how to overcome the difficulties. Newly married couples get a lot of “never go to bed angry,” and “always tell the truth.” And that’s it.

The first year of marriage is incredibly important for your future happiness. During the beginning of my own marriage, I spoke with a therapist who referred to the first year as “the wet cement year,” because it’s the time when both members of a couple figure out how to live as partners without getting stuck, without developing bad habits that might trap them later. It’s a time to establish good patterns and ways of being together that should continue for the rest of your marriage.

When I got married, I hardly knew how to take care of myself, much less another person. How could my husband and I create a happy marriage from the start? How could we survive the first year, and come out happier than we were the day we tied the knot? As the child of a wildly unhappy marriage, lacking in marital role models, I was desperate to figure out how to be a good partner and how to successfully navigate the world as part of a pair, without losing myself in the process. So, I set out to crowdsource wisdom. For my new book, How to Be Married , I queried hundreds of men and women, from over 20 countries and all walks of life, about what makes a marriage successful. Here are 8 lessons I learned from people around the globe.

Make your house a home.

Create a space where the two of you actually want to spend time together. Danish women taught me how much this matters. You never want your home to feel like an office or a hotel that the two of you are just passing through. The women I met bought deliciously scented candles and soft blankets by the sackful, and truly embraced the creation of a happy and cozy home where a new couple could get away from the rest of the world.

Don’t forget romance.

Naturally, this advice came from the French. Keep your phone off the dinner table and don’t forget how fun it can be to dress up. Avoid the temptation to spend all of your time together in your sweatpants. And this advice goes both ways — your partner should put in an effort to win you over again and again.

Go easy on yourselves.

Not every day will be perfect, or even good, and that has to be okay. Talk about the imperfections and the pain points. Don’t beat yourselves up. The old adage says marriage is a marathon, not a sprint. And some days will feel like an obstacle course where you have to carry your spouse up a mountain and through a pit of mud. Obsessing over whether you have a strong marriage or whether you’re doing everything “right” are great ways to set yourself up for failure. I heard this over and over from tribeswomen in Kenya and Tanzania, who said they heeded the advice from older women — their marriage mentors — to accept that they wouldn’t learn everything about how to be a wife in a day. It’s a process.

Give yourself permission to lean on your partner.

Of course you can take care of yourself, but one of the nice things about being married is that you don’t have to shoulder life all on your own. Let your spouse take care of you once in a while. Women I met in Holland emphasized the importance of this. They were fiercely independent in their aspirations of achieving their creative goals and traveling the world alone, but they also didn’t think twice about working part-time after having kids and letting their husbands take on the financial heavy lifting for awhile.

Say thank you.

Complaining about marriage is practically an Olympic sport in America. Women all over the world, in literally every country I visited, called out American visitors as some of the worst offenders when it came to complaining about their marriages. Indian women living in small villages along the banks of the Brahmaputra River advised me that having unreasonable expectations for my spouse or comparing my relationship to others’ were surefire ways to feel unsatisfied. Instead, they encouraged me to practice gratitude, being truly thankful for the good things my husband brings to our relationship through regular verbal expressions of thanks. Pay attention to the great things your partner does instead of pointing out the negative. Even a small text message saying thank you can go an incredibly long way.

Take care of yourself.

The most sage advice I got came from an Orthodox Jewish wife and mother in Jerusalem, raising six children. “It’s easy to lose yourself in a marriage,” she told me. “It’s easy to nurture your husband and your relationship and forget about nurturing yourself. Take the time off to reset, and your marriage will be better for it.”

Keep having adventures.

Post-wedding blues are totally normal. After all the excitement of the wedding, it’s natural to feel a dip in your mood. But how can you keep that excitement in a marriage? Continue to have adventures with your spouse. Anthropologist and relationship expert Helen Fisher put it best when she wrote that “research shows that novelty — taking risks or trying something new — can trigger the release of dopa­mine in the brain . I’m not just talking about novelty in the bedroom (although that would be a good start). You can get the same effect from sampling a new type of cuisine together or riding the roller coaster at an amusement park.” Keep learning, growing and trying new things together.

Realize that equality won’t mean a fifty-fifty split all the time.

This final lesson I learned from a stay-at-home dad in Sweden, who had worked on a photography book documenting the lives of men taking government-supported parental leave. When I first got married, I worried that my feminist card would be revoked if my husband and I didn’t split things right down the middle. Now I realize how ridiculous that notion is. There are days, weeks even, when I do all of the housework (laundry, cooking, bed-making), because my husband is swamped with work. Then we switch. Balance in a marriage isn’t about a spreadsheet — it’s about both partners feeling supported. The balance of who does what will ebb and flow, and the most important thing is to be conscious of how it changes.

At the end of the day, the most important thing I learned as a newlywed about surviving my own (pretty hard) first year of marriage is that your marriage is nothing like anyone else’s. What works for someone else may not work for you. Take heed of the advice and counsel of the people you love and trust — then construct your own path. You’re in charge of your own happily ever after.

30 Adventure Wedding Readings for the Wanderlust Couple

  • Post author: Brittany
  • Post published: February 18, 2020
  • Post category: Readings & Vows

After much research and contemplation, I have compiled a list of what I think are the best adventure wedding readings for those couples looking for a nod to their next great adventure together… which is of course marriage!

These can also be incorporated into wedding vows for the adventurous couple!

Related Post: 25 Nerdy Wedding Readings for Unique Ceremonies

I’ve chosen readings that either explicitly talk about adventuring together, or that speak on this theme in a more subtle way. I tried to include some unique, less common ‘adventure’ wedding readings in this list, as well as many adventure love quotes interspersed throughout!

Before you read, you might want to download my FREE 10-Page Wedding Ceremony Guide on creating your own personalized wedding ceremony (complete with a sample script, readings, and vows!). You can get it here along with the Wayfaring Weddings newsletter! 🙂

PRO-TIP: After your wedding, keep your readings and vows ( and maybe the whole ceremony script! ) bound together in a cute binder that you can treasure forever in your home. I personally recommend checking out prices for artistic 3-ring planner binders on Amazon.

#1 – Our Great Adventure

We are today still dizzy with the astonishment of love. We are surrounded by affection – by smiles and kindliness, By flowers and music and gifts and celebration. Yet they enclose a silence Where we are close with one another. My eyes see only you. I hear nothing but the words We speak to one another This is the day we start our life together. This is our new beginning. – Pamela Dugdale

newly married travel

“Let us step into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.” J.K. Rowling

#2 – The Last Battle

“And as He spoke, He no longer looked to them like a lion; but the things that began to happen after that were so great and beautiful that I cannot write them. And for us this the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But for them it was only the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on for ever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.” — C.S. Lewis (Chronicles of Narnia, #7)

#3 – “I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love…”

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing. It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive. It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain!I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it or fade it, or fix it. I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human. It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself; if you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul; if you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy. I want to know if you can see beauty even when it’s not pretty, every day,and if you can source your own life from its presence. I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, “Yes!” It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up, after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done to feed the children. It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back. It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you, from the inside, when all else falls away. I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments. — Oriah Mountain Dreamer

#4 – The Love of God

The love of God, unutterable and perfect, Flows into a pure soul… The way that light rushes into a transparent object. The more love that it finds, the more it gives itself; So that, as we become clear and open, The more complete the joy of loving is. And the more souls who resonate together, The greater the intensity of their love, For mirror-like, each soul reflects the other. – Dante Alighieri 

#5 – The Meaning of Marriage

The meaning of marriage begins in the giving of words. We cannot join ourselves to one another without giving our word. And this must be an unconditional giving, for in joining ourselves to one another we join ourselves to the unknown. We can join one another only by joining the unknown. We must not be misled by the procedures of experimental thought: in life, in the world, we are never given two known results to choose between, but only one result that we choose without knowing what it is.

Because the condition of marriage is worldly and its meaning communal, no one party to it can be solely in charge. What you alone think it ought to be, it is not going to be. Where you alone think you want it to go, it is not going to go. It is going where the two of you — and marriage, time, life, history, and the world — will take it. You do not know the road; you have committed your life to a way.

In marriage as in poetry, the given word implies the acceptance of a form that is never entirely of one’s own making. When understood seriously enough, a form is a way of accepting and of living within the limits of creaturely life. We live only one life, and die only one death. A marriage cannot include everybody, because the reach of responsibility is short. A poem cannot be about everything, for the reach of attention and insight is short. – Poet and environmental activist   Wendell Berry

#6 – The Country of Marriage

“…our life reminds me of a forest in which there is a graceful clearing and in that opening a house, an orchard and garden, comfortable shades, and flowers, red and yellow in the sun, a pattern made in the light for the light to return to. The forest is mostly dark, its ways to be made a new day after day, the dark richer than the light and more blessed, provided we stay brave enough to keep on going in.” -Wendell Berry

#7 – “Can one have love?”

“Can one have love? If we could, love would need to be a thing, a substance that one can have, own, possess. The truth is, there is no such thing as “love.” “Love” is abstraction, perhaps a goddess or an alien being, although nobody has ever seen this goddess. In reality, there exists only the act of loving. To love is a productive activity. It implies caring for, knowing, responding, affirming, enjoying: the person, the tree, the painting, the idea. It means bringing to life, increasing his/her/its aliveness. It is a process, self-renewing and self-increasing… To say “I have a great love for you” is meaningless. Love is not a thing that one can have, but a process, an inner activity that one is the subject of, I can love, I can be in love, but in love I have … nothing. In fact, the less I have, the more I can love.” -Erich Fromm, From To Have or To Be

“There is no remedy for love but to love more.” Henry David Thoreau

#8 – Gift from the Sea

“When you love someone, you do not love them all the time, in exactly the same way, from moment to moment. It is an impossibility. It is even a lie to pretend to. And yet this is exactly what most of us demand. We have so little faith in the ebb and flow of life, of love, of relationships. We leap at the flow of the tide and resist in terror its ebb. We are afraid it will never return. We insist on permanency, on duration, on continuity; when the only continuity possible, in life as in love, is in growth, in fluidity – in freedom, in the sense that the dancers are free, barely touching as they pass, but partners in the same pattern.” -Anne Morrow Lindbergh, From Gift From the Sea

“”Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward at the same direction.” Antoine de Saint-Exupery

#9 – Song of the Open Road

The road is before us! It is safe—I have tried it—my own feet have tried it well—be not detained!

Let the paper remain on the desk unwritten, and the book on the shelf unopened! Let the tools remain in the workshop! let the money remain unearned! Let the school stand! mind not the cry of the teacher! Let the preacher preach in his pulpit! let the lawyer plead in the court, and the judge expound the law.

Camerado, I give you my hand! I give you my love more precious than money, I give you myself before preaching or law; Will you give me yourself? will you come travel with me? Shall we stick by each other as long as we live? – Walt Whitman

“The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.” Mawlana Jalal-al-Din Rumi

#10 – Patagonia

I said perhaps Patagonia, and pictured a peninsula, wide enough for a couple of ladderback chairs to wobble on at high tide. I thought

of us in breathless cold, facing a horizon round as a coin, looped in a cat’s cradle strung by gulls from sea to sun. I planned to wait

till the waves had bored themselves to sleep, till the last clinging barnacles, growing worried in the hush, had paddled off in tiny coracles, till

those restless birds, your actor’s hands, had dropped slack into your lap, until you’d turned, at last, to me. When I spoke of Patagonia, I meant

skies all empty aching blue. I meant years. I meant all of them with you. -Kate Clanchy

#11 – On Marriage

Then Almitra spoke again and said, And what of Marriage, master?      And he answered saying:      You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.      You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.      Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.      But let there be spaces in your togetherness,      And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.      Love one another, but make not a bond of love:      Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.      Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.      Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.      Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,      Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.      Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.      For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.      And stand together yet not too near together:      For the pillars of the temple stand apart,      And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow. -Khalil Gibran

“No one else, Love, will sleep in my dreams. You will go, we will go together, over the waters of time. No one else will travel through the shadows with me, only you, evergreen, ever sun, ever moon.” Pablo Neruda

#12 – Friendship

Such love I cannot analyse; It does not rest in lips or eyes, Neither in kisses nor caress. Partly, I know, it’s gentleness

And understanding in one word Or in brief letters. It’s preserved By trust and by respect and awe. These are the words I’m feeling for.

Two people, yes, two lasting friends. The giving comes, the taking ends There is no measure for such things. For this all Nature slows and sings. – Elizabeth Jennings

“Two separate beings, in different circumstances, face to face in freedom and seeking justification of their existence through one another, will always live an adventure full of risk and promise.” Simone de Beauvoir , The Second Sex

#13 – Tell Me

Tell me where you go When you look faraway, I find I am too slow To catch your mood. I hear The slow and far-off sea And waves that beat a shore That could be trying to Call us toward our end, make us hurry through This little space of dark. Yet love can stretch it wide. Each life means so much work You are my wealth, my pride. The good side of me, see That you stay by my side Two roots of one great tree. -Elizabeth Jennings

#14 – A Lovely Song For Jackson

If I were a seaweed at the bottom of the sea, I’d find you, you’d find me. Fishes would see us and shake their heads Approvingly from their submarine beds. Crabs and sea horses would bid us glad cry, And sea anemone smile us by. Sea gulls alone would wing and make moan, Wondering, wondering, where we had gone.

If I were an angel and lost in the sun, You would be there, and you would be one. Birds that flew high enough would find us and sing Gladder to find us than for anything, And clouds would be proud of us, light everywhere Would clothe us gold gaily, for dear and for fair. Trees stretching skyward would see us and smile, And all over heaven we’d laugh for a while. Only the fishes would search and make moan, Wondering, wondering, where we had gone. – V.R. Lang

#15 – Passage from Love in the Time of Cholera

“She clung to her husband. And it was just at the time when he needed her most, because he suffered the disadvantage of being ten years ahead of her as he stumbled alone through the mists of old age, with the even greater disadvantage of being a man and weaker than she was. In the end they knew each other so well that by the time they had been married for thirty years they were like a single divided being, and they felt uncomfortable at the frequency with which they guessed each other’s thoughts without intending to, or the ridiculous accident of one of them anticipating in public what the other was going to say. Together they had overcome the daily incomprehension, the instantaneous hatred, the reciprocal nastiness and fabulous flashes of glory in the conjugal conspiracy. It was the time when they loved each other best, without hurry or excess, when both were most conscious of and grateful for their incredible victories over adversity. Life would still present them with other mortal trials, of course, but that no longer mattered: they were on the other shore.”

― Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, From Love in the Time of Cholera

#16 – The Confirmation

Yes, yours, my love, is the right human face. I in my mind had waited for this long, Seeing the false and searching for the true, Then found you as a traveller finds a place Of welcome suddenly amid the wrong Valleys and rocks and twisting roads. But you, What shall I call you? A fountain in a waste, A well of water in a country dry, Or anything that’s honest and good, an eye That makes the whole world seem bright. Your open heart, Simple with giving, gives the primal deed, The first good world, the blossom, the blowing seed, The hearth, the steadfast land, the wandering sea. Not beautiful or rare in every part. But like yourself, as they were meant to be. – Edwin Muir

“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.”  Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist)

#17 – My Wife

Trusty, dusky, vivid, true, With eyes of gold and bramble-dew, Steel-true and blade-straight, The great artificer Made my mate.

Honour, anger, valour, fire; A love that life could never tire, Death quench or evil stir, The mighty master Gave to her.

Teacher, tender, comrade, wife, A fellow-farer true through life, Heart-whole and soul-free The august father Gave to me. – Robert Louis Stevenson

“Love, like everything else in life, should be a discovery, an adventure, and like most adventures, you don’t know you’re having one until you’re right in the middle of it.” E.A. Bucchianeri

#18 – “Love should run out to meet love…”

“Love should run out to meet love with open arms. Indeed, the ideal story is that of two people who go into love step for step, with a fluttered consciousness, like a pair of children venturing together into a dark room. From the first moment when they see each other, with a pang of curiosity, through stage after stage of growing pleasure and embarrassment, they can read the expression of their own trouble in each other’s eyes. There is here no declaration properly so called; the feeling is so plainly shared, that as soon as the man knows what it is in his own heart, he is sure of what it is in the woman’s.” -Robert Louis Stevenson, From Virginibus Puerisque

“They who travel the rocky road together arrive in paradise undivided.”  Karey White

#19 – Not Love Perhaps

This is not Love, perhaps, Love that lays down its life, that many waters cannot quench, nor the floods drown, But something written in lighter ink, said in a lower tone, something, perhaps, especially our own.

A need, at times, to be together and talk, And then the finding we can walk More firmly through dark narrow places, And meet more easily nightmare faces; A need to reach out, sometimes, hand to hand, And then find Earth less like an alien land; A need for alliance to defeat The whisperers at the corner of the street.

A need for inns on roads, islands in seas, Halts for discoveries to be shared, Maps checked, notes compared; A need, at times, of each for each, Direct as the need of throat and tongue for speech. – Arthur Seymour John Tessimond

“But I love your feet only because they walked upon the earth and upon the wind and upon the waters, until they found me.” Pablo Neruda

#20 – The Master Speed

No speed of wind or water rushing by But you have speed far greater. You can climb Back up a stream of radiance to the sky, And back through history up the stream of time. And you were given this swiftness, not for haste Nor chiefly that you may go where you will, But in the rush of everything to waste, That you may have the power of standing still- Off any still or moving thing you say. Two such as you with such a master speed Cannot be parted nor be swept away From one another once you are agreed That life is only life forevermore Together wing to wing and oar to oar. – Robert Frost

“And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again- to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.”   Pico Iyer

#21 – Here’s another poem…

Here’s another poem, like all others before and after, dedicated to you. There isn’t anything left to be said but I will spend my life trying to put you into words. You who is every goodness, every optimism and hope. Your love is a better fate for me than anything I could wish for. If you are a part of me, then you’re the best part. And if you’re separate from me, then you are my destination. But I’ve become a weary traveller, so please, let us never be apart. ―  Kamand Kojouri

#22 – A Marriage

A marriage makes of two fractional lives a whole; It gives two purposeless lives a work, And doubles the strength of each to perform it. It gives to two questioning natures a reason for living And something to live for. It will give new gladness to the sunshine, A new fragrance to the flowers, a new beauty to the earth And a new mystery to life.

– Mark Twain

#23 – Hinterhof

Stay near to me and I’ll stay near to you — As near as you are dear to me will do, Near as the rainbow to the rain, The west wind to the windowpane, As fire to the hearth, as dawn to dew.

Stay true to me and I’ll stay true to you — As true as you are new to me will do, New as the rainbow in the spray, Utterly new in every way, New in the way that what you say is true.

Stay near to me, stay true to me. I’ll stay As near, as true to you as heart could pray. Heart never hoped that one might be Half of the things you are to me — The dawn, the fire, the rainbow and the day. – James Fenton

“and then every once in a while, you remember to pull up and look at your partner, your life partner, really look at the one who travels down the lonely road right by your side, and you realize how much you are in this together.”   Harlan Coben

#24 – I Would Live in Your Love

I would live in your love as the sea-grasses live in the sea, Borne up by each wave as it passes, drawn down by each wave that recedes; I would empty my soul of the dreams that have gathered in me, I would beat with your heart as it beats, I would follow your soul as it leads. – Sara Teasdale

#25 – These I Can Promise

I cannot promise you a life of sunshine; I cannot promise riches, wealth, or gold; I cannot promise you an easy pathway That leads away from change or growing old. But I can promise all my heart’s devotion; A smile to chase away your tears of sorrow; A love that’s ever true and ever growing; A hand to hold in yours through each tomorrow. – Mark Twain

“What we find in a soulmate is not something wild to tame, but something wild to run with.”  Robert Brault

#26 – Reply

I cannot swear with any certainty That I will always feel as I do now, Loving you with the same fierce ecstasy, Needing the same our lips upon my brow. Nor can I promise stars forever bright, Or vow green leaves will never turn to gold. I cannot see beyond this present night To say what promises the dawn may hold. And yet, I know my heart must follow you High up to hilltops, low through vales of tears, Through golden days and days of somber hue. And love will only deepen with the years, Becoming sun and shadow, wind and rain, Wine that grows mellow, bread that will sustain. -Naomi Long Madgett

#27 – Love’s Insight

Take me, accept me, love me as I am; Love me with my disordered wayward past; Love me with all the lusts that hold me fast In bonds of sensuality and shame. Love me as flesh and blood, not the ideal Which vainly you imagine me to be; Love me, the mixed up creature that you see; Love not the man you dream of but the real. And yet they err who say that love is blind. Beneath my earthly, sordid self your love Discerns capacities which rise above The futile passions of my carnal mind. Love is creative. Your love brings to birth God’s image in the earthiest of earth. – Robert Winnett

#28 – I’ll Still Be Loving You

I’ll still be loving you. When your hair has turned to winter and your teeth are in a plate, When your getter up and go has gone to stop and wait I’ll still be loving you.

When your attributes have shifted beyond the bounds of grace, I’ll count your many blessings, not the wrinkles in your face I’ll still be loving you.

When the crackle in your voice matches that within your knee and the times are getting frequent that you don’t remember me I’ll still be loving you.

Growing old is not a sin, it’s something we all do. I hope you’ll always understand – I’ll still be loving you. – C. David Hay

#29 – Love is…

Love is… Love is feeling cold in the back of vans Love is a fanclub with only two fans Love is walking holding paintstained hands Love is Love is fish and chips on winter nights Love is blankets full of strange delights Love is when you don’t put out the light Love is Love is the presents in Christmas shops Love is when you’re feeling Top of the Pops Love is what happens when the music stops Love is Love is white panties lying all forlorn Love is pink nightdresses still slightly warm Love is when you have to leave at dawn Love is Love is you and love is me Love is prison and love is free Love’s what’s there when you are away from me Love is…

– Adrian Henri

“Tell him he was my greatest adventure. Tell him I love him.”  Fisher Amelie

#30 – Unlimited Friendliness

This is what should be done by the man and woman who are wise, who seek the good, and who know the meaning of the place of peace. Let them be fervent, upright, and sincere, without conceit of self, easily contented and joyous, free of cares; let them not be submerged by the things of the world; let them not take upon themselves the burden of worldly goods; let their senses be controlled; let them be wise but not puffed up, and let them not desire great possessions even for their families. Let them do nothing that is mean or that the wise would reprove. May all beings be happy and at their ease. May they be joyous and live in safety. All beings, whether weal or strong—omitting none—in high, middle, or low realms of existence, small or great, visible or invisible, near or far away, born or to be born: may all beings be happy and at their ease. Let none deceive another, or despise any being in any state. Let none by anger or ill-will wish harm to another. Even as a mother watches over and protects her only child, so with a boundless mind should one cherish all living beings, radiating friendliness over the entire world, above, below, and all around without limit. So let them cultivate a boundless good will toward the entire world, unlimited, free from ill-will or enmity. Standing or walking, sitting or lying down, during all their waking hours, let them establish this mindfulness of good will, which is the highest state. Abandoning vain discussions, having a clear vision, free from sense appetites, those who are perfect will never again know rebirth.

Talk about money early and often

Combine your finances, or some of them, know your priorities, do the math: budgeting basics still apply, don’t forget these post-wedding to-dos.

The basics of building a budget are similar whether you’re married or not. You need to plan for your bills and financial goals given a certain finite resource — your income. Adding another person to the mix, changing personal finance to family finance, can increase security and income while decreasing some expenses, but it can also muddy things. With ample communication and flexibility, you can lessen the risk of complications.

Hopefully, you’ve had some serious conversations about money long before your wedding day. If not, don’t wait any longer — knowing your new spouse’s money history, hang-ups and hopes will help you craft and stick to a budget.

“It’s better to find out now whether you’re even in the same ballpark, instead of learning later that you’re the equivalent of financial oil and water,” says Charlie Bolognino, certified financial planner with Side-by-Side Financial Planning LLC.

Here’s what to discuss:

What money was like growing up. Your history and even your parents’ attitudes about money can shape your personal beliefs and behaviors today.

How you’ve managed money until now, including regrets, how much debt you’re bringing to the table and your current credit score. If you don’t know yours, sign up here . It’s better to openly discuss money woes upfront than to find out about them down the road.

How money makes you feel. Does the exhilaration of a shopping trip or the checking off of this month’s bills satisfy you most?

Your financial goals . Discuss what you hope to accomplish with your money, both in the short and long run.

Have these discussions regularly — your financial picture and your attitudes about money can change over time.

Whether or not to combine finances in marriage is a personal decision, and there are several ways to merge your money . However, even if you and your new spouse decide to keep individual accounts, it makes sense to have one shared account for recurring household expenses such as your mortgage or rent, utilities and shared vehicle payments. Settle on what bills will be paid out of this account ahead of time — the “needs” column of your budget, discussed below, is a good place to start.

Still, Bolognino doesn’t advise throwing everything in one pot: “Make sure each partner has an amount of cash in the budget that’s just for them to enjoy, no strings or judgment attached.” After all, no adult wants to ask permission for haircut money.

If you do combine all accounts, make sure to set ground rules. Make it clear how much can be spent per person on wants each month, and set a ceiling that neither spouse will go over without first consulting the other.

Regardless of your decision, be flexible. As with most aspects of budgeting, you’ll learn which specific money management approaches work best for your marriage over time.

» QUIZ: Are you ready to combine finances?

If you’re an experienced budgeter, you likely already know the importance of saving for retirement, paying off debt and having an emergency fund. But if this is the first time you and your spouse have set financial priorities, here are the basics:

Save for retirement . Make sure you’re both setting aside money for retirement, enough to take full advantage of any employer match on your respective 401(k) plans.

Tackle toxic debt such as credit cards , payday loans and title loans. Consider paying this out of your shared account. Even if one spouse amassed more debt before the marriage, alignment on your financial goals, such as getting out of debt, should help buffer any potential conflict here.

Build your household emergency fund . While you’ll want to have at least a small buffer for emergencies at all times, don’t stress about stockpiling several months of replacement income until you’re regularly contributing to your retirement and no longer paying high interest rates on toxic debt. To help you tackle any of those, try boosting your income with side hustles — just figure out how to make money in a way that fits your schedule.

This series of financial priorities is cyclical. In other words, once you’ve eliminated toxic debt and you’re comfortable you have enough in your emergency fund to cover unexpected expenses, revisit your retirement, aiming to ultimately contribute at least 15%. Rinse, repeat.

» MORE: Best savings accounts for your emergency fund

If possible, get a head start on your joint, household spending in the weeks and months leading up to the marriage. It will be one less thing to work through during the honeymoon stage.

Calculate your combined take-home income. Add back automatically deducted contributions for health insurance and retirement; you’ll budget for those later.

Choose a budgeting approach. We recommend the 50/30/20 budget as a starting point. With this budget, 50% of your income will go to needs — including the expenses deducted from your paycheck — 30% to wants, and 20% to savings and debt paydown beyond making minimum payments. The 50/30/20 budget calculator can help get you started.

Track your progress. There are numerous budgeting apps and software programs to help you track and automate your finances. You can even opt for pencil and paper; just make sure you’re tracking everything.

Adjust as needed. Evaluate your progress quarterly and make necessary changes. Maybe you can stand to allocate more money to savings, or perhaps an unexpected expense means you need to tighten the purse strings for a little while.

Once it’s official, there are a few bookkeeping matters that need to be taken care of right away. This list applies only to budgeting, so don’t forget to update things like your life insurance and retirement beneficiaries and your will.

Carefully choose your health insurance . If you both have health insurance through an employer, talk to your human resources departments to find out how your premium will change by adding a spouse. Compare this with the benefits offered, and choose the plan that will give you the most bang for your buck.

Update any name changes with all financial institutions. Among others, you’ll want to make sure you let your bank, credit card companies and loan servicers know that your name has changed.

Add your spouse to any accounts that are now joint. Consider credit cards and utilities in addition to bank accounts — you want to make sure your husband or wife is able to make changes to services like electricity and cable, when needed.

Update your tax withholdings. Some married couples stand to pay more income taxes when they file jointly in what’s known as the “ marriage penalty .” You can lessen the blow by updating the amount withheld from your paycheck and by maximizing your deductions when it’s time to file.

How to Take the Stress Out of a Trip With Your Partner

  • Why Travel Can Be Stressful

Preparing for Your Journey

Stress during your trip.

  • Steps to Avoid Travel Stress

It is a great privilege to have the time, money, and flexibility to travel, whether you are hiking the national parks or exploring another country. That said, traveling can be stressful! From finding your way to the airport to security lines to planning out the events of your trip, it seems like there can be pitfalls at every turn. And that’s only being responsible for yourself! 

Traveling with others—especially a partner—has its own unique stressors. There's a reason "I need a vacation from this vacation" is a saying. Read on to learn more about how to handle the potential stress of traveling with a partner.

Why Preparing for Travel With Your Partner Can Be Stressful

In my experience, there are two different types of travelers—those who get to the airport three hours early just in case something bad happens, and those who cannot stand waiting and need to time out their arrival exactly so that there’s no down time. My partner and I are these two opposites: I’m the former and he’s the latter.

What we’ve discovered, after years of traveling together, is that we are both feeling the same kind of anxiety about each other’s respective traveling needs.

It makes me incredibly anxious not to get to the airport hours early, and it makes him just as anxious to have to wait.

This leaves us in a balancing act of trying to be considerate of each other’s needs while also taking care of our own.

Even if you and your partner are the same type of traveler, traveling together suddenly makes you responsible for another person, not just yourself. Traveling alone, you can do whatever you want; traveling with your partner, you have to take their needs into consideration—an added stressor on top of all the existing stress of traveling.

So, how do you mitigate the unique stress of traveling with your partner?

I’ve found that two things are crucial when planning on traveling with a partner, especially one who is a different kind of traveler than I am— communication and compromise .

Communication

The only way your partner will understand how you feel about traveling is if you explain it to them. Talking about your worries and fears lets your partner know that you are not making plans arbitrarily. If they know what exactly is stressing you out the most about traveling, they can better understand what you need in order to feel good about your journey. 

The same goes with you understanding your partner’s anxieties —be open to hearing what they are experiencing and the worries and fears that they have about traveling with you.

Each of you being able to express what you are concerned about can only help you both approach traveling in a way that suits the both of you.

For example, in preparation for one of our last trips together, I explained to my partner that I wanted to avoid having to literally run from the security checkpoint to our gate to catch our plane, which had happened on one of our previous trips. Being able to relate my anxiety to an actual event helped my partner understand how I was feeling and why I wanted to err on the side of caution.

This kind of communication leads to compromise. 

For example, once my partner and I had both aired our concerns, we talked through a schedule that would make us both happy. “Ok, it takes 45 minutes to get to the airport, so if we leave at this time, we’ll have an hour and a half to get through security and find our gate—that will be plenty of time.” This way, I get a buffer in case something takes longer than planned, but we’re not waiting around for hours if things do go smoothly.

It’s important to work together to come up with a plan that satisfies both of you.

This might involve some back-and-forth, but it’s only a compromise if both of you gain something and relinquish something.

Compromise means taking the time to understand where your partner is coming from. Go into this conversation with an open mind and empathy towards what your partner is experiencing.

If you can’t reach a compromise involving the both of you traveling together, it’s ok to stick up for what you need and leave for the airport (or train or bus) at different times and meet up there later. This in itself is a compromise—you both get something you want, but don’t have the experience of traveling the first leg of your journey together.

So, you’ve made it to the airport, train station, or bus station and are on your way. Now what? It’s good to be prepared for certain stressors that might arise once you reach your destination.

Being Somewhere New

Traveling to a new place can be very exciting, but it can also be stressful. Some people have a hard time feeling comfortable in a place they don’t know very well or at all. If this is you, talk to your partner about how you’re feeling; if this is your partner, listen to their concerns. 

If you know that you or your partner have a tendency towards anxiety in new places , take the time to plan in advance where exactly you’ll be going and what you’ll be doing.

Making definitive plans and expecting that some stress might rear its ugly head while adjusting to your new surroundings can take the wind out of your or your partner’s worries. 

The fear of getting lost in a new place can also contribute to travel stress. Remembering that you and your partner have things like GPS and maps (not to mention locals who could help you out if you get turned around) can mitigate this fear. It might also help to know that you are not alone—you have your partner with you, and will the whole time. If any problems arise, you can work them out together.

When planning a trip, you and your partner might want to be sure that you are making the most of your time; however, this can also lead to stress. The pressure of doing everything you want to do can become overwhelming, and might not leave room for you to slow down and enjoy what you are doing in the moment.

There’s something to be said for downtime , so that you’re not just running from activity to activity.

If you know your partner has a tendency to over-plan (or if you’re the culprit here), talk to them about what you can reasonably accomplish in a day. Giving yourselves some time to breathe is always a good thing.

Dealing With Things When They Go Wrong

Maybe you or your partner have trouble coping when things don’t go exactly to plan—this can also add stress to your travels. Talk to your partner about the possibility of things going pear-shaped. If it feels better to have a second (or third or fourth) option for any given activity, do that planning up-front, especially if you or your partner are not what you’d consider spontaneous.

If you know that you or your partner are particularly adept at keeping a cool head in the face of adversity, talk to your partner about how you’d deal with things if they go wrong.

Knowing that one of you, at least, won’t be panicking can help you both get through any challenging situation.

Spending All Your Time Together

Something that you might not think about until it’s actually happening is that on a trip, you and your partner will be together 24/7. For most people, this is different than day-to-day life—maybe you don’t live together, or one or both of you are working and therefore don’t spend all day every day together. This constant time together can cause unforeseen stress.

Even if spending all your time together is not inherently stressful, it is useful to be aware of any differences in your normal routine that might come up.

You or your partner might have to make some accommodations in order to keep the other person comfortable. This could mean anything from taking less time in the bathroom in the morning to changing what time you go to bed. Having conversations about spending this time together can help mitigate any potential friction.

It's also completely normal and healthy to need—and ask for—some alone time even on a trip with your partner. Everybody needs space now and then.

If you discuss this ahead of time, you can plan for each of you to find something to do alone. Maybe one of you takes a spa day or hangs out by the pool while the other visits a museum they're interested in. Don't be ashamed or afraid to have some fun by yourselves.

Steps to Take to Avoid Travel Stress

There are easy things you can do to help keep stress at bay when you’re traveling with your partner:

  • Plan, plan, plan : If you know you or your partner functions better with a detailed itinerary, make sure you have things secured ahead of time. This could involve anything from scheduling your daily activities to researching the local public transportation to make sure you are locked and loaded for your trip.
  • Make lists : Having everything written down and easy to doublecheck means that you are less likely to forget something important.
  • Pack well in advance : This way, if you realize you are missing something (like tiny toothpaste tubes or 4oz bottles for transporting shampoo), you have plenty of time to go get it rather than running around like a maniac at the last minute.
  • Decide on your priorities : Having a firm idea of what you and your partner absolutely need to do on your trip (versus things you’d like to do if you have time) can help temper expectations and make it less likely that you or your partner will end up disappointed. And if you do get to every activity on your list, so much the better!
  • Don’t panic : It’s rare that you would be visiting a place where you and your partner are completely and utterly alone, with no access to the outside world—therefore, no matter what comes up, chances are you’ll be able to get the help you need.
  • Remember…you two are together : Two heads are better than one. With your partner by your side, you can troubleshoot if or when things go awry, and rely on each other’s skills. Maybe you’re a whiz with maps while your partner has a penchant for planning; together, you can make your trip as stress-free as possible.

Final Thoughts

Traveling can be stressful, and especially so when you have your partner with you. You might have different approaches to traveling, or you might find that you or your partner are over-planning in an effort to dispel FOMO . But by planning ahead and communicating your needs to your partner, you can make any trip run smoothly.

Single or married, those without children can benefit from a solid estate plan

It is a common misconception that if an individual or couple does not have children, there is no real need to create an estate plan.

However, it is an important step in planning for the future that everyone can benefit from.

No will in place? What happens?

When this happens, it means an individual dies intestate. Without children, 100% of one’s assets will pass on to a spouse, but they must be legally married to that person. If an individual is unmarried, their parents are next in line to inherit the assets. Next in line are grandparents, then if the individual has no living grandparents their estate is split between their grandmother and grandfathers' sides of the family. Finally, if an individual has no surviving family to inherit their estate, the assets are passed on to the State of Florida.

Child-free could benefit from a plan, too

An individual or couple without children are still able to derive many benefits from the creation of an estate plan. The first is the ability to pass on property and other important assets to loved ones who are not heirs or part of the specified group of family members that assets are passed on to when an individual dies intestate. A person can also choose to leave contributions of their estate as a donation to charities or other organizations that may have had an impact on their life.

More: Planning for long-term care before you need it: What are the options?

A question many people who do not have children may ask is, who will care for me as I become older? This question can be answered through the creation of an estate plan because it allows you to decide how you want to be cared for as you age. Whether this be through in-home care with a hired caregiver, an assisted living facility, a nursing home or a combination of these. This allows an individual to have peace of mind that they will reside in a place of their choice as they age.

Aspects of estate planning

An important aspect of an estate plan is the ability to name a power of attorney, a healthcare surrogate, and an executor of the estate. In the event you are unable to make decisions yourself, a power of attorney can handle financial matters and a healthcare surrogate can make medical decisions. The executor is the person who handles the estate after the individual passes, this person ensures that the estate is dispersed as the creator wanted it to be. An individual should make sure that the person or people designated to take on these responsibilities is someone they can trust, as their decisions could have a big impact on one’s estate or life.

Finally, many people who do not have children still have pets whom they love dearly. Like a child, these pets can have guardians named to care for them after their owner passes away. This guardian can be a friend, family member, or even a trusted pet organization, such as the SPCA, who will find the pet a new family.

There is no perfect time to create an estate plan, but the creation of one sooner rather than later can be a relief when the time comes for these decisions to have an effect on an individual’s life. Although this may appear to be a daunting task, the right estate planning attorney will help to ensure that this is a smooth process, and it is done correctly.

Stephen J. Lacey, JD, LLM, is a member of the law firm Lacey Lyons Rezanka. His practice areas focus on estate planning and probate.
