What is meant when people refer to the "honeymoon period" in a relationship?
- RPLv 72 years agoFavorite Answer
It refers to the earliest period of the relationship which both parties are on their best behavior and most likely to be tolerant or accepting of attitudes and actions they might not otherwise embrace. If a relationship were a rose, one might say the honeymoon period is when they can only see the blossom, but, after that, they discover the thorn(s).

The beginning before problems develop
- busterwasmycatLv 72 years ago
That is when everything seems great and the problems (there are always problems) are still possible to ignore. At some point, the glow is off the new thing and you start to see it for what it is instead of what you thought it would be and wanted it to be.
Newlyweds are almost always super-happy. They almost never stay that way.

Honeymoon period is when everything is new and fresh and exciting. It generally refers to a very positive and happy period, before people allow the mundane aspects of life cause their relationship to become more of a routine and some of the spark/shine is lost.

It may be described as the novelty ("newness") phase of a relationship and everything seems just perfect.
It should also be noted that the "honeymoon phase" may pertain to someone in an abusive relationship with a domestic partner, which may occur in the "cycle of violence." The abuser may seem a lot calmer after the abusive episode and may give the *false impression* that he/she she will change for the better. (Just an fyi that abuse is *not* necessarily "just" physical abuse but may include mental, emotional, and/or financial abuse.)
If anyone is struggling with an abusive partner, this website has a toll-free 24/7 helpline and related resources:

The f**k struck phase, the part of the relationship where everything is exciting, an adventure, a voyage of discovery. You want to spend every single moment together. The part before the novelty wears off and you find out if the relationship is going to be a long-termer.
