WHERE THE HONEYMOON ORIGINATED
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST


These days, newlywed couples leave for their honeymoon almost right after their wedding reception. While this is now considered a fun time for the couple to be together and de-stress from all of the wedding planning they have been doing for several months, the original reason for this trip was much different.

Back in the dark ages, during the time when a bride was imprisoned and captured by her new husband instead of making a choice to marry him, the man would escape with her shortly after the wedding and keep her hidden somewhere in secret. The new bride and groom would stay together in secret for twenty-eight days and drink fermented honey so that they would not feel so awkward and uneasy around each other. The purpose of this was so that when they were finally found, the bride would hopefully be pregnant. Another reason why they drank the honey was because it was once thought that doing so for twenty-eight days would give them a son within the year. This is where the term “honeymoon” comes from.
