New Year's Resolutions for Honeymooners

A Dozen Ways to Make Love Last

By

When you're in love, New Year's Eve is one of the most romantic nights of the year. The promises you make then can go a long way toward ensuring a happy honeymoon and a solid marriage. That said, here are a dozen resolutions you may want to consider starting off the year with:

New Years Resolution #1: Figure out where we want to go on our honeymoon already! (This directory of romantic destinations will help.)

New Years Resolution #2: Make reservations early so we're sure to get the place we want on the dates we want.

New Years Resolution #3: Keep my sense of humor -- and understand that everything from the trip to the airport to the wedding night may surprise.

New Years Resolution #4: Be smart about buying airline tickets, know in advance how much luggage we're allowed to carry on -- and how much time to allow at the airport.

New Years Resolution #5: Surprise my spouse (with a game, a love letter, or silly honeymoon gift) once we settle in at our destination.

New Years Resolution #6: Not overschedule our days -- so we have time to relax and just be.

New Years Resolution #7: Set aside time each day of the vacation for myself -- and respect my mate's private moments, too.

New Years Resolution #8: Remember that it's not just me anymore. There are two of us now to consider.

New Years Resolution #9: Taste something (or lots of things!) on the honeymoon that I've never savored before.

New Years Resolution #10: Understand that even on the honeymoon we might have a fight or disagreement -- but it's not the end of the world. We'll get over it, move on, forgive, and continue to love one another.

New Years Resolution #11: Be patient with my spouse, even if I don't always understand his or her emotions.

New Years Resolution #12: Share my hopes, my dreams, and my future with the one I love most.
