Examples of honeymoon in a Sentence

  1. Ryan Pack:

    Marriage: What is marriage? Marriage is just a bond between two people. The task you perform when your married are the same task you perform when your not married, so is there really any reason to get married, no. Its just something people do for attention and entertainment. People are too unstable and unpredictable, you never know if they really love you. I don't think marriage is safe, I don't think its worth the risk. You never know how its going to end, in success or tragedy. You could become a victim of violence, you could end up in the courtroom for years arguing over who gets custody of the children, how much your going to pay in child support and who gets what possessions. It's stressful and a waste of your life. You don't need a marriage certificate, a wedding dress, a fancy, expensive ring, a big ceremony, or a honeymoon to show your loyalty, respect, and love to someone. Qualities like loyalty, respect, and love come from always doing what's just not from getting married and having children.

  2. Fred MagnanimiisFounder:

  3. Herman Melville:

    How it is I know not; but there is no place like a bed for confidential disclosures between friends. Man and wife, they say, there open the very bottom of their souls to each other; and some old couples often lie and chat over old times till nearly morning. Thus, then, in our hearts honeymoon, lay I and Queequeg -- a cozy, loving pair.

  4. Marco Rubio:

    We cannot have a commander in chief that is not ready the first day in office, because Valdimir Putin is not going to wait for the next president to catch up, there is no honeymoon period in foreign policy.

  5. Gerald Ford:

    I do not want a honeymoon with you. I want a good marriage. I want progress, and I want problemsolving which requires my best efforts and also your best efforts. I have no need to learn how Congress speaks for the people. As President, I intend to listen. But I also intend to listen to the people themselvesall the peopleas I promised last Friday. I want to be sure that we are all tuned in to the real voice of America.
