WASHINGTON – What happened to the romance, togetherness and promises of forever- after? Y’know, the wedded bliss.
Seems the “honeymoon phase” may be a myth.
A new Australian study shows couples in their first year of marriage are more unhappy than couples that have been together for decades.
“Couples build up to the wedding day as the best day of their life, and then find reality biting as they tote up their wedding bills and get back to work after the honeymoon,” lead author Melissa Weinberg of Deakin University tells The New Zealand Herald.
