Study: After 2 1/2 Years Of Being Married The Honeymoon is Over
It's official, the bloom wears off the old marriage rose after two-and-a-half years!
That's what they're trying to tell us out of New York University anyway.
According to a recent study conducted there, the honeymoon period ends 30 months into marriage.
So what are we suppose to garner from that? All the marital bliss is immediately sucked out of your relationship after just two-and-a-half years of being married?
No, that's not the case. At least not for everyone.
For most people, when they say the honeymoon is over, it generally means the passion in the marriage cools down just a little bit. However, they're still very happy and look forward to settling into the rest of their lives.
But there are a few people out there, 14% of men and 10% of women who view it as a marital death sentence.
Evidently these are the people who missed the "till death do us part," part. They woke up one day and realized they've married a raging, nagging, bitch, who loves to play the blame game all day. Or a fat, lazy slob, whose idea of a good time is sitting on the couch eating bags of Snickers bars and watching episodes of Son's of Gun's until they fall asleep in their recliner.
For those poor people, that's when they say their marriage took the exit ramp to Depressionville. Things started to fall apart and they became extremely unhappy with their spouse and their marriage.
In other words, they become a marriage counselor's wet dream!
