Honeymoon is a vacation taken by newlyweds immediately after their wedding and those that postponed their honeymoon travel due to unavoidable circumstances, to celebrate their marriage. Within that free time frame, honeymoons are often celebrated in destinations considered exotic and romantic.

What really happens on Honeymoon?
