    How long can I call myself a Newlywed????

    I just noticed it is in my signature. And I do not want to change it. I am still a newlywed!

    May 2010, a friend's son got married... And someone at the reception asked how long husband and I had been married.

    When we told her, "almost 5 years", she was amazed. She told us we still acted like newlyweds. (Of course, we were getting things back together after almost splitting up - but so what.)

    SO - however long you want!!!

    I graduated in 1968 - one of my highschool friends refers to his wife, never as his wife, but his bride - I guess they still qualify for newly weds after all these years..

    As long as you feel newly wedded. We are close to 30yrs. I'd say the first 26yrs we were newly weds. Now we are working on midlife resurgence. LOL. We are curious what the next 30 yrs will be like. : )

    You can be newlyweds as long as you perform as newlyweds I would If you want to send him to the doghouse, you can take it out of your siggy!

    As long as you keep your vows, and remember them. However in my humble opinion to tell the outside world "We are newly weds." When in fact you have been married over a year; may spark some conversation and confusion as to a time-line. At that point I think it would be your call as a married couple to explain your reasoning for continuing to tell the world you feel like you're newly-wed every morning when you wake up, face each other with love, trust, passion and a renewed sense of togetherness that bonds you together each day forward just as it did that same day you said your vows. Thus making you feel newly wed each day of your lives together.

    Then perhaps you could say "We feel Newly wed - every day of our lives together and blessed every moment for having each other." or something like that.

    Whatever floats the USS Wend. ;-) - Happy couples tend to perpetuate that feeling around them and either people are going to understand or not. Those that do? Will want to be like your example - those that don't weren't meant to be together anyway and would never understand sadly. Again - in my humble opinion.

    At some point "newly-wed" doesn't quite fit... but nobody ever said there was a limit on how long the honeymoon is... So, you're definitely still on your honey-moon.

    On "The Newlywed Game," they only took couples who were married less than one year so that's what I always thought it was.
