# 02333 :  Is honeymoon right in the sight of God.

 Hi all,

I would like to know if honeymoon is right according to principles of God. Kindly reply with verses from Bible that support your view.

Is this a serious question?  really? I weep if this is a serious question.

Are vacations "right according to the pricinples of God"?  Is leisure "right according to the principles of God"? Is pleasure "right according to the principles of God?"

If someone is saying something, let's call it X, goes against the principles of scripture, then the onus is on them to show that there is, in fact, conflict with X and the Scriptures.

A honeymoon is a chance for a newly wedded couple to get away, to get to know each other, to enjoy each other intimitely and physically.  Let them!

It's not written about honeymoon in Bible. Honeymoon is good. Go with it.

Scripture indicates we should take a year off, and these days we take only a week or upto a month at the max right?

Deuteronomy 24:5 “When a man is newly wed, he need not go out on a military expedition, nor shall any public duty be imposed on him. He shall be exempt for one year for the sake of his family, to bring joy to the wife he has married

 Dear Avoild_legalism,

I posted this because somebody asked me about this and I want to give them the correct answer. I thought this might be the right place to get the correct answer.
