Word and Phrase Origins

Where does the word honeymoon come from?

The term 'honeymoon' first originated in Babylon, about 4,000 years ago. Honeymoon came into use for the month after a wedding, when the bride's father would give the groom all the mead he wanted. Mead is actually a honey beer, and being so, the Babylon's calendar was a lunar calender, which is based off the moon. They then started to call that month, the 'honey month', which we now have adapted to be honeymoon.

Should you book airfare with your cruise package?

If you don't mind showing up a little early you can certainly save some money. Don't cut it close though, if the plane is late you loose out on the cruise. If you use THEIR airfare they'll make sure you get to the ship if you're late. Fly out a couple days early and enjoy the scenery then you get the best of cheap airfare and enjoying the scenery. Redbeard is correct, that if you elect to do airfare on your own (better price or frequent flyer miles) make sure you fly out at least a day ahead of your embarkation. This will ensure you don't miss your voyage and gives you a day to get rid of any jet lag, if applicable. Booking through the cruise line, you will generally benefit from their wholesale and packaged pricing and protected if you flights are delayed or cancelled. The cruise line is then responsible to get you alternate flights or fly you to the next port to catch up with the vessel in extreme situations. Happy Sailing!

What is the average length of a honeymoon phase?

Just as long as they deem necessary in order to make sure that they are not going to lose their grip on the object of their control! They're tricky!! In my experience my monster could turn it on and off like a light switch. It was entirely his choice and whim. The shortest period was 1 whole day and the longest was 5 weeks, but in 4 years there were only 5 distinguishable "honeymoon phases".

AnswerIt depends, but yes, it's generally however long they see fit to keep you in their grip. This can varry depending on how long you've been in the relationship, and how submissive you are/abusive he/she is. There really is no set length.

Depends on how much resistance to their control they percieve and whether they think you are ready for a punishment. But they want to make sure you will stick around. Thier timing is to catch you off guard. They also have to work hard at being nice, it takes real effort as their internal dialogue screams out to them to do something mean.

I agree with what is said above. IT depends on the person you are dating. I think when you find the right one, it should never end. You should always be excited to see the person and spend time with them. The key is to always respect your partner and treat them like they mean the world to you. If you fell like you are taking them for granted, just think of how you would feel without them in your life. The honeymoon phase should never end - that is how you can tell if your partner is the one for you. It shouldn't just be comfortable with your partner, it should be GREAT!! You should adore spending time together - I have finally found that. People don't know that it is possible because they haven't experienced it before and think their 'average/good' relationship is the best it is gonna get. Don't settle for less...relationships should be AMAZING all the time. Hope that helps

When is the honeymoon phase of a relationship over and what does the man do next?

I'm impressed with you as you tapped into "the honeymoon is over" so you're one smart, caring guy. It's normal! Don't EVER think this means that life is over between you and be mature enough to work with your girlfriend or wife to spice up your lives. People make the biggest mistake by thinking that sex is #1, but in reality it isn't at all. If you are in tune with each other (takes practice) then sex comes along naturally, not the other way around. When we meet that person we truly love the fireworks go off and you can feel like you're walking on a cloud and the world is magical. Colors, smells, and even your own persona changes into magic. Dating is wonderful, but, after a few years of going together it can become stale very easily if you don't work on it and it's only because you are becoming very familiar with each other. There is none of that magic of "the chase" of landing that person. It happens to most of us and is quite normal. Getting married is a big adjustment because you have to get use to each other's habits and learning how to share things with each other. Then along come children and that's a full time job, not to mention even harder if the mother has to work. Both partners can be tired in the evening and sex begins to slide down to the bottom of the list. Make your weekends count! Pick a day you both spend with each other or the kids and have a blast. Then on a Saturday night go clubbing, have a romantic dinner or go for a simple walk on the beach and watch the sun set. It's about the quality of time you put into each other and it's nice to keep reminding each other you still love that person. Women love to be appreciated not only for their appearance, but the fact they are smart and do have a brain and there is much more to them than being attractive, having babies, etc. Give her some flowers once in awhile or a piece of jewelry (something special and it doesn't have to super expensive.) Sometimes just cuddling up together (without mauling her) and listening to music is a wonderful romantic way to spend an evening. Sex doesn't always have to enter into it. The thing to do is not to always be together every minute of every day. Each of you should have other interests or see friends. Sometimes dating with another couple is more fun too and keeps you on your toes. Nothing really has changed between you and the more you are together the closer mentally and soul-wise you should become. We learn from each other and we learn each other's dislikes, our strengths and weakness' and a couple (young or older) should tap into the weakness' of the other person and just be there to pick up the pieces. Instead of going to a movie every Saturday night or meeting the same old friends every weekend spread yourself out. Decide on something else that you are both interested in. Don't be afraid to miss the odd weekend with each other because "absence DOES make the heart grow fonder." Sometimes we just don't know how good we have it until it's not there anymore. Often people with kids will say, "Well, we can't afford a baby-sitter." Not true. If you work on it either a member of the family will baby-sit for you, or you can do a "trade-off" with friends and no money exchanges hands. I don't have children, but I have baby-sat many times to give our friends a break from their kids and never charged them and I enjoyed the kids. Good luck Marcy

Italian Language and Culture

What are the best places to go in Italy?

You should include Venice; it has been in trouble for decades from pollution, and now rising waters are a constant threat. You want to see it while the world still has it to enjoy.


Venice is a must-see city. It has a rich history, breathtaking architecture, and a lovely culture. It is a unique city, built on islands with canals and around 400 bridges. There is no city on earth quite like it. Costume shops sell wares for Carnevale and glass makers create famous Venetian glass on the island of Murano. Venice is also the hometown of Vivaldi, and where his birthday is celebrated with concerts in the month of May. The Grand Canal is a pleasure to see, as are the charming labyrinthine neighborhoods. Napoleon called San Marco Square the greatest drawing room of Europe. It is lined with famous and historic cafes, peppered with pigeons, and filled with live music playing from within the colonnades at the cafes. Also a fun city for shopping, on the Rialto Bridge and elsewhere. Do avoid it in the fall. That's supposed to be flood season, I believe.

Tuscany is also a delightful place to visit. Many "tours" offer packages for Venice, Rome, Florence. But in Tuscany, there is so much more to see than just Florence. Florence, heart of the Renaissance, is culturally a very important city, though not very impressive architecturally. However, Michelangelo's David is here (Accademia Gallery), as well as other priceless works displayed at the Uffizi Gallery, including works by Botticelli, Michelangelo and Raphael. The surrounding countryside is glorious. Rolling hills, with cypress lined roads leading to farms and villages. Olive groves on the hills give way to vineyards on the slopes. You can stay on a farm ("agriturismo") with all kinds of B&B type accommodations possible. San Gimignano and Siena are beautiful hilltop medieval towns to visit, filled with rustic architecture, beautiful pottery and wines, festivals and surrounded by breathtaking views of the countryside. Siena is home to a popular horse race (Palio) in the summers, and the districts of the town are decorated with different animal mascots and colorful flags.

Nearby in the region of Umbria (where fabulous olive oil is made), is the town of Assisi, home of St. Francis, as well as other charming medieval villages, including Perugia (known for chocolate).

A visit to Italy should always include a visit to Rome, a city steeped in thousands of years of history and the capital of a vast ancient empire. Here you can visit the Vatican, home of the Catholic Church, and one of (if not the) biggest museums in the world, filled with priceless art and antiquities, including Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel. From outdoor markets and Bernini fountains, to ruins and parks, the Spanish Steps, the ancient bathhouse of Calcalla, Trevi Fountain, first class shopping, the list of things to see in Rome seems endless. And the food in Rome is fabulous, whether you eat in a neighborhood restaurant or grab some food at a tavola calda ("hot table"--an informal place for prepared food, like a deli) or pizzeria. (recommended films: "Roman Holiday," "Only You," "Tea with Mussolini.")

There are so many wonderful places to visit in Italy, but this is a start. Remember to sample gelati (ice cream) and wonderful offerings at a salumeria (like a deli). And if you're driving on the Autostrada and see a rest stop that features dining (crossed fork and knife symbol??) STOP if you're hungry. You will be pleasantly surprised at the wonderful and inexpensive food you can get. Some nice souvenir shopping sometimes too, depending on the region. I get depressed coming home to our highways and chain fast food restaurants at rest stops. Hope this helps!

Is there anything you can take to prevent your period if you are going on your honeymoon in July and don't have a gyno appointment to get the pill until June 20?

Get Norethisterone - this is a progesterone pill that prevents the progesterone drop that triggers menstruation. You take this three times per day from three days before your period is due and continue to take the pills until you want your period to start, it normally starts within 24 hours.

You don't have to prevent or delay your period, just menstruate as normal. There's nothing that you can't do on your period and some things are even better on your period, such as sex! Get a menstrual cup so you can go all day without needing to worry about changing or leaking and you can enjoy things like swimming, then use softcups, diaphragms, or soft tampons for mess-free sex.
