Traditionally, a honeymoon lasts about a fortnight. Newlyweds bask in the joy of marriage for a couple of weeks before resuming their regular schedules. However, a new trend is taking over, and we think it's definitely the way to go. Couples are deciding to spend the first several months, sometimes up to a year, after marriage on the road. This is called the mega-moon.
One such mega-mooning couple explained how they decided to spend their "just married" months overseas: "The idea of an around-the-world trip was seeded when we met in college. One day about two years ago we started saving. We were doing well in our careers and were confident we could get jobs when we returned," they told New York Magazine.
While fulfilling your globe-trotting dreams with the love of your life may sound like a magical whirlwind, it's important to plan ahead and know that this wandering lifestyle is right for you. Scroll through for tips on how to plan the ultimate mega-moon.
