“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”
‭‭Genesis‬ ‭2:24‬ ‭ASV‬‬

Many people believe that they will feel “complete” once they have found their soulmate. This “only one” person is “meant to be” and will satisfy all their desires.
Some psychologists state that believing that a soulmate exists specifically for a person is an unrealistic expectation.
Certainly our Creator has a plan and He certainly creates souls that mate.

Honeymoon

The origin of honeymoons date back to the 5th century when newlywed couples would drink mead, a honey-based alcohol, after their first “moon” together as a married couple. The mead was a gift from guests, and it was believed to have aphrodisiac properties to help with conception.

Newlyweds going away together on a holiday trip originated in early 19th century England. Upper-class couples would take a “bridal tour”, sometimes accompanied by friends or family, to visit relatives who had not been able to attend the wedding.The practice soon spread to the European continent.
Honeymoons in the modern sense—a holiday voyage undertaken by the couple—became widespread during the Belle Époque, as one of the first instances of modern mass tourism.
The average honeymoon costs about $4000.00.

Tomorrow (12/22/2018), Sheridan and I will be married. Our story began when she, a news reporter, interviewed me as the first Radiation Oncologist in a new Cancer Center. Soon thereafter, we serendipitously met at a fundraiser and talked all day. Somehow we did not start dating then because we misread each other’s interest. Our paths diverged for 9 years, and then we reconnected on LinkedIn and our journey together began 2 years ago. We have traveled the World and shared so many precious memories already; but, God willing, we are just beginning. Yesterday, my sister informed me that my maternal grandparents were married on December 22, 1925–that and the Full Moon tomorrow—good signs🙏
