Also known as the honeymoon, but I just can't find that notion applicable.
We already got away from any "military expedition or public duty", it will continue to be sweet beyond the first month and the "woman's frail health" was certainly not consulted about when planning the voyage... although the frailty of her knee, twisted out of shape while jumping waves on the night of the wedding, did keep us from climbing Lombok's Mt Rinjani.
The voyage that followed our Sweet Nothings, spoken into a microphone to an audience of about thirty, was more like any other trip - partially planned, partially unscripted, reasonably rough, and a bit luxurious. The only difference here was the time we got to spend with our parents, après wedding - navigating the narrow winding highways of Bali, cooling off in another hotel's pool, getting stuck on a dead-end gravel road after dark, and even watching a show, together!
So, calling it a "honeymoon" would be really misleading. And neither honey, nor moon were hurt in the process.
