Picture the scene. You’ve just got married, with all the highs and lows that involves. And then you jet off somewhere exotic – for a month.

Frankly, it’s hard enough to maintain the honeymooner’s glow for a fortnight without choosing to live in each other’s pockets for four weeks.

There’s a lot people don’t tell you about getting married – like why it’s suddenly your job to buy all the presents, or why becoming a wife gives you a degree in reverse psychology.

But some things are common sense. It’s unsightly to row when you’re walking down a white sandy beach. So why take the risk?
