Happy couple

Every relationship goes through the same stages and there is always a stage called the 'honeymoon phase'.

According to experts, the honeymoon phase of a relationship lasts about two years, this stage tends to give couples a false perception of how the relationship is supposed to last forever but in reality, this phase  ends as quickly as it began.

Relationship experts say it's okay for the honeymoon phase to end adding that relationships could even get better after it.

Julia Austin of Madame Noire gives 5 reasons why these phase ends quickly:

During the honeymoon: During the honeymoon phase, you’ll choose sex over food/more sleep/a job interview/going out with friends and just about anything. You’re constantly sleep deprived and hungry but you’re riding the high of looking forward to more sex.

During the honeymoon: During the honeymoon phase, your self-esteem and sense of self worth depended almost entirely on how your partner treated you/what your partner said to you/how often you saw your partner etc. Your ego could deflate like a popped balloon if your partner had to cancel on you. That being said, your ego could burst like fireworks if your partner surprised you at work!

During the honeymoon: In the first couple years of your relationship, your friends and family ask you often how things are going in your relationship. You almost feel like a celebrity couple—everybody has eyes on you and wants to see what happens!

During the honeymoon: During the honeymoon you probably don’t live together yet. So part of the allure of the other person is the waiting period between dates.

During the honeymoon: During the honeymoon you’re always planning fun, cool activities together. You want to adventure! You get to know each other by being in dynamic environments. You’re still discovering every part of the person’s personality.
