Any community members that are married, I thought it would be curious to see where you all went on your honeymoons. Lately I have been seeing a lot of variety from friends I know, etc.

Personally I went to Riviera Maya, Mexico and loved it.

My wife and I road tripped from Georgia through the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia, up through Pennsylvania to Vermont. After Vermont, drove up to Maine, then back through NY and and PA, once more to VA and back home to GA.

Best trip I've ever been on.

Riviera Maya as well. All-inclusive resort. We did a couple excursions and had a blast.

I'm not married, but we JUST fired a lazy asshole today who's wedding is two days away... he's going to Mexico, I hope he enjoys the feeling that he doesn't have a job to go back to when he gets back.

@FraggingRights: How long did it take you? Me and my girlfriend are planning a similar road trip for the summer.

My wife and I went to Wilmington, North Carolina. Poor people from North Carolina go to the beach for their honeymoon.

#7 Posted by FraggingRights (108 posts) -

@SSully: I can't remember exactly. I think it was over the coarse of eleven days. A lot of driving. You have to REALLY love road trips. That being said, the New England area in October is amazing. Especially accompanied by all the awesome maple syrups and local cheeses of VT.

@TooWalrus: What did he do to get fired?

He's in his 40s and he's completely unmotivated to work hard as a pizza delivery boy. He's been with us for almost 2 years, and he's got a habit of doing next to nothing. He's been caught pretending to take orders on the phone so he doesn't have to do dishes, he's super-sloppy in everything he does (like he refuses to dry the floor after he mops it, he just leaves it drenched so that our footprints make it look worse than it did before), and we were pretty much just looking for a reason to get rid of him. One of the drivers drove by his girlfriends house on the way to a delivery, and saw Mario (we call him Mario because he's got a big bushy mustache) sitting on the porch drinking. This was during the dinner rush on Friday (which was actually the busiest day of the year so far). Chilling with your fiance during the rush so you don't have to work is NOT cool, and was the final straw- he got into a shouting match with Big Boss (I guess there's a lot of video-game related nicknames at my store) and was fired.

Genuinely don't know whether you're serious or not.

He can't be serious, you can't get divorced 3 or 4 times without getting married.

Got married last Oct and we went to St. Lucia. Stayed at an all inclusive and it was fantastic. I'd recommend that trip to anyone.

#16 Posted by Gnomicidal (124 posts) -

@BongChilla: Know a few people who went there and loved it.

Plan on trying it out some day here.

#17 Posted by the_OFFICIAL_jAPanese_teaBAG (4311 posts) -
@TooWalrus: Ok I thought Mario was getting fired just because he was going on a honeymoon...  The name suited him as well because he worked at an italian restaurant.  Ok that didnt really make sense but you get the point
#18 Posted by mfpantst (2651 posts) -

To your mom's house. For a threesome.

Not really. I've been on two. One to Puerto Vallarta, one on a cruise on the current biggest passenger ship in the world, the Allure.

#19 Posted by MikeinSC (1079 posts) -

Family friend has an awesome cabin in the NC mountains. Amazing locale.

#20 Posted by SSully (4625 posts) -

@FraggingRights: It sounds like a great time, thanks for the feedback!

#21 Posted by iam3green (14368 posts) -

not married, but i would say go on a cruise. i went on one in june, and i enjoyed it a lot.

#22 Posted by Lotan (237 posts) -

We went to Vegas, which while it was not exactly original, it was pretty awesome.

#23 Posted by TheDudeOfGaming (6116 posts) -

The question obviously being, why the hell would you want to get married? You know you'll cheat on her at some point, and she'll probably find out, which means she'll take half of your worldly possessions. Even if you don't, half of marriages end in divorce which means you still lose half of everything you own.
When the fuck did i become such a cynic?

We went to my basement, she never came back out alive.

We went on a Disney Cruise.

Four days in the parks three days on the sea.

It was amazing.

#27 Posted by hwy_61 (1029 posts) -

Me and the wife decided to not have a big wedding/honeymoon. Instead we used all that money to stay at The Drake and go shopping in downtown Chicago. It was awesome.

#28 Posted by Jonnyflash80 (523 posts) -

My wife and I went to Prince Edward Island on Canada's east coast and spent a week on the beach there. We were poor university students at the time and PEI was only a few hours drive away. It's almost time for a second honeymoon soon and we would really like to go to Sandals resort in Jamaica.

I want to bring my future wife to the whiskey offices and fuck her on the table in the podcast room. In full view.

#30 Posted by Twisted_Scot (1193 posts) -

Went to Hawaii.  Honolulu & Maui. (and technically Denver Airport which I found to be a very nice Airport indeed). Very nice but If im ever forced to spend that much time on a crappy little plane like that again I will shoot myself.

But would you let the team take turns to fuck your wife though?

I don't see why not. Except for Klepeck. He can sit in the corner and crank it if he wants.

Vermont syrup is AWESOME! Why is it so good?!

#33 Posted by Fizzy (379 posts) -

If I ever get married I would show her all my animals in Viva Pinata. Then we would play Kinectimals :D

After that it's back to Gears of War 4!

NYC, last October. Saw the opening of Pee Wee's Broadway show, Underworld live, museums, Dave Letterman taping, etc. Ruled.

#35 Posted by Apocralyptic (233 posts) -

Vegas, baby! (It was my wife's idea, even!) Great place to go if (1) you can't afford an international trip, (2) you only have a few days vacation available for a honeymoon, and (3) you're the sort of person who would rather do stuff than sit around and relax.

How was Underworld live?

@Fizzy: Holy moly, dude. I'm a pretty casual fan (wife is a major one), but it was transcendent. Just unreal.

@Gnomicidal: We went to the Riviera too! Stayed at the Spa Palace, highly recommend it.

#40 Posted by Gnomicidal (124 posts) -

We are heading back to Riviera Maya for our second anniversary. Hopefully checking out Cozumel and doing a lot more snorkeling this time!

#41 Posted by AiurFlux (921 posts) -

Venice. For our 1 year anniversary this year we went to Japan (Osaka to Tokyo). For our 2 year we already have an idea of a trip to Cairo, but we have to see the political situation there. If not Cairo then probably Vegas. Might as well travel now in the prime of our lives seeing as when we have a family it won't be possible and when we get old it'll just be for sightseeing. Because eventually it will all be about work and family. Family and work. Nothing else. And given our professions the hours are going to be unforgiving.

As a side note though Japan is a fucking beautiful country. I definitely want to go back and in particular to Hokkaido. So if people haven't gone try to give it a shot at least once.

Hey, look at it this way. Even if you don't get to go to Cairo for your anniversary, Las Vegas still has a lot of Egypt.

The Disney cruises sounds so awesome. My stepsister considered that for her honeymoon. She and her husband decided on Hawaii. They got divorced afterwards. Shoulda gone with Disney, I guess. Before anybody gets too upset about my joke there, they make light of it themselves, and have been remarried for a few years now.

#43 Posted by MightyDuck (1620 posts) -

@elsuperdonut: I've always been curious what that place is like after driving by it countless times on Lake Shore Drive.

My fiance and I are in the process of planning are wedding currently. We haven't even started thinking about honey moons. Although, it sounds like there are some solid ideas in this topic.

#44 Posted by hwy_61 (1029 posts) -

@GetWhatYagive: Classy is the best way to describe The Drake. Each room has a book filled with pictures of Chicago in the 20s. We loved it.

Excalibur in Las Vegas was our "base of operations." We toured the entire city and really enjoyed everything it had to offer.
