who has been married for a number of years should take a second
honeymoon. Why? Because in the hustle and bustle of today’s
world we often don’t make time for one of the main ingredients
of a successful marriage; taking time for each other.

is to renew your wedding vows before setting off on your second
honeymoon. First honeymoons are often over-shadowed by the stress
