OK, that sounds serious, but let me explain.
You want your partner to be focused on you when you talk to them, to feel like you’re the centre of their world and you hope they feel the same way about you in return. Nothing ruins this more than sharing something important with your partner while they’re staring at their phone and uttering the odd word at you as a half-hearted response.
It’s something we all do without really realising it, but it hurts to be on the receiving end of it.
When your partner attends to their phone instead of you it feels like rejection, it feels like other things are more important than you and that is not a good way to start your next chapter together.
So, talk to each other and set some boundaries for your honeymoon that will last long into your marriage together. Some good examples include:
- Keeping phones out of the bedroom (or at least out of reach from the bed)
- Leave your phone in your pocket/bag during mealtimes and conversations with your partner
- Only reach for your phone when you have no other choice – like taking honeymoon photos
- Agree to times when you can check your phone and how long for (and stick to it!)
Remember that you took great care in booking this honeymoon to have a once in a lifetime experience together. Don’t waste your precious time staring at your phone, share it with your partner and make some life-lasting memories together instead. That’s the true value of an unplugged honeymoon.
