Cupid's Pulse Article: Zara Phillips Talks Babies and Skipped HoneymoonCupid's Pulse Article: Zara Phillips Talks Babies and Skipped Honeymoon

It’s amazing that Zara Phillips could even fit a wedding into her busy schedule when she says she and her rugby player husband don’t have time for a honeymoon.  People reports that the equestrian royal, 30, and her new hubby Mike Tindall, 32, haven’t had a moment to rest since their wedding in July.  “There are always other competitions and other dreams that you want to achieve.  Winning Badminton and Burghley, the Olympics, another World Championship,” said Phillips, daughter of Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips.  Focusing on their careers also means putting off having children.  “I’d love to have kids, but not at the moment.  You know — I’m just happy competing and putting the work in.”

What are the advantages of delaying your honeymoon?

Cupid’s Advice:

While the majority of couples who have honeymoons choose to do so right after their wedding, there are some advantages to putting it off.  Cupid has some thoughts:

1. Save money: You’ve probably gone nearly broke financing your wedding or cleaned your parents out of cash.  If you wait a little while, you can earn some extra money to make your honeymoon extra special.

2. Take a breath: After the wedding festivities are over, traveling (even to an exotic destination) creates extra stress.  When you want a real break, just chill out at home and save the trip for later.

3. Wait for the weather: If you got married in the summer, but really want to go to Aspen for your honeymoon, there’s no harm in waiting a few months until the weather suits you.
