We have always been taught that every romantic relationship goes through the honeymoon phase but then it ends and you have to move on…to something boring. We want to give you some steps to help you never get to the boring. Here's how the honeymoon phase will last forever!
In this podcast, Jon and Jess explore the question – does the honeymoon phase have to end?
To answer this age-old question, they go to the heart of the matter, fear vs. love.
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.I John 4:18
The Power of Love In Relationship
Fear stops us and shuts us down. It takes away our creativity and joy. Fear causes us to answer sharply and makes us feel like we have to constantly look over our shoulder.
Love frees and empowers us. It makes us creative and joyful. Love gives us patience for our partners so we can respect and cherish them. So if we do things in love, we have an exponentially greater chance that the honeymoon will last forever.
When an issue arises in our relationship, it's as if a mirror is put up in front of our faces to show us that there is something to do with us that we need to take care of.
When we pay attention to these, we are able to deal with the cause and allow healing to enter in. After a while, the baggage drops off of us and walls against our partners come down.
As a result, we can get back to the honeymoon stage and even better.
It is possible to get to a level even more exciting than that – the stage where you can experience explosive love.

We know and are experiencing having a marriage in which the honeymoon phase will last forever. It's all knowledge which God talks about in this verseMy people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
