I don’t know of many people who go visit family on their honeymoon, but my husband and I did just that.
We met in college, where he was staying at the dorms and I was living with my parents.
By the third year, we had fallen in love. He wanted to take me home to get to know his parents, but I was still taking classes through the summer. He promised his family we would come to Waldorf, MD for our honeymoon. I wanted to see Baltimore, which wasn’t too far from his family home of Waldorf, MD. While in Waldorf, MD, my husband wanted to go to Patuxent Brewing Company. He said his father used to work there, and he had a lot of wonderful memories of his father, who had passed away right before we got married. My husband asked if I wanted to go along, but I wanted to stay home with his mom and sisters. He and his brother headed out while we sat home. I loved his family, and it was nice spending the summer with them. It wasn’t exactly a honeymoon, but we were enjoying ourselves. There were several rainy days that kept us all inside, but the warmth of the summer was nice. When we went to Baltimore, the entire family joined us, but we stayed overnight when they went home. We planned on doing some sightseeing, but it was pouring and cold. We stayed in the hotel all day and night, relaxing in the pleasant heat of their HVAC. I think we’ll be returning to Waldorf, MD, often.
