To spring a surprise on your spouse is bad enough. To spring a surprise on your spouse regarding your honeymoon destination is nothing short of calamitous. Like the one-handed clap, one-person decision-making in couplehood should not exist. Alas, here it did. The new wife reportedly went through the motions, returned with her new husband from the non-beaches and non-daiquiris of Ayodhya, and has sought to be his ex-wife. We, elders, standing on the side quietly say: better after honeymoon than never.
