Four months is longer than some marriages last.

A 4 month honeymoon!?!  With no AE?  Gulp!  What a brave soul.  I enjoyed a 2 week break from my PBEMs, but 4 months?

Have a great time.

Congrats Speedy!

4 months? Are you independently wealthy? Or is it to make up for future WitPAE time?

Congratulations and wishes for a long and happy marriage...

From the Notebooks of Lazarus Long

Another ingredient for a happy marriage: budget the luxuries first!

And still another -- See to it that she has her own desk -- then keep your hands off it!

And another -- in a family argument, if it turns out you are right -- apologize at once!

Formal courtesy between husband and wife is even more important than it is between strangers.

Don't try to have the last word. You might get it.

No kidding. In Hollywood 4 months is the Golden Anniversary celebration....probably at a restaurant on Melrose.

Yes..was thinking that too. If he can get wi-fi in the hotel room he could turn on the shower and lock himself in the bathroom...but I suppose it is bad form to lock the bathroom door during one's honeymoon.

Not at all. I've been married 27 years, and have found some things are best left mysteries.

A lockable water closet perhaps...but what about the shower?

Thanks a lot guys

Some useful advice here...well....except trying to play AE whilst on honeymoon. No AE, WitE or any of the latest PS3 highlights like Skyrim for me until middle of January. Although, something I haven't thought of, I can imagine 4 months without AE or WitE will be weird. This will be the longest break I've had from gaming since I started playing computer games when I was 8!

You are boldly going where no AE'er has gone before... Just don't make it a five year mission!

Wow... a four month honeymoon??!!  Obviously Becky has made it her mission to retrain Steven during the honeymoon from the habitual practice that earned him the nickname "Speedy"...

Congratulations, Steve and I hope you truly enjoy yourselves on this epic trip!

Cavet --- This time honored practice cannot be used in Combination with clicking the mouse and staring at a current orders screen of AE. A system crash may otherwise occur. (usually caused by a hammer impacting the monitor)

Hi all,

ORIGINAL: Speedy

Thanks a lot guys. Much appreciated

Very kind of you Faber....hard to believe we've been at each others throats WiTP style for years now! Sheesh longer than I've known my soon to be wife!

tocaff - she knows about AE and WitE....well she has heard of them but has no idea what they are in any detail and "why on earth I get pleasure and escapism from moving those silly counters around"

As for our Honeymoon we're off to Aus, NZ and Fiji for 4 months which should be great


Congrats Steven!



BTW, 4 months of honeymooning should not stop you from playing WitP-AE and testing WitE...
