    Default Kids On Honeymoons - Yes or No

    Pretty much what the heading says.

    Would you take your children on your honeymoon and make it a family holiday or would you (if you could) organise a way to go just your new hubby and you?

    Just curious.

    Nup. I'd book a kid free break and go and relax. Assuming there were no babies involved.

    We had a great time on our honeymoon and I can't imagine doing all the drives etc we did if we had had kids then. Plus, more flights etc makes it very $$$!

    We took DS on our honeymoon. He was 12 months at the time and had never spent a night away from us.
    If I had my time again, I would do the same again.
    We had 5 nights at the Sea Temple in Palm Cove. It was amazing.
    And, it's much easier to get a table at 530pm than it is at 8!

    Depends on the ages of the kids, if I had anyone to look after them and how I felt they would cope without me.

    I would definitely bring a breastfed baby or toddler.

    I would never ever bring kids on a honeymoon.

    I just adore family holidays, but no, I wouldn't bring kids on a honeymoon. It is very important for parents to have time without the kids.
    There's plenty of other time for family time IMO!

    Im not sure. We are in the process of beginning to plan our wedding and we are undecided if the children will come on our honeymoon. They will be 7 and 4.5 at the time.
    We get a lot of couple time, we book random nights away as a couple a few times a year, have date night every few weeks so aren't lacking in us time as such.
    Maybe a family holiday would work for us.

    No I wouldn't, only because my Sister did on hers with the intention of having a honeymoon sans kids down the track, but life has gotten in the way and she still hasn't had one and regrets it now.
