6. It gives you something to look forward to, you know, apart from the whole spending the rest of your life with your soulmate thing.
7. It makes picking between two destinations easier. A few days in Paris vs a week in the Maldives? Just do both!

11. It’s the perfect opportunity to visit that city you always talked about but never quite got round to visiting.

13. Plus you get to wear your honeymoon wardrobe twice. And your OH said that tenth bikini was a waste of money, pah!
