Now, compare answers. If it turns out that you have more than half in common, you're already honeymoon compatible — and the rest is just a matter of working out the details. If not, let the compromises begin.
Even if it turns out that you have to give up some things you'd hoped to do on your honeymoon, keep the trip in perspective. It's important to remember that regardless of where you spend your honeymoon, it's bound to be fun with the one you love.
