So ... we're told we all go through culture shock, but I've never, ever, thought "ZOMG THIS IS ALL AMAZING" or "ZOMG THIS ALL SUX0R" upon going or returning home. So either your definition of the Honeymoon Stage is wrong, or else lots of us don't go through culture shock. What do you think?

As for my proposal, it's simple. I took "Honeymoon Stage" to mean a period of time where you're relatively frequently noticing many good things (and not what you wrote above). And since that really does happen to nearly everyone, and tells us nothing about anything, it's incredibly boring. But if people were to return home and discover /nothing good about it/, that "Missing Honeymoon Stage" would be interesting.
