Everyone has stories about their awkward first date, but couples who have been together for a while may have some really great stories about their first vacation together. Once they have made a commitment, couples tend to believe they should experience everything life has to offer. They decide a vacation is a good way to get out of their normal lives and have some fun together, and the problems may begin before they ever leave home.

Going away on vacation is a major change for anyone, and a couple that has just made a commitment to combine their lives will find this type of change can be exceedingly awkward. Their travel plans may be derailed by a plane stuck on the tarmac for hours, or they might arrive at their destination to find their reservation has been lost. If a couple can survive everything that goes wrong with their first vacation together with a good sense of humor, it is a good indication their relationship will last.
