May is Caffection month

June is marriage month. This is based on an ancient impulse that helped the species survive. Marriage in June produced offspring nine months later, in March or April when the weather turned more temperate, thus giving our young a chance to grow and strengthen before their first winter chill.
Just so, May is caffection month. A June marriage would then be eleven months old. Having survived a summer of exciting discovery, a fall of gentle adjustment, and a winter of settling in, a new couple could have a pre-anniversary in May to consider their new union. In May they could review their first year of strengthening and growing together, and discover that what they have is called caffection.
