Experts have spent countless hours calculating the honeymoon stage in a relationship lasts somewhere between 24 hours and seven years. But what's the honeymoon period on a car? LeaseTrader.com polled almost 2500 men and women and received some humorous feedback. It set up the survey to ask men and women how long they loved their car, and when they finally realized the honeymoon period was over. For men, the average was four months until they started parking close to other cars (33%) and began transporting sports equipment in the backseat (22%). The first rules women started breaking are letting their spouse drive their car (39%) and starting to car pool other kids (24%) for the first time. "Generally, drivers leasing a car have a shorter honeymoon period," said Sergio Stiberman, CEO of LeaseTrader.com. "Every lease driver goes through this stage and LeaseTrader.com helps them get out of their unwanted lease to start a new honeymoon with a car of their choice."

The honeymoon period is over when the following occurs: Men:
Parks around other cars (33%)
Starts transporting sports equipment (22%)
Less frequent car cleaning (17%)
High-payment starts to bother them (12%)
Stops using gas mileage button (7%)
No more fights over who drives during long trips (3%)
Other (6%)
