Honeymoon. Right, where d'you fancy? Maldives? Paris? New York? Or what about a hospital ward getting your shoulder operated on?
That's the reality for poor Kaley Cuoco, who's had to have shoulder surgery just five days after getting married.
The Big Bang Theory actor married Karl Cook in a lavish ceremony at the weekend, but rather than jetting off to a luxury resort somewhere hot, she was straight into hospital.
A selfie shared by Cuoco shows her lying in a hospital bed, arm in sling, hair a mess, looking properly miserable with her lot while her new husband grins like an idiot next to her.

Her Instagram handle is, confusingly, @normancook, which is a reference to her dog and not to Fatboy Slim.
She wrote: "When your 'honeymoon' is shoulder surgery and your husband looks just as happy lol on the road to recovery - thank you for all the love and support! Knowing @mrtankcook I'm sure he will be posting tons of hilarious gems. thank god my hair color is on point"
Sure enough, her new husband has got to work sharing some properly unflattering photos of the star.
He whacked up an Instagram photo of a very unhappy-looking Cuoco, with the [email protected] "Everyone has their own version of a newlywed glow....well @normancook yours is memorable."
He also shared a video of her conked out in the car snoring 'like a distressed walrus', presumably a result of all the medication.

He's a professional horse rider who proposed to his mrs on her birthday in November last year.
Before the surgery, he's shared a photo of the couple from their wedding, saying: "Good morning honey, I love you, and I'm sorry. I am still processing the greatest night of my life marrying the love of my life! I mean god damn that dress was amazing!"
He also posted his vows, which began with: "Kaley...I hate you the least of all people in the world." Amazing.
Her Instagram stories also show him trying and failing to put her hair in a bun, and reluctantly sitting through The Greatest Showman with her.
Let's hope she makes a speedy recovery and can hit the beach soon.
