Marriage suits just fine.

“We’re just so in love,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s issue. While enjoying a wildly romantic honeymoon getaway with husband Dillon King in Mexico’s party capital of Cancén, the former 19 Kids and Counting star shared just how great things are going.

“This trip has definitely brought us closer together,” says Amy. “Before we had boundaries in our relationship. Now we wake up next to each other every day! It’s been awesome.”

Between fiestas, tequila tastings and catching live shows at the theater, the two – who are enjoying a reprieve from her ultra-conservative family’s ongoing drama back in the States – are making time to lounge about their resort’s large private terrace and just be alone.

“Some days we’re in the cabana bed all day,” says Amy. “It’s nice to just relax and focus on our marriage.”
