    newlywed = a person recently merried

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am on the right trach by interpretation of the word in bold in the following excerpt from an entertainment news?

    The 43-year-old screenwriter, who also penned the film "Beowulf," is accused of driving drunk when he crashed his Mercedes sedan into a telephone pole, seriously injuring his wife Gretchen and killing his 34-year-old passenger Andreas Zini, an Italian newlywed who was visiting the Avarys with his bride while on their honeymoon.

    newlywed = bridegroom, newly-married man, a person recently married

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Yes, a newlywed is a person who has only recently gotten married. In some cultures, a person is considered to be a "newlywed" until their one year anniversary.
