So is our honeymoon doomed to eventually be over because that's life, or has anyone discovered a way to be in eternal honeymoon stage?

I have been married for 3.5 years. We've had some smallish disagreements, but every day I literally feel like I won the lottery when I turn around and see my husband next to me. I feel that our relationship is better every day and that we click in ways I never thought possible. He tells me he has never been so happy in his life and never thought he would be. We kiss and hug and are all over each other every day.
But...every time people see us and make a remark on "how cute we are together" or "how happy we look", it invariably precedes "how long have you been married?" and when I say "3 years" they say knowingly "Oh, you are still in the honeymoon stage".
Are these people onto something? I really don't want this to be over...but I can't even begin to count the amount of times I have had this conversation with different people (pretty much every person we are introduced to). Is this a thing? Is it unavoidable? If you did manage to avoid it, how did you do it? I really don't want to lose what we have!
