Does Your Marriage Need A Bliss Kiss?


Married for what seems like a long time? Keep the sizzle with a bliss kiss!

My husband and I have been married a long time. Physical affection is something we do well. He is not too shy to engage in PDAs—Public Displays of Affection—and I appreciate him so much for this. In 38 years though, we notice how easy it is to engage mindlessly in routine and habit. This includes the quick hello or goodbye or goodnight kiss, otherwise known as "pecking." Marital Bliss is sustained when we are intentional about the magic of physical connection. Make a decision to say no to pecking!

Next time you run out the door, stop, face your mate, let your lip to lip kiss linger long enough to remember how much there is to appreciate in a sweet, three second moment.
