If you were born after 1990, the song "Your kiss is on my list" likely foreign to you.
Today, it's a setup for an important question: Is your spouse's kiss on your list?
Researchers suggest that kissing is the first thing to disappear in a relationship that is growing cold.
Can you relate to that from your own marriage?
Kissing is emotional.
It relays the message that your heart is linked to the person you're kissing.
I'm about to "go there" so stop reading if you're easily offended.
- Prostitutes don't kiss their clients.
- There's little-to-no kissing in porn.
- Hookups are for sex, not kissing + sex.
You see, it's possible for there to be sex without emotional intimacy.
A 2007 study suggested that "Males tended to kiss as a means to an end—to gain sexual favors or to reconcile. In contrast, females kiss to establish and monitor the status of their relationship, and to assess and periodically update the level of commitment on the part of a partner.”∆
If kissing has disappeared from your marriage, it's like a warning light in your car letting you know there's a problem that needs attention before something worse occurs.
Don't ignore the light.
We offer coaching and are happy to help.
