Passionate kissing reaffirms your attachment to your spouse. Every. Single. Time.

Kissing is a means of getting two people so close together that they can’t see anything wrong with each other. – Rene Yasenek

The Mister and I are always kissing each other. We greet each other with a kiss, we say goodbye with a kiss and any moment in between! I’ll admit I didn’t realize the importance of kissing until I found out that The Mister’s love language is Physical Touch; now it has an even greater importance in our relationship!

One of the greatest things (not to mention the easiest and cheapest way!) you can do to keep that intimacy alive is to kiss on a regular basis. Kiss when you say goodbye in the morning, when you come home at night, when you go to bed and anytime in between!

Passionate kisses give way to quick pecks as jobs, children and general life intervene but it doesn’t have too! Passion can be reignited with a make out session for 10 minutes a day. That’s less time than a regular tv show and can have a HUGE impact on your relationship.

Here are some tips to get the passion back into your relationship if you find that it needs reigniting!

  • Be Intentional.
  • Be present in the moment.
  • Use your hands in different ways. Put your hands on their back, face or wrap your hands around their neck.

Now ask yourself, have I passionately kissed my spouse today? If you find your relationship turning into a roommate situation, refocus it with a kiss. Once you both commit to kissing more, you will find that your intimacy will improve. It will seem like an effort at first but it’s ALWAYS worth it.

So tell me, do you kiss your spouse passionately on a regular basis? Why or why not? Do you have a different way of showing your affection?

Next up, listening! Don’t miss it on November 12th!

  1. We kids a lot but usually quick pecks or a soft smooch. We tend not to have a full on make out session every day because then when we do it takes one of us by surprise and is a nice way of shaking things up. But we do kiss passionately on a regular basis, just not every day 🙂

  2. Love, love, love this post. What can I say? I think kissing is extremely important. In fact, if Tom didn’t like kissing, we would never have worked out, that’s how important it is.

    The other night, we were at the grocery store and I don’t know why, but it turned into one of the best grocery store trips ever. We were just sort of high on life and being absolutely ridiculous. Tom ended up saying something that was the perfect mix of adorable and hilarious so I gave him a quick, very appropriate for being out in public, kiss. A woman was nearby with her 6-8 year old daughter and actually covered her eyes, made some sort of offended noise and dramatically stormed off. Of course, this just made us laugh harder and resulted in once again, a quick, appropriate for being out and about, kiss.
