40 Days to a Stronger Marriage ~ Day 17

Today, we get to talk about kissing. Yes, kissing! It can be so much fun! It can also easily be pushed to the wayside in a marriage.

In the early days of your relationship, how much did you long for your lips to meet? If you are anything like me, you thought about it all the time. Somewhere along the line of marriage, work, kids, cleaning, and laundry, that longing can get lost. I'm here today to tell you to revive that longing. I have read that the more you kiss, the more you want to kiss. I have to say that's right.

In case you need any convincing, lets talk a bit about what physically happens to your body when you kiss. According to, "A smooch may start out with a rush of dopamine and desire, but can lead to a sweet surge of oxytocin." Oxytocin is known as the "love" hormone. We can all use a little more of that right?

Scientific talk aside, kissing is just plain fun. Don't get sucked into the little peck on the lips or cheek before work routine. Give him something to rush home for! Tell him how much you missed him all day with your kiss, not your voice. Well, telling him with your voice is good too, but we are talking about kissing here.

Day 17
Commit to kissing your husband at LEAST once a day. I mean REALLY kissing him.
