One More Relationship Question

Okay, this one is a little more personal, but the poll is anonymous, and let me explain a little first.

Earlier this year, I watched a delightful movie called Leap Year. It stars my beloved Amy Adams and probably some other people.

There’s a scene in the movie where some couples (and a few people who aren’t a couple) are sitting around the dinner table talking about the secrets to a successful marriage. One of the people says that they believe it’s important to kiss your spouse every day–to really kiss them, deeply and meaningfully.

Do you and your significant other share at least one deep, meaningful kiss each day?

Now, that might just be movie advice. My parents have been together for 40+ years, and I hardly ever saw them kiss like that.

But it made me wonder if there was any merit to that wisdom. A deep kiss–not just a peck on the lips, but a full kiss–is so sensual and intimate. It’s something you reserve for the one you love. Can the intentional act of kissing like that at least once a day help to strengthen your relationship?

While I’m sure there are relationships where this happens naturally, the intention might be important in others. Thinking back to my relationships, I think they could have used a little more intention. I know for sure that there were some women I really enjoyed kissing, and others not so much, so part of it was natural chemistry. But a part of me wonders if I should have been a little more aware of the power of a good, daily kiss.

What do you think? Is Leap Year right? And if you care to share, I’d love to hear your perspective from your relationships.
