The royal newlyweds of Germany above are starting their marriage on the right foot - with a beautiful, lovely kiss. Whenever I kiss my husband, I feel like we're just falling in love for the first time. Those butterflies float around in my stomach and a shiver runs down my spine. But it also makes me feel connected to him mentally. It's like I can be certain there is no one else on Earth we are meant to be kissing in this way. I imagine the bride and groom above are feeling something akin to that in this photo, especially since it was their wedding day.
Kissing is one of the many ways to increase intimacy, a key ingredient in enduring marriages. Recently, I wrote about the five ways to increase intimacy in your relationship. While kissing and touch were one of the five suggestions I offered, there are others. And I'm sure I'm missing a few. What do you think the others are?
