Hugs

    Studies continue to show that hugs are beneficial for physical and mental health.

    What are your thoughts about hugging your spouse?

    Would you say that hugs make up an important part of your marriage?

    I feel that hugging my wife means a lot to both of us, and helps resolve a lot of arguments and promote intimacy.

      I am not a huge hugger, but there are times where there is nothing like being nestled in his arms. But, apparently I don’t find it that important or I would do it more often.

      Is the benefit the actual hug or the touch?

      In bed, we do lay touching the majority of the time.

        Hugging means a lot to my wife.  It signifies our closeness, unity, intimacy, friendship, care of one another, etc.   It is in a way a great part of the structure of who we are.  And, it means the same to me.  I  would say that there are a number of standard hugs like, the connection hug of greeting, the intimate hug of desire, the forgiveness hug of humility, the reminder hug of friend, partner and lover.   One of my favorite is the dominate hug of ownership.

          I love hugs and thoroughly enjoy hugging my DW. For me they are very important. Even more important than kissing.

            I never thought about how much I love hugging until we both have wounded torsos that make molding ourselves to each others’ bodies uncomfortable. We are careful to make sure we continue our greeting kisses but they are too often a lips-only affair these days.  🙁  (Reminding myself it is temporary. We WILL heal!)

              We hug each other often every day. It’s just a natural thing for us to do. After nearly 50 years of marriage a hug is fresh and delightful.
