My husband always takes my hand when we're out without the kids and I remember with a start that we're in love. But the most moving thing I know is a 90 year old couple who walk down the church aisle hand in hand each week - my heart!

What a great topic! And something I think of often. I'm very aware of the fact that sometimes our kids see the Hubs and I disagree (sometimes loudly) over things. I try to make sure that they are also around to see us embrace or share a kiss. I want them to know that there's both. I agree with you that too much PDA is just yuck, but some playful flirting between two parents would be a great way to teach kids about relationships and also to fill a house with love.

I agree, Omaha--squabbles and raised voices are so much more obvious to kids than a light kiss here and there, a hug, a cuddle--and so much more fun to spread around, right?

We recently went on a date, beck, and held hands and it felt both so natural, and so weird, too! It's easy to forget you're in love when you're married, and so nice to remember it--like a great surprise.

And I get all sappy inside when I see very old couples holding hands...
