    Default Affection

    Are you and your DH affectionate? If so, how?

    I presume you're talking about now, and not when we first met - and couldn't keep our hands off each other

    To answer your question, no, we're not really affectionate. We're generally too busy and too tired to be honest! And we don't even have kids yet

    We hold hands when we cross the road. And when we're out and about. Always have, always will. It's our thing. And we snuggle in bed at night - on the nights when The Husband doesn't collapse into unconsciousness before I get there, lol.

    used to be way more affectionate. I feel like that aspect of our r'ship has slipped a but since ds was born. we're both usually too tired and busy! but we are still affectionate..even if it's just holding hands in the car ride in the morning or hugs/foot pats on the couch of an evening.

    I think we're still affectionate but certainly not in the same ways we were when we first got together. Now it's more the little moments of affection. Quick hugs as we pass each other in the hall. Kissing goodbye and hello. Snuggling in front of the tv. Those sorts of things.

    Yeah I think so. Not as much as pre kids but we always have a cuddle in bed at night, kiss when we see each other again and snuggle on the couch some nights.

    Pretty affectionate, probably him more than me as I am a bit touched out from the kids really. We hold hands in the car/walking and sit and snuggle of a night once the kids are in bed, he will initiate hugs and kisses just spontaneously (and no not to get sex lol), we still sometimes wake up in the morning holding hands which is funny after 16 years! He rubs my back as I fall asleep at night, it's like my sleep aid haha!

    Not as much as we were when we got together at 18, but we still hold hands everywhere we go, kiss as we pass/leave each other, grab each other, stroke each other, yearn for the other one, whisper sweet nothings to each other, hold each other to fall asleep. It hasn't really changed that much in 17.5yrs, just gone from horny fresh love to comfortable, natural love after time and 4 kids. ������

    All of our grandparents still showed love and affection to each other after 50yrs married

    We are. But I'll be honest and say that it is largely because of dh. He is a very affectionate person and instigates it a lot. I'm not really but I have got better at understanding dh's needs and responding to that. His love language is definitely physical touch. We hug and kiss each time we see each other, cuddle on the couch when the kids are in bed etc. it's also important to dh that our kids see us being affectionate with each other as his parents weren't at all and he thinks it was odd. So we have family cuddles in bed a lot, hold hands while we are out etc.

    I think its part of relationships to have affection go up and down depending on what is going on.

    We still hold hands, do couch cuddles etc - but kids get in the way. Except DS demands we always kiss goodbye lol (but he expects us to kiss him /DD too).

    I find it happens a lot from afar. The looks you give and how things are said. We still joke around lots and have little smiles etc that are just for us.
