This chapter was interesting to me as my husband and I have recently begun working with the book The Five Love Languages (more about that later). Touch is something I have personally become more aware of since bringing that book home.
When Will and I began dating we would hold hands in the car every moment possible. We would cuddle watching movies rather than sprawl out on opposite sides of the sofa. Sometimes we don’t even share the same blanket!
This chapter was about rekindling the physical aspect of your relationship with your spouse. Becky Thompson is very specific about it being “all encompassing” in the physical world: holding hands, hugging, cuddling, etc.
Of course when one touches a loved one they experience an increase of oxytocin which is the happy hormone. This really, truly, simple task makes everybody happy and calm, which in turn makes the relationship happier, right? So simple. 🙂
