“I like kissing, kissing a lot” —Audrey Hepburn

Someplace between dating and 30 years into marriage, most couples digress from kissing being a passionate experience to a routine peck on the check. Is that just a reality we should accept?

We wholeheartedly disagree.

Most of our listeners agree with the statement that when their spouse really kisses them, “the rest of the world fades away”. Kissing hasn’t changed since you learned how to do it. It’s still just as powerful as before, you just need to apply yourself to it. 😉

There are lots of reasons why this might happen; before you resolve to improve your pucker, first assess what has happened in your marriage.

  1. Do we no longer care? Acknowledge and reevaluate the priority of your marriage.
  2. Has life gotten too busy? Create margin in your life.
  3. Is it too personal? Dare to be more vulnerable with your spouse.
  4. Are there hurts that run deep? Consider coaching.

Because some of you feel more comfortable talking with us than your spouse (which we would love for you to change, by the way), we wanted to share the top messages you’d like to tell your spouse about kissing:

  • Let’s take our time.
  • It means more to me than you know.
  • I want more than a peck.
  • It doesn’t always have to lead to the bedroom.
  • We can kiss for fun.
  • Close your eyes and enjoy the moment with me.

As a result of this episode, Alisa is bringing back the mojo back to her kissing game. This week we want to challenge you to be #InTheMoment while you kiss your spouse.
