Keep in Touch

in the generous life

How’s your touch life?

Do you and your husband touch often?

It’s a good thing to incorporate more touch in your relationship. It makes it easier to move into cuddling and sex. It makes it easier to hug and console each other on hard days. It adds fuel to the intimacy in your marriage.

So pat your husband’s arm when you walk by, rub his shoulders when he’s sitting at his desk and commit random acts of hugging.

Your marriage will be the better for it.

You can’t wrap love in a box, but you can wrap a person in a hug.  Author Unknown

This tip made me smile. My husband and I touch each other ALL THE TIME. It’s mostly because we both have physical touch as our primary love language, so we can’t keep our hands off each other. :) My day doesn’t feel complete until we hug after coming home from work!

You are so accurate about this “random” touching. We all need it but most of the time guys do not realize how much our wives thrive on non-sexual touching. Holding hand riding in the car or holding hands in the parking lot going to the store always allows u to connect in an emotional fashion that most men do not understand. However, when you think about it, guys touch in other ways. We gently slap, hit or slug each other all the time. The sports pat on the back is to encourage a job well done or accuse the other fellow just needs a lift.

Thanks for your ministry. Paul sends me the Generous Husband tips which is a great blessing to me.

Jerry, thanks so much for your comment. It’s nice to hear a male perspective.

I like touching with my partner and I enjoy it. I think all husbands do. We’re designed by God to be this way and I think it is a blessing for every marriage. Hopefully all wives out there know that and accept that fact. I have seen some women just depriving their man from enjoying their touch and it’s really sad. Makes me think about’s ‘What Men Really Want’ movie. I think it’s educational and very inspiring!

God bless you and your blog Lori!
