I saw something beautiful this morning at the Cracker Barrel. While I was standing in line waiting to be seated I observed the couple in front of me. This husband and wife were in their 80’s. The husband looked down at his wife, smiled at her, and the two of them embraced in the most beautiful public hug I have ever witnessed. They were clearly oblivious to anything else around them. I later learned that they are celebrating their 62-year wedding anniversary. I can’t help but believe that there is a connection between 62 years of marriage and this hug. No doubt there has been many hugs in their 62 years together. How about you and your spouse? Is hugging part of the rhythm of your relationship? If not, now is a great time to start. Research is conclusive. Hugging not only improves your marriage it also improves your health.
