Public show of affection doesn’t mean a couple is perfect. Or even good at all.
Some people are good at showing how they love their spouse outside, but inside they live like cat and mouse. There is a woman I used to know that always hung on her husband’s neck like a dead antelope whenever they were outside.
She draped herself on him, rub at his face and even kiss him. And she loved showing off like this whenever she was around her friends that were having marital challenges. All na show. At home, if you see them exchanging blows, you’d think they were mortal enemies.
There are couples who hardly hold hands outside but are good at bedroom games, while some are simply exhibitionists. They enjoy touching their spouse only when they have spectators. Especially those they think they are better than.
If you saw your friend and the spouse all over each other in front of you, don’t panic, or start thinking you don’t love your partner enough. As long as you guys have your own customised way of showing love to each other, don’t worry.
But, it is important you guys touch each other often. I don’t mean breast pressing or dick squeezing. Just a simple peck, or a touch of the hand on the shoulder or hand on…buttocks. Ha!
