In other words, do you hold the hand of your loved one in public or maybe just walking together when no one is around, or in both instances? I know that most will hold the hand of a child, but do you hold the hand of your love in this life? My husband and I still hold hands. One time, we were walking into a concert together holding hands, and the couples we were with, who were married too, thought it was so strange that we were still holding hands, even after being married for so long. What do you think?

Oh,Dearest Eric! What a very lovely answer here! Your answer places a big smile on my face this day. Yes, the gentle human touch is very calming! I loved holding hands with my children, now my grands. Loved holding my mother's hand,and when praying.
I do not know the etiquette here. But my momma taught me to say thank you if someone did something nice to you. So Thank you. I am honored.
You're so welcome, as your answer covered all aspects of holding hands so lovingly from your heart. All answers by others were great too, and I just had to pick your answer.
Hi Jan, thanks for answering! Well, our friends thought it strange, and we have been married forever! LOL You have a very good point there about the constant holding of a smarthphone or ipod! Sad reality of the result of technology!
Aw, Dearest Cat, I knew you were one to love to hold hands! All of your reasons stated here as to why you love to hold hands speak volumes! It truly does touch one's heart when one sees others holding hands, at least for me too! :)
I love to see a new couple, just starting their journey and falling in love... as much as I love to see a couple that has made it through so many years, the good and the bad and still have that kind of bond! It's just beautiful for so many reasons!
Yes, it is so very beautiful to me too! Especially, when I see older couples in their 80s and 90s still holding hands, just makes me go "awwww" for I know of their lifetime of love, no doubt!!! :)
I was very much in love for 5 years with someone and when we were 'new', I remember seeing a very old couple walking to their car, hand in hand, my boyfriend said 'That'll be us someday' and it meant a lot... just the thought of loving through it all
Hi Wayne, that is a good point about the couple! I am happyto know you still love holding your wife's hand! Aw now, so sweeeet, and a poet knows that is a good thing right there!!! What lovely words here of you and your soul-mate. Indeed, why not!
Oh, Dearest Micheal, I can always count on you to be so very poetic even when answering questions or commenting! Your words are always beautifully written and a gift to all who read! What beautiful sentiments you have expressed here. Thank you!!!
Hi Jackie, thanks for answering. Well, we are getting close to being old and gray (I'm talking about me, not you)! LOL Seriously though, it is truly sweet to see, as it just shows of that lifetime of love together, at least to me too.
Hi Sparklea! I am not surprised one bit that you still hold hands, and the feelings you describe are so true! I love seeing older couples in their 80s and 90s holding hands. It is so touching. Thanks for sharing this day! Blessings, Faith Reaper
Hi MichelleHillstrom, thanks for the great answer here, and I am happy to know you still love to hold hands. Yes, you're right most likely concerning the other couples we were with at that concert. Yes, it is very important to show affection.
How wonderful. I just reckon I do not pay attention. By golly jingles I do declare I just expect it. How fun to let your sister hold your arm when she is all to the nines for your daughter. Hi hi hi hi hi. Ain't it fun lovin!!!?
Hi Iburmaster, thanks for answering. Aw, on the holding hands part, but I am glad you show affection in other ways no doubt! I have seen those in their 80s and 90s still holding hands. I appreciate your honest answer and taking time to answer!
I guess a peck is OK but I do not like to see kissing in public, I think that is a private matter and long drawn out kisses seem to be for show. I had a sister/ brother-in-law that lolly gagged in public and fought like cats and dogs any other time.
Sounds like they had a strange relationship.
