    Does being Shomar Negiah truly make your marriage more intimate?

    That is one supposed (non-religious) benefit but I would expect that in the long term, it may be the same as if you weren't shomar negiah (but maybe different than if you engaged in premarital relations).  I'm not sure.  The best person to answer is someone who was Shomar Negiah in their first marriage and then got remarried later for whatever reason.

    I'm not Jewish (am Christian), but avoid touching females I am not related to; on principal. I never knew that this was part of Jewish tradition, and am happy to learn about it having Scriptural reference. Thank you for teaching me about it.

      IMPRESSIVE! I find it hard when I am with my boyfriend - not YET married.  I've BENT the rules by allowing small touches over clothing (no kissing, no hand-holding, but touch arms/backs over clothing) and want to know if this will affect our marriage
