My Love often reaches for my hand to hold it. At church as we worship together. While walking. In the car. At home. I know he loves to hold my hand and I love for him to do so. Holding hands with my Love is a reassuring gesture to me, of our love for one another. Recently, I was sitting at a local coffee shop and I spotted an older couple drinking coffee and holding hands across the table. I thought to myself as I smiled…they look to be in love growing old together.
I also love the message conveyed to our children by our hand holding. Our children see our love for one another. They are comforted knowing we want to be in our marriage.
Holding hands, in addition to communicating love, offers reassurance to the husband and wife that they love and desire one another in a marriage. It symbolizes a union agreed upon by the man and woman involved.
Some couples will refrain from holding hands in public because they feel it is inappropriate. I disagree when it comes to holding hands. After all, we’re married to this person we hold hands with and we are witnessing to others that marriage promise we made in the presence God. There’s no shame in holding the hand of the one you love in the presence of others.
Holding hands with your spouse both privately and in public is acceptable. Make the effort to reach for the hand of your spouse and let them know you appreciate being with them and married to them.
