This month’s Ask Coach Kathy question is about physical intimacy.
How do I get my spouse to be more affectionate?
In almost every relationship, one partner physically touches more than the other. Having said that, the best way I know to encourage your mate to be more physically affectionate is to catch him or her in the act of doing so, and reinforce the behavior by telling or showing him or her in some way that you really appreciate the gesture of affection. You may not ever receive the amount of affection that you give, but any increase from your mate is positive!
