Dear Dr. Laura,

When did holding hands with your spouse become a thing of the past? My husband and I took the train into Chicago to do some shopping with some married friends of ours, we had a nice time. On the train ride home, the wife of my husband's friend called us out for holding hands the whole day. It almost felt like she was making fun of us.

I thought back to earlier in the day and I felt sorry for her. The group of friends kind of laughed at us but it didn't bother me. I knew what I had and I wasn't going to let go. (My husband and I are in our late 30's, married for 18 years with 2 teenage children.) My husband still opens the car door for me and holds my hand while we are in the car. There are times we hold hands in bed. I find great comfort in holding his hand.

An email you read the other day regarding this subject hit me. I realized my kids see how we treat each other in our marriage and they will pick up our habits. At that moment, I gave my husband and I an A+ for being great examples to our children.

Never letting go,

Jenny
