That is what I was taught growing up. My Mom and Dad never talked about it and when my Mom did it was a yucky thing. My parents sleep in different bed and I have seen them kiss maybe 10 times my 35 years and we live next door to them. I am married to a very affectionate Man who wants to hug and kiss, cuddle and have sex quite a bit. I have a really hard time with this. Do you think it could be the way I was raised? He was raised by a single mom. I'm not really sure what he seen growing up. Sometimes I feel smothered by him. I'm very independent minded. We have been married for almost 17 years and I feel like the whole lovey all the time thing is a little overboard. Do you think it was the way I was raised?
