At Koru Ceremony we believe not only in supporting couples on their wedding day, but also in their marriage that follows. I love the advice and information by Dr. John Gottman, who is a marriage researcher at the University of Washington. A book I highly recommend to anyone in a relationship is The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work by Dr. Gottman. In addition, The Gottman Institute also has these weekly emails called The Marriage Minute that I enjoy reading and sharing with couples.
The six-second kiss
Dr. John Gottman recommends that couples share a kiss each day that lasts at least six seconds.
Long enough to feel romantic, a six-second kiss shared in daily moments of transition (going to or from work) will strengthen your marriage.
It releases oxytocin, dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. It generates a cascade of love chemicals that reduce stress hormones, lower your blood pressure, and send oxygenated blood to your brain.
Count out loud.
That's a kiss with potential.
Action of the day: Share a six-second kiss with your partner.
Welcome to our blog. As an officiant and wedding coordinator I delight in assisting couples celebrate one of the best and most memorable days of their life. I hope you find this blog to be a source of inspiration and joy.
