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 officiants and ceremony coordinators we delight in assisting couples celebrate one of the best and most memorable days of their life. We hope you find this blog to be a source of inspiration and joy.
