Here’s a bit of interesting news. An insurance company’s study showed that husbands who receive a good morning kiss from their wives are often happier and more successful.
- Husbands who kiss their wives each morning before work usually live five years longer than those who do not.
- A kissing husband has fewer automobile accidents, loses up to 50% less time from work because of illness, and earns 20-30% more.
This study should remind us of Paul’s exhortation, ‘Husbands, love your wives’ (Ephesians 5:25). Expressing our love for our spouses, whether by a good morning kiss or by other kindnesses, will result in a happier marriage and a better life. Following God’s instruction for marriage can make a bad marriage good and a good marriage better. -Tom Keener
