Public Displays of Affection in Restaurant

Dear Dr. Dave and Dr. Dee,

My husband of 26 years loves to cuddle, kiss, and whisper love words into my ear at the table at functions. I can see that some of the quests sometimes feel uncomfortable. Is it bad manners? My husband is a very sensitive person, and I don't know how to tell him to slow down a bit.


Please advice

Dear Please advise,

Public displays of affection (PDA), especially in a restaurant, should be avoided. A few hugs and quick kiss does no harm. But, ongoing canoodling and kissing is a distraction for other patrons.

If your husband is a sensitive person, then he should be perceptive about how uncomfortable his actions are making others feel. Before going to the next function, gently remind your husband that too much PDA makes other people uncomfortable. If you feel embarrassed by his overly affectionate actions in public, then also let him know. A loving and caring husband will respect his wife's feelings.
