Nothing’s wrong with showing a little affection in church (holding hands, laying your head on a shoulder, a kiss on the forehead, etc.), but there is something about public affection between couples, particularly in church that can be problematic. There are circumstances deeper than PDA prompting certain points of connection. Perhaps someone just lost a family member or is struggling with faith and their partner wants to comfort them. However, kissing each other every few minutes or going as far as giving each other heavy back rubs during worship is a bit much, don’t you think? It not only rubs people the wrong way, it’s a major distraction. There’s no way your focus can be on worship, when you’re consumed by your spouse in church. Husbands and wives can reach out to each other with touch that’s nurturing in nature.
