Morning Kissing Studies have found that a man who kisses his wife good-bye when he leaves for work every morning averages a higher income than those who don’t. OOoo-la-la even more of a reason for a spicy morning! The reason for this delicious fact is that men who exercise the rituals of affection tend to be more painstaking, more stable, more methodical, thus, higher earners. Studies also show that men who kiss their wives before leaving in the morning live 5 years longer than those who don’t. So next time you and your man are rushing out the door, make the time for a little extra long smooch! – See more at: http://www.romancestuck.com/games/romance-trivia.htm#sthash.Wo8Ieq0F.dpufDiamond
