Often in the house if we're cuddling, but no we're not the super lovey dovey type that walks around holding hands in public.

We still do! Not all the time but I try and make a point of it. I'm not for PDAs but we get along better when we hold hands when out and about or just hanging out at home.

Its harder now that we are always carrying a baby or car seat or pushing a strollee, but if we are out alone we do and we fall asleep holding hands.

Yep, this. Harder when we're with the kids. If it's just us walking, I have to grab his hand or he walks a mile ahead of me. He is constantly in a hurry and I can't keep up, so I make him hold my hand to walk at my pace.

That's us, only it's because his legs are, like, twice the length of mine. He's just sauntering along, but he's got a much longer step than me!

We try even when the kids are around, if we each have a spare hand. I remembered being comforted by seeing my parents hold hands, so it's not only because I like to, but because I want that for my kids too.

Yes we do! Not all the time, but if we see a good opportunity we take it. Or sometimes if we happen to be sitting on the couch. OH and when driving, that's a good time because all the kids are contained in their seats!!

Oh yes, unless we are both pushing strollers, normally though he pushes the stroller with one hand, holds my hand and I hold my DDs hand, our oldest is usually riding her bike. When we go for walks although he walks much faster than I do he always keeps the same pace as me ♥

We do, mostly at home when together. We will sometimes when out, but like someone else mentioned, we're often lugging this or that.


OH!!! I should mention that I do something DH didn't really like, though he is used to it now. I like to hold onto his arm, not his hand. He said way back when how it made him feel old. Well too bad, I like it. So when we're out 8 times out of 10 if there is any time or place for holding onto something, it's his arm before his hand.

Hardly ever anymore. I don't even remember when we stopped, but it just doesn't seem to happen now.

All the time, unless holding someone's hand or pushing a stroller or whatever. If Jenna sees it, she wants to come get in the middle.

I think it's a timeless gesture. Real proper gentleman and lady thing. Hands flop around, I like holding onto a sturdy man.

We do here and there, usually for a few minutes at a time when we're walking if hands aren't full taking care of Alex. It starts to get uncomfortable after a bit because of our height different.
We hold hands a lot when we are alone and cuddling and such.

We do when we're going for walks, with and w/o kids. He and I both like it.
