i think kissing (no tongue) is acceptable, especially if you guys are engaged!! It’s never been a problem with us, as long as it stays PG. I grew up with my step dad kissing my mom in front of us everyday, so it’s totally normal to me.

I’ve always been a super private person and have never been into PDA in front of anyone, let alone family. That I don’t even think about it now (nothing gross, just touching, hand holding, little kisses) probably says all that needs to be said about finding the right guy. Still, though, I do prefer to sneak a kiss or two rather than just plant one on him when everyone is watching, which is my biggest nervousness as far as the wedding goes!

I am a private person too, and rarely kiss or hug Fiance in front of people we know. We barely touch at all. In contrast, couples in his family are always touching, kissing,giving massages and I try not to creeped out.

Oh man, we’re super touchy/affectionate. No tongue, ever, in front of others, but kisses, hugs, hand holding, and butt grabbing are game.

I have no problem with it.  Fiance and I will kiss in front of both our families, and hold hands, and put our arms around each other.  It’s no big deal to us, but obvs it stays PG at the most- there are kids around!

I get like that in front of everyone lol especially his family as I know they’re really strict on this (although we’re kind of already married in their eyes as we had a religious blessing already and that’s what they consider “married”). He keeps telling me it’s ok and announced “we can even have sex here” when we were at his parents house and he was trying to kiss me and I was pushing him off in case someone came in lmao, I HOPE nobody heard him even though he was only joking.

But even when we’re out with friends and he gets a bit kissy I just try to keep it to a peck or something lol and he’ll be all like “no KISS ME properly!” lololol, a lot of the time now he does it to wind me up cos he knows how I react lmao.

We hold hands & kiss (no tongue) if we’re saying goodbye, hug, etc. We don’t go overboard with it, but we don’t hide it either.

I am a weirdo with PDA in general so around family im even more weird. I am ok with minimal PDA straight across the board. Im ok with holding hands every now and then, an arm around my chair if we are sitting by each other, a quick peck is ok, and every now and then Fiance will come up and rub my shoulders for a second or rub my back with his hand as his way of showing he’s right there by me(one of my favorite things he does actually) and thats ok too. Other than that everything else is private. Im not the most affectionate of people in general, Fiance is though and so we have had to work a lot on finding a middle ground so that he’s ok and I’m ok.

We’re both pretty private, and all my siblings are younger, so rarely in front of my family. Plus I never really saw my parents kiss or show overt affection to each other, so I feel really weird about any kind of PDA in front of them. 

I feel weird being in front of his family too, haha. It’s just weird if it’s in front of family! Strangers – I don’t mind if he gives me a quick kiss, hug, or something.

The only time we ever really kiss in front of family is if I’m already at the destination and he arrives, then we’ll kiss upon saying hello. We’ll hold hands and he may hug me, but that’s about it.

We only really hug or kiss around them if we’re saying hello or goodbye (: We don’t mind doing it quickly in front of them, but we still want to be appropriate haha

we are very affectionate, all the time. we try to hold back when visiting parents, but we still hold hand, sit beside eachother, with a hand on one another, kisses, hugs,  never any tongue.  i try to refrain infront of his family, but mine, i am not so reserved. 🙂

We’re affectionate with hugs, a squeeze or a quick peck.  No making out in front of people.  That’s what teenagers do. lol

I always greet and say goodbye to family and close friends with a hug and/or cheek kiss, and so I don’t think twice about doing that with Fiance. But that’s about it, nothing more than a quick peck!
