It’s also hard, excruciating, joyful, hurtful, and incredibly fulfilling — at least this is what married people tell me, and from watching them, I believe it.But your reasons for wanting to kiss are the exact reasons a lot of couples decide to have sex. They can't handle not doing what they long to do together. So you need to use a different set of criteria before making any changes.
