Is your wife going through menopause?

My first piece of advice for those wondering what is going with their ‘angel’ is to listen to the words of Charlie Pride. Charlie had it right back in 1971 when he released the country song ‘Kiss an angle good morning’.  These are the lyrics to the song-

Whenever I chance to meet

Some old friends on the street

They wonder how does a man get to be this way

I’ve always got a smiling face

Anytime and any place

And everytime they ask me why

I just smile and say

You’ve got to

Kiss an angel good morning

And let her know you think about her when you’re gone

Kiss an angel good morning

And love her like the devil when you get back home

Well people may try to guess

The secret of a happiness

But some of them never learn it’s a simple thing

The secret I’m speaking of

Is a woman and a man in love

And the answer is in this song

That I always sing

You’ve got to

Kiss an angel good morning

And let you know you think about her when you’re gone

Kiss an angel good morning

And love her like the devil when you get back home

Fortunately for me, my husband of thirty years is very generous with his kisses but not because of Charlie, he cannot stand country music.  We went on holiday to Vietnam a couple of years ago with another couple and our tour guide asked our friends if my husband and I were on our honeymoon. ‘No’ they said, ‘they are always like that’.

The thing is, we all need to feel loved. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs places love together with belonging 3rd of the 5 essential needs. The importance of love, friendship, and intimacy is essential to us all.

I am not saying that you must kiss your wife in public. I am simply saying, kiss her and if you can be honest with yourself, you too feel better when you do.

I know there are times when us women are not our best whether it be because we are experiencing  symptoms of PMT, Peri-menopause, or menopause itself and the thought of giving us a kiss is the last thing you want to do. Trust me, it is at those times when you consider your angel to be un-kissable, that is when she needs to be kissed the most.
