I have been married 33 years and like I posted, we might do 3 of those things. The truth is however, the definition of "happiness" is different for all. Happiness and being content are two different things but as we grow older content seems to be enough.... :huh: :)

I stated walking next to my husband and not in front of him as much after reading this so I'd say I'm now up to 1.5/10.

Us, too.  Glad to see others are there too.  We were holding hands walking around Home Depot yesterday. I kiss her every night when I get home from work.

You ladies that aren't being treated this way by your men are settling too low.  There's a reason it's called a partnership, it should be 75%/50% both ways.. It's about both giving 75% and only getting 50% back.  Everyone always says 50%/50% but I don't think it works that way.  You are investing in your future,  If you only put $50 in the bank every month and took $50 out you would never have anything saved up.  You have to put in more than you get back.

9/10. Our schedules are too different for us to go to sleep at the same time!

Actually they don't hold hands but they do link arms - so i'd say that's 1.
