Are You Affectionate With Your Family?

Liv and Steven Tyler enjoyed an evening of father-daughter bonding last night at the Super premiere. The cameras caught the pair engaging in some red carpet PDA. The hand-on-face closeness might induce a level of discomfort familiar from Angelina Jolie's infamous kiss with and profession of love for her brother at the 2000 Oscars. Still, touchy-feely relatives could argue anyone who objects to innocent family love is the one with the issues.

You might not take showing your affection this far, but is your family the type to hug, kiss, and maybe cuddle on the couch well past childhood? Or do you have a more hands-off relationship with your parents, siblings, and other family members?

I come from one of those zero-touch families, and it sucks. Whenever we hug each other, it's because something is horribly wrong. The exception to this is my daughter. She is three years old, and just the most affectionate little lovebug I've ever seen. She gives hugs and kisses out of the blue, wants to snuggle and hold hands all the time, and uses "I love you" as punctuation. :D Her dad is very affectionate, too. Hopefully we can keep that affection and open expression of love going as she gets older.

My family and I are big huggers. But never kissing. Where's that option?

^ Haha, agree. That was beyond gross. My family is pretty reserved when it comes to emotion and affection. I can remember the last time my mom hugged me-- it was April 5, 2008. However, I do hug my dad a lot more than my mom. Not often, but enough that I don't remember the exact dates of when it occurs! And I hug my sister every time we hang out.

Angelina and her brother's kiss was on a whole other level of creepy.

I mean, I don't tenderly cup my father's face while kissing his mouth like ol' Liv up there, but my whole family always greet with hugs and cheek kisses, and we cuddle and hold hands. I think that's entirely normal.
