Define passionate. Do you mean "tonsil-hockey" kind of kisses? If that's the case then I'd say 3 times per week, because that is always taken as the initiation of sex.

>>Define passionate. Do you mean "tonsil-hockey" kind of kisses? If that's the case then I'd say 3 times per week, because that is always taken as the initiation of sex. But my husband and I do kiss very tenderly at least once per day.<<

I would define "passionate" as being a kiss that you could only share with your lover. So tender kisses most definitely count, as would anything involving tongues :-)

Right now, I'm extremely happy for you (as well as incredibly jealous) since my wife won't French kiss me at all even when we do have sex. I keep hoping those kisses will return (and I DREAM of something like a make-out session, but think those days are sadly long gone for me). Still, I know she's got trouble with intimacy and I'm trying to not make too big a deal of it, but sex without any passionate kissing is, well, pretty passionless. . .

That makes me sad to hear, issytish :-( I remember infrequently visiting the "Secrets of Married Sex" group and being envious of all the fun activities taking place in those relationships. I didn't post there, really, because I felt so out of place.

Are you sure things are so unsalvageable? It seemed like you and your DH had such a great relationship, but I know how quickly resentments can build when ML rears its ugly head. Still, you always sounded like a real fun lady and that your DH was incredibly lucky to have you.

My heart and prayers go out to you. I know from intimate experience how ML can destroy a great relationship. Keep your head up.

Yes, I'm sure it's unsalvageable, we've gone through everything trying to get back what we lost or at least find a way to start new but we both accepted it's best to move on.

I voted 2-3 times a month, but I have to say that this is technically passionate kissing (if you can wrap your heads around that).
