I wonder if there's a couple out there has been together since more than 30 years can still be holding hands, not because they have to but they want to even if they are tired of it and just taking a break. There are always going back to holding hands again. I'm not saying a couple should hold hands everyday but it's that bond and that strong connection between people who stay in love with each other. I think holding hands are important to a relationship because it is pure affection and to remind the person you still love him/her. I mean, when some people grow old together, they still hold hands.
