This week in Love Letter, our newsletter about the highs, lows and woes of relationships, we find out how dating as an ob-gyn can accelerate all things awkward and inappropriate when getting to know someone new. And if you’re in the market for a well-behaved husband, why not just train the one you have? We’re revisiting a classic Modern Love from 2006, in which one wife’s quest for a more fulfilling marriage (and a deep yearning for him to pick up his dirty socks) led to the discovery that animal training techniques can work on humans, too. Also: While kissing in public often makes onlookers uncomfortable, it might just make your partner feel the same way. So have that talk before going in for a kiss.
Here’s to better dates, happy marriages and consensual PDA.
