Q: What are the rules on public displays of affection? I recently had guests at my home- my father in law and his new wife and they massaged and hung all over each other the entire week. Is it appropriate for me as the hostess to say something when this happens?
A: PDA’s are never comfortable for others, but it is equally awkward to say something. As a hostess, unless the behavior is such that it is shocking for children, one generally says nothing but rather bears the discomfort or does one’s best to ignore it.
