Here is my man… again!
I was brought up a catholic and the religion did install various rituals in me. Thankfully, I have now absolved my self of most of them. One ritual lasted until I was a late teen – going to confession. I remember the process well and those memories inspired this piece of naughty fiction.
There are numerous tasks or activities that can strengthen a couple’s bond. Things they share or do together – things that would be missed if they stopped. Of course there are sexual acts ranging from normal to kinky or even deviant, and household duties – the supermarket shop or cooking a meal together. All these might make you feel more attached to your partner due to the security that ritual provides.
