1 Corinthians 7:1-2 says, “Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.   Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.”
The word “touch” here is defined by Strong’s Concordance (G-680), as “to attach oneself.”   The context here is not referring to courteously shaking hands with someone in a greeting, but is clearly referring to a “romantic” touch, because it goes on to say that to avoid fornication, a man should not touch a woman in such a way, but should get his own wife.  So, “It is good for a man not to touch a woman” (in any type of romantic way), because that should be reserved for between a husband and his wife, alone.
A “kiss” is definitely a “romantic” attachment or “touch,” and it has led many down the road to immorality.  Proverbs 7:10 says, “And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.”   In verse 13 it says, “So she caught him, and kissed him.”  She says in verses 17-18, “I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.   Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.”   He falls to her temptations in verses 21-22, “With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.   He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks.”  The Bible warns in Proverbs 7:26-27, “For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.   Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.”
As Christians disobey Scripture, they reap the same results as the world—babies conceived outside of marriage, unhappy marriages, and broken homes.  Galatians 6:7-8 says, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.   For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.”
I would encourage you to order all 6 of our Bible Study Courses on the subject of “Marriage.”  They are free for the asking.  The fact of the matter is that the whole “dating” scene is a recipe for divorce.  If you do not like something about a person, then you drop that one and move on to someone else.  The process continues, and it sets a pattern.  When a person finally does get married, that pattern is hard to stop.  The longer that a person is married, the more faults that person sees in his/her spouse, and the feelings come, “I’ve got to get out of this relationship!”
The Bible teaches “commitment” before any romantic attachment.  Every single woman or man out there is the potential wife or husband of someone else, and you have no right to become romantically attached to another person’s wife or husband.  The last of the 10 Commandments is found is Exodus 20:17, “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.”   You have no Biblical right to fall in love with someone, to whom you are not engaged.   We all have a choice in life to believe what God says about who would make a good husband or wife—or to believe our feelings above what God says.  Sadly, most people make the mistake of putting their feelings above God’s Word, and they thus pay the miserable consequences.  
I have married several couples who had their first kiss at their marriage ceremony.  They had everything exciting to look forward to in their marriages.  Everything was new to them, and they learned together with excitement.  But to many couples, by the time that they get married, their first kiss has long passed (along with their purity, for many).  They have really nothing new to look forward to in their marriages, and you can soon tell it by the way that they act and speak to each other.  There is a better way.  Order the Bible Study Courses and see.
