Well, he's my husband so "YES"! And if you live in the same household as someone who has one you're already susceptible to the germs since you use the same items in the home. Now if I didn't live with them & didn't LOVE them like my hubby, then no. But I don't think most people would allow you to kiss them anyway with a cold because they would care not to infect you. But hey, you still breathe the same air as they.
