Actor Farhan Akhtar and Anchor, Singer Shibani Dandekar are not afraid of showing a little PDA now and then and the shutterbugs can't get enough of their appearances.

Be it their vacation in London during Shibani's birthday or hiking in Vancouver, the couple has set relationship goals on a higher pedestal with each day passing by. Pictures of the couple throwing their arms around each other and holding hands in public has love written all over it and we can't get over the PDA.

Farhan Akhtar also posted a picture with Shibani and his two kids, Shakya and Akira, from his 16 years of marriage with ex-wife Adhuna Bhabani.

With love and PDA in the air, we couldn't help but bring up the importance of PDA in relationships of today. Several studies prove the importance of PDA for a healthy and a lasting relationship.

Public Display of Affection (PDA) is all about getting out publicly and holding your partner by the hand which not only shows appreciation for your better half but also is a validation that you aren't shy about your relationship or your choice.

A little PDA here and there is known to create a deeper connection and bond with your partner. Following bickering and arguments stepping out in public is not easy so if one of the partners takes an initiative to hold hands, it might as well makes things better.

A peck on the cheek every now and then is an act of reassurance and as builds great confidence in a relationship.

For couples with kids, it sets a great example for the younger ones to adapt to an environment that is filled with love and affection. Having parents who embrace each other often sets a strong example for kids for their future relationships.
