Ivanka and Kushner appear to have a solid and affectionate marriage, but are restrained when it comes to showing this affection in public. Dr. Nick Morgan, an expert in non-verbal communication, tells Bustle that Ivanka and Kushner have seemingly chosen to adopt a more poised look in public, something which may be due to a desire to protect their family from scrutiny:
"What we see in public settings, it’s a poised and artificial look," Morgan says. "For whatever reason, their decision is to look stiff. I think they’re trying to protect themselves. The father and father-in-law have a hostile relationship with the press. But nothing so far that suggests anything other than a happy marriage."
