We can find explanations that married Muslims should love and respect their spouses in the following verses of the Quran and hadith:

يٰٓاَيُّهَا الَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوْا لَا يَحِلُّ لَكُمْ اَنْ تَرِثُوا النِّسَاۤءَ كَرْهًا ۗ وَلَا تَعْضُلُوْهُنَّ لِتَذْهَبُوْا بِبَعْضِ مَآ اٰتَيْتُمُوْهُنَّ اِلَّآ اَنْ يَّأْتِيْنَ بِفَاحِشَةٍ مُّبَيِّنَةٍ ۚ وَعَاشِرُوْهُنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوْفِ ۚ فَاِنْ كَرِهْتُمُوْهُنَّ فَعَسٰٓى اَنْ تَكْرَهُوْا شَيْـًٔا وَّيَجْعَلَ اللّٰهُ فِيْهِ خَيْرًا كَثِيْرًا

O you who have believed, it is not lawful for you to inherit women by compulsion. And do not make difficulties for them in order to take [back] part of what you gave them unless they commit a clear immorality. And live with them in kindness. For if you dislike them – perhaps you dislike a thing and Allah makes therein much good. (An-Nisa [2]: 19).

اَلرِّجَالُ قَوَّامُوْنَ عَلَى النِّسَاۤءِ بِمَا فَضَّلَ اللّٰهُ بَعْضَهُمْ عَلٰى بَعْضٍ وَّبِمَآ اَنْفَقُوْا مِنْ اَمْوَالِهِمْ ۗ فَالصّٰلِحٰتُ قٰنِتٰتٌ حٰفِظٰتٌ لِّلْغَيْبِ بِمَا حَفِظَ اللّٰهُ ۗوَالّٰتِيْ تَخَافُوْنَ نُشُوْزَهُنَّ فَعِظُوْهُنَّ وَاهْجُرُوْهُنَّ فِى الْمَضَاجِعِ وَاضْرِبُوْهُنَّ ۚ فَاِنْ اَطَعْنَكُمْ فَلَا تَبْغُوْا عَلَيْهِنَّ سَبِيْلًا ۗاِنَّ اللّٰهَ كَانَ عَلِيًّا كَبِيْرًا

Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband’s] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance – [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand. (An-Nisa [2]: 34).

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : أَكْمَلُ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ إِيْمَانًا أَحْسَنُهُمُ خُلُقًا ، وَخِيَارُكُمُ خِيَارُكُمْ لِنِسَائِهِمْ .

“The best of believers are those who are best in character. And the best of you are those who are chosen (morally) to women.”

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : مَنْ كَانَتْ لَهُ اِمْرَأَتَانِ فَمَالَ إِلَى إِحْدَاهُمَا جَاءَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَشِقُّهُ مَاِئلٌ

From Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu, from the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, “Whoever has two wives and he love one of them more, then he will come on the Day of Resurrection in a tilted state.”

If we read some Islamic legal literature on the relationship between husband and wife in Islam, we will not find an explanation that specifically explains that it is permissible for a husband to touch his wife’s breasts. The reason is because the discussion is very particular.

But if we want to know the legality of husband touching his wife’s breasts in Islam, we can find it in the discussion of the romantic relationship between husband and wife. For example, we can find an explanation that Islam allows husband and wife to bathe together. We can find this explanation in the hadith below:

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهَا قَالَتْ : كُنْتُ أَغْتَسِلُ أَنَا وَرَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مِنْ إِنَاءٍ وَاحِدٍ تَخْتَلِفُ أَيْدِيْنَا فِيْهِ مِنَ الْجَنَابَةِ . مُتَّفَقٌ عَلَيْهِ

From Aisha radliyallahu anha, she said, “I once bathed with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam in one container because of Janabah. Our hands are different in them.” The hadith is narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim.

In the above hadith it is explained that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam once bathed with Aisha bint Abu Bakr, one of his wives. Bathing with your wife is one of the things that can make the relationship between husband and wife more romantic. Likewise, touching wife breast.

That is a brief explanation of touching wife breast in Islam. As Muslims, we must understand that.
