Two cents from me...I want to say here that I haven't ever experienced
any problems in an SCA context whether at an event, fighter practice, or
revel, with anyone for showing affection to my partner, Gunnora, (in
case you didn't know who my partner is) such as hand holding, hugging,
or kissing in public.  I feel pretty safe doing that much in the SCA. 
Anymore than that is usually taken to the tent which I would hope ALL
people would do.  In my opinion this is only polite.
