Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

 According to the Hanafi madhab it is permissible for the husband and wife to kiss each other in the state of wudhu. It is narrated from Ayesha (R.A)

عن عائشة  أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم كان يقبل بعض نسائه ، ثم يخرج إلى الصلاة ولا يتوضأ(رواه الاربعة)

( Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) used to kiss some of his wives and then go out for salaah without performing a new ablution)(Abu Dawood,Tirmidhi 1/133 Darul kutubul ilmiyya 1/104 ,Nasai Maktabah matbuaat,Ibn Majah 1/168 Al Maktaba al-ilmiya)

And Allah knows best
