Hugging protocol at the adjoining table

The Scene:

Couple 1 is seated at the table next to ours along with a small kid. Couple 2 arrive presently

Observation:

Man 1 and Woman 2 hug each other.
Man 2 and Woman 1 hug each other.
Man 1 and Man 2 shake hands. Man 1 then pulls Man 2 a bit to his side and gives him a half hug.
Woman 1 and Woman 2 give each other a very formal hug and settle down at the table.
Child continues to look clueless.

Overheard:

Woman 2 to Woman 1: Hugging isn’t reserved for the men, right?

Thoughts:

Trying to calculate the Mata Amrita Index of each person at the adjoining table, child excluded.
