If one kisses his/her spouse or touches body parts includng private (without intercourse) , how it will impact fast. Also what about in situations where someone also ejaculates or does not while involved in above mentioned activities. Thanks!

Touching one's wife or even kissing her will not invalidate one's Fast but having a sexual intercourse will invalidate the Fast and one will be required to observe 60 Fasts in addition to making up for the broken Fast. If husband and wife are touching each other while they are observing a Fast and this arouses them to the extent that they might engage in sexual intercourse then it is highly disliked and discouraged. One should stay away from those practices that might lead them to breaking their Fast.
If one ejaculates while observing a Fast then the Fast will become invalid and he will be required to make up for this Fast. A Fast does not break if someone experiences a wet dream while asleep.
And Allah knows best.
