Is it love? This man allegedly stood on a 6 hour flight just so his wife could sleep

We all have different love languages and often, couples that stand the test of time (and many other tests, really) are those that learn each other’s love languages and make the choice to love their partner in a way they will understand and feel loved. However, people aren’t convinced that this is true love.

A tweep, Courtney Lee Johnson, posted a picture of an old man standing over his wife on the aisle of a plane and captioned it, “This guy stood up the whole 6 hours so his wife could sleep. Now THAT is love.”

Now the credibility of Courtney’s story is a little questionable because most planes don’t allow passengers to stand for a minute, let alone for the duration of the entire flight. But for argument’s sake, tweeps entertained him and were still not convinced with his stance that the situation was an example of true love.

Even though there was a handful of people who agreed with Courtney, that the act is of true love, most considered the wife very selfish for even asking or allowing her husband to do that for her. Some even said she could’ve slept on his lap, rather than letting him stand for so long because of her.
