Everyone appreciates a thoughtful gesture from a loved one, but prepare for your heart to melt all over the place after hearing how one man went the extra mile to show his wife how much he cares about her well-being.
Imgur user Flamesonthesideofmyface recently wrote a post highlighting how her husband supports her while she deals with the excruciating pain of endometriosis. "Romance is not flowers and chocolate. It's cleaning a grimy tub," she captioned a photo of her husband scrubbing their bathtub. "I have never, in my life, felt more cherished or protected."
As the poster explains, she experiences excruciating stomach pain every month when she gets her period, so her partner does all he can to make sure she's feeling pampered:
Today, my husband (who is a commercial/industrial electrician and has a physically demanding job), messaged me to ask if I needed a hot pad and I said that would be nice. I was finishing up my own job at home when he arrived with bags. He immediately made me a snack with cheese and crackers and then went to town cleaning our tub. I mean *cleaning*. He scrubbed every jet, took off the filter, and made it sparkle and shine. He filled the tub with muscle relieving bath goodness he'd just bought, set the jets running, and brought me my favorite wine and chocolate after I settled in (along with "just shout out any time you want more wine.") As I sit here soaking, he's now cleaning the kitchen and said he'd prepare dinner after. He got lotion for a massage, a hot pad for my stomach, and said we can watch trashy TV or play Breath of the Wild tonight while I relax in my pajamas.
Sounds like a candidate for Husband of the Year to us!
"People say marriage is where the romance ends or that relationships become stagnant," she ends her post. "But it really is the best thing in the world to be married to your closest friend-particularly when they make sure to show you that you matter."
