We all love getting spoiled by our partners, but it's the more subtle and thoughtful gestures that really show they care. Imgur user Flamesonthesideofmyface shared an incredibly heartwarming post highlighting her husband going above and beyond for her as she struggles with endometriosis. She captioned it, "Romance is not flowers and chocolate. It's cleaning a grimy tub," proving that the real definition of love goes beyond gifts.
Each month, she experiences excruciating pain, which she compares it to "getting stabbed in the stomach." Her sweet husband returned from work one day with bags of goodies instead of just the hot pad she expected him to bring. He made her a snack and scrubbed down every inch of their tub, which he filled with muscle reliever. He had the jets running for her and even brought her favorite wine and chocolate as she relaxed. Having a physically demanding day job didn't stop him from cleaning the kitchen and preparing dinner while she soaked.
"People say marriage is where the romance ends or that relationships become stagnant, 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," she wrote.
Now that is the true definition of love. See her post in full below.
