While some think it's love, a lot of people think it's fake because it is quite impossible to stand for six hours on a flight, and they also slammed the woman for being abusive.
An image of a man standing near a flight seat while his wife comfortably sleeps across three seats in a row recently surfaced online on social media. According to Daily Mail, Courtney Lee Johnson, a life coach from Indiana, shared the picture, claiming that an unidentified man stood in the aisle of the cabin just so his wife could for a full six hours during a long-haul flight. She Tweeted: This guy stood up the whole 6 hours so his wife could sleep. Now THAT is love. However, not a lot of people seemed to think this was love. There seemed to be a lot of heated criticism based on the photo that has over 2.6k comments.

Courtney, however, could only see the love in the picture. She saw a devoting husband who was willing to sacrifice his comfort so that his wife could sleep peacefully. The thing is, it seemed quite unbelievable to people that the man managed to get away with standing in the aisle of a flight for six whole hours without having the crew come up to him. I mean, it is quite hard to stand up for even five minutes straight before they come and ask you to settle down.
She could have still rested her head on his lap.— Fossil King 🇳🇦 (@_Sylva_H) September 6, 2019
Others just deemed this as misuse of love and abuse because the woman simply used the man. Also, a few other people seemed to think the man was not married to the woman because he did not have a wedding ring on. Also, because they wanted to do a "fact check", they wanted the name and number of the airlines. Surprisingly, there were a LOT of people who compared this incident to that of Jack's last scene from Titanic, where he drowns because Rose doesn't share the ample space she has with him on the door.
The flight attendants wouldn’t even allow this 😪😪😪— Beautifully_dope (@Steve_wozowski) September 6, 2019
A user named Elle Woods wrote: That is the ultimate love, but with a little travel experience...you know to just lay in his lap and then he can lay his head on your hips. There’s a formula lol. Another user with the handle Twin & Her Hubs added: She couldn't just lie across HIM?! I won't judge their marriage. My hubs is the kind of man who would do this for me, but I am not the kind of wife to ask this of him!
A third user, named FiloMena added: I can't let my man stand for even 10 minutes. I'd definitely be sleeping on his laps which would even be more comfortable. Or rest properly on the chair. Why would you let your man stand for 6 hours? Teka posted: Unless she's sick and this is the only rest position within the circumstance that will make her stay alive. If not, its total bullshit!!! Jessica added: That not love. That's selfishness on the woman's part. Can't she just place her head on his shoulders and sleep? Love doesn't work like that lol.
