One of the hardest things to do in a relationship is to submit, or agree to take a step back for our loved ones and look at the bigger picture when faced with seemingly unsolvable problems. But this couple proved that putting others first is the only harmonious way to show you care.
This is a heartwarming story of a Malaysian couple, and it’s already on everyone’s lips. It’s about a family matter, concerning a husband and wife, which was shared by their son on Facebook.
The son writes, “My dad has a tough and brute job. Due to this nature of work, he would fall asleep instantly. One thing though, he snores very loud.”
“My mom is a light sleeper. So she would often not want to sleep with my dad in the same room. Hence, my dad would end up sleeping in the living room,” he continued.
“Today, when mom entered the bedroom, she was surprised to see that my dad taped his own mouth shut. He did that because he didn’t want to let himself snore, and wanted to sleep together with mom.”
“The sight was seriously touching. Mom then removed the tape from dad’s mouth!”
Actually, she did not know that her husband was trying to “tell” her something, but only moments later did she realize what her beloved soul mate was trying to say. It’s often the kind thought that counts! And true love always finds a way of expression.
Inspired netizens gave their own experiences on how to deal with family problems.
One netizen wrote: “My husband also snores very loud. However, I never complained before because I understand how hard he’s working to earn money for the family. He loves his family, and will often bring our daughter out whenever he’s free. As long as a family’s happy—that’s what is most important.”
Another netizen wrote, “he snores so he put duct tape over his mouth so he can sleep with his wife instead of sleeping in the living room #truelove”
Yet another Facebook user wrote, “What a great father, but it’s not easy for a wife. After all, it is not his fault.”
This married couple, who has been walking the journey together for many years, came to learn through firsthand experience that putting another before oneself can be the true test of the greatest form of love. Only through actually making an effort can we learn to cherish one another.
