Romance and love aren't about flowers and grand gestures.

For some couples, it's about standing for the entire duration of a six-hour flight so your wife can use the row of seats to get some sleep.

One woman recently witnessed this while on board a plane and shared a photo of the man's selfless act.

Not everyone was ok with it though. And for every person who agreed it was a lovely thing to do, another person would either scoff or be cynical.

"If that is love then I rather be lonely," commented one man.

"That's not love, his wife is selfish and he is weak," fumed another.

And, of course, there was a reference to the most famous broken door in cinematic history, with one woman commenting:

"Sounds like that Rose and Jack situation from titanic. So silly.'

Someone else even suggested the picture had been taken out of context, writing: "Lie. They don’t let you stand in the aisle for 5 minutes, let alone 6 hours. Come on man."

But as one person pointed out, there could be more to the story than we realise.

Perhaps the lady in the photo had been unwell and was in need of some rest?

Maybe her husband was in the dog house over something?

Either way, as lovely as this is, we're not sure we'd stand for six hours!
