Long-term relationships always have their ups and downs, but every so often something will happen that reminds you exactly why you're with them.

Marriage is often associated with routine and the mundane but one enamoured wife was left surprised by a sweet gesture from her husband.

The woman shared that she recently discovered that her husband brags about her to his childhood friends, which has changed her perception of him.

She explained her husband is still in contact with his school friends via online communities and gaming platforms.

One day her husband left the room during a call and she spoke to one of his friends to pass the time.

She was left surprised by the conversation and realised her husband had been talking about her more than she realised.

She said: “I made small talk with his friend while he was gone, and he asked me about a project I'd been working on.

“When I asked how he knew about that, he said that my husband is always talking about me and bragging about my cooking and a lot of other stuff that I do.”

The post on Reddit added: “He said it always amazed them because he has always been a generally sarcastic guy and disguises his compliments as insults when talking about anyone else but me.

“10 years of marriage, and I love this guy more than ever.”

One user said in the comments: “This is my husband, he doesn't like emotions but if you get him a bit tipsy he's all hugs and kisses.”

A second hopeful comment said: “This is what I hope to find one day. All the money in the world can’t buy it.”

In response, another user replied: “As someone who feels they have this, you can’t find it, it finds you.”
