We were cuddling together and I was having a rough time with my mental health. He was being a sweetheart and cuddling me, reassuring me that I was okay and loved. I told him that I knew I was loved and I never have to question that with him. He got quiet and just held me tighter. We had a talk after and he elaborated on how it meant a lot to him that I was so sure of how much he cared since he's had some history with partners questioning him. It was a rough moment for both of us and it was such a sweet connection for us. u/TattooPuddle
When our son was born. My husband isn't an emotional man, he is very, in fact, extremely stoic and very controlled. Before our son was born, I remember asking him if he thought he'd be emotional when the moment came and he said he didn't think he would be. Cue the moment he arrived, I turned to my husband who was sobbing, while telling me how amazing I was. It was the most emotionally vulnerable I'd ever seen him in over seven years of knowing him. An already perfect shared moment in our lives was made better because I saw a pure moment of emotion in him on that day, which perfectly illustrated how much he loved and cared for me and his son. u/GlitteringVersion
We just started dating recently, but we've known each other since we were teenagers. There's been a lot of wholesome moments so far, but my favorite was us taking a dab in his kitchen before we were officially dating. While I was heating mine up I could feel him watching me. I looked up and asked him quietly, "What are you looking at?" He simply whispered, "You." I'd never felt so loved and cherished by someone before and it really did catch me off guard. Honestly, every time he tells me he loves me, it still surprises me. u/DoctorKitten420
Young me asked my first girlfriend (three months in) up for a slow dance in my living room and I put on Charles Trenet's La Mer and she started crying into my shoulder in the middle of the dance, she later said it was the most romantic moment in her life. I just wanted to share a new song I'd found. That was back in 2002 but I still get happiness from that moment to this day. Reddit
I have been with my husband for 18 years and this happened when we were both young, I was 18, and he was 20. My mom was in the hospital getting a hysterectomy. She had the procedure and everything went well. That night around 2 a.m., my aunt showed up at my boyfriend's mom's house where we were. She's screaming at me to get dressed, we have to get down to the hospital, something happened to mom. I'm dressed and gone in less than 5 minutes without saying a word to my boyfriend. Not even 5 minutes after I had gotten into the hospital and started trying to understand what was happening, my boyfriend walked in. He had sped all the way there to make sure he was with me. Long story short, she had a brain aneurysm and was taken off life support 2 days later. It was a crazy time in my life. u/Dogsrulekidsdrule
When we were dating I was young and dumb and had no idea how much alcohol I could handle (not much), and drank a whole bottle of a honey liqueur. I woke up the next morning in his parent's guest room and he was lying on the floor next to me. I asked him why he was there and he said “You kept stopping breathing so I stayed here last night to make sure you were okay”. He never touched me, just made sure I was breathing, all night. Now, we’re married. u/Mellenoire.
Some years in. We were with a bud, and I told how the worst spat we'd had, had gone. And that I still felt bad about it. My wife said, "Actually, that was the day I decided you were the one." What? "Well, we had a disagreement, and you didn't yell or blame me, you were a grown-up about it." Whoa. Something I'd THOUGHT was bad bad bad was actually very good, in the big picture. u/kestenbay
Honestly, there are so many I could say and we’ve only been dating 3 months. I just got a new job that meant I have to work weekends, which is usually the only time we can see each other. I called him before I accepted the job to talk about it and he said we’d be able to work out a weekday to see each other. He said he was proud of me and that he was excited for me. He was so genuinely happy for me and it meant so much to me. I just found out yesterday my grandpa has cancer. I told him, we called and just sat on the phone together. He offered to drive over to my house but I said no because he had worked overtime the whole week and he lives pretty far away. Then he offered to DoorDash me my favorite comfort foods, I also said no to that but the fact that he offered meant a lot to me. Sometimes he’ll just do very little things that show he cares, like getting up to get me some water when I didn’t even ask. u/Lovealltigers
My husband is a stoic man, he prefers to keep his emotions to himself and to show them in private and he’s definitely not dramatic. On our wedding day, we chose not to have a first look before the ceremony. As my Dad and I prepared to walk down the aisle, I was completely unprepared for my soon-to-be husband's reaction as he caught his first glimpse of me. His knees buckled and his eyes welled up with tears, his best man put an arm around his shoulders to steady him. For the first time in our 5 years together I watched him come unraveled emotionally and the whole time with this big smile on his face. By the time we reached him, my dad was all teary-eyed along with half our guests. It was one of the sweetest moments of my life. u/Giannandco
I had shivering and really high fever and I had my room temp set to 90 (f) in Summer 80+ degree weather. On top of that I had blankets upon blankets and jackets etc on me still I was really cold. And I called my husband who was quite far away and just 10 mins drive away from his destination. He took a U-turn drove back and came home. When he came to the room I just saw him closing the door and open his shirt and hop in bed with me. His arm/hug on top of those blankets was that last level of heat I guess I needed or else my body just kept on shivering. And without any complaint, he fell asleep with me even though for him I knew the temp was like being baked in the oven. And he did that throughout whenever my shiver came back without any complaint. u/Old_End5150
