So That His Wife Can Sleep, Husband Stands On Flight For 6 Hours

An entrepreneur named Courtney Lee Johnson shared on Twitter this photo of a man standing up on a plane with a woman lying down across a row of 3 seats. According to the caption, the guy apparently “stood up the whole six hours so his wife could sleep. Now that is love.”

As of this writing, the photo has already garnered almost 16,000 likes and almost 3,500 retweets. However, not everyone agrees with Johnson that this is a gesture of love.

Some thought it was romantic, with one Twitter user writing: “I’ve never been THAT in love...can’t wait to be so in love that I even consider that an option lol.”
However, many considered the woman’s actions “selfish”.
“If that is love then I’d rather be lonely,” commented one person, while another said: “Not love but exploitation. She could have just rested her head on his lap. Very inconsiderate.”

How about you? What do you think about this?

I'm going on the offensive and claiming the pooh-poohers must've never worked a day of retail or food service in their lives, and logic clearly isn't their strong point; standing means the husband can answer the call of Nature without having to disturb his wife by getting up.

I also thought she could rest her head on his lap. But, I wonder if she was so motion sick she couldn't handle that or if she truly slept the whole time.
