Man Stands For Six Hours On Plane To Let Wife Sleep And People Are Horrified@courtneylj_/Twitter

A photo of a man standing up on a plane in order to let his wife sleep has provoked some seriously strong reactions online.

The photo, shared on Twitter by life coach Courtney Lee Johnson, appears to show a man standing in the aisle of a plane so his wife can lie across all three seats and sleep.

According to Johnson, the husband stood for six hours, as he captioned the photo: This guy stood up the whole 6 hours so his wife could sleep. Now THAT is love.

While some people questioned the validity of the photo – can you ever trust social media?! – others called the woman out for being selfish, while others called the man whipped.

More than 1,000 people weighed in on the debate, while a further 3,000 people retweeted the image and more than 13,000 liked it, at time of writing.

Comments such as she could have still rested her head on his lap, if that is love then Id rather be lonely, and remember this social media, if you are actually going to believe shit like this, then you are on your own, struck the three common points of debate in the replies.

She could have still rested her head on his lap.

Not love but exploitation. She could have just rested her head on his lap. Very inconsiderate.
