I've been married for a couple of decades now but how did I know I found "the one" in a not typical romantic moment?  That's a great question. The first time I knew he loved me really, was when he fixed the heater in his old car. He just got used to no heater but when I complained about how cold it was in his car. Few weeks later, voila! A heater! 

When you ask couples when they knew they’d found "the one," many will tell you some romantic story about something great their S.O. did for them, but the truth is, sometimes that “a-ha” moment can be anything but romantic. 

Well, now folks on Reddit are sharing the most unromantic moment that proved to them they found their forever person, and while some may make you tear up with jealousy, others may leave you feeling completely grossed out.

Proceed with caution but have fun reading some of these "a-ha! moments! ~grace

  • “I made dinner and dropped it on the floor as I was serving it. I was really upset, until she was like oh well, and scooped it up and started eating.”
  • “I have crazy cat allergies and she has crazy dog allergies, but we take the meds and get the treatment so that we can have a cat for her and a dog (2 actually) for me.”
  • “My wife and I came to understand that we can sleep apart for the sake of comfort and good rest, without it being an expression of emotional distance.”“I was having a panic attack and he was in the bathroom. He called me in there because he could hear me sobbing uncontrollably… the man pulled me down onto his lap while he was pooping and held me while I was sobbing uncontrollably/hyperventilating/laughing the absurdity. We are now engaged.”
  • “When I was pregnant AF my fiancé shaved my legs and cut my toenails for me.”
  • “A few weeks after we were married, my husband and I were laying in bed relaxing, and out of nowhere he picks my wedgie. We both froze, realized what he had done, and burst out laughing like crazy. I mean we’ve always been comfortable with each other but that was new.”
  • “We both had to pee at the same time but only had one bathroom. So I sat down and moved forward and he peed in the gap behind me. He ended up peeing down my back cause the gap was too small. Sounds gross but we laughed about it then and laugh about it now.”
  • “I’m preggers, so my husband has taken up litter box duties without complaint. We have 5 litter boxes.”
  • “I fell down some steps and broke both my arms. My husband wiped my butt and helped me shower/wash my hair… for weeks. For better or worse, that was definitely filed under worse.”
