There is nothing more wholesome than a pair of romantic partners who have journeyed through life together, who love each other dearly and have never lost sight of what is truly important. We’ve compiled 45 such couples in this slideshow.
Looking good as the decades pass
Doesn’t this couple look like they would be fun to hang out with both now and during the 1970s? Style changes, but being stylish never does.
Marrying your best friend.
This couple actually has a very popular YouTube channel titled “Squirmy and Grubbs” You can follow their adventures here.
Couple coordinates outfits every day
This adorable pair of partners coordinate their outfits every day. That’s a stylish couple right there!
Enjoying a swing!
It doesn’t get more wholesome than this. This couple appears to be enjoying a fun afternoon!
Secretely buying flowers
A good partner is part ninja. They want to make their significant other feel loved and surprise them with affection.
The fun thing about love is that you always have someone to share life’s little adventures with. Sometimes, those life adventures involve chucking things at your husband’s head.
So I’m at a restaurant and just got hit in the back of the head with a straw wrapper. I turned around and immediately a 65+ yr old lady started apologizing saying she was aiming for her husband. Then they both started giggling.
If that’s not me when I’m older idk.

COVID can’t keep us apart
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many couples to be creative with how they support one another. This is pretty adorable.
“Tell my wife I think she’s hot”
The wife in this story might have rolled her eyes but deep down she probably appreciates having such a loving partner, even if his sense of humor can be annoying.
Today at work I was @ drive thru & the man @ the window wanted to pay for the person behind him & he said “tell her I think she’s hot” so she pulls up next and I tell her and she rolls her eyes, smiles, & says “that’s my husband” and if that’s not relationship goals idk what is

Love and hiking
This couple loves each other and going hiking! We figure they’ll be doing the same thing on their 10th anniversary, 20th anniversary, and more.
7 years ago I worked at a small company of about 15 people. I sent an email to all my co-workers one Friday, inviting them on a weekend hike. Only one person came, a guy from the web dev team that I'd hardley spoken to.
Today is our 6th wedding anniversary. We're going hiking.

Returned to Dee
How many times these t-shirts have come in handy, we can’t be sure. Thankfully, the man has been returned to Dee.
I literally helped him find dee. What’d you do today. pic.twitter.com/nJQskZboit

He made it home for Christmas
You have to cherish every moment you have with the people you love.
My dad was admitted to the hospital right before Christmas. We didn’t know if he would make it home at all and especially not for Christmas. This is my parents slow dancing to "I’ll be home for Christmas" on Christmas Day. from pics
This couple really likes to scare each other
Just because you love and care for someone doesn’t mean you don’t want to scare the pants off them sometimes…
Couple loses weight together
Very often partners will motivate each other to be the best versions of themselves because that’s what the other person deserves in a partner.
You know you’ve won at life when…
If you are in your 80s and decide to model forgotten clothes at the laundromat, you win, you win at life. Congrats.

Growing old together means helping each other
Couples that grow old together are partners in the truest sense. This man will do what is needed to do what’s best for his loved one.
I could actually cry! Relationship goals 😭❤️ pic.twitter.com/scCh4zu54h

Somtimes happiness is just this simple
Making someone you love feel good is often as easy as simply telling them how you feel. Even if they already know, it matters.
2020 wasn’t all bad
2020 was tough. The couple here went through it together and somewhere within the very unique year, they decided to tie the knot!
Love overcomes all
Imagine the hardships that this couple has gone through and all the while, they had each other. What a journey they’ve been on.
All this woman wants is for her husband to do well at video games. Either that or she’s just tired of listening to him complain about them.
I have a confession.
When my hubby gets stuck on a part of a video game for a long period of time I will look up the solution on my phone and then give him vague suggestions to push him in the right direction..
I've been doing this for 6 years..

Celebrating 35 years together
She knows she is safe
She might not know who he is all the time, but she knows she is safe with him.
My parents have been married for 34 years. My mom is in the final stages of young onset dementia (diagnosed 5 years ago at 53). My dad cares for her full-time. She doesn’t always remember his name but she knows she is safe with him. If that’s not true love, I don’t know what is. pic.twitter.com/8oW2n4mGza

Uncle Davids like butterscotch rasberry pudding!
Life together can be pretty sweet when at least one person in the relationship can make delcious desserts!
Since you all love my Uncle David so much, here he is with his husband, my other Uncle David, who makes an amazing butterscotch raspberry pudding. pic.twitter.com/fGFdxOgLRU

Planting flowers to ease partner’s depression
Flowers and nature have been shown to ease the symptoms of depression. An adoring partner can also do the same
Loser makes cuppa tea!
This Mario Kart competition has now been going on for over 20 years. That’s commitment.
Candid photos of his wife
There is something so adorable about a man that age playfully snapping shots of his wife. He probably can’t wait to have the pictures developed.
Married for 70 years
If you can get through 70 years of marriage and still have a smile this big on your face, you are a winner.
Just showing off my wife!
Imagine how amazing this man’s Twitter post made his wife feel. What a lovely gesture, Uncle Gabe!
This is not a baby announcement. I just wanted to show off my wife. pic.twitter.com/rlIBrGw3R7

Love means never leaving their side
COVID means many people can’t be by their partner’s side in the hospital. Love means doing everything you can, though.
Your boyfriend isn’t dumb, Tiffany
The reason your boyfriend doesn’t take the metro Tiffany is that he loves you very much.
one time I called my boyfriend dumb cause he took the bus instead of the metro to work (bus takes longer) and he hit me with “I take the bus so I can call u everyday before work I don’t get signal on the metro” and then I realized I am dumb and I think about that a lot

Proud fathers, tired baby
This couple is showing off their growing family. The baby seems uninterested, however.
It’s like Titanic but without the boat or tragedy
Love means so much more than money. Money can’t buy happiness but love can.
He was dirt poor, she was rich. Her family threatened to disown her if she married him. She decided she loved him more than any inheritance and went on to marry him and have two kids. He loved her so much he died holding her hand. Ladies and gentlemen, my grandparents. from MadeMeSmile
Love to the end
We’re all going to go someday. If you’re lucky, you’ll go surrounded by people who love you.
Look, child birth is hard for everyone
This baby created quite the scene on their first day. They’ve already knocked their father out and had their mother in stitches laughing.
Going to prom, getting some exercise
This couple might still be at the start of their time together, but they are off to a very good start.
But did your prom date run 5.5 miles to ask you pic.twitter.com/1cp2R2IvTp

She doesn’t like flowers
Not every girl likes flowers. Some girls like chicken nuggets. A good boyfriend will adjust.
I told him I didn't like flowers, so he got me a bouquet of chicken nuggets, and I pretty much became the happiest girl on the planet pic.twitter.com/H6zLpud8wW

This couple and their cockroach
You have to keep things interesting and Freddie the cockroach does the trick for this couple.
The nail polish on this man’s pinky finger is a symbol of how much he loves his wife.
Sometimes, albeit not often, love means surfing a city street on a rainy day with the person you care most for.
How we express affection
Sometimes people express affection differently. It might take a bit of an adjustment to make sure each other knows they are cared for.
We brought you some ducks
This couple has been together for 40 years and when someone they know likes ducks, they give them ducks.
Reposting because I deleted this last night because reasons. Two of my clients, a couple who have been together for over 40 years, found out that I like ducks. So they stopped by my office for the sole purpose of bringing me every duck they owned. from aww
Marrying your best friend
Many couples are lucky enough to have married their best friends. These two are one such couple.
Hitting on your partner at a bar
We think she probably gave out her digits. She might think her boyfriend is ridiculous but she probably also knows he’s pretty sweet.
A random girl at the bar came up to me and told me this guy wanted my number. I asked her what guy and she pointed to my boyfriend. Lol he’s ridiculous

Well, now you know why
This man took a photo of his girlfriend on every date they went on. Then he surprised her with a photobook.
My boyfriend has taken a picture of me on every single date we’ve been on in the last year. I didn’t know why but for our anniversary he gave me this book😭😍 pic.twitter.com/MHkxqNmxWC

If this product is ever in stores…
An app that lets you know whenever your partner wants attention? Some might be frightened by that idea but others will think it’s sweet.
you guys. my little sister’s boyfriend is a programmer. for her birthday he made her an app that has a button on it and when she presses the button, a light starts to blink in his room to let him know that she wants attention.
