The emotional fanfare of finding that special someone is aspirational, and we love to hear romantic tales from people and their soulmates.

But one story of a woman who takes a bite of her husband's sandwich every day for one heartbreaking reason has the internet feeling extra soppy today...

Finding love is something most of us hope for.

But the searching can make it seem like it's basically an impossibility - it can be an unforgiving jungle out there, folks!

Dating is a rollercoaster, to say the least.

In fact, romantic life can often just feel like a string of missed opportunities as you search and search for "the one."

Looking for love can be exhausting.

But once you find it, it really does make every part of life seem a little bit brighter.

Being in a happy relationship is many people's aim.

Finding the person who's a perfect fit, and that you can stay committed to for a long time, can make it feel like your life is moving in the right direction.

Plus, PDAs are nice.

Having someone to hug and kiss (and who hugs and kisses you right back) is a pretty sweet feeling. And if you say it isn't, you're just lying to yourself.

And, for the majority of couples, they like to take their commitment a step further.

Becoming engaged to be married is one way that many choose to express the seriousness of their love for one another.

Many of us have marriage in our life plan.

Living life with your soulmate is all any of us could hope for!

But one story of a married couple has broken the internet this week.

It's too cute for words!

This is Tracy Howell from Texas.

She's been with her husband, Clifford, for over forty years - and she recently shared one special tradition that she thinks has kept them together for all those years.

She explained how, on occasion, she would join him for his lunch break at work...

And how he had noted that "lunch tasted better when you share it with someone you love." "Soon after that, while fixing his sandwich one night, I took a bite out of it before putting it away. When he got home (long before cell phones) he commented that someone took a bite out of his sandwich. I told him that since I couldn’t join him for lunch, I took a bite so he knew I was joining him."

And, ever since, Tracy has taken a small bite out of Clifford's lunch...

Just so he knew she'd be there with him. "I continue to do this frequently (unless it’s tuna or pimento cheese) and he still says, 'saw you joined me for lunch today and it sure was good.'" So cute! Fancy another adorable romantic story? Scroll on ...
