While a lot of people like to think that love comes before marriage, oftentimes it doesn't always work out that way. Sometimes people get married because of different pressures and expectations put on them by society and their families—but that doesn't mean you can't find love in this kind of situation. Such was the case with one Redditor who shared his touching AF love story to r/relationships that has since gone hugely viral. 

To make a long story short, a 29-year-old gay businessman married his 26-year-old family friend (who happens to be a trans man) out of convenience so that both of their traditional Asian families would leave them alone and let them live their lives. The two moved in together, agreeing to do their own thing, but as the time has gone on, the two started getting closer and closer to each other. And now, the 29-year-old is starting to fall more and more in love with his husband. (We know, this unconventional, whirlwind romance it too cute for words, and we literally can't handle how cute it all is!!!)

The businessman took to Reddit to ask for advice on what to do and he was met with an onslaught of support. 

"Talk to him. Tell him what you’re feeling. Ask if he feels the same way," one commenter offered up as advice. "Let him know that you’re open to having a more intimate relationship (note: I don’t mean necessarily sexual. Intimacy is much more than sex). It seems he’s feeling something too since he’s cuddling you. Communication is everything. Just close your eyes and jump, man. You got this."

"I am so hooked on this story, I need all the updates. Sorry to hear you are so stressed but my god does it make a good movie, I have butterflies for you," wrote another. "You mentioned you’re not good at talking about emotion but you are a gestures and actions kind of person, is there anything you can do that would be romantic for the two of you? Like maybe make a dinner date while being stuck indoors. If you have taken his signals (which from your post, he’s totally into you) the wrong way you could pass it off as just a nice thing to do for roommate/friend kind of thing. I know you are stressing but please keep us updated. Best of luck. We’re all rooting for you."

People on Twitter were also rooting for the married pair to start falling in love with each other: 

If Hollywood needs an idea for the new epic, queer romance film of the century, THIS. IS. IT.
