He added how his dad was understanding and supportive of his mum all through the challenging period.

His post gained traction on social media. While many opined that finding a supportive partner is rare, some disagreed.

@ofurenosa_ said:

"Your dad was supportive. It's rare to find supportive people as partners. People are just getting selfish and egocentric by the day."
