A dying author has written a dating profile for her husband of 26 years.

Amy Krouse Rosenthal has ovarian cancer and said she hopes her partner, Jason, can find “another love story”.

Ms Rosenthal is a children’s author and was diagnosed with the illness in 2015. The news coincided with her third child going off to college and came as she was planning to go travelling with her husband.

“I have been married to the most extraordinary man for 26 years. I was planning on at least another 26 together,” she wrote in the New York Times.

“...I have never been on Tinder, Bumble or eHarmony, but I’m going to create a general profile for Jason right here, based on my experience of coexisting in the same house with him for, like, 9,490 days.”

What follows is a list of the things Ms Rosenthal loves about her husband and why she believes he makes a good partner.

At the end of her piece, which is titled You May Want to Marry My Husband, she leaves an “intentional empty space” as “a way of giving you two the fresh start you deserve”.

Ms Rosenthal said she knew she was going to marry her husband the first day she met him but it took him about a year to get to the same point.
