    Nope. My husband is an adult and he can put together stuff for his own lunch. Honestly, if I did pack a lunch for him every day, I would be so mad at him for forgetting it everyday. He goes through the effort of packing a lunch a few times a week, and always forgets it.

    Well, define what “make lunch” means.

    If it means putting leftovers in a container after dinner so that he can bring them to work the next day, yes I do that.  If it means getting up early with him to make him a sandwich, no I don’t do that.

    We try and bring a lunch to work 4 days a week as we’re saving so we roughly take it in turns to make the others but only when we’re making our own. So we’ll make 2 of the same lunch and then the other can take one.

    I do. Every morning. I enjoy doing it for him. It’s one way I show that I love him. He doesn’t expect it, if I stopped he’d make his own lunch without any fuss or comment.

    Sometimes, usually he’ll just ask me to make a sandwich for him and he’ll pack up chips and whatever else. I don’t really see why thats a big deal to anyone? He does all our laundry, it won’t kill me to fix him a peanut butter and jelly sandwich a few times a week.

    WE NEED TO END THE STIGMA AROUND SANDWICHES.

    Nope. He actually gets free lunch at work every day.But if he didn’t, I would not regularly make lunch for him. I usually cook a large batch of something on Sunday and bring it for the week — so I guess if he didn’t get lunch, we could both make a larger batch of something and then both eat it all week 😛

    canhorsegal :  We both usually bring leftovers from the previous nights dinner. So when we are putting away leftovers we “pack our lunches”. I am usually the one to do it.

    He makes breakfast for both of us just about every morning, so yeah, I’ll gladly make him lunch.

    It depends. Sometimes we make our own pre-packed lunches to be ready to go during the week, sometimes I help him out with making some of those lunches and he does the rest, and sometimes we have leftovers from dinner; I usually make dinners because I like cooking.

    MRSsrm85 :  I’m guessing you are an adult, too. Your husband doesn’t do anything for you? Do you make your half of the bed or both? Does one of his tee shirts ever slip into your laundry? Man, WB is weird.

    Yes, I make *both* our lunches whenever I have time or leftovers.  I don’t do this *for him*… I do this to save us money cause it’s cheaper than buying lunch.  I’m the one that cooks in our relationship and takes care of all matters food.

    My friend and I had a conversation years ago where she was laughing at me and saying that the least I could do for a man was make a sandwich. I was absolute that I was not willing to do that.

    Part of that, though, is that I don’t really like to cook or do food prep stuff. I cook well and I cook often enough for my kid not to go hungry but it’s not something I enjoy (my friend, on the other hand, really enjoys cooking so cooking for others isn’t a hardship for her).

    Now, I will make something for myself and set some aside to save for my husband. I will also cook things for parties and gatherings (like a big pot of gumbo or a lasagna or some other elaborate thing that I’d never cook for myself alone). I do not make specific meals for anyone that I am not also going to eat. So- if I’m making myself some lunch, I’ll make enough to share but no- I do not and will not make a lunch specifically for my husband. He’s an excellent cook and we often cook together, which I enjoy.

    canhorsegal :  I voted “Other” because I don’t go out of my way to make DH’s lunches, but I do make them by default because he almost always takes leftovers from dinner…which I make 90% of the time! So in a way, I do! Even if I didn’t I see nothing wrong with it, as long as it not expected and is just a nice gesture!

    We both get free lunch at work, so are lucky.

    If not, no, I would not make him his lunch.

    I can barely make my own. In the past, if I did not get free lunch, I would buy it/go out/bring leftovers.
