(Closed) Do you make your fiancé/husband's lunch?

    Yes, all the time.

    No way! This is the 21st century.

    Sometimes, if I have time or it is a special day.

    They make mine.

    They buy their lunch.

    How can a simple question provoke such emotions from the Bee?!

     I don’t tend to make him lunch, we work at the same place and get food provided more often than not but sometimes we (hence WE) have packed leftovers for each other. 

    If he changed his job and took lunch in everyday I’d pack him a lunch damn right (if he wanted one -he has odd eating patterns). Not because he couldn’t cope without me but becuase I love him…and no that does not mean I mother him!!!

    Commenting late – I’ve been making Fiance sandwiches for his lunches every morning for the last month or two. Couple of reasons for this – 1) He is horrible about his alarm clock so to save his life, I now set my alarm and wake him up every morning (4:30am), 2) I’m usually getting up around that time to pee anyways (I’m pregnant) 3) we raise calves and our last lot was very ill and all 10 needed to be bottle fed morning and night. He takes on the brunt of the animal responsibilities while I take care of home, so that means he’s out feeding before he goes leaves for work at 5:30am. I get up and rinse/fill the bottles while he gets dressed, and while he feeds, I make his sandwiches before going back to bed. (SS and I don’t have to be up until 6:30/7 to get ready for work/school). Teamwork makes the dream work!

    Now if only I was smart enough to also pack my and my SS’s lunch at the same time instead of going back to bed for another hour or 2. Hmm…

    I’m a teacher with a decent sized commute. I usually leave the house before DH me I’m in a rush to get ready. He usually “makes” my lunch… which just means he puts my store bought salad and a few snacks in my lunch box.

    However, on school breaks (such as this week for Thanksgiving) I still get up early with my husband to make him breakfast, pack his lunch, and send him off.

    I don’t make my husband’s lunch but I wouldn’t mind doing it for him. We enjoy serving each other out of love.  

    Willingly engaging in good deeds for a husband isn’t a sign that a woman is being subjugated. My husband bends over backwards to make me happy so I certainly don’t mind taking care of him in any way that I can.

    I recently started making my husband lunches to take to work.

    In the past, I would ask him if he wanted me to, and he always told me no, so I never worried about it, or asked again, until a couple months ago.

    He used to go all day without eating. He won’t eat breakfast because he feels nauseous every morning, so he would never eat till he came home at night.

    He loves that I pack a sandwich with snacks for him everyday. It makes me happy to know he isn’t starving all day.

    If I’m making lunches for me in advance, then I might make something for him, or alternatively make enough for him to have (if it is something he would like). Otherwise, he fends for himself.
