I am pretty much what most people would consider to be a newlywed. I’ve been married for a year and a half. I love and adore my husband, and he’s a hard worker. I work in a law office so we’re both busy.
Every night, I make my lunch for the following day. He automatically thinks because I’m making my lunch that I’m supposed to make his lunch too. I’m kind of sick of doing it and many times he wants something different than what I am having. I have to go out of my way to whip up something different for him. I’ve told him to make his own lunch but he says if I don’t make it for him, he will be forced to go without food since he doesn’t want to pay to go out to lunch.
Any tips on how I can get my husband to make his own lunch?

The only thing I can tell you is. I actually enjoyed making my husband his lunch. I knew he appreciated it and I would put little surprises in there…like candy or even a little love note. He loved that!
My husband passed away suddenly. I would give anything for him to be here so I COULD make him his lunch.
I hope I put this in perspective for you!
