I've been making hubby's lunch since we first moved in together. We'd been together about 8 months and when i moved in, I realised he was buying fried chicken everyday for both his breakfast break and lunch. I've been packing him sandwiches since then. I vary what goes on the sandwiches but he takes 3 of those, a le snack, 2 pieces of fruit and a yoghurt. We don't have kids yet but I do feel like I'm all over this school lunch thing when the time comes lol

I used to pack my fiances lunches and would like to get back into it. Making it whilst the kids make their own lunches is a great idea I haven't even thought of that. The lunches that he would buy at his work some of them aren't too bad actually, but add the coffee and banana bread from the local cafe and you have a spending of at least $20 a day. One week I counted that he had spent $120 on lunches. That's a lot of money. What would I do with $120 a month. Lol. I like making his lunches the only thing I don't like is that he is very picky with the way that I make the sandwiches. He likes everything in sperate sand which bags, I always pack an ice block inside the bag (he has a 2 compartment lunch bag from the post office). The ice block goes in the bottom compartment with the flat packed Lil salads, ham and fruit. The bread and snacks are at the top. I used to boil 2 eggs swell so that he gets some protein as well, but recently he wants to become a vegetarian, which is great. It definitely will keep me on my toes with the cooking. I used to be very bad at cooking, not so much these days, but I like to stick to "familiar waters" so to speak lol. When I have made a cake I would have packed some of that also. I really should get back into it again, it does save money and its healthier. Im already cooking and working a 100k job being a sahm (there was study conducted by mint.com that showed this), lol. My fiancé earns more than that so how can I keep up with him? Making his lunches makes me feel like I am contributing to our family. I know this sounds weird and all, I feel like if I packed everyone's lunches including my own lunch, I wouldn't feel as left out of it all. Lol. Since my job is hard aswell. (Telling the kids to hurry up and get dressed in the morning is tough).

I don't but don't see the big deal with people who do. The only time it irks me is if partners do it out of a sense of obligation, because its expected/demanded of them or if its because their DH pleads incompetence and passes the buck on taking responsibility for their own health and eating habits.
But if a partner does it because they want to, it's a nice thing to do or they're already making lunches anyway, then I don't see what the big deal is. DH makes me a cup of tea almost every single night. Not because of any other reason than he likes to (and because he makes a better cup of tea than me, which is strange given I make and drink a few cups a day).

I do, I always did even when I worked (tho less consistently). I think its nice... Maybe the ladies in your office are not married...
doesnt have to be anything fancy, a sandwich or leftovers, and it saves us lots of money because I know DH wouldn't make his own lunch and would just buy it.
