Marriage – it’s all about supporting and loving one another! Every couple has a different way of expressing the love they hold for their significant other. And that is precisely what this one wife was doing. All she was looking for were some creative lunch options for her busy husband.
However, the backlash she got was nothing close to what she expected.
Maddie, who is a 22-year-old mom from Sydney, recently asked a Facebook group for a little advice.
Maddie was just looking to change things up a bit for her husband’s lunch because he was tired of the sandwiches.
In the post, she wrote, “I would love to hear what other mums make their hubbies for lunch and snacks throughout the work day. We are getting over sandwiches..”
Hoping the moms on Facebook could help come up with some creative lunch ideas, it didn’t quite go as planned.
A lot of moms on the were extremely unhappy with the idea of her packing lunch for her husband. So, instead of pitching in lunch ideas, they turned on her.
Here’s how the ladies responded to her query:
“Whatever he could be bothered to make himself, which is nothing, so he doesn’t eat lunch. All is fair in love and war.”
“I was married for twenty years and my favorite packed lunch for my husband was called a Get It Yourself with a side order of I’m not your mother.”
“He was a grown single self-sufficient independent man before we met… why does he get lucky (aka get a slave) and I don’t?!?! It’s enough with our children, don’t need another child, need a husband!”
Many women in the group thought that husbands should fend for themselves and it shouldn’t be a problem for them to make their own lunch.
Some even compared her to a 50’s housewife!
But Maddie didn’t hold back from responding. And her response was savage enough to shut them all down.
She wrote, “You should be ashamed of yourselves. You have no idea what my husband does — he works in an extremely physically demanding job, he does housework, he cooks dinner every second night… He is a champion. The least I can do is make him a bloody sandwich. I love my man, he deserves to eat lunch and we can’t afford to eat out… When did it become a crime to look after your man…”
