A woman has revealed the adorable reason why she has taken a bite out of her husband’s sandwich every day of their 41-year marriage (his lunch pictured)
Posting on Facebook, Tracy wrote: ‘Clifford and I have been married almost 41 years and I have made his lunch every working day since day one.
‘On occasion I would join him on the job site and have lunch with him. He made the comment once that lunch tasted better when you share it with someone you love.
‘Soon after that, while fixing his sandwich one night, I took a bite out of it before putting it away.’
She continued: ‘When he got home (long before cell phones), he commented that someone took a bite out of his sandwich.
‘I told him that since I couldn’t join him for lunch, I took a bite so he knew I was joining him.
‘I continue to do this frequently (unless it’s tuna or pimento cheese), and he still says, “saw you joined me for lunch today and it sure was good”.’

More than 23,000 people have ‘liked’ Tracy’s post since she uploaded it earlier this month, with many of the commenters saying they hugely appreciate the simple but sweet gesture.
‘That is so sweet. I just love this,’ one woman wrote.
‘I can see how your love has stayed strong for 41 years, happy anniversary,’ another added.
Many said that they do something similar for their children, so that their kids feel like they are always having lunch with their parents.
‘I love you guys anyway and now I love you even more! That’s how it’s supposed to be and so seldom is,’ one woman wrote.
‘This is so special. You have a role model marriage,’ another added.
