If you don’t like bacon, you’re on the wrong Website!
Everyone’s heard the phrase “bringing home the bacon”, assuming it has something to do with money. It actually refers to bacon and being a good husband.
In 12th century England a church in town of Dunmow promised a side of bacon to any married man who could swear before God that he had not quarreled with his wife for a year and a day. A husband who could bring home the bacon was obviously considered a great catch, showing self control and patience.
So forget about chocolates or flowers, historically the ladies’ love a man who can bring home the bacon!
