What If Your Wife Can't Cook?

They say the stomach is the way to a man's heart and it has been proven to be true.

But nowadays ladies don't even go close to the kitchen talkless of knowing what to do there. So guys what would you do if after getting married to the lady of your dreams you find out that she doesn't know how to cook. would you send her packing or teach her (that's if you know) how to cook, or will you send her back to her parents or guardian to learn from them. what would you do?

This was why Festus Keyamo divorce his wife, for me i cant even date a lady dat can cook talkless of marrying her, infact am saying this without apology any lady dat doesnt know how to cook is irresponsible, what will she say she was doing during her youthful age, she was busy watching home videos or she use to be momy's pet. I dont like hearing this

I hope that is not a deal breaker for you poster,

Cooking is not a big deal, but if you must have a cooking wife, then seek one!

What if my wife can't cook? And i can cook, it therefore means i will do the cooking sometimes becuase for me i like cooking. I think the problem is not what if my wife can't cook but what if she does'nt want to know how to cook? There and then we will have a problem becuase i will not be around all the time to be doing the cooking.

Like i do tell any girl that want to listen, men are like babies the moment you are complaining of one thing they are doing another but a good mother must know how to handle her kids, that is how it is with a woman who cannot cook, be ready to learn, be happy cooking for your family, becuase that is your moral obligation. Well, even though she can't cook, she is still my wife and my wife she will continue to be. Who told you that i am perfect?

Mula, most of these upcoming generation girls will be glad to toe ur footsteps, and come to think of it, why is it that ugly men ain't troublesome

A woman should know how to cook thoh. Maybe not everything but at least some meals b4 venturing matrimony.

That doesn't mean men should be lazy about it because the day she happens to be indisposed, the man should be able to help out.

Marriage is coming together of two different people from two different background. Your wife knows how to cook, but just that what you call good cooking might not be a norm in her background. What she got used to in her parents house may not be what you eat in your own house. The answer is teach her what you want or better still send her to a cooking school.

Lol, funny one this.

If my wife / girlfriend can't cook, then I'll cook. I'm quite an independent sort, I don't need a woman to cook and clean for me.

As for housework, either of us do it - all depends on who gets home from work first.

I am raised in America and i think this.

If the wife cant cook, she should learn. If the husband cant cook, he should learn as well.

You see, one needs to be self sufficent. God forbid something happend to the other person. One needs to learn the skills to survive as a independent person. If a man or a woman does not know how to cook, he should learn how, whose responsability it is to cook the meals depends on the couple.

I hope everyone knows that all western women do not think the way Mula thinks. I am an American and am traditional in my mind set. If a wife cannot cook, she absolutely needs to learn. To be a responsible wife you need to handle finances well. Eating out is very expensive. Try tracking for a whole month what it would cost to eat all your meals at a restaurant and see what you are spending. Your husband will appreciate your attention given to the finances.

@ JeSoul

please be reasonable. i'm not saying a woman's place is in the kitchen. even if she's the president, she still has to submit to her husband (that's what the bible says). if a woman can't cook, do house chores or/and take care of her family, she as useless as a man who can't provide for his family. So get that into your chicken brain.

I wonder o!

Why do some people always pick fight over isssues that are meant to be jokingly addressed? JeSoul, why are you so rigid to issues like this?

Okay, please contribute something that u think is applicable to 21st Century so that Naija will move forward?

Aha, na wah for some people sef.

well if my wife can not cook that means that first my frend will neva be invited to that house until she perfects herself in that aspect. but i dont even gthink i will even get close to someone that even know how to cook very well.Infact, i should think cooking will be one of the things that will surely determine whether we are compatible or not. For me food comes before even, She u get?

, and this is why Nigeria remains a backward country! The mere fact that someone asked this question. It's the 21st century, and you're still saying a woman's place in is the kitchen and doing housework.

This is why Nigeria is what it is, it doesn't value its women beyond the menial things, men have been running the country and where has that gotten us?

lemme ask, What if your husband is an who asks silly, primitive questions like this?

It's sad.

I'm sure the guy knew this before he married her. He just didn't wake up and decide to marry her. If he knew that she couldn't cook and married her all the same, then i am assuming he had a plan B in mind. It would have been nice to get a response from a guy that actually married a wife that couldn't cook. Question- would you consider making Indomie cooking?

Anyways, in the age of fast food joints either elegant or mama poot, or packaged foods from supermarkets, cooking is fast becoming a lost art.

I personally know how to cook and enjoy it, if the love of my life can't cook i will simply put on my apron and teach her, but this must have occured before marriage.

What some people write baffles me sometimes, I don't care what a man tells you while you are courting as history has had it from older people that have been married for several years they said that once you start living together years after years things become different.

If you could endure all those hardship and discipline to acquire such education as you have (qualification irrelevant) why not invest few weeks and learn how to cook if it's important to your future union. Afterall, if it's to earn money or part of interview to secure a great job there are many that would take a few weeks course on it. For most fellow brothers it's important that wife to be knows how to cook, except few of us that can cook even if it doesn't taste that greatl (lol) or that are not so big on it, cook or no cook, she has to be clean, I can't stand a dirty woman.

If she is willing to learn, no problem. I'll employ all means possible to ensure she learns. On the other hand, if she does not want to learn, there will problems.

There was this woman who didn't know how to cook, but the husband's siblings usually helped her out.So one day, when they were to cook they suddenly disappeared into thin air in order to teach the woman a lesson.She cried and cried so when the husband returned he taught her.This is happened in the 60's.

Love covers a multitude of sins.So since the marriage must work,you've got to teach her.
