"Ehn, I don't know how to cook. Sue me"
That's what my friend blurted out some nights ago. She explains that she has tried but it just doesn't werk for her. "I've already said that my husband must be ready to hire a cook or live on take-out".
A couple of weeks back I went on a date with ...... a guy. Lol. He told me that one of the reasons things ended with his Ex was her refusal or inability (he's not sure which) to cook. They'd dated for four years and baby girl never cooked, not even once. He said what worried him was that she didn't cook for herself either. She lived on take-outs and pastry.
I've heard guys say that they can't marry a woman who can't cook. You'll hear stuff like top 3 requirements for wifey: God-fearing, a good cook, great in bed.
Yet, there are some fantastic women who don't or can't cook. One told me of how her husband first tasted her food after the wedding. She refused to cook or do any domestic chore for him beforehand. Yet, he married her regardless. This also got me thinking.
I guess some of us don't bother to show men all our skills anymore because we've played the domestic goddess before and it got us nowhere! You remember that Ex whose room you cleaned daily, whose laundry you did, whose food you cooked slavishly after swatting away flies at the market for the last two hours.... Yeah, so some have vowed never to do all that till he puts a ring on it.
Question is, if she doesn't want to cook till he puts a ring on it, and he doesn't want to put a ring on it till she cooks, what's the way forward?
Men, how important is it for your woman to (know how to) cook?
And which would you rather. Great in bed or Great in the kitchen???
