We all knows that the wife and the husband are both go out to working.They also both work hard and busy,so many of them have little time to stay at home.So more and more people will eat outside instead eat the dinner that was did by their wives.Do you eat outside everyday?Do you want to eaat at home with your wife?How often do your wives cook?I think every husband want to eat at home.

My family and I eat at home every night. It costs to much to go out and eat all the time. My husband and I take turns cooking. We make go out a couple times a month to eat.

Ah assumptions. Not every one belongs to two income families. Now I have always cooked at home, except when we get invited out for dinner, and also except when we go out for lunch because we will not get home on time, unless we are on vacation. It is cheaper to eat at home and you can really save money that way.

I think it's no only cheap but also it can make all the famliy members get together and communication.That is the most important.

We always eat at home. Every once and a while we will go out to eat but its together. Either my husband will cook before I get home from work, or I will cook when I am off. I think it gives us time to recoup from the busy day when we sit down together and eat food in the comfort of our home.

Both my husband and I work full-time. But, I still come home and cook dinner. I cook dinner Monday through Friday and then it is up to my husband to provide our dinners on the weekends...unless we just eat leftovers from the week. I take the weekends off from cooking because, I don't want to get burned-out. It would be like if you worked 7 days a week. You need a break so, come Monday you can get back into the groove from your short break from the norm. But, most of the women I know cook less than they go out.

We eat at home everyday because we can not afford to go out to eat. Eating out costs so much!! So we save our money for other things and eat at home for much less.

Rarely, I prefer to have dinner outside because I am in full job and I really dislike washing dishware.

Since I have to work in daytime, so it'll be late if I cook at night. Therefore, usually my mom will cook at usual. And I will try to cook something interesting at weekends.

You are so luck that you can let your mother cook for you!I think many people couldn't now.

Dear Lishiwei, You only speak of wives cooking. If both husband and wife work equal number of hours, come home at the same time and have lots of things to do why do you think the wife should be the one who cooks a meal. I agree home cooked meals are better for you and healthier. How about the husband learning to cook simple meals. How about when both come home they prepare dinner together? My son and his wife both work, whoever comes home first starts dinner and on weekends it is usually my son who prepares the meals. They are a very happy couple.

When I go back to home from the college, I will perpare the dishes for my family everyday. For at that time, i am the only free one in the family, spending my time and energy for them is needed. But to say the truth, my cooking skill is not good, so usually in the weekends, my mother cook for my family.

I cook at home almost every day. I am usually the one to cook dinner. But sometimes my daughter will help but usually only if I ask her to. She is an adult but in some ways she is still a little girl and wants her mommy's cooking, or she is just too lazy, I haven't quite figured it out yet.

on workdays, I always eat outside cause i already get home at 9 PM and so is my wife. As a husband, of course i do want to eat at home, but at my situation..it probably impossible.. Sometime when i am at home (weekend)..I do cook together with my wife..my favourite are "mie goreng (fried noodle)" and "nasi goreng (fried rice)" ala indonesia... taste so good...

Hmmm. Around here itis actually the MAN who cooks. We would never afford to eat out every day. It is not normal at all to eat out often here. Making a meal does really not take that long. Unless you, housband, requires a complicated meal every day. Maybe it would be easier if you were to share?

I cook at home often, and I invite guests for meals often as well, which is unusual where I'm living in Spain. I love to hostess and cook though. Yesterday I made a cous-cous vegetable soup, a little spicey, and baked apples with a little bit of cream and cinammon on the side. Last week I had a dinner party and made home made bread, gnocchi, lasagna and caprese salad (fresh mozarella, basil and tomatoes).....and cake for dessert. It was a birthday celebration for a coworker. Even as much as I love cooking, sometimes its stressful to have to come home and think about what to make, and my husband doesn't cook much, and since I like to cook so much is always trying to fall back on the escuse that I'm a good cook, and he doesn't know what foods to combine or how to prepare them. On days I'm busy we eat lots of salads and omelettes, because these are easy and fast to prepare.

I have to cook everyday. On certain occasions my husband does get into the kitchen as he cooks well too. But we do eat outside once a week. That is just for a change. But my husband likes to eat at home.
