Can you be a good wife and not cook?

I think you can. I have always been a worker bee. I can cook but my husband perfers to do so. He enjoys making the food because he has diabetes so he can monitor what goes in the dishes he eats. Also we always get a balanced meal. I pick up the slack in that I work long hours and bring home a nice check. I also do a lot of other stuff around the house. I don't think culinary skills shold equate to marraige material.

Hi Tika Talk, My husband knows how to cook few meals, more on frying and grilling but I do not always allow him to do so. I prefer to do the cooking myself. I feel better that way but I also believe that it's not supposed to be a guaranteed part of the package. A wife may choose not to do so if she wishes and no husband should obligate a wife to do otherwise. For my part, I am most happy to hear my husband and kids appreciate my cooking each day. It somehow boosts my self esteem. Have a nice day!

I have to agree with you. I have to admit that I'm not much of a cook. My husband is more of the cook. We do try to cook together though. Although I don't really cook a lot, I do think that I am a good wife. My husband has certainly told me that I am.

I have to agree! One of my best friends does all the cooking when he's home. His wife can cook, but she defers to him when he's home from work. I think that cooking doesn't matter in many happy marriages. Few people these days fall in love because of cooking skills! :-)
