I think I have to appoint a servant in my home or depend on restaurant. Well it is better to put a servant because fast food will make you unhealthy.

Of course I would be disappointed if my wife can not cook. I will ask my wife, to learn to cook. I was lucky, my wife can cook.

Well, Adhyz, when I first got married, I could not cook real well. Neither could he so I figured we were on equal ground and he had no room to critisize. We shared the cooking experience. I can't say it was 50/50 but we both spent time in the kitchen cooking. We learned. We each had certain specialties. He was hands down the breakfast cook and his steaks were amazing. We did a lot of experimenting and sometimes had to order out but it was fun. we are not together anymore but our daughters who are grown now still love going to both housholds for meals.

yes, i think your husband was happy even he knows that you could not cook very well. but you want to learn for cooking i think it`s romantic time when both of you learn cooking together in the kitchen

Yes...fun times. I knew the basics as I'd been in 4H and also we learn some in school but prior to getting married, I had never actually fixed a complete meal. My mother was Queen of the Kitchen and the only thing she ever wanted me in there for was to peel potatoes, chop onions and do dishes. I would say that most of what I knew beyond that was baking desserts. Learning how to cook different dishes and experimenting with new ones was a fun experience for sure.

The worst problem comes in if she know how to cook but she refuses to go in the kitchen to make food. Here, I would try to talk to her nicely (as one mylotter said in second response) but if she don't want to do as I said then it means something else; she is hiding something from me and I would inquire for a good explanation. If she has nothing to say then kitchen war will be declared... no ready made, no buying, no eating what you hate doing, no timing my food... But I would be there to help her every time she needs my help

It's simple, either eat out or get a helper to cook for the family. If not, go back to parent's house, eat with them. They would be more glad for us to join them for meals since it's already a habit since young. If wife doesn't know how to cook, husbands can always do the job too. Wife is there to be pampered, not there to suffer, doing chores all the time, yet being chided for not being able to do something.

I think I would have to cook for myself or go out to eat if that happened. I also think a man should show his wife how to cook if he knows how.

Well, I think I would know if my wife don't cook. How would anyone who is married not know that? But, if that were the case, I would tell her to get a job so we can have extra money to go out and eat.

Simple answer, you can buy. Or, if possible, you can ask your wife to read cook's recipe and practice it. Best,

Well, in that case I know little bit cooking. I will cook for her everyday. I am damn sure after a week, she herself will try to learn cooking. How long you can be without good food :P Jokes apart, I will help her cooking if she is interested else no other option but hire a cook.

Hello adhy82.. :) Lucky that I don’t a wife who cannot cook at all.. And I’m so lucky that my future husband can cook, yeay..! d(^_^)b Me myself cannot cook some food.. I only can cook simple food like rice, omellete, fried rice, fried noodles, instant noodles, and boiling water :)) *sigh* I’m so afraid to put the ingredient into the food.. I’m too afraid if the food tastes so salty or tasteless.. But one thing for sure, my cooking is not a spicy food, cause I hate chilli.. :))

Apparently you love your wife dearly, or you would have not married her. Unfortunately, you didn't do the necessary research before making the proposal, so it's on your shoulders now to remedy the situation with kindness. You are proficient on the computer, so it's easy for you to find a recipe that you might enjoy eating. I suggest you ask your wife out on a date, take her to the grocery and purchase the ingredients for the meal. Then with a smile on your face, return home and both of you have fun cooking it together. Soon, she will pick up the talent of cooking and both of you will add pounds to your bodies!

Hi adhyz: I just would understand it because I don't cook either. It's easy for me because I won't look for a girl to cook for me, I'm looking for the right person to share my life and love each other. So we just need to find a way to work it out. If we both work we can eat on a restaurant, we can also learn to cook so maybe I cook on a day and then she in the following day. It shouldn't be a big issue as long as we love each other. ALVARO

hai starsailovers, nice to meet you...btw, you are the first mexico i meet here.. i guess the main duty of our wife is for caring for us, for serving our needs and sharing each other.. in my country, it`s taboo if the wife can`t cook...it can make their husband can leave them...

My husband knew that I don't know how to cook when we were starting. It was never a problem for him and we got married despite that fact. But I am willing to learn and tried my best to learn for him and for our future children. I am lucky my mother in law is kind and she taught me what she know about cooking. Now, I can cook and I want to learn a new dish everyday. I know that as a wife, it is a responsibility to cook. It is a healthy way to feed a family. It is also a reward for a man when his wife knows how to cook his favorite food. If you find out your wife does not know how to cook... it will not be a problem if she is willing to learn... But if she does not know how to cook and does not want to learn either, then the husband should start working day and night because it will be very expensive eating out everyday.
