Do you think wife that should learn how to cook?

July 22, 2008 6:39pm CST
I am a student and study at university sabah.Sometimes when iam tired study or getting pressure from study , i will lay on the bed and think my future wife.For me , i really hope my future wife know how to cook.Because i really hate eat outside so when i back from work in future hopefully i can see a table of food at there.So i will not feel tired again.And in the weekend maybe i can cook with my wife in future because i love cooking.hehe.Maybe it is a dream for me only.Then do you think that wife should learn how to cook?

Hi there sabahking I think that if you are out working and your wife is looking after the home then I don't see why she shouldn't have a meal on the table for you for when you get home. If she too works then I think you should share the responsibility of cooking the evening meal.

Wow! It's good to hear a guy visualizing his future. And dreaming of your wife means that you really want to have a very nice family in the future. Well, I'm a wife and I believe every wife should learn how to cook. As there's a saying.."The way to a man's heart is through his stomach" and that is true in my married life. My hubby wants to see me cooking. And he loves what I cook. Goodluck on your dreams! Keep on dreaming..

Sabah, it's very normal for wife to cook. Girls learn it during their early days. Unless your going to marry a girl who's parents are very wealthy. Chances are she doesn't know a thing about cooking. Well, there's always school for cooking and recipes to learn, right? Good luck with your studies.

I think that not only the wife should learn how to cook, the husband too. It's better to know 1 more thing. We can survive independently with knowing a lot of thing. I learnt cooking from my mother,she taught me a lot. I never wonder that I could learn a lot. I learnt from helping my mother to cook. I was thinking to lighten my mother's burden by helping her. So lucky, from helping her, I learnt a lot.

I think it all depends.Wives in my country always should learn some cooking because most of men only know how to cook fast food.But now some women also don't cook,they are too busy with their business that they have no time to do cooking and of course cooking is very tiring.So the problem all depends now and I think if the family accept,women don't cook also shouldn't be blamed.Have a nice day!

Yes all girls should learn to cook as it is a very important skill. Boys too should learn to cook as it will be useful to them If both of you are working you can take turns to cook. I don't like eating outside food too. I prefer my own cooking. Sometimes due to work nature I am forced to eat outside food. On my off days I do my own cooking and also on certain shift I cooked my own food.

Well I guess you what you need right now is study harder than thinking of your future wife. If you do that maybe in time God will provide you a good wife. Focus one thing at a time and eventually when you have reach your goal in life everything will come in place for you.

I think this is a must to be a good wife. A wife should at least learn to cook some simple dishes or something which the husband likes to eat. We can always give surprises through our dishes sometimes. When the husband reaches home from work,tired and a warm dinner which is cooked by the wife is waiting there for him,I think he will love his wife more and the relationship will be closer.

I think every wife should learn how to cook specially if they are staying in the house and doesn't work.but still in my opinion every woman should learn how to cook because the way to a man's heart is thru his stomach.Believe me it works because i love to cook for my husband and i am bless because he like most of my recipes.

Hi friend, Its really surprised me by seeing your discussion.Now a days girls are becoming busy as with that of boys.They are also doing jobs with that of boys and they are equally importantly studying like that of boys. Bascially from myside i don't agree with you.Its not compulsory that a wife should have to know how to cook.Now a days even boys are able to cook and i think after marriage you and your wife should mutually have a plan to cook.Even you can also give guidance to her as how to cook.If you really want a nice cooking women than it is better to keep a girl who is good in it and not the girl who is good in understanding you and who is good in studies and don't waste ones life because of enjoyment. Have a nice day.

I wouldn't care much because it doesn't really matter to me. they will learn once you try to step into the kitchen and cook and all the others say that she should be ashamed of such an act. ... LOL.. I was just saying it. Well, I wouldn't really care if she cooked or not, but it would be a relief cos once in a while i can give my kids some splash with a change in the way of cooking. I know a bit of cooking and I'm making sure that I learn more. bourne

Do I think ? I insist that the wife should learn and be able to cook. The right food. The tangy, spicy, taste of home made food. Fresh. Hot. Served at convenient timmings.Being at home, a housewife, has all the time to learn, experiment and specialise in her "cooking" department of the Home. A good wife that cooks good food helps children grow faster, healthier and intelligently.

Most woman know how to cook from learning from their mothers. Me on the other hand I didn't have someone to show me..I pretty much learn on my own. I would love to have some nice recipes and know some cooking secrets!! At the same time you shouldn't expect the wife to cook all the time. Unless she stays home and you work. That would be nice for you two to cook together on the weekends...you two can bond!! Take care!!

I think its better for both the male and the female to be able to cook,then that fair.Why should there always be one that cooks?

Hello sabah.Women usually have this inclination to cooking,it just comes out on different ages and stages.Some learn fast early and some learn slow and late.Some born with silver spoon can cook also.When you are ready to be on that stage and situation make sure you ask the girl about her hobbies.If she is not the cooking wife type maybe her love for you will push her to learn how to cook.Right now you've got to concentrate on studying and enjoy being bachelor.

Good luck on your plans for getting a wife who can cook. Most girls like to cook so I would not think it too difficult to find one to be your wife. You could try learning to cook too. It might be fun and having cooking skills might make you an attractive choice for a husband.
