Times have changed tremendously and education and career no more remains the domain of men. But it seems times have remained stuck since the Stone Age period where cooking is concerned. Women are an ‘absolute rulers’ in this department rather are ‘made to be’ as long as she doesn’t work in restaurant where ‘chefs’ are mostly men.

Most articles I found on the internet advise men ‘should’ cook to please wife by ‘occasionally’ cooking for the family. I have an issue here. Yes men ‘should’ cook, but ‘before marriage’, for whatever reasons. After marriage—they ‘must’ cook.
Men must cook to build a happy marriage.
Gone are the days when women stayed at home and men went out. With increasing number of women choosing to pursue higher education and a career, juggling personal life with professional has become norm of the day, and cooking a draconian task. Expecting a woman to prepare a full meal all by herself after she gets back from work by around 7 pm leaving behind all her mental and physical stress is outright cruel. So a man must cook alongside his wife.
Maybe preparing half the meal every day or full meal every alternate day or weeks, whatever suits the couple, should do the magic—less stress, better health and more love.
Of course if a woman is a full time homemaker then expecting her husband to cook dinner after he returns from work completely exhausted is unjust. There are exceptions though in such a case. For ex. When the wife gets pregnant wouldn’t it be so unsympathetic of a man to let his wife stand in front of the stove heat for hours? If she can go through the pain of bearing a child for a year, so a man could too, get a little more exhausted, and cook for at least half her pregnancy. Doesn’t this sound fair enough?
Again when the wife falls ill, wouldn’t a man truly earn the love and respect of hers if he serves a hot nutritious meal to her on the bed? Not just that, her heart will soften and she might listen to all his requests at all crazy times! Ahm. Yes women are like that, a bit of display of affection and she is ready to become all yours!
But despite this doable deed there are few men who cook ‘at home’. So how do women make men cook? Sadly not much can be done to teach grown up men. Either they listen temporarily or the relationship turns sour.
But women need not be disheartened! She can ensure that at least her daughters and granddaughters and so on get husbands who cook for them! How? By teaching her sons cooking skills slowly but steadily from the time he turns 3 till the age of eighteen. Thus she ensures that her son, a future husband to a girl, truly make peace with the fact that a house kitchen is NOT just a woman’s department but his as well. And that he adds spice to his marriage by cooking for his wife the way she cooks for him!
