Should husbands share the cooking duty for the household?
Or would they burn water?
They could share in the responsibility only if they can cook, or learn how to cook. I don't see the responsibilities in a household as being gender specific.
I agree with Ytsenoh. If a husband can cook or learn - heck yes he should share kitchen duties! My own husband didn't cook a lot when we dated, but he began learning on his own. Now he is an awesome cook! The kids and I love it when he gets creative in the kitchen.
Burgers sound boring until he mixes them up and his lasagna is going to be the death of my waistband one day.
In my house, my husband does a majority of the cooking.
You'd never starve to death on food I cook, but cooking is his artform.....
With more and more women actively employed full time, the previously defined roles in the home have been altered. The situation is a "needs be" one with men having to step up and help out if they are going to require their wives to hold down a job too.
Most men can learn the skills needed and with time can serve up perfectly adequate meals. Practice makes perfect they say.
It's a decision to be made by each couple, and not be defined by social stereotypes anymore.
If I let my husband cook, we would starve. I did teach my sons to cook though and they are very good cooks. One of them has cooked for a living at an Applebees. My stepson used to impress his girlfriends when he made manicotti, which I taught him to make. Another of my sons cooks for his family every day. I also taught his wife to cook. Her mother can't cook and so she never learned. She is now a fairly good cook but he still cooks better.
My third son cooks for girls all the time and he would rather cook for a girl than take them out to eat. It costs him a lot less to really impress a girl. They enjoy him cooking for them.
If a man can be a true help in the kitchen............I have NO beef with that.
Go forward young family, or adapting older one...............
MY hubby...............STAY OUT OF MY KITCHEN................the mess you leave behind is not worth an over fried T-bone and wilted salad.
I will cook dinner, while you mow the lawn..............
just sometimes, when the rain is approaching...........just grab the clothes off of the line!
Just like, I 'sometimes' bother to cover your piston rings from the rain. ( and, yeah, I still remember the lecture from 25 years ago, about keeping them in their order.)............I do not invade your "shed"...do not tinker with your welder, your saws, your vices, your tachs, your chargers, your generators, your air compressors..........so, stay the hell out of my " kitchen"..........I am a PRO here.
DO NOT TOUCH MY MEAT SLICER!
just do not do it and expect to pull up another tomorrow.............
Seriously.........yes, my hubby could " cook " enough to keep the family fed........but then, he might expect me to lay water pipes, lay electrial lines, crawl up under the house and deal with dead puppies or mice..........
What ever works in your family.........that is all that matters........
We are each comfortable within our accepted roles.
Just, accept the role that you accept......it will last for many years.
If you know how to cook, i say cook, regardless. And if you dont know how to cook, its never too late to indulge in some learning. Cooking is fun & you can eat it too. i know some wonderful who are husbands and fathers that are Super terrific cooks!.
All men should be able to cook and if they can't they should learn. Maybe mums should start teaching their sons as well as their daughters. I'm lucky my other half is a good cook.
I'm a bit of a control freak when it comes to the cooking so I usually don't let me husband cook except for breakfast which he is really good at. Usually I cook dinner and he does the dishes. It's a win win at least for me because I love to cook but not dish pan hands.
I do the cooking AND the dishes. I only wish I could convince my wife to do the dishes! Bless her heart.
My rule is "The cook never does the dishes"
I don't do the skilled job of cooking and the skivying of washing up.
My guy better help out once in awhile! We both have full time jobs. We share the responsibilities. I normally do most of the cooking anyway, but once in awhile he would pitch in and make something simple like pasta. The ONLY time that I don't want him in the kitchen is when I am baking. :-)
my husband and I share cooking duties always. He's a great cook and as I write this, he's preparing grilled mahi-mahi!!! Last night he made beer can chicken and it was outrageous

Should a man help out in the kitchen or with other chores around the house?Studies have shown that most women are displeased with their husbands because the said husbands do not help with household chores no matter how little, leaving everything to the wife.

Are men or women better cooks?I do all of the cooking in the house, except for a couple of ethnic dishes my wife will make. I love being in the kitchen concocting new meals and experimenting with recipes. It seems as though there are many more male chefs than female. I wonder why?

Who does the majority of cooking in your household, you or your significant other?Many cultures or families have well defined roles of 'who belongs' in the kitchen...what is your experience? Do you cook and your partner stays out of your domain or vice versa?

Does a man who cooks make any difference in the way you perceive him?Does this make your attraction stronger for him?Do you think "it is about time he helps out?"Do you see this as an invasion into a woman's area of expertise?ORDo you think "a man who cooks is sexy."Do you think...

I meet a lot of women who consider this insulting or at least an outdated way of thinking but why is it so wrong?

What is more romantic, if a man takes a woman out for dinner or if he cooks for her?
