Guys, are you ok if your gf/future wife doesn’t know how to cook?

- I mean it for people who follow traditional roles plz don’t take this question out of context how it’s 2018 & blah blah

I cook and I seriously think it would be a deal breaker for my husband if I didn’t at least try.
He knows how to cook some things but doesn’t have as much as a cooking repertoire as I do.
We do eat out a few times a week when I’m ill, he doesn’t hold it against me when I don’t because he knows my health influences my abilities to cook and clean and etc, but 80% of the time I cook. If I’m too sick he’ll buy dinner for us on the way home. The worst of it is having ramen for dinner when he can’t stop by and buy something lol 😂

Both of my parents cook, but my dad usually makes dinner. He cooks for his lady...

I always took them as rather traditional, but they've definitely conformed to their own standards. I dig it.

My boyfriend needs to get on those cooking lessons... how are we gonna eat? 🤔

My issue is that anyone says they can't cook. That's a cop out. They don't want to cook. Anyone who has a brain and is physically able to lift and move, is able to cook. It's not hard to follow a recipe. So yeah, I'd be bothered by it because it's a lie. I can cook, but i hate doing it, and my wife doesn't mind. That's why it would be a deal breaker for me. Otherwise be honest and tell me you just don't want to cook.

I hope they take it seriously cause I worked with a woman who never cooked a meal when she was married, and the husband took that woman out to eat every day....they didn't have savings and he got sick & died, she retired when she turned 62 and had to go find another job because she was still going out to eat.

Sure, we’re going to starve cause I can burn ice, but I wouldn’t expect her to have to know how to cook

If memory serves people tend to fall into the roles they're good at.

My hubby Bbq's so he thinks he's a gourmet cook. 😆
