For guys, all that counts from your wife is if she can cook a decent meal, right?

Sana MAK | 7 years ago

So lets say you have a professionally educated wife. Regardless of how smart she is, at the end of the day you WILL expect her to be able cook up a decent meal, right?

And that's all what will count, hai na?

i find the question pretty judgmental... especially from the final word 'right' ...
and in case this was true universally, could it be argued upon, i mean then that would be the case of 'just how they are made'. :P
lol @ patti patni

finally, a girl who thinks she 'should' cook.. the feminists have affected the brains of many! :P
Ali Iqbal | 7 years ago
Nahi I'm not a feminist! Infact, I do sincerely believe that irrespective of whatever education your wife might have, it IS her duty to fix a decent meal at the end of the day. I mean... that's how the world works :)
Some women (& men too) tend to argue with this - whereby the culinary skills should be inversely proportional to a woman's education :p
Sana MAK | 7 years ago
o comon sana, i wasnt implicating anyone :)
not you atleast :P
Ali Iqbal | 7 years ago
Lol yes.. The guy should be fully supportive while she learns.. And I agree with Ali, the feminists really have done that :P
Usama Hafeez | 7 years ago
Yes and he should also support in case is she turned out to be not that good in cooking :D and @sana I agree that it is her duty to cook irrespective of her qualification :)

I'm no feminist, and I'm not attacking men :/ It was just a general question pointed towards the men so I could know their opinion & know exactly how much good culinary skills matter to them when it comes to choosing a wife for themselves. No offense!

Just the way you've met a guy who gives more importance to intelligence, I've met several guys who give a LOT of importance to being a good cook. Which really puzzled me. It lead me to believe that a man's world revolves around food, food, and more food.

In my opinion, it is not *Islamically* obligatory for a wife to cook & clean, but it is considered a cultural thing, plus, it adds to the relationship between a married couple in a very good way. Personally, I believe that having a decent meal ready at the table, by being well groomed, and by maintaining the house in a spick-and-span condition before your hubby reaches home from work can greatly improve marital ties.

I would certainly not expect my husband to come home from work, and then help me with the jharoo pocha around the house and then cook chapattis for me while I've been home all day being a Begum & watching Desperate Housewives ka latest season. No sensible woman should expect that. It's just not right to expect a husband to do that... unless, of course, I'm a working lady myself.

But then I guess it's our thoughts that make us who we are.
Sana MAK | 7 years ago
Well, yea I agree there but what I meant was that things are changing now, people now want well educated career oriented girls. The concept is changing where the girl shud only do jharu pocha.
Yes It's a cultural thing, I have lived in different cultural of KSA and I tell you things are SO different here as compare to Pakistan. They give separate home to the new couple so such things doesn't exist here at all.
Oh no you got me wrong there gal, I wont say a husband shud also help in household work after office work but if he helps when its needed wud be bad. I have seen my dad helping mom when it was needed. Im only against the concept that "only woman shud do household work no matter what and it's becomes an ego prb for men"
