Is the Way To A Man’s Heart Through His Stomach?

“Cook for him, surprise him with meals, and learn to make his favourite meal so that he will not go outside.”

For many a woman, one of the ways to show your partner that you are prepared for marriage is by cooking. Because of this, women spend their early lives in the kitchen.

Yet, the evolving society continues to question the ideals that we were raised with.


The best cooks still have cheats as partners. There are happy marriages, some claim, where the couple does not cook. After all, they argue there is a reason chefs and restaurants exist.

In another class, there are men who never tasted their wife’s meal but still chose them. Still, there are some who believe that if they must eat, they must learn to cook. These kind are specific with what goes in through their mouth.

Then there is the problem of monotony and man’s desire to explore other people’s meals. Adventures which might involve him trying out the benefits of fasting.
