I love to eat, not so much cook. I have to feel inspired or motivated to do so; I also don't think I'm a great cook which is probably the reason why I don't do it often. I didn't grow up with parents who loved cooking and meal prepping. My mom cooked because she felt obligated to do so and my dad only cooked when he was inspired to make a special dish (which was not in special occasions, they were spontaneous and random).
Who's to say I have to make the meals when we are married? I'm not throwing the towel on this completely, but I think we should decide on who's cooking tonight. On days like today, rainy and gloomy, all I want to do is lay on the couch and watch TV, read a book, play on my phone, and order take out. Those are the things that come to mind, not "I can't wait to be in the kitchen for over an hour preparing a meal!" There are far more exciting things than cooking, for example, a text message from Postmates saying "your food is arriving now, time to eat!"
So, who's cooking tonight? Maybe we can do it together. You cut the vegetables and season the meat while I... watch you! Yea, I think that would work! I'm perfectly fine with watching your strong arms cut carrots and your hands massaging Sazon Goya on the chicken. Oh, How exciting! I can't wait. One of us has to do it, but please, not me, not tonight.
We can trade every night or every two nights if you want to spoil me. I've read articles by highly reputable sources that explain the change in behavior in a marriage when a wife is spoiled, therefore, they recommend all husbands to do so because, and I quote, "Happy Wife, Happy Life."
Future Husband, I'm a very good dish washer, floor sweeper, laundry doer, and errand runner. I can do our bed every morning, put our clothes and shoes away every night, take the trash out... on second thought, the kitchen, including the trash, is all yours, but I can handle everything else. Help. Me!
