Listen up guys, being a married man shouldn’t mean that the kitchen is out of bounds to you. A man should know how to cook before he gets married. If you didn’t know how to cook before you met your wife, then that’s your wahala .
Your wife is not your cook or your maid, but your companion. We should let the roles in a relationship be determined by ability and not by gender.
Mothers, teach your sons how to cook and do house chores because at some point in his life he would be living on his own and he would need to know how to cook and clean. These are basic survival skills.
A man who believes he should never go into the kitchen to cook, was once a boy who was not taught any better.
Teaching your sons how do these things starts with you.
