Yes, I get this often from my friends. When they see my dishes, they say ‘your wife will be lucky’. When they eat the dishes cooked by me, they say ‘your wife will be lucky’. I feel happy for their blessings and wishes. At the same time I feel taken aback for two reasons. Why would my wife be lucky and what does that imply.
Flow of thoughts through my head is as follows : what they mean to say is may be, my wife will enjoy the delicious cooked by me. That’s the good thing. But what has luck got to do with it. Did they mean that my wife was supposed to be cooking all the time and now I can accompany her or may be, cook most of the time, that way she gets to rest and enjoy the food cooked by me. That sounds like luck. But that is a common thing for couple, isn’t it. Where one of them is cooking or doing any household work for that matter to balance out the partner. This way there would be harmony in relationship.
Did they mean to say that ‘women are supposed to be cooking?’.
Or Did they mean to say that ‘men can’t cook ?’
