“HOW DO I GET MY HUSBAND TO SAY WHAT HE WANTS TO EAT?”

Now this is my own letter to me. I try as best as I can to solve people’s marital problems…now, it’s time to solve mine.

Dear NHW,

I need an urgent answer to this problem lest I lose my mind.

My hubby of almost 12 years still has issues deciphering what he wants for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Gone are the days when I used to enjoy food and therefore indulge him in assorted meals. Since I started my weight loss journey over a year ago ( no matter how inconsistent), I hate food and which my dear hubby is quite aware of.

Bottom line is, every time I call him well ahead of time to tell me what he wants, he repeatedly asks the same damn question “What do you have in mind?”… For Christ’s sakes…I have nothing in mind, you tell me! P.S. I HATE FOOD! DUH?!

Some days, he tries to be good and tells me to prepare anything. Easy, right?! Wrong! This same hubby will still come home and still turn his nose up at what has been prepared! *Exasperating*

So, NHW, how do I know what he wants?

Dear me, HOW THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW WHAT HE WANTS IF HE DOESN’T KNOW HIMSELF!

One day, I might just serve him snakes and toad eyes…as our youngest daughter suggests!

Help, anybody… Somebody?!

  1. The only advice I remember my Mum giving me about being married is, “don’t ask what he wants to eat(what if he asked for pounded yam and veg in the middle of the night), just serve whatever you could prepare nicely”.

    So dear, draw up a menu and don’t bother about thinking again.

  2. Lol! Maybe have a Monday-Friday calendar and sit with him and fill out the calendar with his help. At the end of the week, cross out what he turned his nose up on, the other ones keep- then you have an idea of what you can prepare for him for the week. I think having a weekly calendar might help šŸ™‚
