Working Woman Slammed For Making Husband Cook When He Stayed At Home.

When you’re in a relationship, there are a lot of things you have to do jointly. Chores aren’t the most enjoyable thing in the world, but they’re necessary. However, not everyone is eager to contribute. Even amongst loving partners, chores may be a source of friction. Read the story to know what happened between this couple and what you would have done.

My husband broke his ankle and had to have surgery. He has a cast for now and crutches to get around the house and has been home less than a week. Normally we either take turns cooking or cook together when we both get home. But since he’ll be home for a number of weeks I told him he should be covering dinner for us. He said he’d do what he could.

The first day all he made was freaking grilled cheese and soup. Stuff like that that doesn’t really constitute a meal or he orders take out. Once in a while, okay, but it’s been like that ever since he’s been staying home. Yesterday I asked him to do something with more sustenance like a baked dish with a side salad. Protein and vegetable sides.

My husband argued and said he didn’t think he’d be able to do something like that because he’s supposed to be staying off that foot as much as possible for the time being. And he brought up being in pain. I totally get the pain but I reminded him that there were ways to make a good dinner even with a broken ankle. He has his crutches, could bring a stool or rolling chair into the kitchen, or get everything to the table and sit to do prep.

Instead, he made chili in a slow cooker and had premade salads delivered from the store. I wound up making something for myself instead and told him how I was getting fed up with him disregarding my wishes and feelings.

He told me I’m being bossy and need to cut him slack and he’d go stay with a friend. He’s been there a whole day and was short with me when I’ve called to get him to talk about this. I don’t think I’m asking too much from him to just cook dinner since he’s home but Am I Being A Jerk?
