Very fed up. I cook dinner and dh goes to his mother instead of coming home to eat with us. He is home by 7 or so. He knows I am making dinner. Am sick of his comments about my cooking, family and friends all say I cook well, including his mum! What wuld you do?
Just cook for you and any DC's you have and eat earlier if possible? If he's purposely excluding himself from your evening meal make damn sure he doesn't get a whiff of any food in your house! Cheeky fecker, is it not up to his standards?
Justeat How long have you been married and how long has this been going on? His mother should support you and refuse to feed him. Or invite you also; then no cooking or food bill. lol. What's his cooking like? Eating together is an important social interaction, I would be really fed up about this and know it would affect every other aspect of my relationship with my him. While you are trying to sort this I would stop cooking for him as there is no point and its a waste of time, effort and food.
Think Middleaged suggestion is a good idea. Maybe do it for three straight days if it is practicable. However maybe it has nothing to do with the food and more to do with attachment to his mother's apron strings?
You've got put your foot down and tell him to grow the fuck up. You, him and DS are supposed to be a family. What kind of marriage is it if one person is always sloping off to Mummy's for his din-dins?
He's a child. It might seem like a minor issue to him but it's not.
I'd be telling him that it is perfectly simple. He is part of a family, and so he needs to participate in planning and cooking and eating dinners as a family.
If he doesn't stop, cooking and shopping for him. Don't buy any of his particular foods etc.
He's acting like a child and to be honest, I think I'd almost be tempted to act like one too. If he doesn't like your cooking I'd stretch that to assuming he doesn't like your housekeeping, so the washing doesn't get done...
