  • Happens here :( Sometimes he just decides that it doesn't look or smell good to him. I get upset inside, and decide to hold my tongue, because I do not want to fight about food.

    I don't like it, though.

  • I would not be a happy camper & he would get the silent treatment for as long as I felt, no, for as long as I wanted to give it to him!

  • i would let him know that it hurt my feelings. My ex used to do that all the time. He'd come home & say "I don't feel like that tonight, i want something else" i stopped cooking. My DH now eats anything i make, even if he doesn't like won't waste food. He refuses to waste anything...

  • i've tried letting him know how hurtful it is. this isnt the first time this has happend. this is why is gave him the heads up i was cooking. i've also tried NOT cooking and letting it just go to sandwiches..but he seems to be fine with that. he doesnt eat unless i cook some sort of junk. i refuse to cook like that all the time. tonight i fixed a good dinner and used a meat he liked..but he didnt touch it. he really pisses me off. i'm just not gonna think of him anymore at all.

  • When my husband comes home he goes to the gym after changing his clothes and although I have dinner cooked he will make a sandwich to hold him over til after his workout. But to make a sandwich as dinner while dinner is on the stove, no he's never done this unless he comes home sick in that case he would make soup.

  • My dh grew up having to fend for himself so he's grateful to have someone taking care of him. If he were ever this disrespectful I would never cook for him again. I find your dh's behavior to be very rude!
