I wont agree with both sides both :hide: Keeping maid to cook Cooking is the way to enter the DH heart and taking control over the kitchen ensure our position in the house. No need for a maid to cook day to day cooking, just cook what you can and make others in house to understand your situation. If its joint family anyway MIL will share the work, in neutral family make DH to help in the kitchen. I can say today many men are doing that, though there are some exemptions. People who support cooking on own in yesterdays show said once, they wont let their daughter / son to cook and get tired of working and cooking like them. What a contrary note :bonk. They said that kitchen is their own area and wont allow others to control it...lol even if you keep maid, its your kitchen, and you are going to decide whats going to be todays menu (may be they are talking about sharing with MIL :crazy no..no..that's different topic and we need separate show for that :biggrin2 About the girl taking very openly about her personal thing....I don't think its a good idea to talk those stuff in a public talk show while many people are watching around the world including her friends, relatives also her children ( If they can understand what their mom talk) I don't like the way she expressed it..i wish she said that in a more subtle way. its my personal opinion. Even I don't like the counter attack the doctor lady gave to it. Also I blame it on these talk show people who are trying to get something like that out of the people mouth to increase their TRB's.
