Not too long ago, a debate was sparked on social media after a Ghanaian feminist believed to be living abroad brought up the issue of wives and cooking.
The lady reported to be called Dela Goldheart on Facebook commented on a post made by Lawyer Ace Ankomah which led to an exchange of messages between the two.
The issue blew up on social media and has led to a ‘hot’ debate if it can be considered slavery for a wife to cook for her husband.
Some of the arguments that were earlier gathered across various social media platforms were in favor of both sides even though some women agreed that it was the responsibility of a well-trained wife to take care of her husband.
Some women who argued on the matter from the feminist point of view said they would cook or not cook for their husband but it all depended on the understanding between the couple.
Others argued that nothing stopped a full-grown man, even though he was a husband from cooking his own food and also taking his turn to take care of his family when the need arose.

The ardent feminists however revealed that cooking at home had become stereotypically attached to women by way of culture even though it was not the case.
Arguing from the other divide, some men held the assertion that the concept of feminism was being wrongly interpreted by some women who had mixed up roles in relationships.
We posed the question, “Is cooking for your husband a form of slavery?” Here is what some reader of YEN.COM.GH had to say on the matter:
