There is another side of things that may apply my mother, my ex and every girl I lived with, would shoo me out of the kitchen and scold me for being in the way and not knowing what I was doing, yet also pointing out what they “had” to do.
It was a no win situation
When I separated and divorced from my wife, I had no domestic skills to speak of. The first three months were trying. I got food poisoning 5 times.
Eventually I learn. My kids enjoy my meals and I make an effort with them.
Not saying that this is the same situation. I am old and an Aussie so things may be different
