I am presently confused about what is going on in my family. My husband prefers our maid’s cooking to mine.
I know that sounds surprising for anyone to hear, but that is what I am facing in my home now.
Our maid is just 21 years old. She came from the village late last year to live with us. I was the one who complained to my husband that we needed a maid at home, since I am a career woman, and managing my home and job was really hectic for me.
He understood with me, and said he would do something about it. Two days after that, he told me he had called his mother in the village to look for a maid for us.
About two weeks later, his mother brought the maid from the village for us.
My husband and I have been married for two years now, and I had been the one cooking for him before the maid was brought for us.
When the maid arrived, I was excited that at least I had gotten someone to help me manage the house for me.
So our maid does the cooking during the weekdays, and at weekends when I’m home, I do it. In that way, the stress was taken off my neck, and I became more productive in my job in the office.
Our maid has been living with us for seven months now. She is a good girl, very obedient and submissive, and I like her a lot. I don’t treat her like a maid at all, I treat her like my own kid sister.
I gave out some of my expensive dresses to her, just to make her happy, and also take her shopping once in a while. And coupled with the fact that she’s from my husband’s village, I took her as family.
But something strange happened today when I wanted to cook. My husband called me inside our room, and told me that I should allow our maid to cook the food.
I was surprised, and asked him why. Do you know the answer he gave me? He told me that he just prefers our maid’s cooking to mine.
He said I should not take offense in it, that there is nothing attached to it, that he just enjoys the girl’s foods, and prefers her cooking.
I was so shocked at such bluntness. He kept on begging me that I should not be offended by it, that he’s only telling me the truth.
At that point I didn’t know what exactly to do or say, so I just obeyed him and allowed our maid to cook the food.
But right now I’m very confused, and I feel I need to do something about this immediately, know I don’t know what exactly to do.
I am sharing this story here, so that you people can advise me on what is the best thing for me to do now.
