1. Women love to feel pampered.
You know it's true. Your wife may be a model of efficiency, but she still gets misty-eyed at the thought of being treated like royalty once in a while. Women also love it when you take time and put forth effort to make them happy. Cooking for your wife accomplishes both goals. Sweep your wife off her feet all over again by serving up a meal fit for your queen.
2. She finds you irresistible in an apron.
You probably learned from painful experience that women have different ideas about what constitutes romance than men do. Your wife is likely to be at her most romantic when she is relaxed and feels loved and cared for. There's no better way to make her feel all those things than to cook for her. It just might turn out to be one of the best nights the two of you have ever spent together.
3. The chef picks the menu.
Even the best cooks can fall into a rut sometimes. Your wife may not even realize that you can tell the day of the week just by the smells coming from the kitchen. If the only time you get to eat barbecued brisket is when the BBQ smokers and grills come out during the summer, cooking more often can give you the perfect excuse to serve it more often. When you cook, you get the chance to revisit old favorites and give new tastes a try. You may even inspire your wife to add a few new dishes to her repertoire.
Too often, men fall into the habit of thinking of cooking as something to do only on special occasions. Family meals are an integral part of a strong family's foundation, however, and cooking for your wife sends a clear and unambiguous message that you are committed to her and fully engaged in your life together. It's the truth, after all. Besides, you know how women dig that sort of thing.
