Pastor Adeboye Advices ''Sons'' Not To Marry A Lady That Cannot Cook...

Pastor Adeboye Says Men should not marry a woman who cannot cook.......
What you think about this?

This advice is somehow and I disagree with it because most women learn how to cook well in their Matrimonial homes....









Does the Bible support this kind of advice?

    1. Okay I don’t understand the she needs to know how to do chores part..... is she a slave?
      What he should have said was you and your wife need to love and support each other because she is not a slave

  2. I agree with him. As a woman, you should know how to cook and do chores.
    These days, some women think they are too “woke” to do the cooking and house chores. They employ underaged children and use them like slaves.

      Anons, there is nothing wrong in men assisting. Besides this post is about “women” knowing how to cook and do chores.
      Is there anywhere ☝🏿 the pastor talked about it being an abomination in men helping their wives 🀷🏿‍♀️
      I mean, how many of your fathers even cook?
      Y’all claim to be “woke”....backwards.
      Zig or zag, whatever your name is, you are an idiot. Next time you want to make your point, do it without insults. Low life.

    9. Chores are not specific to gender. Both boys and guys should learn to do all... This is where noble's 'wife not cook' comes into play, there is more to being a wife that just cooking

    10. They are quick to shout "African mentality" because they are foolish and check,most of them haven't left the shores of Nigeria. I agree with you slutty. The only problem is that I cannot cook but I'm learning.

    11. Dear slutty, even the virtuous woman in the Bible had staff. She had people she woke up to give duties in her home.
      I agree with knowing how to cook and do chores, cus how would one survive when theres no help? But i also insist on everyone knowing how to do chores and not just the woman.

    12. Slutty my father cooks and still does,he will be 70 in April;if he is hungry,he enters the kitchen especially these days that he is mostly alone.

      Everyday I pray for a man like him...this man gives us PEACE!

    13. Now that 99 and half women provide for their family you still want to limit a woman to the kitchen, I repeat it is pure African mentality whether I have travelled out or not, it is not so in other climes. It is pure women slavery .Men should also know how to cook.

      Delete
    14. And the men should learn how to do what?????????


      @ Slutty,
      You are disappointing me with your backward comment this days.

      FYI, The best cooks are men, check top restaurants and see their chefs

    15. Sluttychic, you called that Anon a lowlife. Please, what's the lesson you are trying to teach? No difference!

      Delete
    16. You people treat men like babies. So how were they surviving when they were single? Most mothers these days are teaching their sons how to cook, so that they can be independent. And it's not a matter of "wokeness." It's a matter of convenience and self care. Most women in 2020 are working 9-10 hours a day, 40 hours a week. Why should we both go to work for 9 hours, sit in traffic for a long commute, both come home dog tired and then only I should shoulder the responsibility of domestic chores? When most women today are also breadwinners or assist in paying the bills? For fair division of labor, it's best to have domestic staff. If you expect your wife to do all the chores without a maid, then pay her monthly so that she can sit at home and be a housewife. Lobatan! LOL even the housewives these days have maids.

      No one says it’s wrong for a man to know how to cook or assist with chores. just know how to cook as a woman.
      How many of you can actually marry a man who has no means of livelihood?
      Nkay, amen to your prayer. I like men who can cook.

    28. As a woman? Ridiculous. Why don't men go to farm and hunt for food while the woman does chores and cooks? If you haven't realised that times have changed and women now work outside the homes too while men also need to do chores or hire helps then you are not serious. That's the mentality you lot will use in choosing men and then start whining when it sets.

Every damn month, something from the 1400s escapes this man's Mouth and the minions worshipping him would say amen. Is it not those his fat sons that daughters of God should reduce themselves for? If you marry into any of these businesses centers, just make sure the man is bringing in like 15 million a month so the management can be worth it.

  6. Pastor daddy GO knows he's highly regarded and has huge followership from his ministry and others both in Nigeria and outside that listens to him and takes what he says to heart.

    In my opinion, topics like this is way too controversial to be involved in as a recognised and respected person... Nigeria aside, some other countries don't place much importance on what gender does what or what not in marriages. This can create unnecessary drama and confusion.

    I'm not for or against. Whatever works in your home and gives the home peace is all that matters. Both sexes should goan learn how to cook. NOT JUST WOMEN!!!

    Replies
    1. It is not creating any drama. We are gradually losing our values that stands out for us as Africans. We want to copy everything from oyinbo people that do not value family system or marriage. No wonder kids of nowadays do not last in marriage. How long will the love last when the woman can not manage the home front aka cook for the family? Pls leave the Pastor alone he is 100% right afterall he is refering to his sons.

    2. @ Anno 09*46,

      So for your mind it takes only a woman to make a marriage work, u see why we have so many entitled men roaming around

    3. Africans has since lost their values long before imo river, They still depend on oyibo for everything why won't they copy their good values. This una Daddy is always causing confusion for his gullible followers, don't worry they will soon come for him. The main cause of marriage break down these days is because men are not living up to exceptions. Most men today are damn too lazy , he should address that first.If you like cook more than Genesis and the man is not providing for the family, the marriage will still break

      Delete
    4. Would you rather go back to the cave?
      Oyibo mentality when only men went to war back then was women cook, clean, birth and raise child - generally keep the home.
      They moved away from that mentality when the times changed.
      Today, women go to war, work 9-5, run businesses outside the home, earn for the family upkeep . Why should Africans be stuck in the rut?! No wonder we rarely invent anything.

      You want to hang on to African mentality where it suits you yet you use washing machine, juice-maker, electric/gas cooker etc.
      Men and women should cook and do chores. What do men do with all that their physical strength?

    1. God bless you richly. Living with a man with two left hands, the tongue of a restaurant critic and the appetite of a sumo wrestler aka "I am an African" erases love fast no matter how wealthy he is. Just think back to doing chores as a teenager- your parents were providing but you were fully tired of them. And to those always tapping the blessings of relocation, you think you can combine that job with cooking African delicacy and caring for children full on your own while the man reads newspaper and watches TV abroad? We await the chronicles of him sleeping with the neighbors and ushers in church. Maybe then you'll better appreciate your former Naija house girl.

      NEVER HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH A MAN WHO CAN'T COOK OR WHO IS DOMESTICALLY LAZY IN THE NAME OF "AFRICAN". His African grandfathers used to take their children to the farms away from the woman and feed and care for them for weeks. They would cook meats to preserve it and farm virtually all their families ate. Look for true partnership if not, the pastor you'll go to when you start running mental will tell you only women should cook and when the screws finally fall off, he Will tell your husband it is not good for a man to be alone so another long-suffering mugu can take your place.

  10. It's good for a woman to know how to cook but it's not a criteria for marriage. Neither does it keep a home. But a good meal is the way to a man's heart. I think men should decide who they want to marriage based on their preferences. Some like a woman who can cook, some want women who work, intelligent and some prefer beauty. Anyways the advice his not for everyone neither is it a must for his sons.

  11. Well a man should marry a woman who can cook the basics at least, and a woman should marry a man who can provide the basics I.e clothing, food and shelter.

  12. Is expertise in the kitchen a guarantee that the man will never cheat on her or abandon her for another woman? Is inability to cook the leading cause of divorce and family strife?

    2. Research shows that the major reason for marital strife and divorce is FINANCES. I am waiting for that sermon that would tell couples not to pay tithe but rather, invest it so they can have more financial security. How about telling women not to have anything to do with a man who is not his own landlord, does not have at least two cars and is not earning about 20 million a month. After all, the man that wrote Proverbs 31 was so rich the whole world knew it.

I know some women will say "wives not slaves" but a sensible woman should know what to do. That's why they go around slaving innocent people all in the name of house help...

  20. COOKING IS NOT A WOMAN'S THING!!!!!

    You learn to cook for your own survival and peace.
    That's how my brother some years back got into the university and asked me to plead with his female neighbour to help him cook,I did speak with her but also told her to charge him for it.Now we have tutorials on phone about how/what to cook.

    Ofcourse it is different if a woman intentionally refuses to cook but there are some who growing up were never allowed into the kitchen because their parents loved them too much to 'stress' them. Still you see them willing to learn in their hubby's home.

    I'm sure a man who can cook too won't be stressing himself about a woman who can't because he will be willing to teach the one he loves who falls short in that aspect.

    PARENTS TEACH YOUR CHILDREN EQUALLY HOW TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR HOMES.YES I'M SHOUTING.WE HAVE TERRIBLY RAISED MEN WITH ENTITLEMENT MENTALITY ROAMING THE STREETS.

      My sister's only son started helping in the kitchen at 9. By 18 he was schooling in UK and living alone so cooking and chores came natural. Every relation and friend he visited in UK were wowed by his home training, discipline and calmness.
      He's done with school, was retained where he interned because of these very qualities and more. He still cooks and cleans as ever.

      A man should know how to cook and clean for his own good cus your wife will not always be there to mummy you.

  22. Sir please, your next Quote 79 should be, "Ladies please, do not marry any man that cannot provide for all your financial needs and your children's , build you a house and foot all the bills in the house because it's is his responsibility as the head of the home."

    Please, what if a man loves to cook, cooks well and prefers to cook?
    What if another man works from home, has more time than the lady who works a 9-5 job?

    What if the man loves to cook and door chores with his wife?

    Anybody can do chores.
    Parents of his generation raised sons not to sweep, clean, wash and make their beds while the daughters were trained to slave away and pick up after them. The result is highly inconsiderate husbands of today.

    See, this type of advice could encourage men to have a rigid mindset and ruin relationships.

    Sir, please some women cook the best meals but are not so good in other areas.
    Some women do not cook at all and are wonderful in other areas.
    I cook well but rarely do because all my life I've been surrounded by people who love to cook. I'm super organized and love to keep things in order. I also like to do my chores at my own pace or pay people to get some chores done for me. I accomplish things by sheer determination and discipline not stamina (which I don't have).

    Folks, do what works best for you.

  24. Stellz, let me explain it this way. In law, we have the ratio decidendi and the obiter dictum. Ratio decidendi is the rule of law on which judicial decisions are made. When a ratio decidendi is made by the supreme court, it trickles down to all other courts as case law. Whether the presiding judges of the lower courts like it or not, they are bound by it. The obiter dictum, on the other hand, is the opinion of a judge which is not binding or recognized as law. It is purely based on the mindset of a particular judge which his other brother judges may not agree with but he is still allowed to express it.

    What pastor Adeboye has expressed can be regarded as an obiter dictum, his personal opinion which doesn't necessarily need Biblical quotations. It is merely an advice which is not a law nor a Biblical principle that must be followed. If your pastor advises ladies to wash their undies with hot water, or brush their teeth at least twice a day, for example, you wouldn't need a Biblical quotation for that, would you? Just because a piece of advice has no Biblical quotation doesn't mean it isn't sound. However when it comes to doctrines or laws which a pastor insists his congregants should follow, it must be anchored on Biblical quotations or scriptures.

    I don't agree with pastor Adeboye on this issue but I understand his perspective. Remember, he is old school and his mentality is set. His wife prepares all his meals and he has seen the positives of a wife preparing her husband's meals. I, on the other hand, wouldn't tell my son not to marry the love of his life solely because she can't cook. I will personally volunteer to offer her a crash course on art of cooking and even give her some of my secret recipes and other tips I know would blow my son's mind.

    There are men who are wealthy enough to hire chefs, cooks or both and they don't mind having a wife who can not cook. Such men wouldn't take this advice because it doesn't apply to them. We are blessed to have a professional chef and a couple of cooks but when I'm less preoccupied, I prepare my hubby's meals or at least supervise the preparation. Hubby sees it like I'm stressing myself but I see how he smiles when I prepare his meals, so I do it to make him happy. People should do what works for their individual households. Pastor Adeboye's opinion is merely a fatherly advice, it mustn't be accepted hook, line and sinker if you don't agree with it. I don't do all my mum advises me to do, anyway.

    1. The ish is that that very statement can cause problems in some homes. You may not agree, but it is fact. What works for everyone is different, esp in today's times. The survival skill is to be able to adapt to the changes life throws at you, irrespective of gender and learning to compromise as necessary for peace and progress, rather than maintaining a rigid stance. And who abused the man of God? Or is disagreeing with his statement abuse?

  26. God bless you Ronalda. Someone is advising his sons and some funny people are having opinion. Who forced you to take the advice? And who is stopping your father from advising you? I dont blame you. When the education system has been so eroded that simple comprehension is now rocket science for most. Mtchew!!

    2. A sentence started with my son and the floodgates open. I know my own father and will never give one second thought or attention to advice from another person's father. But then it still boils down to comprehension!!

  27. I know women who don't know how to cook yet their husbands treat them like gold and vice versa.

    I believe ALL (men and women) should know how to cook and do chores even if you're a millionaire so you know how to take care of yourself if the resources are not there.

  28. Sir, men still go out a lot to eat and drink with their buddies... even when they cannot afford it. πŸ˜„

    Sometimes, the buddies take turns in paying.

  29. I cannot even marry a man that cannot cook or do chores myself. So do what makes you happy in marriage. No manual for marriage.

  30. I disagree with this statement. Everybody should learn how to cook irrespective of who you are. If the woman does not contribute to the home, then I can say she should be cooking as her contribution. But now when she contribute to the income of the home. When God created man, He then went ahead to create an help mate for the man. Women are helpmate and not house help, cook or men’s inferior. It is good if a woman knows how to cook buy it is not a criteria for marriage. We keep adding to the Bible. If I have to be just a cook and take care of the home then my husband should be ready to be the only financial contributor of the family. Sometimes I really don’t understand what men want, if you go out to work, they accuse you. If you stay at home yo take care of the home, they say you are too lazy and that all you know is to eat and start comparing you with their friend’s wives

    1. Some people who have (or borrow) a platform fail to realise that not every message is for everyone under the sound of your voice. And that's how even with good intentions, even wo/men of God lead people into unnecessary bondage. A lot of people are used to messy behaviour from the pulpit - which is why many cry and wail when I specifically add caveat of "This isn't for everyone and shouting Amen will not make it so" to my posts.

      It doesn't help that a lot of people don't really know where their culture ends and where God starts. So, some messages are actually from culture.

      Did I say women shouldn't know how to cook? No. A human being should know how to cook cos a) it's a basic survival skill and b) no gender came to this world to slave for the other.

      But then, what does cooking mean? Cos (for instance) an Igbo lady will think she's dope in the kitchen and everyone she has met affirms that. Till she marries a Yoruba or Edo man and fight will start cos story will be "she doesn't know how to cook". Just like a health freak whose idea of breakfast is green juice and lunch is a sandwich will cry that her husband is terrorising her cos he wants jollof rice or yam porridge.

      Having said that, people have different problems in life. A man who is looking for a cook cannot marry certain kinds of women. There are men for whom cooking cannot be your selling point, else you no go marry. All blue jeans trousers are not the same. If you marry a man who is so rich that he has a personal chef who is trained in local and international cuisine living in his boys' quarters and you think that your ability to cook edikaikong three different ways is where your wife materialness is - you will be crying everyday. Cos oga ain't about to sack his chef. So, you'd better be useful elsewhere.

      The problem with the advice given is the refusal to take into consideration that what makes one man go gaga is what another won't even notice. So, he's now (I hope unintentionally) putting women under pressure to fit a mould that they think all men are looking for. Even the men will start thinking something is wrong with them if they're not looking for cooking skills. And that's how some will miss their divinely ordained spouse.

      My husband and I never talked about cooking till after we got married. And even when I wasn't yet married, I kept hearing comments from people about how I look like someone who doesn't know how to cook. I don't know how people that know how to cook, look. Maybe those ones use pepper to do lipstick, turmeric as face powder and vegetable as hairpin. Since it's now written on the face. What a lot of people don't know is that I actually a) attended catering school before university cos I was fascinated with menus from around the world, and b) own not less than 20 cookery books (Mediterranean, Indian, Chinese, Mexican, Spanish, Italian, etc.) Till we got married and started living together, my husband had no reason to know. No, I don't cook everyday. We have people for that. And my husband somehow thinks it's a disturbance for me. He says he doesn't expect me to return from work or a trip and start cooking. Plus when I do cook, I don't want to spend all day in the kitchen. Yes, we still eat out and order in. Yet, there are times when he goes, "Babe, I'm so worried. I just need to hear you say that I did the right thing and X,Y,Z will pay off though it looks bad." Imagine such a man looking for cooking skills as the most important thing in a wife. Lol.

    2. Because of women who can't cook, my man doesn't eat out whenever I'm around cause he likes my food...cooking should not be something to argue over , I see it as no big deal to cook for anyone as I enjoy cooking, only those that don't know how to cook won't like this

  33. Lol so if a woman is kind, decent, hardworking and respectful BUT cooking is not her thing, don't marry her? These old people sef.
    Ideally, EVERYONE should know how to cook: male or female. This is for HEALTH purposes. There are so many harmful substances in fast food, such as MSG and all those spices. Unless you want to tell me you buy salad everyday,you really don't know what these people cook with. The rise in junk food has given way to the rise in diabetes, hypertension, obesity and so on. If a man lives alone, is he going to buy fast food everyday? Come on! That's why I'm teaching both my son and daughter to cook healthy.
    Most women today are career women. You can't expect someone to go and work 9 hours a day, sometimes on weekends too (for those with shops) and then come and stand on their feet and cook. Pastor is from an era where women stayed at home. I'll bet Mama Adeboye was a housewife. The realistic thing to do is either to cook together to last the whole week (on weekends) OR to get someone to help you. A lot of married men cook these days.
