“I Love Cooking For My Husband… I’m Not Oppressed.”

“I Love Cooking For My Husband… I’m Not Oppressed.”


A Melbourne woman who cooks her husband three meals a day says she’s shocked by the hate she’s received online by people calling her anti-feminist and oppressed. She says she’s anything but and actually enjoys looking after her husband. What do you think?

Sonali explains that she prepares her husband Nipun three separate meals each day as well as packing him lunch to take to work. The 26 year old says nothing makes her happier than cooking for her husband and says it’s their ‘love language.’

Sharing her meal prep on TikTok, Somali says she was shocked to receive a barrage of hateful comments from people who called her oppressed and a 1950’s housewife.

“I was shocked. I am a successful and educated young woman, I love my career and I’m very independent,” she said. “But I also love cooking for my husband, and some people seem to think that these two parts of me cannot coexist.”

“People just assume that I’m being oppressed, or that I’m behind the times, but in reality, my husband jokes that I’m the boss in our relationship.”

“They think he is forcing me to do this or is some kind of misogynist, but he is not like that at all. He is the sweetest, most caring man in the world who lets me be whoever I want to be. He never asked me to do this.

Husband Nipun – who she married in January this year – works long hours as a company director and Sonali says she likes to make sure he remembers to eat.

Commenters on TikTok we’re quick to compare Sonali with an oppressed housewife saying she should let him cook for himself.

“Let him make his own meals, he’s not a child,” one person said, “is he two years old?”

“Who is making your lunch?” another asked.

Sonali says she doesn’t care what people think and believes it’s the right thing for her and her marriage.

“I don’t really understand why people have an issue with it,” she said. “It’s my life, it makes me happy. It shouldn’t be a problem. Making my husband’s meals isn’t pushing back the clock on women’s liberation, and I am in no way a ‘1950s’ housewife as some like to say.

“For me, it’s just a small thing to show my husband how much I love and care for him.”
