Mods, I hope I have put this in the right section. My husband is born Iraqi and I am born Canadian (english, scottish, german-u get the picture). It just seems lately that he has been putting me down alot for the fact that i cant cook iraqi food at all and has started calling me not a real woman. I know how to cook canadian but he is not interested in it at all. I have tried to learn to cook his food but it is hard when noone will teach me and believe me the cookbooks/internet about it are not authentic according to him. I used to love cooking and now i hate it. I am just not sure how to resolve this or if it is indicative of a larger problem with our different cultures. We are so different with regards to child rearing, views on life etc. I am starting to wonder how we ever got together at all. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, how did you deal with it? To be honest, I am beginning to feel that the marriage was a mistake.
