Cooking is one of the most intimate things, other than sex that you can do with your partner. When you create a dish for someone that you love, no matter the complexity, there is great love and care that goes into it. In some instances a man making a nice meal for a woman can be even more well received than a bouquet of flowers. The meal is even more meaningful if you do it together. Cooking can be fun, exciting, filled with passion, and also delicious with a bit of a mess. Having fun in relationships is a large factor in the key to success.
“Did you know that 70% of surveyed married couples actually like to cook together, and those couples that do enjoy cooking together are significantly more satisfied in ALL areas of their lives than couples who don’t cook together?”
Learning something new with your partner is also a great exercise to strengthen your relationship. Cooking brings up nostalgic memories of trips and holidays gone by. Cherish your honeymoon trip to Italy by learning to make your own pasta for an anniversary meal every year. Tradition is almost always tied to food. Holidays food is abundant and memorable. You do not even need to take a cooking class to learn to cook together. Just pull up a YouTube video, take a quick trip to the grocery and come home to have a night filled with delicious eats and romance.
Just as I said above, cooking can be deeply intimate and memorable. Cooking together regularly as a couple can keep a passionate spark that would otherwise be only a thing of the past. Relationships take a lot of work, and sometimes you need to get a little messy in the process. Bon Appetit!
