My experience both married and divorcied, the wife or I were always told what was being cooked and when to turn up and we always asked what we could or should bring. And if told to bring nothing we'd take over a host or hostess gift like a bottle of wine or a potted plant or whatever. Basically the same thing applied when others came over to our house.

Now if somebody just dropped over to my house at dinner time they'd be invited to eat but if there was a reason that the food didn't meet spec ...it was too bad for them because I wouldn't be cooking something else.

Because of the ex's fussiness I couldn't cook lamb in the house due to her dislike of the odor. Marriage is all about compromise so for 28 yrs I never had lamb unless I ordered it at a restaurant. And we ate alot of chicken.
When I hear the word compromise from a woman it generally means something is going to change and not to my benifit. -- -Alan
