A man has accused his surgeon wife of abuse after she added onion and herbs to their twin sons’ dinner and made it ‘too spicy’.
The ‘European’ man, 38, posted on Reddit, where he explained that his 39-year-old ‘south Asian’ wife had made the seven-year-olds’ dinner ‘really spicy’ by adding peppercorns and turmeric to an Asian meal.
While their boys had wanted to try the dish, they later burst into tears when they couldn’t finish it due to it being too ‘spicy’.

‘I have been married to my wife for 15 years,’ the man wrote.
‘We have a daughter, aged 12, and twin sons, aged seven. I am a European white man while my wife is of south Asian descent.’
He explained that his wife usually cooks their meals, and while she and their daughter like spice, he normally eats ‘plain dishes as I can’t handle it’.
The sons also can’t eat spicy food but they ‘get upset when their mum and sister eat a different, nicer-looking dish’.
This leads to his wife having to create three different dinners.
‘Last night my wife was having a bad day and our sons wanted to try the dish she was making,’ he wrote.
‘Whenever they ask to try her dishes, she gets really excited that the kids want to eat food from her culture.’
Once the twins had convinced their mum to make the one dish for the entire family, it didn’t take long for the family to revolt:
‘The dish was really spicy, it had onions in it and a bunch of other spices including peppercorns and turmeric,’ the man said.
‘The onions were really strong and spicy. I literally couldn’t look at the dish without my eyes watering and had to go outside for fresh air.’
When the sons asked their mum if she could make something different for them instead, he said she ‘snapped’ and yelled at them all.
‘She said “no” and that they asked for it, that she was tired of having to make different foods for the family.’
The man said things got even more heated when he confronted her about it later on, upon which point she told her husband ‘she is done with me, that maybe our sons could handle her food and culture if it wasn’t for me gatekeeping them and babying them’.
The man asked others on Reddit for their opinion on whether he was in the wrong or right, and was quickly met with an avalanche of criticism.
‘Seriously? Onions? I was imagining that she was cooking with tonnes of chillies, not onions,’ one commenter posted.
‘Why is your surgeon wife responsible for all the cooking in the first place?’ asked another.
‘Why aren’t you making you and your sons your own dinner if you can’t eat what your wife is generously cooking with her extremely limited amount of free time?’
