A wife has turned to Reddit for advice on whether she was in the wrong for refusing to cook yet another meal for her picky-eating husband. Despite cooking his favorite meals all week, her husband would refuse to eat them if he was 'not in the mood' and would go to bed without dinner. When the wife finally put her foot down, the husband accused her of not caring about his feelings. Read on to see if Reddit agrees with the wife's actions.
