My wife won't make me dinner.

Of course, everyone knows that it is poor form to hand or sell your lady's food back to her, but I haven't sold her food back to her

However, I have sold her food to a few merchants, and dropped some of her food in dungeons. Is it possible that this might be the reason she won't cook food anymore?

Is there any way I can fix this so she start cooking food again?

    @GnomeSlice, we try to be fun, but our first responsibility is to the poor, tag-uninformed reader who might settle for one daily virtual meal per day, or worse, forgo the opportunity to become a werewolf in some other game due to an ambiguous title... Once we ensure we're not undermining digital nutritional needs or lycanthropic opportunities, then we can embrace a little whimsy. :)

    @Jaydles I think we agreed as a community a while ago that these titles are generally OK.

    @spartacus, see this post. Depending on tags to convey a title's meaning is becoming an impediment to new users getting a feel for a number of sites. I'm not going around editing older ones - this one caught attention because the cute title was attracting comment noise that required mod attention.

You can only receive one home-cooked meal per day. Other than that, this appears to be a bug experienced by other players. The exact trigger does not seem to be known yet.


If you have sold the home cooked meal then your wife will stop cooking for you. I verified it in game and it does happen to be the case.


On both my first and second run my wife stopped cooking for me after I became a werewolf. Even after I cured this character she never did start cooking for me again.


This bug can activate when you use addtofaction 19809 1 and setrelationshiprank player 4.

What you need to do is kill your wife, then resurrect after that and try to use these commands:

addtofaction 19809 1

setrelationshiprank player (17)

setfamy 500

spouse homecookmeal set 50

spouse respect set 300

spouse half money set 500

spouse vampirism 1

spouse respect 300

spouse love 100

After trying this code you will get a lover stone and a vampire wife and your wife can be a follower.

These commands will only work for the PC version.

    Those commands do not work at all on the PC version.
