I promise, CharlieD, I won't divorce him.
Good, don't. Actually I know how you feel. My wife doesn't eat any seafood, and I love it. When we get to travel, I purposly pick places that serve feesh, I love good sushi. You see I'm picky too, but ony when it comes to good food versus bad food.

Ok, I havent read through the entire thread, so...my first thought is dont bring your hubby to a sushi restaurant if he doesnt like it in the first place, and especially rotating sushi. Sushi is an aquired taste, very personal to each of us. Picture your hubby taking you out to a restaurant you hate :) My hubby hates chinese, so thats off bounds for us. Me and my daughter get take out when we're in the mood for that, and make sure to get my hubby something he loves.

Noone should be forced to eat what they "hate". Dining out should be a pleasant experience, particularly since you're paying to get what you want.

Re picky eaters: It's a matter of taste. You mentioned his whole family is like that. Could have something to do with what food-eating habits mothers teach their children. The majority of picky eaters seem to be children and men.

As far as "curing" someone, to me, life/relationships are about compromise & respecting one another. I find the more one trys to force someone into doing something they don't want to do, the further away they will go.

I had one friend, whatever restaurant we went to, she would find something wrong & send it back. You can't please everyone. Maybe food & psychology are not far apart.

Good points, Mish. There's a lot of baggage attached to food in some families, and you're not going to change all that by forcing an attitude.
