    My husband literally didn’t know how to make grilled cheese when we moved in together. It’s amazing he didn’t starve in the seven years between leaving his parents’ home and moving in with me. lol.

    Fiance has occasionally started dinner for me (putting water onto boil, cooking onion or ground beef) but that’s pretty much it. 

    We eat out about once or twice a month.  It would be weekly or more if we lived in a bigger area…  our options are pretty limited around here 🙂

    It won’t let me vote, but my Fiance cooks 7 days a week.

    God Bless him.

    I can’t cook, but I do make a mean box of Velveeta Shells N Cheese!!!

    In summer, he grills probably 3-4 times a week.  I’ll make the sides.  Otherwise, it’s generally me cooking, but I enjoy cooking and he doesn’t.  His cooking skills have definitely improved since we started dating though.

    We pretty much split it evenly, depending on who has had a harder day. We cook together a lot too.

    Of course, there’s always frozen pizza if niether of us want to cook!!

    Fiance is an amazing cook and he loves to do it.  I enjoy cooking too.  Because my Fiance gets home earlier than I do, he does the cooking on weekdays. If we do not go out to eat on the weekends, then I’m usually the one to cook meals then.

    I cook and bake all of the major stuff; he knows how to use the microwave and fix cereal 🙂

    I am the one who cooks 80% of the time but if it were left up to him, we wouldn’t necessarily starve but we would probably run out of money because we would be eating out most of the time.

    The vast majority of the time, he cooks. In fact, he’s currently in the kitchen, making dinner. However, when he cooks, we tend to have stuff like breakfast burritos, turkey sandwiches, etc – low-key food prep. When I cook, it means we’re having people over and I’m usually in the kitchen for hours. So, he does the everyday cooking, I take care of the special event cooking.

    My guy does ALL the cooking and also does all the dishes!! He’s a keeper!

    ETA: Just in case you think I sit around doing nothing, I do all the other cleaning and the laundry. So, we think it’s fair.
