I'm a single mom, but my ex-husband would only ever cook on the grill.

What about your spouse/partner?  Does he (or she) ever cook for you?

No. He has a lot of truly great qualities, but the ability to cook is not one of them. And I do the grilling, too, mostly because I love to grill:)

Yes. He's a lifesaver a lot of nights as I'm struggling to cook, nurse, do homework and entertain a 2 year old.

My hubby cooks whenever he gets the chance. He loves to cook, but with his work schedule it's usually me that does the cooking so we can eat at a decent time.

 Yep. Usually a couple nights a week. Last night was salmon. Tonight he's making stroganoff.

My Dh grills in the summer. Otherwise the kitchen is my domain. I love to cook and the boys benefit from my love of making meals. So, it works...

Same here.  Mine does everything else around the house (if needed or asked) but as far as cooking that's a big fat hell no.  Unless it's something in the microwave and he has to read the instructions each and every time.  I internally roll my eyes at this, but then remember I can't fix a computer like he can.

I do most of the cooking, cleaning, and caring for the kids. I work full time, but am home 4 days a week. My bf is in his last year of pharmacy school and he is just sooo busy. He used to do a lot more cooking when he wasn't so stressed about school.
