Cooking will sure make life easier and a good tasting food will make it way more bearable.  Anyway, the stereotype of the woman cooking may not hold these days so should the man at least by a little competent in cooking?

OK, what cooking skills do you and your partner have?

My partner and I both love to cook, and we love to get into the kitchen together. I don’t have many common interests with my partner, cooking is something that we can both do and become better at. And I believe that those couples that do enjoy cooking together are significantly more satisfied in all areas of their lives than couples who don’t cook together.

I think it's the normal way of life that women go on to become the house chef, not that I like to admit it, but mostly because the way that my family has turned to be, all of the females partners cook.

As long as my fella goes to work and brings home the $$, I'm not to fussed!  :P

I think both partners should know how to cook well - but that doesn't mean they will cook in equal amounts.  It's all dependent on the living situation.  I mean, some people have to work more than others (as someone already sort of mentioned).

I think everyone should know how to cook. Everyone needs to know how to take care of themselves. You should at least know how to make a handful of dishes. They don't have to be top quality or anything, but if you can't cook for yourself—regardless of gender—I really have to question some things about you.

I am the better cook and baker in our household, but my husband is a good cook as well. (He is not a baker, but he also just doesn't like to do it.) When I had our first child, I'd say he took over cooking dinners for at least a month, maybe even longer. Now that I'm about to have our second, he's planning on doing it again. It makes things a lot easier during the newborn period. Actually, it just makes things easier in general. I love the ability to say, "Ugh, I just don't have the energy to cook tonight. Could you do it?"

Both of us in the house loves to cook and it is one of our fashion to cook delicious food for our family and for some important occasions. Honestly most of the time my partner is assigned for the cooking since she is the most person in house. I mainly do the cooking whenever my partner is not available to do it. My kids always love my cooking because it really taste good and one of their favorite also.

We both enjoy cooking - I don't think it needs to be something that just one partner in a relationship does, but something that both people can do together! We actually enjoy cooking a lot, so it doesn't feel like a chore to us.

We each have dishes that we specialize in, so it's nice that both of us make different dishes - it just means we have a bigger repertoire of things that we cook. My husband is awesome at cooking a lot of Japanese and Thai dishes, I'm better at Italian!

Some hyper-macho cultures might say cooking is women's work - like they would say about a lot of other things.  Nonetheless, that's being too narrow-minded.  Anyway, a stranded man who hates/cannot do cooking will be forced to eat bland stuff I think.
