A reader tweeted us the following question: Can I ask my fiancée to not help me cook?

Here’s our Girl Next Door‘s advice.

Wound her pride now and prepare to be cooking (or eating out) for the rest of your marriage. I’m pretty sure she knows she’s not so hot in the kitchen, but this is a skill that can be mastered, so take a cooking class. The important thing is that she wants to spend time with you and is willing to try. One of the saddest things to watch in a relationship is when that effort sprung from the initial “I’ll try anything just to spend time with you” dies. Hold on to that little piece of magic.
