Is it "mandatory" that I cook EVERY night? Can't we just have some leftovers too.. ?
I keep running out of ideas on what to cook, too. I prefer the simple stuff since I go to school and work too (thus, very tired after work)

You should have leftovers. And there is nothing wrong with cold foods for dinner like sandwiches and salads... Or simple things like a can of soup.
Have him cook once in a while. If he gives you drama about it, then ask "Well, what if we were married and I was sick or just had surgery or something? How would you feed me and our kids?"

I don't find anything wrong with leftovers. I am a huge pasta fan, so I usually cook a lot of spaghetti (I just boil some spaghetti noodles and use jarred sauce), Hamburger and Tuna Helpers, etc. Sometimes I'll just fix a salad or I'll even have a bowl of cereal for dinner. Tacos are pretty easy as well, just cook and season the ground beef and buy all of the rest of your ingredients. You may have to chop up a few vegetables, but that's it.
