    1. Better driver - me. We only have one car anyway, and H let his license expire years ago.

    2. Better cook - me. For years I didn't really care about cooking, but I've started cooking now. It helps that I used to help my mom a lot growing up. I've always been more of a baker.

    3. Better dancer - I'll say that he's a more enthusiastic dancer. I'm just glad that he dances at all. He has 5 sisters and they always encouraged him to dance growing up.

    4. Better at saving money - H definitely. We're both pretty impulsive, but he's great at saving money.

    5. Better at planning ahead - I don't know if either one of us are great at planning. I tend to handle the details of vacations and things like that, but otherwise we mostly take things day-by-day.

    1. Better driver: Most definitely FH, driving makes me nervous because I haven't had my license long.

    2. Better Cook: Me. I have a wider range of meals that I am able to cook. He is better at chopping vegetables though if that counts for anything.

    3. Better Dancer: Me, I was on a hip-hop dance team all four years in college. My FH can barely dance on beat lol

    4. Better at saving: I am. He's a much harder worker than I am, but I am better at saving for the future.

    5. Better at planning ahead: ME by far lol He is more of a live in the moment type of person, so we balance each other well.

    1. Better driver

    We're both pretty equal. He's better at driving in busy cities though since he grew up in one!

    2. Better cook

    Him. I'm awful at cooking but extremely good at baking and he's the opposite! So usually he makes the main dish and I make the dessert!

    3. Better dancer

    Me, because he won't dance unless it's our wedding night haha.

    4. Better at saving money

    Him. I'm getting better though!

    5. Better at planning ahead

    Me. I'm a planner and he's a go with the flow kind of person!

    Better driver: I think we're both equal. He's a more cautious driver but he can get easily distracted (I yell at him all the time about using his phone while driving) whereas I'm a little bit more aggressive in my driving (acceleration, speeding).

    Better cook: Me for sure. I have a wider range of cooking skills than he does and more variety in cooking different kinds of foods.

    Better dancer: Absolutely me. He is pretty uncoordinated and pretty stiff when attempting to dance, lol, it's adorable but it's hard not to giggle a little bit.

    Better at saving money: Definitely him. He's the reason we've been so on top of saving for the wedding. I'm a very impulsive spender and have managed to keep it under control with the help of him as well.

    Better at planning ahead: I think I have the upper hand in planning ahead. Our wedding has been planned mostly by me and I've been on top of keeping everything on track. Also when we plan trips, I make sure everything is figured out (such as our honeymoon).

    Better driver: That's a tough one! I think he's actually a better driver, but I'm the one that always have to drive because he'll whine Smiley laugh

    Better cook: My husband is a WAY better cook than I am!

    Better dancer: ME!! But my husband would probably say he's better just to annoy me Smiley winking

    Better at saving money: Definitely me - I'm much better with our finances and I'm the one that pays all the bills. 💵

    Better at planning ahead: Me! But only in direct competition with each other, we're both horrible procrastinators - but I'm not quite as bad as he is!

    1. Better driver: We're both pretty safe drivers. He almost always has both hands on the wheel, while I'll occasionally drive one handed on long stretches of familiar roads. So, he'd probably say he's the better one. Smiley winking

    2. Better cook: Me. I cook more from scratch, but only slightly more. He has said that he wants to cook more once he moves in, so he might surpass me who knows?

    3. Better dancer: Hard to say. We both have pretty nerdy moves.

    4. Better at saving money: Him. Hands down. But he's had some advantages that I haven't in that department. But I'm getting better.

    5. Better at planning ahead: Me. I keep us on track for long term plans. But if I'm the framework of the machine, he's the nuts and bolts.

    1. Better driver - him, which he never lets me forget

    2. Better cook - though he's a great cook, I'd hate to rob myself of this title because I probably do more of the cooking and all of the baking, and I know and have studied more of the technical side, while he's just naturally good at throwing together certain things and grilling them up.

    3. Better dancer - me, though he's been surprisingly enthusiastic with letting me choreograph our first dance

    4. Better at saving money - I'd say we're both decent. I spend more impulsively (usually on clothes), but he spends more in general because he buys mostly expensive electronics, equipment, and big-ticket home items, but we probably end up saving the same percentage of our salaries, and I benefit from the things he buys too so it works out.

    5. Better at planning ahead - this is a complex question, I feel. I would say I'm probably the "planner" because, for big things I know are happening, like vacations, appointments, events, parties, the wedding, etc., I am the one who loves making lists, researching, etc. He's probably better, though, with thinking out and remembering to do day-to-day tasks (for example, he's a decent gardener and I can't remember to water a single plant), and I'd say overall he's got a better ability to visualize the future and helps keep us on goal for long-term plans.

    1. Better driver - I would say HE is the better driver, I tend to think I am but I like to speed and drive a bit unsafe Smiley smile

    2. Better cook- That is hard we are both latino, but I am going to take credit for this one.

    3. Better dancer- Hands down I break it down like no ones business any day any time and I am good at it. My honey has two left feet but sure tries his best Smiley heart

    4. Better at saving money- ME all day everyday- he likes to spend it without thinking

    5. Better at planning ahead - My mind is always planning the future. He plans trips very well whereas I go with the flow. I always think of what is next... If we had to chose I would pick ME Smiley smile

    #1- parallel parking holds a special place in my heart, especially because I drive a truck and he drives a Prius Smiley xd Get em, girl!

    1. Better driver- me except I drive faster so he does not feel that I do.

    2. Better cook- him for sure! I can bake and grill but everything else he's better at in the kitchen.

    3. Better dancer- me but that's not saying a whole lot haha!

    4. Better at saving money- me, I budget out all the monthly expenses every month.

    5. Better at planning ahead- both. He's better at planning for years in advance and I'm the queen of lists and tracking what needs to be done and by when.

    1. Better driver - I think I'm the better driver. He's from South Carolina, and California drivers are more aggressive than what he's used to.

    2. Better cook - We are both great at cooking, so that's hard to say. We teach each other.

    3.Better dancer - Probably me, but I'm not much of a dancer myself LOL.

    4.Better at saving money - Me for sure. He's always looking at stuff to buy just for the sake of having it, while I'm always saying if it's not a necessity, than no need for it right now.

    5. Better at planning ahead - That's a task we honestly do together. We always talk about what either needs to be done, or wants to be done and by what time frame.
