Dear CeCe – My Ex Took All the Cookware

Dear CeCe,

I came home from work yesterday and all my cookware was gone. My ex-partner told me she was going to stop by and pick up some of the items that she left that had been her grandmothers. I had no idea it was every piece of cookware.

Should I try to negotiate the return of a few pieces? I really can’t afford to go out and replace all of it. Just thankful she left the coffee pot.

– My Ex Took All The Cookware

Dear My Ex Took All the Cookware:

Not a fun situation. It sounds like the miscommunication was how much of the cookware was her grandmother’s. I’m so sorry that you were left high and dry. No one likes to be surprised that way.

If you have a good to decent relationship with her, it might be okay to have a conversation with her about your surprise that nothing was left. Based on her response, you could ask her to replace some of it with new cookware. If the probability is low that she would follow up and replace it, it’s probably not a conversation worth having.

I highly recommend that you use the gift registry on the Splitsvil website and pick out the cookware items you need or would like to have replaced. https://splitsvil.net/registry/. As we go through a breakup, we have friends and family who ask how they can help to support us as we transition back to being single. Now is a great time to take them up on their offer. Share with them what’s happened and send them a link to the registry. Most people will be happy that they can do something tangible.

I’m sure you will be cooking in no time at all.
