It is sad that in the 21 century, in large cities, many couples still have to live like that. You could get a small electric counter-top oven, but that's not really as good as a real oven. I had one when I was in college.

I once lived in what is called a 'studio' apartment. 3 rooms; 1 to live and sleep in and a small but fully functional kitchen and a small but fully functional bathroom. I actually enjoyed it and learned to make efficient use of space. Even-though I now live in a house with many rooms, I still spend most of my time at home in one room (when I'm not sleeping or doing other bedroom stuff). My wife says I live like a hermit.
