Here's a Meg-Fact...this September, I will have been married 10 years.   During that time, I've NEVER had a working oven in my house.   For the last 5 or so years, I've not even had an oven (except a toaster over) and only two small eyes work on my stove.    We do have a gas grill and a foreman grill, thankfully.   I can't cook anyway, so it really doesn't make much difference.   lol
