Seems i got the sh!t end of the stick then cos i just asked him 'so, im the SAHM and its my job to iron'. His reply 'yes'.
We just arent getting along anymore. I dont get it
I do it occasionally but will tell him to leave them and ill do them, he has never asked (or told) me to do them.
OP it is not your job to iron his clothes. He does not get to decide what your "jobs" are, he is your partner not your employer. If you wanted to do it then that is totally cool but you don't and he is not asking in a respectful way, if at all. If I were you I just wouldn't do it anymore, let him know you have more important things to do but you will be happy to give him a lesson in using the iron if he doesn't know how.
Yep sure is my job. He's happy to help with other house hold chores but hates ironing. So do I but seeing as though he works I lose lol
I've been a SAHM for 7+ years and it is definitely not expected of me. DH loves and appreciates me and values my contribution to our family.
I do. DH is terrible at ironing and I hate to see him leave the house in a wrinkled shirt!
Nope. We live a crinkly existence, I don't own one.
DH wears suits and business shirts daily, he does expect me to iron them however even when I used to work I'd iron his clothes, I saw him iron a shirt years ago and it was tragic so I do it. It does bug me that he expects to have options, if its washed he wants it hanging ready to go in case he feels like wearing it... I have less options of outfits than he does! Anyway he's offered to take the ironing to a service multiple times so he does give me that option, I just feels its a waste of me money.
