Yep that's me too..
I offered to iron DHs shirts once as a nice surprise/loving gesture..
He looked at me, horrified, then smiled sweetly and said..
'Ohhh... no... no babe.... that's okay..
He then slowly backed away. Point taken DH!! hahaha..

My DH does his own ironing.
He also does his own washing after I accidentally left a tissue in one of my pockets and it went through the wash and his clothes ended up looking like they had been on skiing trip...

We've lived in the house we're in for 2 years and I literally have NFI where my iron or ironing board is... I think the last thing I ironed was the shirt DH wore to our wedding 5 years ago

I don't iron. I hang his wet shirts on hangers and they dry without wrinkles. Anything that needs ironing gets chucked in the dryer

I'm someone who can't stand wrinkled looking clothes, so our clothes do get ironed, but my DH insists on ironing all of our clothes. He is very particular and needs to iron for work and he doesn't mind ironing, so every Sunday night he asks me what needs ironing and I must admit I never mind!

Whether it has been building for years or he simply snapped one day doesn't change the fact that the OPs husband isn't treating her with respect.
There is a world of difference between ironing someone's shirts when you are happy to do so and ironing them because that person has berated you into doing it.

I would only iron his clothes if we were going out somewhere nice and the alternative would be that he went and looked like unkempt. That's really just a selfish move - I wouldn't care unless he was going out WITH ME because I wouldn't want people wondering why I was with such a slob. lol.
I would never iron his work clothes (though Tradie clothes don't exactly require it, but still... even in office attire I wouldn't bother).
