My DP is in the navy. I don't iron his camo uniform, but will occasionally iron his whites or ceremonials. I normally leave it for him to do it though

Not a stay at home mum (but will be this year) but yes I usually iron DP's work shirt in the morning when he's home. I'm a crap ironer though and he's a bit OCD so sometimes he will do it if he's earlier (we're never organised enough to do them any other time) or sometimes i do it the night before. Having said that DP cooks most nights and does a lot around the house.
He doesn't expect it at all, and i don't mind. If i'm a SAHM and while i've been home while pregnant I do all his washing and ironing but i really don't mind. Clothes washing is my favourite chore.

Yes I do but it is not expected of me.

No, never, ever. Nor does he ask or expect it.

I HATE ironing! Even though I'm now a SAHM we still have an ironing lady, but only for DPs work shirts. Everything else goes unironed. It only goes back in the wash again at the end of the day, haha!

Nope...I generally don't iron anything. Really hate it and for most of our clothes a quick spin in the dryer de-wrinkles well.

Same as water lily - I'd laugh. Laugh and laugh and not do it.
I explained this to my df many years ago when I first became a SAHM and suddsnly he asked me to iron HIS shirts.
Goes like this - I don't buy things that require ironing because I don't iron. Ever. I just don't do it. If things I wear get crinkled I send them to vinnies because I won't even iron something that I'm going to wear.
I confess a few times I have ironed something for him, when I'm feeling nice. So maybe I'm 6 years I've done it like 4 times.

What I do do for him though is when I wash shirts I put them on a hanger straight away or I hang them by their collar I find they don't get creased and if that's not good enough for him that's his issue not mine. I have tiny humans who need me to survive.

In the eight years dh and I have been together, I have ironed for him a grand total of ONE time. It was just before Xmas last year and we were going to a christening. If he expected that of me he would be very let down indeed
