Nope, either DF does it himself or it goes to the dry cleaners.

DH works in an office so wears a suit, but neither of us iron his shirts. I just hang straight away and they dry unwrinkled.
I do iron shirts for him if we go to a wedding or similar. Mainly because he is so disorganised (he takes longer to get ready than DD and I) so its more a time thing. If it were reversed and I was running late, DH would iron my clothes. But, I don't buy clothes I need to iron.
My MIL irons everything (including underwear) so I told him when we moved in together that I don't iron anything, and he has never expected me to.

I do. I don't mind ironing. I set up a stool, put on some trashy tv and off I go. I like to see the ironing basket empty at the end. DH can iron, but I figure I do a better job, and he works full time and I don't.

Yep I do the ironing. DH does so many things for me (cooked breakfast every morning for example ) I like to be able to do something small for him too.
He definitely doesn't demand it of me though, I can see how that would tick you off.

My dh work uniform has changed & no longer needs ironing but i used to iron his old shirts. Even when i was working part time before dd came along i would do it. He never expected me to iron his shirts but apart from he is hopeless at it, im the one doing the washing anyway. It never bothered me. I used to iron as part of my proper job anyway.
In saying that though we do have that continuous struggle of who should be doing what in the house. Especially when i was working too, he'd still expect me to do most of the housework.

So DH has basically said im not doing my job as a SAHM. My job as a SAHM is to clean, cook, iron, laundry, look after the kids, garden. I feel like SH!T cos when i said 'you do realise you said im a sh!t SAHM/wife' he just raised his hands in agreement. Then he said hes not sure how much more he can take of it. Basically said he wants to leave me.

We've had this argument too. I do all the ironing except for DH's work shirts. They're very time consuming and I hate doing them.
When he pointed out that I was at home, I pointed out that I was at home to take care of the kids, and that's why I'd put my career on hold. If he had said to me seven years ago "I've had a promotion, we can now afford for you to stay home and iron my shirts" I would have said "No thank you".

My husband is a farmer his clothes are red dirt stained and ratty he would never expect me to iron them. I would if he had a different job and they needed doing not because he would expect it but because I love him and love looking after my family.
