I’m 4 years older than my wife and this situation was our first child, 38 years ago, as ‘Mr MOM’ my wife was reluctant to ask for my help. Back then it was rare for the father/husband to come forward and offer to help, as the wife’s Mother was usually involved or not far away. I would guess as that “macho” has broken down some over the years fathers are now more involved. Do you ask for your partners help and if so how do you go about it?
