* ''Film/MonOncle'': Madame Arpel is an absurd parody of one. She's polishing her husband's car as he's driving it out the driveway. She serves her husband lunch, then makes him move to another table about eight feet away so she can serve coffee.

* Mistel from ''VideoGame/YggdraUnion'' always claims to be one, but although she does all the housework for her grandfather, she's not actually married -- her fiance ran off on her before the start of the game. She's very proud of her domestic skills, and they do not stop her from [[{{Badass}} kicking massive amounts of enemy ass]].

* ''Film/OneFootInHeaven'' (1941) is a pretty good example of how this trope used to be portrayed and how it comes off to a 21st century viewer. Hope Spence is the loving and supportive wife of a Protestant minister who is tending to his flock in early 20th-century Iowa. In 1941 the character of Hope was no doubt meant to be an inspiring example of a virtuous wife who supports her husband. To a 21st century viewer, however, Mrs. Spence may come off as an ExtremeDoormat. William makes her leave her family and come with him to the U.S., he tells her that she can't redecorate the dingy parsonage they move into because the parishoners won't like it, he tells her she can't dress nice because that might outshine the other ladies in the congregation, he tells her they have to go hungry because advertising for his wedding services is "too commercial", he refuses the much cushier posting in California that she wanted him to take, he disregards her wishes about naming their third child, and he forces her to leave for another crappy district just when things have been fixed up nicely in their Iowa home. At no point in the film does William ask her about any of these life choices; he tells her, and she obeys.

* Molly Weasley from ''Literature/HarryPotter'' is the homemaker of the family but she's also an ApronMatron. One would have to be {{badass}} to run a household with so many children and especially so when two of those children are TricksterTwins.
