[[IThoughtItMeant Not to be confused with]] WifeHusbandry, which is when an adult raises a child with the intent of eventually marrying them.

* ZigZagged on ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'' with [[ManChild Andy]]. In the first season he is utterly dependent on his much more adult and responsible girlfriend Anne, culminating when it comes out that the broken leg he's used as an excuse to have her wait on him hand and foot actually healed some time ago. This could count as a {{Deconstruction}} since this is very much ''not'' depicted as a normal or healthy relationship for either of them. Then {{averted}} and sometimes mildly {{inverted}} when Andy dates (and later [[TheyDo marries]]) April, who had been a DeadpanSnarker but becomes much more carefree and fun-loving under his influence. Neither of them is especially mature or responsible, but being significantly older, when someone ''does'' have to emerge as the adult voice of reason, it's usually Andy.

* Despite not being married, in {{Dumbing of Age}} Walky [[http://www.dumbingofage.com/2012/comic/book-2/05-saturdays-all-right-for-slighting/moms/ invokes this trope when he temporarily breaks up with Dorothy]]. Although it's clear that despite resenting how patronizing her behavior was, Walky [[ManChild doesn't really want to "grow up"]] and likes how dominant Dorothy is in the relationship. Likewise, while she has been embarrassed by him occasionally Dorothy definitely [[WeaknessTurnsHerOn enjoys Walky's juvenile and submissive personality on some level.]]

A rather awful DoubleStandard; the notion of a girlish wife in need of control and protection by a fatherly husband [[DeadHorseTrope rarely appears today and]] [[ValuesDissonance is largely perceived]] [[MostWritersAreMale as overtly sexist]], (similarly, the HenpeckedHusband scenario is considered nowadays to be a big TakeThat against the sole idea of a woman pulling the weight on the family-- see the description above) but this one persists. There are UnfortunateImplications on both sides-- men are told that they're useless and incompetent, at least in the realm of family life, and should really just let their wives take charge; women are told that they [[MenAreChildish can't expect their husbands to act like grownups]] and should just resign themselves to having to carry their husband's weight responsibility-wise and being regarded as the boring killjoy of the family for it.

** It's also averted with the main couple. Despite Hajime's otaku tendencies, he's shown doing just as much housework as Kaoru.

* In the Suite Life On Deck episode "Maddie On Deck", Maddie '''inadvertently''' gets engaged to an 8 year old. She learns that the only way to get out of the marriage was for Zack to duel him. After Zack loses Round 1, Maddie invokes this trope

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': Randy Marsh is very much the sort of irresponsible ManChild who needs this... but half the time wife Sharon [[GenreSavvy doesn't bother any more]]. More often, it's son Stan who gets sucked into the role of StraightMan to his dad's Crazy Scheme of the Week.
