* 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
-->'''Maddie:''' (pretending to call her parents) Hey mom, hey dad. Yeah, I'm not coming home; I'm spending the rest of my life ''raising my husband.''

to:

* ''Series/That70sShow'': Kitty sometimes acts like this toward Red. This is most evident in "Red Sees Red", where Kitty actually threatens to ''quit her job'' to keep an eye on Red and protect her kids from his wrath.

** It even expands to include Ted in an epsiode where he briefly moves in with Robin and Marshall and Lily realizes he owned all the useful stuff like towels and he bought all the food.

* ''TheCosbyShow'', though Cliff Huxtable is not a BumblingDad, and this one possibly isn't an example of CloserToEarth; Clair Huxtable was more practical but not really morally superior, and in fact was sometimes *indrawn breath* wrong.
* Debra and Ray Barone in ''EverybodyLovesRaymond'' fit this to a tee in the mid-to-later seasons of the show. Ray is actually more of a nebbish. In the earlier seasons of the show, Raymond was portrayed as being rather clever and witty, at one point even winning a national award for his writing skills. In the later seasons, he was seemingly dumbed down to make Debra look better by comparison, all so that the show could more easily shill Debra and use this trope.

to:

* In ''Film/{{Suffragette}}'', the protagonist's marriage is an average one [[ValuesDissonance for the time the film takes place in.]] When she returns from serving prison time for participating in a demonstration for women's rights, her first question to her husband is whether he has eaten enough - she doesn't consider him capable of feeding himself. And she's right; he answers that a (female) neighbour cooked for him and their son. He also proves himself utterly incapable of taking care of the son while the protagonist is away, to the point that the child is running around in pyjamas on the streets.
