Some couples find that chivalry dies a bit once children arrive because the focus shifts from spousal etiquette to the practicalities of raising a family.

are you really going to let your kid freeze while you stay warm in your husbands jacket? seriously it's one thing to be impolite but it's completely different when he CAN'T open your door because he needs to be buckling children in so they don't fall out of their seats...i think there's a middle ground and it's unfair to expect one parent to put any adult over the children's needs in any circumstance...they are innocent children, don't be selfish!
