From what I see, many wives do not support their husbands' ministry, but either have their own non-overlapping ministry, or simply are not interested in participating for other reasons, such as preferring more worldly pursuits.
For most of human history the primary social construct was the family. The idea of a help meet for the husband was more applicable in this situation.
As the world has become more collectivized, the importance of and even many of the functions of family have been taken over by the state and the employer. What is left is often even unrecognizable as family. For example, Feminism is more of a Marxist construct and relevant to the new world in that it deals with the woman and her new "spouse" the state/employer.
Many people look at a phrase such as "help meet" and think it archaic and irrelevant. What has changed is that our society is transitioning away from even the concept of family.
When Hudson Taylor arrived in China in the 1800s, he observed in how the Chinese treated their women and that English women had no idea how much they owed their better status to Christianity.
We should be able to discern Satanic schemes including the destruction of families.
2 Corinthians 2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we
are not ignorant of his devices.
Some focus on women who have not been faithful to the instruction to be a "help meet". However, given the effectiveness of Satanic "devices", there is plenty of blame to go around. How many husbands know enough to be worthy of a "help meet"?
Many "families" are two parents and two children each with their own friends, interests, and activities. The living arrangement is more like roommates than family.
Are wives still called to be a “help meet” for their husbands?
Yes, and their husbands are still called to lead their families. It is just very hard for people who have been raised in the grip in which Satan holds the world. Even many churches fail to have answers that could help Christian families live according to the Bible.
Husbands and wives caught in the worldly forces Satan has set loose to destroy families have a difficult time. The concept of wives deferring to their husbands and husbands loving and cherishing their wives seems almost worthy of contempt in today's society.
In a way, it may begin to be easier for Christians to live Biblically as the world grows in hostility to Christ. There may be less confusion as the world shows its true nature.
2 Timothy 3:1-5 This know also, that in the last days perilous times
shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous,
boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful,
unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers,

heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
