Our expert says:
The Depression will respond, probably well, to proper treatment, and the marriage problems will respond to marriage counselling. If he feels hopelss and unhelpable when depressed, work on this when he is between depressions. Antidepressants can be very helpful, but MUST be taken consistently for at least 6 to 9 months to produce lasting benefits --- stopping before then usually leads to a return of the depression.
