Our expert says:
Many spouses, male or female, are uncooperative, lazy and dishonest, and this is not usually considered to be abuse. All unpleasantness is not abuse. Now, that said, he sounds a pretty unsatisfactory partner or spouse, and to expect too much of his wife and far too little from himself. Counselling is the only route that could put this right, but would need to be lasting and to have his sincere co-operation, or else it needs to be faced that he has no real motivation to change and won't do so, and then you may need to consider separation and divorce.
