What is the wife? A kid? That behavior in a husband would not only be disturbingly controlling, but insulting, demeaning, and a really rotten example for children. Children will see a really "off" role model for men. Also, they'll either see the role model for women as someone who is willing to go along with such behavior, or else someone who is incapable of extracting herself from such an unhealthy situation - neither of those versions of a role model is a positive, healthy one.
Besides, there's a good chance that husband doesn't have a clue about a whole lot of things involved with running a household NOR a clue about a whole lot of things involving the healthiest nurturing/guidance of children (he's already shown it in his unhealthy, controlling, behavior); so - really - this guy should have as little to do with his children as possible. He's clueless and/or disturbingly controlling. Not great to have around one's children.
Unless he's so controlling he'll arrange to scare his wife into not leaving him (in which case, she'll have to get help from authorities to get away from him), there's a good chance it's only a matter of time before this very small and/or misguided individual finds himself in divorce court.
