Or maybe she should just clam up if you get the picture and quit cooking and cleaning until he wakes up and realizes its not a one way street. It takes two people working together to make it work.
Training comes in many forms.

No one likes being abused. Some people suffer from low self-esteem and/or depression and think they deserve that kind of treatment. You might suggest that she talk to her doctor about how she's been feeling.

Its way past training. Its action time as nothing is going to change. Every now and again, when it seems he will be taking care of himself, he makes a miraculous recovery and actually starts being nice.
No help, mind you, just being normal. Its like she hit the lottery until a few weeks a month and the same thing starts all over again.

You hit the nail with that one GG.
Most definitely a self esteem issue and mostly a financial one. She is way over weight, no more job, and jerk for a husband.
They have a bigggggg house worth lots of money and he has told her he is going nowhere and there is nothing she can do. He has indicated he will hurt himself and possibly her should it come to him being forced into something he does not like.
He has not contributed one cent to the household accept for the measly SS income he receives. Its very small as he has worked sparsely over the years they have been married.
HIS doctors have warned her to run, not walk. He see's several mental health professionals and they have both been counseled.
It is the unknown and the financial burden that keeps her there. Along with his coddling parents that say hes to sick and to "let it go".

Sorry about the rant. I needed to vent a little.
I am also sorry about the derail mods.

I'm sorry, RB. It's really difficult to watch someone you care about in a situation like that.
