Wife

A wife is a female partner in a continuing marital relationship.
The term continues to be applied to a woman who has separated from her partner, and ceases to be applied to such a woman only when her marriage has come to an end, following a legally recognized divorce or the death of her spouse. On the death of her partner, a wife is referred to as a widow, but not after she is divorced from her partner.

If this is the case that you are in, then such a relationship is not a healthy thing at all. You must try to find means of making him cease such conduct, if you have not yet tried, and then intervention, if that does not work. 

In my opinion, a wife does not deserve to be treated in such a way, and a husband being flirtatious with other women is certainly not the traits of a Muslim. 

Please watch this short clip on how a wife should deal with her promiscuous husband:

With prayers for your success

Mut'ah marriage is a way to save people from falling into sinful acts but such type of marriage has conditions which must be fulfilled. If you need to save yourself from falling into sinful act through going for Mut'ah marriage, you need to get your Muslim wife's permission if you want to do the Mut'ah with a woman from People of Book (Ahlul Kitab) like Christians or Jews.

It is permissible to have birth control measures as far as the effect of it is temporary. Birth control measures becomes not allowed when it's effect is permanent. Birth control should not kill a zygote which has been already formed. Preventing the formation of the zygote is allowed, but if the zygote has been formed by the unity of the male sperm with the female egg, then it will be not permissible to kill it or abort it.

In Islam, a man should groom himself and look nice for his wife.

It is related from Imam Rida (A): "The women of Bani Israel deviated from the path of chastity because their men were not bothered about cleanliness and looking nice." The Imam then added: "What you expect of your wife, she expects the same from you."

It is also related that Allah is beautiful and loves beauty, and loves to see the signs of His blessings on His servants.

The Prophet (S) used to give attention to looking appropriate and presentable. Here are some narrations on some of his grooming habits, including combing and oiling his hair and beard: https://www.al-islam.org/sunan-nabi-sayyid-muhammad-husayn-tabatabai/cha...

Of course, different people have different levels of motivation and interest in these things, and different understandings of what it means to be tidy.

So yes, you can ask, and yes he should make some efforts. Even if it were not emphasized in Islam, it is still good to try to accomodate one's spouse's requests as long as they are ethical and doable. However, it is difficult to force someone to change. 

Perhaps you can encourage him, if you have not already, by giving him some nice beard oil. There are also some websites dedicated to beards and men who are proud of their beards. After all, a beard is a symbol of a manly man (for men who can grow them, of course) and so it is nice if he takes pride in it. 

Also since the beard is symbolic of Islam, it is nice to look after one's beard because it is part of the public image of Islam.

Bismillah, Salaam alaykum, If someone is making material demands of you, knowing that you can’t afford it, then this can be a psychological way of devaluing you as a person, especially if this is done in front of your children. If it is done in front of your children, then this can be a form of parental alienation. I can suggest you go on youtube and look up ‘traits of the female narcissist’. There is a channel called Narcisssistic Abuse Healing and the title is 12 Typical Behaviors Of A Female Narcissist.

Thank you for your question. The truth is that you can never fully know. Marriage means sharing a life path and many times that path has many unforeseen twists and turns. You won't be the same person 10 years from now and neither will your spouse. In all honesty we just make an educated guess, a leap of faith, we stack our chips and put the rest in Allah's hands. The reasons behind why marriage is like this is a mixture of modern attitudes and culture. Finding love is a process of growing together rather than finding a finished product. Everyone has faults and makes mistakes. There are certain qualities to look for but its only after going past the surface that you will get a picture of who you have really chosen. Some things will be as expected others will be disappointing but some things will be a pleasant surprise. Some problems will be your own doing and some successes will be unintentional. In the majority of cases marriage will work out will a good attitude, commitment, kindness, respect, giving each other space, showing love, and common goals. 
 

May you always be successful

Wife is not allowed to refuse fulfilling her husband's sexual needs if she is not in her menstruation or post-natal or any other medical reason. Refusing intimacy with her husband is a sinful act.

Husband should try to nicely convince his wife including removing any reason which might have caused her to refuse intimacy. He should be very clean and wear perfume which she like and try to talk to her nicely to make her ready to respond to him.

After doing all that, if she continues to refuse intimacy with her husband, she might need counselling from trusted persons from her female relatives e.g. her mother, her sister etc.

She can be advised to seek guidance from trusted religious scholars or consultants.

Avoid using pressure on your wife because it might give wrong results. Intimacy in its best form is a result of a human delicate feeling, but if she is not ready for it in its best form, she should never deny giving her husband whatever she can to save him from thinking to go elsewhere to fulfill his natural needs. That is why Islam made it compulsory on the wife to offer what she can to meet the needs of her husband.
