If your spouse refuses to work with you, then it is time to divorce and find another place to live.
If your spouse is the type who does not want to be left alone, then take some time off. Do something else. While you are away, your spouse will be more likely to allow their freedom. If you are taking time off and your spouse wants you to come back, then it is a problem.
