It got worse by Season 9, where it's revealed he lied about Ted's wedding gift being his, he was stealing shampoo from the Farhampton hotel and cheated on Claudia with another woman. While not much is shown of their marriage proper, Claudia's behavior during their wedding suggests her over-controlling personality might have contributed to this.
