Plaice, 33, of Thurlands Drove, Upwell, had previously admitted assault. The incident happened after Plaice returned home from work in a bad mood, and he drank 10 cans of lager, said Miss Haque.
He pulled cables out of the computer, and accused her of speaking to men on a chat website.
Plaice smashed a child's red chair, and a piece of wood he threw hit his wife's arm. She suffered a bruised arm.
Mitigating, Roger Glazebrook said Plaice had "exploded" after thinking about someone winding him up at work. He has since been referred to Drinksense.
