If your wife doesn't like a crate, then I'd use an exercise pen. It can open up as wide as you want it to. If you don't mind him using pee pads I'd paper the pen with them on one side so he has no choice but to pee on them, and put his bed on the other side. Now he has 2 choices, hold it, or use the pads.
I don't know if you're doing it, but you should be making pottying outside the most rewarding experience every. He potties outside and as soon as he is done he gets a very yummy treat, and lots of praise. If he does not potty outside, or on the pads, then he does not get any freedom in the house. Untrained puppies and dogs should not have the freedom to wander the house and pick a spot to pee. If he acts like a puppy when it comes to soiling the house then you need to treat him like an untrained puppy.
