My wife (Ysolda) is acting strangely.
Aside from the fact that she is having an affair with my housecarl (Onmund) and that the only reason I don't chain them up and sacrifice them to various Gods and Daedra at the sacrificial ruins in the woods next to my house is that I need someone to protect my daughters while I am away conquering the realm through trade and destruction.

I have hearthfire and live with Ysolda, two daughters and a housecarl at Lakeview manor. About a week ago (ingame) Ysolda was kidnapped by bandits whom I immediately slaughtered. Since her return she has been acting very strangely. For example she walks into walls, does quick half turns on the spot for hours at a time, walks backwards, or just not moving at all for hours until I use the wait command where she disappears to the opposite end of the house to continue her qwerky behaviour.

Whilst a part of her behaviour can acceptable be accredited to the ♥♥♥♥, torture and mental scarring of the kidnapping ordeal, I believe she is glitched.

I have tried Disable and Enable with the console but that doesn't seem to have done much and I'm not sure what other commands would be applicable to the sitation.

Whilst I continue to wake up with the Lover's Comfort effect, my heart and bed grow cold and broken.

This is what you get when your wife is cheating on you with the housecarl: she got kidnapped, abused (mentally and physical), she probably died. She probably loves you so much, that her ghost is haunting you. I am so sorry for you that you have lost the love of your life, but just carry on! She is still with you! Probably this wont help you, but I just had to put it down, sorry.

Do a search on Google, I've read about that problem somewhere but forgot if there was a fix or not.

You picked the wrong wife or the wrong house.

Ysolda should live inside a wall protected city full of guards, she's weak, a delicate thing.

Lakeview Manor is probably the most infested place in all Skyrim: dragons, giants, vampires, bandits, bears, wolves everyone want to pass from that way becouse it's the only pass beetween a chain of mountains. And a necromancer and a bunch of mudcrabs are your close neighbours.

The other two Hearthfire houses, although positioned near infested burial grounds and giants camps, are MUCH more peacefull.

In Skyrim, if you want to live in the country, choose a wife that can sport an heavy armor and a battleaxe. Aela the Huntress, Mjoll the Lioness, Borgahk Hearth of Steel to name few.

Solution to your problem: end the poor life of the broken Ysolda, disband your adopted children, bribe the priests of Mara (mods) and marry again (mods). Equip your wife with country facilities (heavy armor, battleaxe), employ new children, build another house and make yourself another life.

NOTE: you might want a female houscarl.

Personal experience: when bandits kidnapped Aela the Huntress i rushed to their cave to find them all dead and my wife greeting me while walking back home.

Not a helpful link as far as fixes go, but something to show you you're not alone having trouble with that quest.

LOL. Me too! See link above. And that sound like the best possible outcome for this particular side-quest
