Both Hebrew Wikipedia and this publication of Har Etzion Yeshiva source the origin of this law as Deut 21 (23).

comment A wife wants to stop going to the mikva. What does that mean for the husband?
The question asks "what consequences each spouse incurs upon themselves" in the described situation. Your interesting answer does not address this direct question. I am voting it down.

comment Witnesses and the Ketubah
@DanF You might like to look here where it says that a shomer-shabbat is essential (but need not be FFB). Then try here where the question is asked “If someonse realized in retrospect that he was passul eidut (witness) at a wedding for not being shomer shabbat – what should he do.It says: many opinions maintain that the couple would not be considered married according to Torah law.”

comment Counting the Omer non-verbally
All three sources refer to healthy individuals. It would be interesting to know what the first two sources would say when writing was the only available method because of ill-health.
