Is it true, that husband is associated in his wife's sin but the wife is not associated in her husband's sin?
Example: Robber Valia's wife told him that I have not associated with your sin. Later he became great sage Valmiki.
Is there any scripture reference in Hinduism about it?

Husband being associated in wife's sins
The wife's sins definitely affect the husband. This is mentioned in the scriptures.
Mantridoshascha rAjAnam jAyAdoshah patim yathA |
TathA prApnotyasandeham shishyapApam gurum priye ||
Just like a king gets affected by the sins committed by his ministers,
a husband gets affected by the sins committed by his wife, likewise,
without any doubt, O Beloved, a disciple's sins affect the Teacher
[KulArnava Tantram 11.110] Wife being associated in husband's sins
Need to check.
