Hi, Thanks for your question.
I'm afraid that in order to become naturalised as a UK citizen one must first have obtained indefinite leave to remain. For a spouse to do this they must obtain a spouses visa and remained in that catefory for 2 years. To obtain a spouses visa a person must intend to settle permanently with a UK citizen in the UK and to obtain ILR thereafter they must (generally) not have left the UK for longer than 90 days in any one year period.
On the basis that you do not intend to settle permenantly it would seem that a spouses visa application is not appropriate nor would it be granted.
There are similaly restrictive residential requirement which must be met in order to qualify to be naturlised.
I'm afraid that when he wishes to travel here he will have to continue to apply for visas in the normal way.
Sorry it could not be better news.
