Welcome to ThisIsMS. It sounds like a good opportunity for your husband to optimize his diet and nutrition and eliminate proinflammatory factors. Some things that I would recommend in this area include eliminating trans fat, minimize saturated fat, use omega-3 fish oil, get his vitamin D3 levels checked (25-hydroxy D3 should be 60 ng/mL), drink green tea for its antiinflammatory EGCG antioxidant. Other ideas, as well as more information on these suggestions, can be found on the Diet and Natural Approach forums. In addition, a good exercise regimen is also important. My suggestion is to do what's fun so you'll be motivated to do it.

To answer your question, it sounds like your husband falls into the category called preclinical MS which is the first division in the plot below. This is where the attacks don't produce symptoms and the brain has sufficient neuroplasticity to compensate for any deficits.
