Zakat

A friend I know wants to give zakat and knows that if we give zakat to our relatives or near ones we get more sawab. Her question is, her husband has wealth below nisab. She was earning prior to marriage but is now jobless. She can pay zakat on her savings. Her question is, Is it permissible and encouraged to give zakat to her husband? Her husband and her have a decent lifestyle which makes the situation confusing. Thank you.
