The tiles can be installed perfectly with little problems. It sounds like you husband can easily handle this project with a little guidance. If you use a high grip mastic such as Omnigrip, you can place each tile exactly in place with no 'slip' or 'sag'. The only thing left is to determine where the tiles go. You can plot lines on the walls, use a level, a laser, tape measures, whatever floats your boat to get the tiles evenly spaced. The pictures below show a recent backsplash where this method was followed. No spacers were used.
