I received a similar response from my former employer (wife) when I was accepted by the LAPD many moons ago. We compromised so I joined the SDSO. Back then; San Diego was considered somewhat of a lower risk in her mind. Frankly, I didn’t see any difference between being shot in San Diego vs. Los Angeles but whatever...
My current fiancée is not at all happy that I own and carry a gun. Fact is, and in my experience, a lot of women do tend to share your wife’s opinion. I found it difficult to explain to some of my female friends that the culture we live in isn’t all about Barbie Dolls and pigtails. In fact, I told my Italian sweetheart that I would carry after we’re married so take it or leave it. She asked me if I was choosing between her and my guns, and I simply replied ‘I don’t want to be married to you unless I can protect you.’ Apparently, she accepted that to some degree, and I guess we're Ok.
BTW: Don't dare take the countermeasure I chose as a suggestion. You’re already married so keep it that way and work around it.
