I'm sorry it's come down to that decision for you, I hope all works out OK for you and your spouse.
When mine gave me the blessing to get my first bike, I honestly don't think she expected me to become as passionate about riding as I became. She's always worried about me when I ride, and sometimes that worry's risen to the point of conflict. So compromises have been made. I don't ride as much or as long as I'd prefer to, or spend as much time working on the bike as I want. On the other hand, happy wife = happy life.
If it's a good day to wash the bike, it's a better day to ride the bike.
