/\This. Married for 8 years in January. "The" Wife is meant to give an unbalanced title of authority when refering to her in an attempt to not compromise yourself in a situation. For example, not sure about hanging out with someone or making a purchase you're on the fence about. Getting out of it by needing to check with the overbearing other half is a way of excusing yourself. Purely a defensive mechanism but others can feel like a term of endearment.
