I married a woman that is very independent and have only had stern looks a time or two because of WoW. Yay me! Sorry AFK. Talk to your wife. Better now than later. Get it out there and do what the drama mamas say. Much wisdom is to be had in their words. Peace.

My wife and I have had an agreement since we were dating. Wednesday and Friday nights are guaranteed alone time for both of us. It doesn't matter where we go or what we do, that is our time. I choose to spend mine raiding on those 2 nights. If she wants to go out, she leaves our 2 kids at home-- why not? We even send the kids to different areas of the house to do whatever they want. We call it "private time" and everyone takes it, because we all need it.There have been times that we didn't raid and her response has always been "hope you find something to do". We balance this out by making Saturday a strict date night. No one can inturrupt it, unless we choose to have friends over together. Saturday day is a family day, and we spend it outside as often as possible. Also, she plays (started when she was on bed rest while preggars) but very casually, so she understands the nature of committing to a 5 man or a raid.Creating an understanding and having an open conversation about your personal time is the only way to go. Besides, its just a game. If it comes down to it I would rather have my wife happy.

My wife and I play together. We also recently became full time college students to finish our degree goals (Doctorate for me, Masters for her). The way we handle WoW is simple. We play at certain times that we schedule and we don't play the other times. A Marriage is work, and if you find yourself slipping, do yourself and your wife a favor. Sit down and talk through things. Explain to her what WoW does for you or means to you. And then suggest that you set aside time for WoW for you, time where you handle whatever while she has her own alone time, or "Private" time as the above poster said, and most importantly schedule way more time together.You can play WoW, and even raid, without playing every day.
