In retrospect, that would've sent my employer the message "Look how high-income my DH is!" and there was certainly no reason to do that.

There are lots of reasons for increase in withholding besides a spouse's wages. Rent income and capital gains are two of them. Alimony and interest income are two others.

There shouldn't be any discussion about the whys. Just turn in a new W4.
