That may depend on where you are. Here, in Massachusetts, it doesn't seem to matter who is the nominal owner of the shares. A married couple effectively own the corporation jointly, regardless of who is on the paperwork. I am somewhat dubious of this, particularly if your wife participates in the health insurance.
