Clearly, the OPs wife is concerned about something. We don't know if the source of the concern is real or not
Well, there's a couple of possibilities:

#1-MAYBE she's really concerned about something.
#2-MAYBE she's just being a spiteful b!tc# about things. The OP states he is the sole breadwinner, and maybe she just doesn't care, as it doesn't cost her any of her own money.

I've seen both cases, plenty of times.

IF #1 is the case, it's high time to get straight with things.

IF #2 is the case, then two can play that game. Show her what the difference in tax is going to be, and make that her responsiblity.
Don't let her have the checkbook, take away her credit/debit cards, or maybe cut some of her discretionary budget.
