What drives wives crazy (mine at least) is seeing penny sleeves on the counter, cards on the dining room table, etc. I think if you keep your stuff organized and out of the way, you'll have solved half the battle.
Obviously, if it's a money thing, I'd explain to her that there's a lot of expensive hobbies out there. -Cars, motorcycles, antiques, etc. By comparison, cards are relatively inexpensive and take up a LOT less space. There's a lot of worse to spend your time and money-- bars and "dance" clubs (I use that term loosely out of respect to the younger readers) come to mind.

My wife has mentioned several times that when I die, the cards will be in the trash. Which is going to make some rubbish collector a very wealthy man. Many of my friends have mentioned they would take the cards when I die, nice guys. Let me know if your wives are any different then mine, or maybe they are the perfect wife and are into collecting cards with you. Just wondering out loud...........
