This is what I would do. Start watching Suze Orman's show and Howard Clark's TV shows TOGETHER. join Financial Peace University through your church or on your own TOGETHER. Financial Peace University (FPU) is a product by Dave Ramsey. He is a little bit controversial as far as credit is concerned (he doesn't like credit and equates credit to debt and only "allows" it when purchasing a home financed at 15 years. I like his big picture however) but has some great tools available on his website as well as his books and DVD's and radio show. Do this TOGETHER also. Set some time aside to watch, listen and read these shows as a team. In the begining this may be hard for your wife but with time she will warm up to the idea of being fiscally responsible. Try it, you have nothing to loose and everything to gain.
