Maybe your wife hasn't set her own public key to ultimate trust in HER 
~/.gnupg installation? Without that, GnuPG cannot start to trust your key. 
The key(s) with ultimate trust is the starting point for trust in all the 
other keys in the keyring - the top of the tree.

Your wife needs to edit her key (I hope you haven't got access to each other's 
secret keys) and use the trust command to set Ultimate.

gpg --edit-key <herkeyid>
(I think).
