I must say: my wife is very tolerant of my photography. So long as she isn't around. Her kid and my kids (not the same) are grown, so Neuro's suggestion, while excellent, doesn't help me. I have tried to get her interested in photography. A few years ago, we went to Yosemite over New Year's. I set her up with my 30D and the 28-135. I think she took some very credible shots. But she says she doesn't want to be bothered carrying around a big camera. So, I bought her a small Canon point and shoot. She will take some shots on occasion, but not enough to give me time to set up and do what I want to do. And, she always has Paris to remind me of (Honeymoon, I took at least one photo of the Eiffel Tower every day we were there, I never went shopping with her and she incurred a broken arm outside the Louvre, which we didn't get checked out until we got home). On the plus side, she did buy me a 24 TS-E (I, not II, which I don't use nearly enough). And she is OK when I go out for a weekend on my own. But, it is a fine balance when we take a vacation together.
