Slightly similar story here...
My wife has no intention of going to a meeting, despite my occasional hint into a conversation she should see what its all about
She has threatened to throw my r/c stuff away very occasionally, but I know and she knows she wouldn't, it's just her way of saying "spend some time with me and our son" (who isnt old enough to race yet, but it won't be long
Now I make sure I get all the house stuff done first, spend time with then both as much as I can and if I know it's going to be a really big hassle to get racing i'll get her a small present. Then when I know race dates in advance I make sure she knows of them...
The golden phrase here is... Forward planning is forward thinking
Of course, it's hard to arrange a day's racing when you have children, but luckily my parents will happily look after my son when my wife works and I want to race.
On a different note though, my wife (Russian, but speaks very good English) liked to go fishing with me as she could get a sun tan, plus the first time she came she thought I ate what a caught... then I reminded how dirty the water is in the uk,LOL.
