The existence of your wife may at times may have to be proved
objectively, for example through presentation of a marriage
certificate for legal purposes. In any case, it's not something prima
facie incredible, like God is for everyone who doesn't have a belief
in that particular god. Someone who hates or is indifferent to your
wife might believe in her existence and her personhood as much as you
do, because the evidence demands it.
