I, and I think many others here, just use the term as a known term for "wife" in a joking manner. We don't literally have to obey our wives. We're not 5 years old and they're not our mothers.
OP - Good luck in your search. I agree with taking the wife to a brew pub or 12 and ordering the tasting flights. If she doesn't find anything she likes, then just keep brewing what you like knowing you tried. Not everyone is going to like beer. She should, however, at least respect the fact that you do and support you in your hobbies and interests. She's your wife.
