Are you saying that your wife is not "good enough" to use your equipment?
If a Cheapoflex is good enough for her, why not also for you?

My wife and I have shared photo equipment for many years. She uses "my" Ms
and I use "her" R gear. If she had any interest in doing so she would also
use the LTM and MF stuff.

Before my son left home he also shared our gear (at that time Olympus and
Nikon) and took the Olympus gear with him when he left.

Cameras are only tools! (Leicas are VERY NICE tools)  :-)
