First...it isn't your duty to please anyone on this forum but YOU.

Second...now you have options. Always a good thing to have options. Just not feeling it today? Catch a ride. Feelin' groovy?! Pedal on.

Third...your wife owning a car is actually the best case for you (sounds like it to me). Cars like to be driven. They don't like being parked and neglected as would be the case if I owned one myself. So your wife keeps the car happy by driving it, likely paying for much/most of it, and you have access. Your wife is happy, the car is happy, you likely will be happy about it soon, and I am happy for you. That is A LOT of happy dude! Roll with it!
