You guys are WORKING. Wives either chill while you're working or they stay home, is my simplistic view. This is the sort of stuff that costs gigs Larry. You wouldn't let a wife wander into your regular place of employment and start throwing her weight around. Very uncool for mine.

Different story if the singer was caught in a compromising position with the barmaid in the band room, but an innocent kiss while entertaining drunken revellers? The sort of over reaction that makes a band look unprofessional, for mine.

Agree it's a hard one, but it needs to be dealt with. I'd just say to the singer straight up, that his missus has to pull her head in and allow you guys to do your thing, or she doesn't come anymore.
