  1. Yes, it’s good to have wife nearby but in today’s era carrying the spouse has become a big legal and logistical circus as first you have to have Visas of tens of countries.

    Then the companies charge unrealistic money in name of charges.

    The wife would like to have some independence on ship, like that for Galley to cook sometimes for her taste, but is not always feasible.

    So you may consider on witting about flip side as well.
