I have never hidden my wife. For one thing, she's much too big to throw in the closet. But what I think you mean is that sometimes men hide cash from their wives. I've never done that, but my brother has. His girl steals from him. And when she sees cash, she runs out to buy a new book, game, booze, or drugs, forgetting that they have such needs as food, gas, and rent. Sometimes, you've gotta hide things from the one you love, or in my brother's case, hide things from the one he can't kill because he needs a rock solid alibi.
