"I'm a realist while my wife is more spiritual than I am." An internet client shared this with me recently. He was not embarrassed or defensive; I felt his declaration manifested pride because he had a better handle on real-life issues than his spouse.
It's a comment I often hear (from husbands more typically than wives) and usually provides accurate insight into the speaker and the marriage. I have found that wives are generally more spiritually mature than their husbands are. Yes, it's a generalization, but it's been the case for most couples who have sought me out for marriage help.
