The "why" is because a husband/wife relationship makes it much harder for the student to take advice and correction and much more likely the 2 will get mad at each other and want to quit - beyond that, most husbands think they know how to shoot and most don't know crap. Not being actual instructors, they don't know how to shoot or how to teach, so they screw up their student.\
Basically, what xidica said, above.
Yes, he first I've heard. Calm down, I'm not trying to form an argument FOR being my wife's primary teacher. I'm not against her getting training and she will from a qualified instructor.
