Might actually be the opposite. Your memory might be normal where the wife has 'exceptional' memory.

Memory is one of those things that people assume everyone else has the same. But fairly recently they have documented some very extreme differences.

Since I am aware of this I was in the position to identify this when I was having a conversation with a woman. I was able to pick up that she had an extraordinary ability to recall events in great detail even to the date when it happened. But convincing her that it was in fact unusual was very difficult.

You can read about one case by looking up the actress 'Marilu Henner'. (Keep in mind that stats related to her represent those identified and not necessarily the number that exist.)
