My first wife could not stand my hobby. If I went to a train show she would give me a time limit to stay at it. Stopping at a train store while on a vacation was a nightmare. (This was just the hobby related things!) Forward to my current wife. She supports my hobby, encourages me to buy things and even insisted we had to have a room for a layout when we were looking for a new home. Also, no time limits at a train show and she comes with me! Things do get better and I wish you the best.
