Well welcome to a super nice hobby, hope you will like it here, and good hunt with finding yourself a spider. Here is some great beginner species for you, and hopefully can calm your wife down. <3 :)

Brachypelma albopilosum
Brachypelma emilia
Brachypelma smithi
Grammostola pulchripes

These are awesome species <3

Welcome to the hobby!!! Grammastolas, brachypelmas, and aphonopelma species are good for beginners and relatively easy to find. How much are u willing to spend?

Well being that I am a beginner I think I should stay on the cheaper side so I can get to know how it is to take care of them

Brachypelma Smithi is my suggestion.

Personally if I was you I'd pay the extra and get a juvenile/sub adult female.
