He really loves his new model -- he's race changed two characters to it. I created her for him in WoW Model Viewer last year when he decided he wanted to change his undead warrior to a female orc. Not a month into playing the first version of her, he told me he loved her and would have gotten sick of a paler skin or different face.
He now has all three of his mains and one warlock alt of this exact same model:
So you see, the creative wife can be a boon to her stats-loving husband, just as he's a boon to her. I help him with names and designs that he won't get tired of and he gives me gear, spec, and rotation advice.
Which brings me to today's anecdote. Husband didn't have an open character slot to decide on a new name for his shaman-turned-orc, so he asked to test names on one of my open slots to see what was available. I handed him my authenticator and said "My stable is full, but you can delete Sidhe. She was just an attempt at a goblin name." He logged on and asked, "I'm supposed to delete Dustfire, right?"
I turned and glared. "I will kill you."
He cackled. "Sidhe?"
As he tried new names, he said, "I would never actually delete one of your characters. Even if we got divorced. Even if you went insane, killed our cats, and got put in jail. Even if I hated you. That would just be wrong."
I smiled at him. "Agreed."
